Heart & History

“Merlot” was a two bedroom cottage built in Herberton in 1917. In 1940, in an incredible feat for this time period, this beautiful home was split in two and moved by bullock drays to the heart of Atherton, where it was rejoined on a quarter acre block. Merlot then had an additional third bedroom, office and verandah built on, adding to its Federation charm. During renovations original features stayed intact, such as the traditional high ceilings and polished timber floors. Merlot has a unique history just waiting for a new home owner to boast about at dinner parties. The kitchen is open plan with timber bench tops, just waiting for that finishing touch. The large open plan dining and living area, along with the beautiful timber decked semi enclosed verandah, are perfect for entertainment. With the public pool, the IGA Supermarket, the library, and schools a short distance away,this home would suit the first home buyer or the new family home.

Other features include:

Established gardens and trees

Newly installed electric hot water system

Wood burner

Small workshop and wood shed

Security Screens

New colour bond side fence

Roof fully replaced in 2006
