You can almost feel your toes tingle with excitement when you come across a rare gem from the the 19th century that retains all its original features while being beautifully updated for 21st century living. This solid hardwood, centre hall, 3 bedroom worker’s cottage with those traditional polished extra wide floor boards which appear to be Hoop Pine, has been rescued from demolition and moved to its new site on a bush block right here on Tamborine Mountain. It is now like a new home, except that it still has all its history and style there, just waiting for someone to add appropriate drapes and furnishings to show it off at its best. The 10 foot tall ceilings are solid VJ timber as are all the internal walls and delightful original fretwork fanlights allow for the free flow of fresh air throughout the house. There are original ceiling roses too, as well as 2 sets of matching French doors that are probably originals, opening out onto the north facing rumpus room / verandah.

It now stands on all steel stumps and has a full new roof and guttering plus whirley-bird ceiling extractors. There are also 2 new poly tanks that hold 48,000 litres of rainwater in the rear yard. It has been completely rewired with all new power points and light switches plus all new light fittings throughout. A reverse cycle air conditioner is in place as well as that much needed TV point in the lounge room. Of course, it has all new plumbing and a new gas hot water system, new bathroom and lovely new kitchen with all stainless steel appliances too. Those floor boards have been freshly polished and gleam with the patina of over 100 years of use, although their condition is so good that we suspect they have been covered with carpet for a very long time. Both the exterior and interior have been totally repainted in classic tones that will suit any colour of interior decor you choose.

Yes, there are still things to do on the outside! It needs a driveway, car accommodation and a garden. But the land does have a wide street verge, so you can safely park on that until you get that driveway in. The only reason this little treasure is being sold for this low price is because those things still have to be done. If they were done, you would pay a whole lot more for this amount of history, quality, comfort and style all bumped into one! Just bring your Australiana furniture and bric-a-brac along to make it really enchanting.
