The grace and charm of an earlier era come to the fore in an 1870s’ mid-Victorian cottage for sale in the heart of Bungendore.
‘Saint Michael’s’ at 71 Ellendon Street has kept the facade and period details of the original cottage but they have been blended with a sympathetic extension completed over the last 10 years.
Set on a large 2,923 square metre block, the residence enjoys large north-facing gardens with potential for subdivision subject to council approval.
The three-bedroom two-bathroom home is for sale through expressions of interest which close on August 1 and has an estimated price guide of between $840,000 and $910,000.
It is located less than 300 metres from the historic village of Bungendore’s cafes, restaurants and shops, and only about a half-hour drive from Canberra.
Listing agent Michael Fay of McGrath Dickson said the home has a strong street presence because of its historic facade.
“It also stands out because of its sympathetic extension with the quite large living areas, and because of the development potential down the track,” Mr Fay said.
He said the home has a lovely historic feel and features original elements including high ceilings, sash windows, timber floors and two wood-burning fireplaces.
The original cottage houses two large bedrooms and a spacious kitchen with custom period cabinetry and a porcelain under-bench sink.
This flows through to an open plan sunroom and living room with a slow combustion fire and large French doors which provide a significant amount of light and views over the gardens.
The extension also includes a spacious master suite with a large ensuite and spa bath, while a claw foot bath features in the main bathroom.
The property also has a double carport and provides ample storage through large sheds.
