Sale details over time - Charming and Historic Evandale Cottage

This quaint character cottage, situated behind a pretty hawthorn hedge in a wandering 'secret' garden and located in the centre of the popular heritage village of Evandale, provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in all the old world charm of the Georgian period. The original structure is one of the oldest in Evandale and was built for the Police Superintendent circa 1835 with bricks made locally by convict gangs - what a history! In one of the most desirable positions in town, the land alone (1145m2 approx) makes for a sound investment.
The home has been tastefully updated, while maintaining the charisma of both Georgian and Victorian periods. Featuring a bull-nosed verandah, iron lace, stained glass, original cedar joinery, original fireplaces, polished floors and quirky attic rooms - the list goes on! Offering 3-4 bedrooms, large 2 way bathroom with claw-foot bath and decorative pressed metal surrounds, and potential separate guest accommodation with extra bathroom in the east wing and formal dining.
