In the early to mid 1800s, this charming cottage was home to the local Parish Gardener. Situated in the heart of historic Richmond, this Heritage Listed 2 bedroom cottage is thought to be Richmond’s oldest building. Highlights are the original tin roof, imported from England in 1823, the original timber slabs used in the walls and floors and the magnificent 100 year old rose in the garden.
Behind the striking red door, you’ll find the main and single bedrooms, lounge and dining rooms with those original timber floors lovingly restored, and with a servery window to the dining area, which also features the magnificent original fireplace.
Walk further and find a tiled living room with study nook and well-appointed galley style kitchen, before the combined bathroom and laundry. Our courtyard garden out the back completes the cottage, perfect for those late-afternoon drinks and nibbles. With a timber fence and gateway to the driveway and carport we share only with our neighbours, it is lovely and private.
A five minute stroll back up the main street will take you to all the cafes, restaurants, homewares shops, providores and amenities of the village of Richmond, while a wander down the tree-lined road will find you at Pugh’s Lagoon and reserve, a perfect place for a picnic or a run with your dog.
