Enviably set in Newtown’s coveted school zone, every inch of this circa-1850s cottage exudes irresistible charm! Period details masterfully unite with contemporary updates, while the north-facing backyard creates your very own outdoor oasis!

Newtown Primary School is a short stroll away, along with Newtown’s prestigious colleges. Both Newfolk café and Bottles & Barrels café are footsteps away for morning coffee, while Woolworths provides you with all of your shopping needs. With Pakington Street within easy reach, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of eateries, boutiques, and big brand stores. Easy access to the Geelong Train Station and Geelong CBD adds the final touches to this superb location.

While the home has a rich history, buyers will appreciate that there is no heritage overlay – meaning they can update or renovate however they please (STCA). With The Lairds Way providing street access to the rear of the block, this expansive land size also offers potential for subdivision (STCA).

The formal lounge/dining area is graced with an open fireplace, creating an enticing setting during the winter months. With French doors opening onto both the courtyard and rear porch, the family room creates a stunning indoor-outdoor connection. The Hamptons-style kitchen opens onto the spacious courtyard via French doors, where you’ll love soaking up the sun’s rays as you entertain loved ones. The kitchen will delight with stone benchtops, a butler sink, and an island bench/breakfast bar. The built-in pantry provides ample storage, while appliances include a Bosch dishwasher and La Germania stainless steel 900mm oven/gas cooktop.

Three bedrooms (one with built-in robes and backyard access) occupy the lower level. The upstairs bedroom offers versatility as a kids play space, teen retreat, or even an artist’s studio. Both bathrooms exude on-trend style, with the main bathroom boasting a clawfoot tub, frameless shower, and single vanity with marble benchtop. The European laundry and separate toilet complete the layout, while three gas wall heaters and three electric wall heaters provide comfort. Home to gorgeous gardens, the landscaped backyard creates a spacious wonderland for children and adults alike. Non-invasive bamboo lines the fence to create privacy, while the established apple tree is simply enchanting. Accessed via The Lairds Way, the remote single lock-up garage with mezzanine level provides secure parking. Dedicated off-street parking is also provided for an additional two vehicles.
