HISTORIC WILLUNGA COTTAGE – CREEK SIDE
4 ST JAMES STREET, WILLUNGA
Character and charm on a babbling brook, this historic late 1800’s cottage is located in the original settlement precinct of Willunga and built by Mr William Shaw. This area of establishment was once governed by the natural undulating topography and flow of Wirra Creek that bounds this delightful setting.
Just metres through a short trail over the creek bridge to the main street of Willunga township and all this village has to offer lies the town’s quaint cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops, and famous Willunga market. This central Willunga position belies the secluded secret garden location and natural bushland setting so close to all these handy township facilities.
Approximately 2000sqm in land size, the property comprises the historic cottage of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, recently and tastefully renovated to enjoy modern living yet still retain its rustic charm with qualities such as timber ceilings and beams and feature brick surrounding the alluring combustion fire in the living room for chilly winter Willunga nights.
A separate studio with separate entry has multiple options of use as a guest or 4th bedroom, a hobby precinct, art studio, or teenage retreat – the list is endless with this bonus addition.
Willunga slate continues the charm throughout the patio, adorned with established greenery and shrubs and flows from the decked original veranda for a multi-purpose private entertainment area for you, family and friends.
Multiple access points from the side lane and front entrance allows valuable entry points onto the property and the large double shed can house a variety of vehicles with secure storage.
Solar panels, numerous rain water tanks, thick walls and natural shade ensure sustainability and cost-saving features run with the property for your convenience.
The bird life and natural flora are a constant companion and quite at home – as you will be, in this gorgeous historic cottage, ripe for a new beginning with another loving custodian as this owner has been for more than 25 years.INSPECTION BY APPOINTMENT
