About this listing
Come inside I have someone I want you to meet....Little Eva is over 100 years old and is one of Williamstown's original colonial cottages dating back to the 1890's believed to originally been built by the Bain family who migrated from Scotland. She has been through numerous bushfires, the Barossa gold rush, the great depression and two world wars and is still going strong. As soon as you enter through the old rusty gate and step onto the veranda, you feel her calming presence and can't wait to find out more about her. Rightfully so she's starting to show her age and is getting a bit weary, this beautiful old soul is now ready for another custodian to make her feel special once again. So, don't just purchase any old property, purchase a piece of Williamstown history and entangle yourself in part of her legacy.
The previous owners have cared for her with some new wiring, installation of a split system air conditioner, polished floors and carpet to the lounge room. The front 4 rooms off the long hallway consist of 3 huge bedrooms and a lounge room with all rooms having open fireplaces.
Towards the rear of the home, you will find the meals area and a country style Kitchen which has been updated with stainless steel appliances including electric cooktop, dishwasher, wall oven and grill.
The bathroom is neat and tidy with a separate shower, vanity and toilet. The large laundry is positioned off the kitchen so it can be utilised as a panty or storage area, which has access to the 3x3m circular shaped cellar originally used to store and preserve the families produce.
The rear yard is minimal maintenance with a full-length veranda for entertaining, storage shed and access to the rear provided through the single carport. Positioned only meters from the main street with everything at your fingertips including the general store, hotels, medical clinic, primary school, post office and pharmacy. This property would be ideal for couples looking for their first property, holiday home or perhaps a bed and breakfast subject to council consent.
Don't be shy Little Eva would love a visitor so contact me today to arrange to meet her, you will be glad you did.
