This quaint mudbrick miner’s cottage sits on a quiet, wide street in an elevated position just minutes from the centre of Eaglehawk and many amenities including cinema, recreation centre, eateries, banks, schools and more. The sizeable allotment offers dual vehicle access from a private rear lane via automatic gates.
Set back from the road, the position of the property offers a feel of privacy from the moment you enter the front gate. The wide verandah is reminiscent of the gold rush era, and the 1800s mudbrick build offers a feeling of history in the front two rooms. The front door opens directly into the lounge. Timber flooring, sash window, cast-iron fireplace and timber mantle offer great heritage detail and off the lounge is a spacious bedroom with built-in robes running across one wall.
A door from the lounge opens into a spacious and light open plan kitchen and diner. The dining space enjoys a large bay window and built-in seating and the partially renovated kitchen offers ample storage and modern appliances. Off the kitchen is a second bedroom with storage constructed and awaiting completion. At the rear of the home is a mudroom and laundry; a bathroom with new fittings; and a small room that could be used as an additional bedroom or home office.
Doors lead to the rear garden from both the dining space and the laundry. A large decked area is perfect for entertaining, and a tandem carport provides extra height for caravan or machinery. The rear yard is a blank canvas, with a sizeable shed offering ample storage for vehicles or tools. Stairs lead up to a second floor in the shed, with two spacious rooms – the perfect space for studio, workshop or storage. Double electric sliding gates allow vehicle access to the yard from the back laneway.
