On two titles, with nearly two acres to play with, the quiet bushland setting has been home to this charming sandstone cottage since the 19th century Cornish miners made Harvey Town their home.

It has the ideal ambience for you to reclaim its long ago era and enjoy the tranquility and nostalgia of a more simple and innocent time.

Sure you’re going to need some elbow grease, rose coloured glasses, and a strong back, but the rewards can be amazing.

The attached allotment gives you the added bonus of possibly building a 21st century home, something current, while you contemplate the labour of love ahead of you; or you could just sit back and enjoy the bushland and the many native birds that visit.

The cottage features four main rooms, fireplace with mantle and pine-lined ceilings but needs a full internal restoration. That’s a lot of elbow grease, patience and a vision you will need to have firmly in place. But the rewards are worth it.

There is ample sandstone on the property to complete the cottage extension. The property has town water, power and a septic system.

Adjoining the cottage is approx. another acre of land with all services at the road edge which could be a possible building site (STCA), as it offers lovely views of the local area. The cottage and land are to be sold together.

The property offers a huge dollop of peace and quiet, yet it is only a five minute drive to Eaglehawk CBD and local schools.
