Thimble Cottage 101 High Street, OATLANDS TAS 7120
Cute as a button and neat as a pin! Built 1844, this authentic Managers Cottage is a slightly smaller but perfectly proportioned version of the imposing Georgian buildings that Oatlands is famous for. Originally built to a very high standard, the current owners have renovated it to just as high a standard. It sits on an easy-care block of land with cafes, shops and services within walking distance.
Beautifully restored to highlight the charm and character of its era, the cottage has gorgeous timber floors; Cedar fire surrounds, door frames and window sashes; a slow-combustion stove (plus a modern electric one for convenience); and renovations have included a new roof; new bathroom and kitchen; new wiring and plumbing; re-pointed stonework; and more.
The cottage is set over two levels with the main bedroom, a cosy sitting room, formal dining room, spacious bathroom and lovely kitchen (with views over the backyard to Callington Mill) located on the ground floor; and two more bedrooms upstairs. This property has dual zoning (Commercial and Residential) so there is the option of doing a home business. There are several Permitted and Discretionary uses for the property as set out in the Southern Midlands Planning Scheme. It was once a Bed and Breakfast.
Oatlands offers a wonderful Medical Centre, an IGA Supermarket and school as well as lots of community clubs and events. It also boasts lovely walks around Lake Dulverton (stocked with trout!), a Golf Course, Bowls Club, two Hotels and more! It is just over an hours drive to Hobart and around 45 minutes to the airport.
