This beautiful 3 bedroom home was built in 1913 by renowned local architect George Moore who also built a number of other prominent buildings throughout Bellingen including the Police Station, the Courthouse and the historic Hammond and Wheatley building.
Built from local hardwood with cedar doors and windows, the house is solid, has great presence and is delightful to live in. Tastefully renovated, this charming home has polished timber floors, 10 foot high ceilings throughout and timeless features only found in a period home.
Two of the bedrooms have “French doors” which open directly onto the verandah and the large lounge room has a brand new “Coonara” slow combustion wood fire.
The bathroom is in period style, has a skylight/starlight and boasts a fabulous “two person bath”.
The “eat in” country style kitchen is set off by a large walk-in pantry and a beautiful Baltic Pine cabinet. The kitchen opens directly onto a huge covered outdoor living space which is surrounded by lush gardens. A paved courtyard then leads you to the large backyard with established fruit trees, vegetable patch, mountain views and rear lane access. (There is also plenty of room for chooks - if you fancy fresh eggs!)
With verandahs all around there is always a perfect place to sit and be warm or cool, depending on the season. There is also a separate laundry and a large carport with a connecting garden shed/storage room.
Situated on a corner block and opposite a lovely park, it has fantastic street appeal and is only a short walk to the vibrant Bellingen main street, cafes, restaurants, shopping centre, schools, doctors, churches and library.
This property has only changed hands 3 times in 100 years. If you are looking for a special and unique home filled with character and lovingly restored…this one is a must to inspect.
