Period cottage with 50 acres and river frontage for sale at $665,000

Glynis Quinlan 12 February 2018

An idyllic country property has come onto the market which could be the perfect buy for someone dreaming of peaceful farm living combined with having the convenience of a town centre just 14 minutes’ drive away.

The period cottage not far from Braidwood comes with 50 acres of land for horses, cows or sheep to graze and the added attraction of Shoalhaven River frontage complete with sandy beach flats.

On the market for $665,000, the property features a lovely cottage which was built in the 1900s and would make an attractive home – although more work is needed to bring it up to its former glory.

The cottage features a large open plan living and dining area, a modern kitchen and a renovated bathroom with separate toilet.

There is also lots of room for a family or those who love guests as there are four bedrooms and a sunroom.

Capping that off is a separate two-room studio that needs repairing and renovating but could make a great art studio, home office or area for more guest accommodation.

Then there are the sheds! These include a four open-bay machinery shed with cement floor and power, a four-car garage, and a four open-bay carport with dirt floor. There’s also a round yard, two portable stables and holding yards, and multiple chook pens for those who enjoy fresh eggs.

Listing agent Kelly Allen of Luton Properties says the property has the Shoalhaven River as its North West boundary complete with sandy beach flats.

“The fencing is good with water being pumped from the river to a water trough and house water tanks. The land is 100 per cent cleared – arable – and would suit horses, cows or sheep,” Ms Allen said.

“Other features include two large cement water tanks for the house water and cattle trough in the open paddock for the stock, mains power, septic tank and the school bus stops at the road.”

Ms Allen, who lives and works in Braidwood, sounds like she would like to buy the property herself if her attractive description of it on the Luton Properties website is anything to go by.

“Dreaming of lazing beside the sparkling river in the sunshine, peace and quiet in the fresh country air or enjoying the sandy beach flats with the kids?” Ms Allen asks prospective buyers.

“Maybe fishing and having a paddle, strolling through the paddocks back to the country cottage, starting the fire and pouring yourself a glass of wine or simply just flicking on the kettle for a cuppa?” she continues.

If that description entices you and you are interested in finding out more or booking an inspection then please phone Ms Allen on 0466 632 696 or email her at The property is located at 1774 Cooma Road, Braidwood, and you can click here for more details.
