Charming and lovingly restored Miners cottage - perfect weekender
Over the past 13 years this charming miners cottage has been lovingly restored and renovated by its owners and is today presented as a perfect weekender or permanent home.
This home dates back to the 1890’s where it was originally built in the town centre, Daylesford Historical Society shows photos from 1910 with members of the Daylesford Bowling Club, the home was used as the Club rooms for the bowling club prior to it being relocated to its current location in the 1960’s.
Upon entering the front gate, you are greeted with a low maintenance garden and stone pathway that leads you down to the bright yellow front door that sets the intrigue for what lays beyond. Entering the north facing lounge and dining areas that are flooded with natural light from the French doors and windows you are also greeted by the original central chimney that provides some segregation from these 2 entertaining rooms. This chimney still houses the old woodstove. The large 2 double bedrooms on the southside are beautifully presented along with quality carpets and neutral colour palettes.
The kitchen is an example of the craftsmanship that has been applied throughout this restoration project with the timber joinery on the benches and cabinetry.
The light and bright bathroom blends the period romanticism with the modern creature comforts with its freestanding slipper bath. The home has 2 decks, one off the lounge room and the large entertainers deck at the rear which looks over the yard and on to the Wombat State Forest. The separate office/3 bedroom is also accessed from this deck in addition to a workshop/shedding.
The cottage has been successful on the holiday let market, then as a permanent home followed by a weekender and most recently as a permanent rental. The property is only minutes from central Daylesford and Victoria Park. An inspection will delight.
