Another SOLD by Elders BerryLocated on a rare extra large block (1,783sqm) just a short stroll to all the amenities of Berry village, this charming historic weatherboard cottage is around 100 years old and has been home to the same family for the past 32 years.
Filled with warmth and character the three-bedroom cottage features timber floors, internal weatherboard lining and original beamed ceiling to the living areas and is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens that create complete privacy and are home to many birds. Willows and jacarandas, magnolias and camellias create both shade and floral displays and a wisteria arbour and agapanthus walk are amazing sights to behold when in flower. The gardens, which have been featured in the annual Berry Garden Festival, also include an established vegetable garden protected by netting and a chook pen.
From the front door, a central hallway leads to two front bedrooms, the main bedroom with floor-to-ceiling built-in robe, then through to the 3rd bedroom then bathroom and laundry. This then opens out into a living area divided by elegant French doors with Art Deco etched glass panels, flowing out to a huge timber deck/alfresco living space with a carport that can double as an entertaining area.
The current owners renovated the kitchen, adding new timber windows to take advantage of garden views. The country-style timber kitchen features custom-made stainless steel benchtops, a double sink, a dishwasher and stainless steel cooker and rangehood.
"We loved the quaintness of the cottage when we bought it," say the current owners, "and have done a lot of work on it since. We've had a beautiful time raising our family here, with lots of backyard cricket and cubby house building in the big backyard. It's only two blocks from the main street of Berry here but feels like you are out in the country, with views of the mountains and lots of birdlife. The back deck is north-facing and it's just a gorgeous place to sit in the sun of an afternoon.
"Also, what's not to love about Berry? It's a beautiful community here."
Imagine a country lifestyle where the kids can walk to school, it's a short stroll to an amazing range of boutique shops and stylish cafes and to the local markets on a Saturday morning and just a 10-minute drive to secluded beaches, then call us for an inspection of this idyllic property at your earliest convenience.
