An absolutely charming home has come onto the market in Cooma, a rare find complete with tennis court, wine cellar and loads of elegance.

No 1 Cromwell Street, Cooma is listed by Graeme Boller at Boller & Company Real Estate for $700,000.

Extensively renovated, you’ll enjoy the impressive sense of space and rich natural light throughout. This is a home that feels solid and has a great history.

Solid walls and high ceilings, with many original features, a lovely Cooma home.

Built in the late 1800s by David Montgomery, the landmark property looks over Cooma township from the hill where the town’s very first houses were built, and has been a loved feature of the landscape for over 100 years. Local builder Mr Montgomery also constructed many of the church steeples in the vicinity.

Two streets from the centre of town, on a large 3759m2 block, the house has some valuable and attractive extras including a three-car garage with three-phase power; manicured gardens and lawns, and a sand tennis court.

Separate casual and formal entertaining areas are a feature of this Cooma home.

Built from local granite stone, with walls over a foot thick, the free-standing, five bedroom home is character-filled and assures ease of living in this sought after Cooma location. Cool in the summer and holding its heat in the winter, each season is enhanced by double-glazed windows and central electric heating.

The versatile floor-plan offers some very flexible family living and accommodation spaces, complemented by several stunning alfresco areas: The perfect home for a family that loves to entertain. Picture yourself as they did at the time of Federation, entertaining local society with a Pimms and a healthy but competitive tennis match!

Listing agent Graeme Boller says that “living in Cooma is great for many reasons. It’s close to Canberra, to ski fields, and just four hours from Sydney, but also it’s a very friendly community.

“Many of the Europeans working on the Snowy Hydro project in the 50s, 60s and 70s brought their families here and their kids and their families are still here, it’s a long-time multi-cultural town.”

The house on the hill faces North but also has views towards the Snowy Mountains.

A residence like this does not come on to the market very often, as these homes are highly esteemed and tightly held. As a bonus, 1 Cromwell Street is also fully furnished.
Features also include a breakfast room, impressive circular driveway, off-street parking and enclosed back yard. There is a sand tennis court and loads of outdoor entertaining area, with sprinklers and a pergola. If you love your wine, there is also an underground cellar.
1 Cromwell Street, Cooma is a rare find, a home in the heart of town but with all the privacy you could ask for.
The property is on sale for $700,000. Contact Graeme Boller on 0402 470 422 or click here for more information.
