This property may look like it belongs in a period drama set in the 1500s, but it has plenty of reasons to attract modern buyers.
Ray White Bowral Licensed Real Estate Agent Charlotte Hanrahan said 75 Bowral Street is a well-known feature of the town, lending itself to prospective owners making their mark.
“It’s steeped in character. It’s very much a recognisable house in Bowral.”
The property, known as Hathaway, gives easy access to town while also offering a sense of privacy and seclusion, Ms Hanrahan said.
“It’s pretty much right in town, so you can walk to supermarkets, to all the great cafes, shops and restaurants that Bowral has.”
Originally built in the 1930s, the four-bedroom and two-bathroom home has a façade inspired by the Tudor era.
The steeply pitched roof, gorgeous timber-adorned gables, exposed brick trim and planter boxes at the front of the home all catch your eye.
The home has been outfitted with all the twenty-first-century creature comforts to add to the modern appeal without compromising on character.
Featuring plantation shutters, heated floors in several rooms, ducted gas heating in part of the house and a reverse-cycle air conditioner, the home is well set up for comfort year-round.
Hathaway also boasts two rooms with electric blinds, double glazing on windows at the front of the house and gas and slow-combustion wood fireplaces to help chase away the worst of the winter chill.
High ceilings, refined decorative cornices and dual driveway access with two off-street parking spaces add to the list of features.
If you’re looking to enjoy a slower lifestyle, sit and relax with a cup of coffee in an extension built onto the back of the house, looking out over the established garden and leafy trees around the house.
“The extension has low-set feature cathedral windows taking in the pretty views of the garden,” Ms Hanrahan said.
Additionally, the house features a 24 sqm self-contained studio at the rear of the block with separate street entrance, providing a distinct space away from the main house for guests or family to enjoy.
“If people did want to use it as an Airbnb, they could enter via Bendooley Street, walk straight into the studio and the people in the house would have no idea that they were even there, so it’s very private from that aspect as well.”
“Hathaway is a rare find as it brings together a Tudor-inspired façade and a central location for something not to be missed. A handful of Tudoresque style homes are dotted around Bowral, but this one’s prominent location sets it apart.”
