This recently refreshed cottage at 146 Bridge Street is a beautifully presented character dwelling in the Midlands township of Campbell Town.
Initially serving as an officer's quarters during the early 1830s and later as a nurse's lodging/hospital site , the original building that sat on the site was a double storey homestead with five bedrooms on the upper floor.
The current dwelling dates to around 1900 and is a generous 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom home with a renovated bungalow at the rear, fully connected to town services.
The home is constructed of galvanised iron and imitation weatherboard (cladded over convict brick), has been freshly painted inside and out and all windows are thermally broken and newly installed.
The property has two good size bedrooms with original fireplaces and a built-in timber wardrobe in the both bedrooms. A third bedroom is suited to a guest or home study.
The living room has a Saxon-enclosed wood-fire and Daikin inverted reverse cycle flowing into the kitchen which is timber-finished featuring Huon pine cabinetry and updated kitchen appliances.
The bathroom has a shower and bath with a separate toilet and a porch washroom with ample storage.
The bungalow is newly renovated with 2 bedrooms, a kitchenette and a separate bathroom and toilet. It offers the perfect opportunity for a home office, teenagers retreat or short-stay accommodation, subject to council approval. There is also a detached lock-up tool shed and an open double carport with off-street parking for 2 cars from Bridge Street.
The dwelling is set on a large allotment of 0.172 ha (0.42 acre) with several established native, ornamental and fruit trees and/or plenty of room for future development (dwelling and/or subdivision). It has rear yard access to the property via a gate and shares the boundary with the King Street parklands owned by the Northern Midlands Council. All future development plans are subject to council approval with Northern Midlands Council.
Campbell Town is commonly known as the 'Heart of Tasmania' and is the hub of the central midlands area. It features a number of artisan and antique stores in addition to conveniences such as the district school, medical and aged care facilities, Service Tasmania, Commonwealth Bank, IGA Supermarket and rural merchandise outlets.
In a short period of time, Campbell Town and the central midlands area have quickly become an affordable option for families, 'first-home' buyers or the 'tree changer' seeking a more relaxed lifestyle. Campbell Town is a leisurely 40-minute drive south of Launceston and 1hr 20 north of Hobart.
Ideally positioned within a short stroll of the 'High Street' services of Campbell Town, Campbell Town District School and Elizabeth River, 146 Bridge Street is an iconic property of the township and would make a wonderful property for a broad range of buyers.
