A remarkable opportunity presents itself to purchase a slice of Second Valley history with these two magnificent stone cottages, each on their own title. Both have been renovated and refreshed in recent times, allowing a new owner/s to walk in a enjoy the historic properties from day one. The cottages form part of the original "settlers cottages" that occupy this section of Second Valley known as Randalsea.
Lawless Cottage - c1860's - This property has been extensively updated in the last few years by the current owners, but still retains the character of days gone by. This cottage consists of a combined kitchen and dining room, master bedroom with en-suite, 2 other bedrooms, cosy sitting room, a massive cellar underneath the main bedroom, plus the main bathroom and laundry. It has been modernised with an updated kitchen including a built in stainless steel fridge, bench & oven, plus your comfort is accommodated with a split reverse cycle airconditioner and combustion wood fire.
A cottage garden on 835sqm, complete with fruit tree's and veggie patch, surrounds the house, while there are many hidden nooks to lose yourself in this peaceful location.
Blacksmiths Cottage - In the early days, the Blacksmiths Cottage was occupied by John Coad, who was a blacksmith and wheelwright. Since those days, this delightfully quaint and cosy cottage has been updated and extended over the years, yet still retains the charm and character of yesteryear. The cottage floorplan consists of a main bedroom, kitchen, dining, bathroom and a homely lounge room with combustion heater (or second bedroom), and is set on approx 1550sqm of meandering cottage gardens. The cottage is steeped in history - from the Willunga Slate on the bathroom floor, timber clad ceilings & polished timber floorboards, and old timber windows & doors. Modern conveniences have since been added, with ducted reverse cycle airconditioning, a split airconditioner, and gas hot water.
Together these cottages present a wonderful opportunity for a discerning purchaser. The Blacksmiths Cottage is currently disposed as a popular Bed & Breakfast, and enjoys high occupancy throughout the year, while the Lawless Cottage is the full-time residence of the current owners. It is the owners preference to sell the cottages together, but for the right price they may be separated.
