THE WOODCUTTERS COTTAGE
Located in the heart of Murdunna, this lovingly restored cottage is surrounded by trees providing privacy and a bush land feel. The devoted owner of many years has meticulously maintained the home and in recent years it has been re wired, re plumbed and was re roofed in 1996.
The sheltered front verandah leads via a celery top door into the lounge which is lined with timber milled from trees off the property which encase hand tooled windows. The Baltic pine floor has just been re sealed.The two way wood box feeds the potbelly wood heater which nestles into a brick fireplace.
The kitchen has Blackwood cabinetry throughout and the Stringybark bench top was milled from local forest timber. The electric stove is covered by an efficient range hood and a pantry is tucked behind a dividing wall.
There are two good sized bedrooms, the main with 3 double power points and a smaller study or nursery which was originally a bunk room with an opening window for each bunk in the days when kids spent most of their time playing outside. Stuart, the seller, happily recalls using these windows to escape to the great outdoors when staying in the house as a kid.
Down the hall which has a large linen cupboard to a separate toilet with its own sink set into a slab of golden Peppermint and a bathroom featuring a deep bath with a shower over it, vanity unit and a hot water airing cupboard and two original laundry troughs. Slate tiles lead out through the back hall to a mud room with space for boots, coats and hats before heading out to the back porch.
Shade cloth shelters the gravelled path and entrance to the sturdy shed which features good natural light, a concrete floor, long work bench and power.
Priced to sell, this appealing cottage is set well back from the road and is next door to a reserve and close handy to the shop and bus stop.
The new walk around the foreshore of King George Sound virtually starts at the front gate. Grab a coffee at the cafe next door and start exploring.
