Bluestone cottage charm, exceptional lifestyle.

Designed by Joseph Watts and completed in 1879, 50 Lower Paper Mills Road is the second of 6 Historic Paper Mill Workers Cottages - the earliest known examples of purpose built company housing in Victoria that pre-date World War 1.

The captivating surrounds of the cottage gardens and the distant sounds of Buckley Falls provide a rural escape whilst being only moments from the infrastructure and amenities within Geelong - quality education, café districts in Newtown and the CBD, the local walking tracks around the Barwon River and Buckley Falls accompanied by the added convenience of the ring road providing just an hours trip to Melbourne.

The cottage has been sympathetically renovated to retain the charm and character whilst the modernisations have best equipped the home for a young family or those looking to nestle into a relaxing lifestyle. The front section of the home, the original cottage, has been adapted to accommodate 3 bedrooms, a fully updated bathroom and laundry, centred around an inviting living space and fireplace.

Double the size of the original dwelling, the rear extension combines the style and character together to create an exceptional living, kitchen and dining space. Atop the expansive living is a showstopping, 15-foot ceiling apex, complete with remote windows to really set the atmosphere for entertaining the family or enjoying downtime.

Stepping through the French doors to the rear, the yard is your own private oasis. The established gardens provide a tranquil environment full of birdlife and an ideal backdrop for gatherings and luncheons.

The home is serviced by reverse cycle heating and cooling for comfort year round and the rear of the property offers an enormous 4 car garage and rear lane access.

Seeing truly is believing, don't miss out on your opportunity to acquire your own slice of Geelong History and along with it a lifestyle that few homes can offer. A day here, is like a weekend away. Organize your own inspection today!
