Character-filled Potential 126 High Street, OATLANDS TAS 7120
This iconic, Convict Brick cottage is located at the Northern end of this stunning heritage village half way between Hobart and Launceston. Built in 1850, the house now sits on approx. 1263m2 of land and still has the original Sandstone Stables behind it. A well-fenced paddock at the back of the property is north facing and ideal for fruit trees, veggie gardens or a few sheep.
The cottage offers 3 double bedrooms, all with fireplaces; a cosy sitting room, also with a fireplace; 2 attic rooms; with the kitchen / dining area, bathroom, toilet, laundry and small sunroom in the back extension. It has some of the original wallpaper and linoleum as well as high, Baltic Pine ceilings and Lathe and Plaster walls.
A huge wood heater in the kitchen / dining room stands where the slow combustion stove was and pumps out wonderful warmth. Some rewiring has been done and a new meter box installed. The roof has been painted and the guttering replaced. While there is quite a bit of restoration to be done, the character and charm of the building is very evident.
Oatlands is a beautiful village with a strong community and has an IGA Supermarket, Medical Centre, District School (Kinder to Year 12), great cafes, etc.; it also has a Golf Course, Bowling Club, Swimming Pool, and many clubs. Hobart is around an hours drive, with major shopping centres closer, and Launceston around an hour, 20 minutes drive.
