CENTRAL COTTAGE ON LARGE LOT
Located only a 4-minute drive to the CBD and 500 metres to St John of God Hospital, "Idler Cottage" presents an opportunity to secure a rare piece of Bendigo's history.
Situated in a quiet, private street and hidden behind a high hedge, the home sits on a huge allotment approximately 1165m² with great potential for subdivision, renovation or extension (STCA). Constructed in red brick and stone, the former mine manager's residence oozes rustic charm.
Original features include cast-iron lace trim to the front verandah and high, pine-lined ceilings and open fireplaces with timber over mantles.
From the elevated front verandah, the front door opens to the traditional central hallway leading to two front bedrooms followed by central lounge and third bedroom.
A weatherboard addition includes the kitchen and dining area with dado lining boards, 900mm gas cooker and access to a wisteria covered timber deck on one side and sunny courtyard on the other. A large family room overlooking the courtyard includes wall-mounted air conditioner and gas heater. The bathroom offers shower over the bath, toilet and vanity.
Externally, extensive greenery shields the house and deck from the street, there's ample off-street parking and side driveway to the well-fenced, big backyard.
Don't procrastinate; properties offering the exceptional potential and convenience of this choice location don't wait.
