Old World Charm with Outstanding Views on ONE Acre…..

7187 Kiewa Valley Highway, Tawonga VIC, Australia
$425,000

Description

The double brick homestead was built in 1887 and is recorded as being the first house to be built in the Tawonga Township by the late John Cooper. Even the bricks were locally made in Tawonga via an old camp oven on Cooper’s farm.

Upon entering the home you can see the work that was put into this property all those years ago. The spacious lounge with its 11ft ceilings, exudes character and charm; the hallway with its original heritage arch – which was delivered to the property via horse & cart, ornate cornices, are just a few of the features of this home.

With four king size bedrooms, again with high ceilings and timber flooring, fireplaces and mantles, these rooms are just waiting to be occupied again. Houses aren’t built like this anymore, with the walls of the rooms disappearing 3 feet into the ground to form an extremely strong and solid foundation. The original kitchen no longer stands due to a renovation in the 1940’s and then again in the 1980s, which saw the bathroom and laundry refurbished at the same time.

Externally there is the “old laundry” “outdoor dunny” and single car garage which has power, concrete floor and is weatherproof. Property is on town water.
The “house-block” on this property consists of a garden which is 130 years in the making, and has been a showpiece for generations. It is jam-packed with an assortment of colourful flowers, shrubs and mature plants along with arches and paths that winds through to the orchard which is filled with mature fruit trees and berries. This orchard has feed many a local family with preserved fruits and jams over the years.

This outstanding property is filled with history from the local area and is offered for sale for the first time in 130 years.
