Real Estate was all about position in the 1870's and 140 years later it still is!
Overlooking historic oak trees and grounds of "Oakbank House" Charles and Elizabeth Smith built a quaint 4 main roomed cottage for their daughter Elizabeth in the 1870's. The street was then known as Smith Street but is now known as Oakwood Road Oakbank. Elizabeth then married Thomas Thomas, and the cottage became the family home of various generations of the Thomas family.
Now after around 140 years the Thomas family has reluctantly decided to sell the Cottage, the first time it will have transferred outside the family in that time. They have decided it is time for a new family to renovate the home and love it, like their family.
The prime position is the first thing that will appeal to many buyers. Just metres from the main street and shops and overlooking the rustic grounds of Oakbank House the cottage has fantastic potential as it retains a freestone front and many of the original features and has not been spoilt by later renovations and extensions.
The home currently is deposed as 2 double sized bedrooms, lounge and eat in kitchen with both the old Metters wood stove and a newer electric oven. The sleep out, bathroom, toilet and old laundry complete the home. There are a number of outbuildings for garaging or storage.
The generous wide fronted block of 962 sqm allows adequate room for storage/garaging and can be redeveloped as a garden and returned to the splendour of years past.
The highly sort after area of Oakbank offers a lovely community spirit with the joys of country living, Shops, Post Office choice of Schools, excellent sporting facilities, yet is only 20 minutes by freeway from the city and tollgate.
Inspection of this lower priced cottage is highly recommended through the Sole agents Richard and Mignon Williams of L J Hooker Mount Barker on 0418 845 073
