If you want old-world charm, modern features and a cosy feeling, head down the tree-lined driveway and enter ‘The Willows’.
Originally built in 1890, the homestead at 130 Carlaminda Road in Cooma is a private and peaceful oasis nestled among established gardens and rolling hills. The expansive five-bedroom, three-bathroom estate is rich in history and exudes charm.
The homestead is heritage listed and has been beautifully maintained, appropriately updated, and is now ready for the next chapter in its storied life.
The homestead stretches over 450 sqm and includes two offices, a den, a room that’s currently used as a salon, a large billiards/additional living room, not to mention a three-bay undercover carport that’s attached to the house.
“You don’t see houses like this one every day. It is something else,” said Henley Property agent Rowan Nickson.
“There really is a grand feeling when you walk in. The wide hallway and elevated ceilings help to encourage that feeling.”
Upon entering the massive homestead, you are greeted by magnificent 11-foot cedar-clad ceilings, a grand hallway, plus original feature fireplaces with beautifully crafted mantles.
A large kitchen, dining and family living space have been added to the house to bring modern open-plan styling to the unmistakable country charm.
Each of the five large bedrooms has its own robe; four of the five bedrooms are located at the front of the home, with the fifth connected to the office at the end of the entrance hall.
All of the spacious bedrooms maintain the homestead’s unique styling.
As you’d expect, the master bedroom is the most impressive, boasting a walk-in robe, an updated ensuite and a bay window toward the front of the room that looks out onto the property’s beautiful tree-lined entranceway.
The gardens are luscious and leave more than enough space for anything you could want to do.
Across its 6.9 acres, you’ll find reminders of the property’s grand history, from the shearing shed and granite barn to a meat shed and stables.
Rowan says the gardens could host events, house animals or even put your own touch on the property.
“The granite barn is a perfect place to hold events such as weddings, and there is a stable in the garden.
“The granite barn offers so much potential to host events, accommodate businesses, or additional space for the growing family.”
This beautiful property is located just five minutes from Cooma’s town centre, and is perfect for a large family.
The first open day is on Saturday (19 March) from 10 am to 11 am.
