This beautiful country-style house dates from the early part of the 20th Century, and retains many original features including 9 foot high ceilings, patterned cornices, original fire places and a classic cottage garden with established trees, a surrounding hedge and an old well.
This much loved home has been very well cared for and was fully renovated in 2008 in consultation with an architect. The original features were maintained with sympathetic renovations, including an extension with two new bathrooms. The fixtures and fitting enhance the 19th century charm while making this a very comfortable home.
A relocation has lead to the offering for sale of 65 Rutledge St, many years and milestones have been enjoyed here and now it is your chance to secure a rare offering of an historic home in beautiful order. Few homes of this vintage are as comfortable as this home is - double glazing, in-slab heating in the bathrooms, hydronic heating panels throughout and open fireplaces as well as good insulation make this a warm, sunny and light home.
Entertaining will be enjoyable here with a choice of formal and casual living areas and a beautiful garden with a choice of terrace and pergola or a fire pit setting for the colder months. The design of the cottage garden was enhanced by a highly-regarded landscape architect resulting in a low maintenance but well established garden with pockets of colour and beauty year round.
