Quaint cottage in the heart of Latrobe

Description

What a location! With only 30 seconds walk along the 'Sheean Walk' and you're in the main street of Latrobe, this property is ideal for those looking for convenience. The growing township of Latrobe has everything you will need and you can enjoy the benefit of walking to the supermarkets, post office, newsagency, doctor's surgery, chemist and variety of specialty stores. If you need to go a little further afield it is only a very short drive to the two primary schools, high school and the Latrobe hospital. With all this close by, this property is truly situated in the ideal location.
'Platypus Creek Cottage' was built in 1863 and has stood the test of time, with the option to leave the property as is and add your own touches or even renovate to bring the home into more modern times.
Walking up the front stairs and onto the welcoming verandah, you can already feel that 'homely' feeling that only homes of this vintage can offer.
The two bedrooms are situated at the front of the home and are both a generous size. One features a pressed tin ceiling while the other has a timber ceiling and an open fireplace, all charming traits reminiscent of homes built in this era.
Tas Oak polished floorboards run throughout the home and lead you through to the lounge, complete with high ceilings, open fireplace, ornate cornices and ceiling rose.
Off the lounge you will find the family bathroom. Being large in size, this room could also have potential to become a 3rd bedroom should a renovation be your interest. Featuring a pressed tin ceiling, claw foot bath, pedestal and separate shower… all beautiful features adding to the character of the property.
At the rear of the home is the kitchen/dining area. Although small, the area is functional and offers a free-standing Saxon woodheater, perfect to keep the home warm through those chilly winter months.
Accessed via the kitchen or the lounge is the undercover rear deck. This area is the perfect spot for a barbeque and could even be closed in to add extra room to the house (STCA).
On a good block size of 700m2 with the opportunity to landscape and plant gardens or just to leave as is. For the astute investor there is the opportunity to build a unit on the property (STCA).
Bursting with potential and with an unrivalled location, this property won't last long! Please call the listing agent Wendy Squibb today on 0417 059 924 to secure your private inspection.
