Great weatherboard cottage with wonderful ambience, fantastic bones and room to add value in a most appealing price bracket

Situated down a quiet, private driveway off beautiful, leafy Dunsford Street in the gorgeous village of Lancefield you will find Mortlake. Even though it has been relocated it fits perfectly into the area and looks as though it’s been here forever with its high gabled roofline, inviting front verandah and rambling cottage front garden. It has all new concrete stumps, new bearers and joists, has been rewired, replumbed and abounds with character, style and charm. It has high pressed metal ceilings, timber lining boards, dado rails with painted timber beneath, deeply patinated original timber floors and large rooms all bathed in natural light. There is a sense of space, lightness and charm throughout and in all the 3 double bedrooms plus the bathroom retains good form and function, marrying character with a modern twist.

The country kitchen is filled with the old and the new with a stainless steel dishwasher, built-in wine fridge plus a double porcelain sink, 5 burner 900 mm stainless steel stove, pressed metal splash-backs to name a few features. The double French doors lead out to the rear garden which is waiting for the right person to complete the garden, add the planters, a few veggies and perhaps some chooks. The area is compact but large enough to add the country feel without being a slave to the garden.

There is plenty of room for a garage or carport at the front, perfect for the end of the drive that has been laid with attractive white gravel behind lovely wrought iron gates.

This property is a must to inspect for those who love old world charm and want to enter the market in a reasonable price range and are keen to improve their capital.
