This unique property at 50 Hunter Street Castlemaine demands more than a cursory glance. It offers not only a fully renovated, historic cottage but a significant land parcel, with permits to build, that enjoys landscaped views across the adjacent, prized Buda house and garden.
The fully renovated, picturesque vintage cottage dates back to the 1860′s. During recent renovations old papers were found in the original cottage section of the home and original horizontal timber board that clad the inside of the cottage remain under the pasteboard walls.
But then there is more! There is the rather quirky repurposing, done by a previous owners, one of whom worked for the PMG (Post Master General). He added real interest to the property by re-purposing a number of the old red telephone boxes (the same as the television series of Doctor WHO), slate telephone box floor panels and telephone pole isulator beams, which can be identified in the shedding, side and back veranda areas.
