Historic rural retreat with exciting renovation potential!
Paterson is a picturesque riverside township with fascinating heritage and grand colonial buildings. You can soak up the ambience as you relax in its old country pubs and explore the historic walks of this charming town, once a busy inland port in colonial times.
With two busy pubs, an IGA, post office, butchers, doctors surgery, chemist, bottle shop, hairdressers, cafe,newsagents, petrol station and 9-hole golf course, you have everything you need right here.
30 William Street dates back to circa 1908 and originated as a farmhand’s cottage. I am delighted to present to the market this unique and historic rural retreat, for the first time in 28 years.
The weatherboard property sits high up on William Street bearing its original federation colour scheme of maroon and dark green, with captivating views over the countryside from its charming timber wood verandah. The southerly breeze in the late afternoon makes this a particularly enticing spot.
The original sash windows and timber front door with its quirky door knocker provide the home with delightful street appeal. There is side access on both sides of this impressive 977sqm size block and a detached garage with double doors sits just out of sight.
Inside the heart of the cottage there is an open fireplace with Oregon timber wood mantelpiece and soaring 9-ft ceilings which add an abundance of character to this heritage home, as do the two bedrooms – both with original sash windows.
The original kitchen and bathroom are situated at the rear of the home and ooze character and old-world charm. The back door leads out to a spacious timber wood deck with decorative glass louvre windows and overlooks the secluded and impressive north facing backyard. Its manicured lawns, established trees and garden beds are particularly enchanting and will make an ideal place to let your dogs run and the chickens roam freely.
30 William Street has huge amounts of potential and will make the most rewarding renovation project. With some loving restoration, the cottage will make a wonderful first home, down-sizer or even weekender and its proximity to some of Paterson’s favourite tourist attractions would make it an ideal AirBnB.
Properties like this one don’t stay on the market for long, so if you’d like to secure yourself a little piece of history in one of the Hunter’s most desirable towns, call me to arrange your inspection.
