12 Campbell Street Newstead VIC 3462
Sarah’s Cottage - Circa 1880 on 2000sqm12 Campbell Street, Newstead
A beautiful example of early architecture and retaining many original features, the property has served as a family home, weekend retreat and even a productive orchard in its interesting past, any of which could be replicated today. The long rectangular block and angled northerly aspect would work perfectly with the ideals of permaculture for those looking to create a self-sustainable environment and it would be fantastic as a weekend getaway being central to all the Goldfields region attractions, the spa country of Daylesford and Hepburn, 15 minutes to Castlemaine, 10 minutes to Maldon and with easy access to Melbourne via the Calder Freeway.
Presently the home consists of three comfortable bedrooms around a central lounge with solid fuel heater that opens onto the sitting room with open fire place and built-in book shelves. Inviting, the eat in country kitchen has a garden aspect and includes new gas stove plus IXL combustion/wood cooker. A third living space off the kitchen could also serve as a more formal dining space if desired. The bathroom has shower and vanity and there is a separate toilet and laundry/mudroom. The property is fully fenced and there is plenty of off-street parking. There is also a single carport and a multitude of shedding including 12m x 3m shed, storage container and garden shed. Established fruit trees including heritage apple and pear, olive, cherry, apricot, peach and nectarine are easily cared for with town water plumbed the full length of the block and ready for future plantings or veggie patches.
The possibilities could be endless for this much-loved home, now ready for a new owner to enjoy with the opportunity to make the home their own.
