Country Charm in the Heart of Inverleigh
Have you been dreaming of a tree change? Sitting on approx. 2058m2, this circa-1880 cottage invites you to move straight in or extend to create your dream country haven (STCA). Located within the heart of Inverleigh, with Township Zoning (TZ), this property also presents an irresistible choice for businesses owners (STCA).
Inside, high ceilings and polished floorboards reflect the home's rich history. A wood heater creates a cosy ambience in the front lounge, while the sunroom opens onto the north-facing pergola for relaxed outdoor living. So why not sit back and admire the picturesque outlook towards the river? Or enjoy an evening wine on the lawn as you watch the sunset over the church spire? The original stove adds a rustic touch to the dining/kitchen zone, which also features stainless steel appliances (dishwasher, wall oven, gas cooktop). Two bedrooms (one with built-in robes) share close access to the bathroom. A split-system air conditioner and ceiling fans provide extra comfort.
Children have plenty of room to roam and explore in the spacious backyard, where the old-world orchard invites you to enjoy persimmons, quinces, mulberries and more. You'll love that the rear paddock is home to three remarkable and ancient River Red Gum trees. The front driveway provides access to the approx. 6m x 11.9m garage, while rear vehicle access via Cambridge Street is another huge plus.
The home has been lovingly maintained and improved over the past ten years, with updates including re-wiring and a top-of-the-range Aqua Nova septic system (put in place to support the future house plans). Buyers will appreciate that architectural plans and permits have been prepared for a home extension (main bedroom and kitchen) and a separate Japanese-themed studio.
This idyllic setting places everything you need virtually on your doorstep. Inverleigh Primary School and the local shops are just down the road, while sporting grounds and the riverside playground are a short stroll away. An approx. 30-minute drive will place you in the heart of Geelong, while an approx. 20-minute drive will find you on the Ring Road heading towards Melbourne or the Surf Coast.
