A Touch of Federation

Imagine all the romance of a cottage-style "up and down house" from the turn of the 1900's. Imagine the toots of the paddle steamers as they transported goods up and down the Murray, right outside your windows! Imagine stepping out of your front door to be right in the thick of a now-very-sleepy country town on the river! Imagine that very same building, with all the history and character and patina of age, today! Imagine some very important modern improvements, like heating and cooling, underpinning and painting, kitchen facilities and more!
Looking so grand from the exterior, the interior is surprisingly intimate, and cottagy. They lived "smaller" back then! Three bedrooms: two up, one down, a cosy lounge and some nooks and crannies to make into a snug or a mini-library or storage space; a roomy kitchen (they needed them like that back then, when all the prep was done at home!). An immaculate bathroom is a 1980-1990's update, and there's also an alcove that could be a walk through pantry. Laundry facilities are still outside and downstairs, with potential to move up and inside if desired. Two cellars, under the kitchen, naturally temperature controlled with rammed earth walls and earthern floor still! A rear verandah has beautiful outlooks across the river to Corowa and the boating sheds. There is a quaint patch of back yard, and an extended concrete parking area which has room to construct a garage (STCA). The property drops away from here down toward the river level. There is a nearer level area at the Cadell Terrace level that presents good opportunities to provide additional storage and / or parking areas. The river itself is about 100m away, across Cadell Terrace and the grounds of the Riverside Motel that sits right on the river banks. Mooring points are not that far away, mostly on the Corowa side. You will be comfortable here, and there is much potential to stamp your own mark on this charming piece of local history.
