Large Character home in historic Penola – The Gateway to The Coonawarra Wine Region

This character cottage has been smartly extended and transformed into a large country residence incorporating 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and multiple living & dining spaces.

Situated on a spacious 1,003m2 corner allotment fronting the wide Oak tree lined Portland Street, the location could not be better. Here you have the benefit of a quiet residential location, all be it only minutes’ walk to schools, sporting and recreational fields and the boutique shops and cafes the township of Penola has to offer.

This home would be perfect as a family home, holiday accommodation or a combination of both; The sale includes sketch design plans from sought after South East architect David Pike; His vision incorporates an improved main residence featuring master suite with ensuite and walk in robe as well as a revived kitchen and living room extension. The secondary driveway access off Robe Street provides another interesting opportunity; With clever renovations, you could maintain a main residence at the front, and a secondary residence at the rear – providing a single or dual income residence. The opportunities are endless with this very spacious and flexible floor plan.

The home can be broken down into 3 areas;

  • The original cottage with attractive gable roof, stone pillars and raked full width veranda. Inside, a wide central hallway with 4 large bedrooms; 3 are carpeted with the main having polished timber floors and an adjoining ensuite. From the hallway, step up into;
  • The middle section of the house – bridging together the original cottage and the rear stone section of the home. This is the informal entry from the parking spaces – the part of the house you linger in and interact with the rest of the family. Here, an elongated kitchen with gas cooktop and dishwasher, dining space with built in seating and slow combustion fireplace.
  • Double doors connect to the final section – a solid stone structure comprising of 2 spaces perfect for living / formal dining / rumpus (including second slow combustion fireplace), office, additional bedroom, bathroom, separate toilet, laundry, and storage.
