Meander the countryside markets, roll up your sleeves and enjoy harvesting fresh veggies, tend to the chooks, take an evening stroll along the myriad of nearby beaches, laze on the back deck and treat your friends to a long lunch with fine wine or savour the delights of nearby restaurants and cafes. Life in the coastal country town of historical Milton couldn’t be sweeter.
Situated on just under one acre, c.1868, this quaint country cottage has undergone a stunning restoration. Attention to detail and numerous period features combine to create the most charming of country residences. Picture perfect gardens lead to the front porch complete with original coach lights, feature sandstock Milton bricks, shutters, dual chimneys and a high-pitched gable roof with timber fretwork common of a bygone era.
As you step foot inside, whitewashed interiors and rich timber flooring create a relaxed and soothing ambience and allow the cottages’ unique features to shine. Colonial double hung timber windows maximise the natural light and open to vistas of cottage gardens and the lush Milton countryside. A whimsical and creative design, this two bedroom floor plan comes with an additional sleepout or study and an abundance of living and outdoor space.
The kitchen and dining are subtly lit by copper light shades from Fat Shack Vintage. Brass kitchen tapware, an Italian sink and Mother of Pearl heritage handles are complimented by stunning marble benchtops. The luxurious bathroom is fitted with British Imperial pedestal basin, white subway tiles and a frameless glass shower screen. With 10’ high ceilings, the living areas provide ample space for the open fireplaces adorned with hand crafted mantles. Rich textures of original sandstock bricks blend with emerald green natural slate tiles and white French colonial doors which lead to the rear covered entertaining deck.
This curiously shaped block allows for infinite opportunities for the creative and artistic mind, design a market garden, maybe purchase some miniature goats or Highland cattle to maintain the fertile paddocks, possibly build a guest cabin or art studio, it’s your wonderland, your next adventure, you are only limited by your imagination.
