3 Blackhill Road HOUGHTON
Welcome to Houghton Cottage and the picturesque village of Houghton, only 10 minutes to Tea Tree Plaza and the O-Bahn. One of the oldest homes on record, is available right now and was once the local butcher shop, dating back to the mid 1800’s.
This grand old residence has the old world charm complete with modern conveniences, with up to six bedrooms, or in its current layout, four bedrooms, formal dining and formal lounge. Enjoying separate accommodation downstairs, with an extra 2 bedrooms that comes complete with rustic beams and makes a fantastic teenage retreat, games and theatre room, this is the coolest place to be in the hottest of days.
This spectacular home has enough room for a very large family, from the white picket fence, to the rear of the stunning 1512 sqm block that overlooks village green.
Upon entry of the home the first thing you’ll notice is the sheer size of everything, from the wide hallway to the 3.3 metre high ceilings. The attention to detail is astonishing with the lovely Victorian cornices, ceiling roses, comes complete with open fire places and antique mantle pieces.
The huge light filled, open plan living area that including a cosy, low maintenance gas log fire, modern kitchen has Blanco appliances including a 900mm oven with gas cook top, dishwasher, granite bench tops and a good sized pantry.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, built in robes and large bay windows with French doors that open out onto a small private courtyard.
The fully landscaped cottage gardens are a beautiful space to sit with a good book, glass of wine and watch the kids play. The pergola runs along the width of the home and is finished perfectly with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor blinds and is fabulous entertaining area all year round. The entertaining area adjoins a lovely courtyard and leads out to the separate original “Houghton butcher shop” which has been meticulously restored and now makes excellent office or music room with huge amounts of storage above, in the attic.
A huge, high clearance carport accommodates a minimum of 4 cars, with more room behind gates for a boat or small caravan. This area, via a small set of stairs right next to the cars, goes straight under the house’s front eyelash veranda with plenty of room for storage cupboards, work benches and is a great sized workshop.
With so many extras including ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, alarm system, another rear shed, rainwater tanks and an abundance of amazing fruit trees.
You will love every minute of living in this area, but for the current vendors it’s time to go to a retirement home. For more information and open times, go to www.samdoman.raywhite.com.
