This 1850s weatherboard cottage is in the heart of the popular Georgian village of Evandale, just five mins from the airport and 15mins from Launceston CBD.
On an expansive 700sqm level block, the 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom cottage comes with planning approval for an architecturally-designed addition including 48sqm kitchen-living-dining room with fireplace, laundry/boot room, separate powder room and wrap-around rear veranda.
Freshly painted throughout, with new brass fixtures, fittings and lighting, the rear of the property faces due north allowing all-day sun into the house and garden - the light here is truly perfect.
With bathtub, shower and ample space, there is also room for washer and dryer, this well-insulated character cottage includes a fireplace and heat pump/aircon and has a driveway that allows parking for four cars.
The garden includes a towering willow tree, a line of fast-growing conifers along the rear fence line, a honeysuckle hedge along the west boundary, a kitchen garden, established elderflower and lilac trees, rose and camellia bushes, as well as recently-planted plum trees, weeping cherry trees, hazelnut trees, Japanese crab-apples, ferns, photinias and more.
Located in Evandale's dress circle, the house is on the same street as the much-loved Evandale market, a three-minute walk to Ingleside Bakery with its famous wall of climbing roses and just 40 metres as the crow flies to the Clarendon Arms, Evandale's gastropub.
Whether you're looking for a home, a weekender, a property to rent out/Airbnb, or your own escape to the country, this place is very special: It has all the charm and peace of village/rural life, with the city just a few clicks down the road.
