For all inspections please enter from the rear of the property in Farnsworth Street.

In almost original condition and resting on a sizeable 1420sqm approx. allotment in the heart of Castlemaine, this circa 1890 stone and brick cottage and outbuildings are ready to be lovingly restored. Set high with commanding views across Castlemaine, its enviable location is within walking distance to the town’s centre for shopping, eateries, schools, train and local attractions.

A once much-loved family home, it retains a traditional floorplan of a central hallway with four rooms, an addition of a kitchen/dining to the rear and external bathroom, laundry and toilet attached to the dwelling. Wide stone walls and recessed windows are features as are the fireplaces in each room. A sympathetic renovation might see the façade and original four-room home restored with a modern extension to the rear. There is certainly plenty of room to establish a sizeable home and still have space for other additions such as shedding, pool or studio.

The bones of the gardens are good with many established trees and plantings, easily reinvigorated with some care and attention. Pathways and garden rooms were a feature of the original layout. The generous block has rear access from Farnsworth Street, creating an ideal opportunity for a potential subdivision, subject to council approvals. A historical home with a block well in excess of a quarter acre in a highly sought after locale is a rare and exciting opportunity.
