A timeless beauty that makes you feel like you have stepped back into the yesteryear.
Situated in the picturesque village of Ashby on a large 1017m2 block with beautiful well established gardens. Featuring a rustic timber fence at the front with a sandstone path leading to the front door of this cosy weatherboard cottage.
With a covered front porch, bullnose covered verandah at the rear and two open decks off either side of the home, there is no shortage of spaces to relax depending on the time of day.
Once inside you will appreciate the wide polished timber floors and high ceilings. Whilst most of the rooms also feature timber walls and ceilings, some of the walls in the kitchen and dining area have been lined with zincalume that adds to its rustic charm and compliments the stone bench tops.
This section of the home overlooks the country style gardens at the front of the property and from here you walk through to a large well lit lounge room with a wood heater to warm these living areas during the cooler months.
From here a set of double doors takes you out to the rear verandah where you can enjoy views of the Clarence River and great nor-easterly breezes.
Originally the home offered 3 bedrooms but now only has two with built-ins in the main, however you could covert the sitting room back to a 3rd bedroom if you wish.
Off the 2nd bedroom is a closed in verandah that could also be converted into an ensuite or walk-in robe, as there is only the one bathroom with a shower and claw foot bath.
Set to one side of the home is the original single garage that would make a great studio and on the other side of the home is a large colour bond shed with power connected, remote access plus a staircase at the rear that leads to an upstairs loft that also captures great river views.
Other improvements include an old stable for additional undercover storage, avocado and citrus trees, water tanks and ample yard space for a boat and caravan.
If you are looking for a simple country lifestyle with a home that oozes charm and character, you will be impressed with this property.
