We love to feel a part of history, admire period styles and appreciate enduring features that imbue the quality of workmanship that defines the past.
Steeped in history, radiating a reserved Georgian style charm, this double brick and rendered cottage has been immaculately preserved to honour its place in the rich history of the Kiama Township. Renowned as the original Lighthouse Keepers Cottage on Blowhole Point, this early 1890's home was anecdotally relocated to Seaview Street, understood to be the first subdivision in the Kiama Township.
Lovingly renovated and extended to provide modern comfort, yet faithfully retain the character of the home, the design is complimented by period details like 10ft ceilings, ornate fireplaces, leadlight windows, ornamental cornices and ceiling roses, original mantelpiece's, gorgeous wooden floorboards and windows and architraves made from cedar and local hardwood.
The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room is bathed in sunlight from the rear-North aspect of the home, which leads out to a stunning covered alfresco area, complete with outdoor kitchen and picturesque ocean views.
In the charming backyard, a majestic Native Plum Pine tree offers dappled shade while your eyes absorb the sheer beauty of this splendid rambling garden. Take the time to admire the 50-year-old Birds Nest Fern, Staghorn and Elkhorn ferns, combined with productive citrus trees, veggies, herbs and a wonderful passionfruit vine.
Located a short stroll from the main Surf beach and both main streets, you can walk to the local schools, railway station, local famers markets or simply enjoy the wonderful boutique shopping and quality cafés along the way.
From beginning to end, you cannot help but fall in love with this enchanting historical home.
