Perfectly positioned just 60 metres from Richmond Village’s historic bridge is this wonderful opportunity to own your own business.
This amazing property offers two homes on one Title. The first is Laurel Cottage which takes it’s name from the arching Laurel Tree over hanging the front entrance. This gorgeous building (Heritage listed) still delivers all the charm of construction back in the early 1800’s. Offering guests an opportunity to go back in time and discover our colonial heritage. This character filled cottage provides a spacious open plan kitchen and dining room with garden views and a cute little doorway leading out into a secret section of the garden. Two generous sized bedrooms are separated by the living room. With a protected rear balcony, colonial furniture, fittings and fixtures you will feel as though you have gone back in time. This is the perfect beginning to discover Richmond and the surrounding Coal River Valley for your guests.
The second property is the Manager’s residence which was constructed in 1999. It is apparent the owner respected the aesthetics of the current property (Laurel Cottage) and created a phenomenal yet sympathetic home which allows them to compliment each other. The Manager’s residence was modelled on Smith O-Brien’s cottage at Port Arthur. The attention to detail here was extraordinary with bricks being custom made to replicate convict bricks and laid in the English bond method. Wooden doors and window sashes were created to complete this tribute to history. On offer here are two generous sized bedrooms with stunning views upstairs with wonderful storage abilities. Downstairs is yet another bedroom, a large entry which easily doubles as a cute ‘check in’ for guests to the cottage, character filled kitchen with windows looking out into the gardens, classic bathroom with claw foot tub and living areas to suit the most discerning owner. The dining and lounge areas both offer French doors which open out onto a private covered verandah. A double sided wood heater is the centre piece of this space, perfect for the colder months.
The gardens are a joy for the senses with a mixture of silver birches, laurel, camelias, elms, pepper trees, roses and an abundance of spring bulbs enlightening the senses for months of the year. Summer time dappled shade and deciduous wonder allowing the rays of natural sunlight in year round.
Also a carport and workshop are located at the rear of the Manager’s residence. Fantastic occupancy rates, a central location, fabulous reputation and everything ready for you to become your own boss in the superior market place which is Tasmanian Tourism.
