AUCTION Sat 13th March 11am
Set on a huge 1.48 hectare block right in the quiet village of Cawongla, you can take advantage of the convenience of village living whilst enjoying an idyllic country lifestyle. This late 1800's original Cawongla homestead was built for the workers at the local sawmill using the best hardwoods the mill could supply.

The current owner has retained the original features of the building in restoring the historic home. There are high ceilings, picture rails, timber linings and thick hardwood floors throughout, with original windows and french doors opening out to the wide verandahs on two sides. The three bedrooms are typically very large with those soaring ceilings, and the central hallway features both horizontal and vertical timber linings. More contemporary additions, whilst sympathetic to the home's era, include a wide opening between the lounge & dining rooms, flowing out to a new back deck through lovely Art Nouveau glass doors. From this deck you can sit and admire your lovely acreage - out to the large dam and across fig-tree studded paddocks to the rolling hills beyond.

With great soils and virtually unlimited water you can begin a sustainable life and 'grow your own'. And when you need those few extra supplies the famous Cawongla General Store and its adjoining dining room is literally across the road. The centre of community activity, this store and its large grounds provide a meeting place to connect the locals as in days gone by. Summer picnics and winter nights of quiet music make this a special place indeed.

The owner is close to completing the renovation and has decided to leave the last few details to the new owner. The big ticket items are completed though - a lovely new roof with extensive insulation, new stumps, new decking and railings and a contemporary exterior colour scheme will leave the new owner with more cosmetic choices than building renovation to be done. The large kitchen, whilst functional, is simple and deliberately left as a blank canvas for the new owner, and the beautiful hardwood floors have been left unpolished.

The other big ticket items are a timber garage and an enormous 17m x 7m metal workshed. The latter was at one stage a pottery, and there is a distance between the three structures so 'work' can be separated from home-life. Apart from the huge and very pretty dam there are multiple water tanks and lovely mature specimen trees.
