Nestled in the rolling foothills of mighty Mt Cooroy on an exceptionally pretty five acres, this historic weatherboard cottage will capture your soul and fire your imagination in a heartbeat. Likely once utilized as farm workers or caretaker's lodgings, the property is bordered by larger acreage properties and situated to the very end of a peaceful country lane one kilometre off Sunrise Road. The wooded slopes and rocky face of the mountain come into view as you swing in the magnolia lined drive and approach the knoll top house.
The machinery shed stands on an oversize slab under the shade of fig and towering blue quondong. A walk through the fully fenced grounds reveals a northern slope inviting a future build on this most manageable slice of hinterland paradise, however the surprising level of accommodation and authentic character of the single hip roof house echoes its own unique character. Open and covered decks look over a dam in the lower paddock, while perimeter stands of tallowood and lofty pines attract galahs and cockatoos for a social feed. A soft exterior colour scheme is accentuated by a colorbond roof and crisp white trim to casement windows and framed glass doors.
Jacaranda, Poinciana, Frangipani and Mango dot the grounds, open decks edge pretty country gardens and light streams in from the north-eastern aspect. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with another guest bedroom (4th) or study branching off the brick paved courtyard. A separate timber clad outbuilding with barn doors would make an ideal art studio. The patina of hardwood floors exude warmth and a timber bench kitchen facing the mountain has stainless five burner gas range and under bench dishwasher. High ceilings and plenty of windows catch light and a south western deck off a family room has front row seats to amazing sunsets over the mountain peak. Owners are moving overseas for family connection; don't let this property pass you by.
