About this listing
Located on the corner of the Tablelands and Benambra Corryong Roads by sealed carriageway is this charming, and inviting old style cottage known as "Watergate" is ready for you to sit back and enjoy the surrounds. With a recent coat of paint, fresh carpet in the bedrooms, and new flooring in the kitchen, living lounge area, this small acreage lifestyle property is ready to go, and is genuinely on the market for the discerning buyer.

With remarkable history, and if walls could talk, this cottage could tell some good stories of an era long gone. Originally it was the Uplands Primary School #2720, until it became the Uplands Post Office and Telephone Exchange in the 1930's (3901). Now in its present day, it is presented as a comfortable home in a unique area, be it for permanent occupancy, or that elusive weekend retreat.

The home has open plan Kitchen, lounge and dining, with two inside bedrooms and bathroom. There are verandas on four sides, with access to a third bedroom bungalow, which was once the old post office exchange. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and cook top, and still has the original wood fired oven in place. In the lounge is an open fire place for the winter months.

Outside in the grounds are some well-established deciduous trees offering shade in the summer months and sunlight warmth in the winter. Existing shedding is on the property for under cover storage, and there is a very neat outside entertaining area, even with an outside bath for the keen. The home is on mains electricity and has a fixed telephone line available for connection. Rain water is harvested and stored in 40,000 litres of tanks. There are two paddocks and two dams all on approximately three acres, or one point two Ha.

Furthermore, the home is only ten minutes approx... from Taylors Crossing on the Mitta Mitta River, and is surrounded by mountainous areas that one can explore in any adventure type recreation, be it bush walking, four wheel driving, motor bike or mountain bike riding, or the trusty old horse riding the high plains, hunting or fishing this area has it all to offer.

Inspections are strictly by appointment for qualified buyers only.
