Historic Gold Rush-era Cottage and Farmlet
This is what they call the GOOD LIFE….. peace and quiet and a quaint farmlet, only 15 minutes (approx.) from historic Braidwood. Enjoy a relaxing country lifestyle in peaceful Majors Creek village in this gold-rush era cottage that’s set on a generous 2,568sqm block (approx.). It was originally operated as a general store and bakery and has been lovingly transformed into a unique residence that will thrill the modern homesteader with established veggie gardens and plenty of space for your furry, feathered and fleecy friends.
Stroll to the local pub, post office and school bus stop from your doorstep, and its just 15 minutes to all major amenities in historic Braidwood and less than 90 minutes to Canberra CBD.
Enter via the charming covered porch thats the perfect place to sit and enjoy sunsets as neighbouring horses graze beside the creek.
Continue into the main living room that features timber flooring, raked timber ceiling, piano, and toasty slow-combustion wood fireplace for cosy winter evenings.
The adjoining tiled dining area features an antique wood-burning Rayburn stove, a leafy corner outlook and sliding door access into the delightful private courtyard.
Step up into the recently renovated modern farmhouse-inspired kitchen that features a 900mm SMEG five-burner stainless steel gas stove, and the adjacent bathroom is well presented with floor-to-ceiling tiles and a separate toilet.
The king-sized master bedroom is off the main living area through double doors. It features a high, vaulted timber ceiling, and an independent front entry. The original brick fireplace creates a relaxing parents’ retreat, and a convenient connecting door into the second bedroom is ideal for a nursery or children’s bedroom.
An office space is also off the main living area and features a built-in reclaimed hardwood desk and wireless NBN, perfect for working from home.
Step up into the rumpus or second living room that is currently used as a music room and art studio. Handcrafted rough-hewn local pine stairs connect up to a dedicated yoga space.
The rustic third bedroom/guest room transports you back to the gold rush-era with its striking original bakery oven and potbelly stove. It also opens into its own courtyard area with a beautiful grape-vined covered pergola.
Enjoy sunny summer barbeques under the shady mulberry tree, harvest your dinner from the established veggie gardens with a view, and pick home-grown apples, cherries and figs. A fenced paddock with barn, chicken coop and water tanks is set up as your own mini farm, and near-new professional perimeter fencing secures the property for pets.
A huge shed offers plenty of storage space plus a powered workshop, and seven rainwater tanks plus an on-site well with electric pump ensures constant water supply.
Gated off-street parking is for three cars plus space for your boat, caravan or trailer. The garage/laundry is currently set up as a games room and gym.
