Charming Cottage Right Near The River
A great little country home to enjoy the great country lifestyle from! Located on the service road of a popular street in the lovely community of Bridgewater-on-Loddon, this 1950s weatherboard home is an easy walk to the river and in to the centre of the town.
Access the main entry via the neat front garden and new front deck. Indoors, there are ample original features including high ceilings, picture railing, elaborate decorative cornice and beautiful leadlight windows.
To the left of the entry are two bedrooms. The first has an air conditioner and the second, a built-in robe. At the end of the hall is a family bathroom with a skylight providing plenty of natural light.
To the right of the entry is a cosy lounge with a wood burning heater and this leads through to a small second living space, also with a wood burning heater – ideal for keeping the whole house warm in the winter. At the rear of the home is a sizeable country kitchen and dining room, also with a skylight adding extra natural light to the space. Original cabinets provide ample storage and are painted a neutral white with timber benchtops adding to the country feel.
Sliding doors off the kitchen open in to a large mud room with a linen cupboard and doors out to the backyard, and this room also opens through to a large and light laundry with a separate toilet.
Outside, a huge undercover al fresco area is ideal for entertaining. A small garden shed with power to one side is a perfect workshop or great for extra storage, and to the other side, a fernery provides additional shade to the outside space.
A large gate on the driveway gives secure access to the backyard from the front and the long carport offers protection from the elements. The driveway leads down to a 6 x 4m single shed and behind this is a smaller shed, open workshop, wood shed and chook house running along the side of the property.
The level backyard also includes raised garden beds and established native planting.
