Celebrating its centenary in 2015, this faded beauty has remained in the same family since its construction and is now offered for sale as a deceased estate. With appeal to the project-minded owner-occupier or investor, the weatherboard cottage with iron roof is set on a spacious 1526sqm (1/3 acre)block within strolling distance to Dungog's shops, schools and amenities. The cottage is typical of its era and while in need of a full renovation still retains many of its traditional features including wide front and side verandahs with decorative fretwork, pressed-metal ceilings, tongue and groove timber-lined walls, original floorboards and French doors. While requiring re-stumping, the roof is solid, there are no leaks and power and water are connected, offering a liveable home while renovating. There are two double bedrooms, main with Daiken reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a third smaller bedroom ideal for use as a study or conversion to an ensuite for the main bedroom. The internal bathroom has a bath, basin and toilet. The kitchen is basic and with both wood-burning and electric stoves and Daiken reverse-cycle air-conditioning and French doors to the side verandah. Adjacent and also with French doors opening to the side verandah, the comfortable lounge/dining room has an open-fireplace with decorative surround and mantle. Potential off-street parking. There is scope to extend STCA. Having slowly been reclaimed by nature, the once-beautiful garden boasts many mature trees and exotic plants offering an exciting opportunity to reclamation and a return to its former glory.
A convenient location and an opportunity only limited by imagination combine to deliver an exciting prospect to restore, renovate and create a dream home or astute investment in a vibrant Hunter town within easy reach of the region's major commercial centres and notable sites.
