From little things big things grow!

This adorable historic cottage is set on 1007m2, in a commercial fringe location with main thoroughfare frontage for high exposure and lots of available parking.

Understood to have been built in 1856, the cottage began its life as a shop for local boot-maker William Bott, thereby gaining the name ‘Cobblers Cottage’, and later also became home for his daughter and son in law. Since the early 20th century this endearing property has been utilised as both a home and business for several proprietors and residents.

It’s easy to see why this has been the case. Boasting street presence, location and layout, the building is perfect for the small business. 2 large character rooms at the front of the premises are ideal for office/ consulting/ reception/ client usage. 2 further versatile rooms are ideal for excellent storage and staff areas. There is also a well-equipped dining kitchen and a functional bathroom. As history has dictated, not just businesses benefit from this space and layout, and the cottage makes for more than comfortable character accommodation for the single or couple in an exceptionally convenient location.

With approximately ¼ acre to play with there is plenty of space behind the property for further development (STCC). With previous council approval for a dwelling to be built at the rear, this unique opportunity has genuine potential for an enviable live and work from home lifestyle.
