Built in the 1870's for the Sawmill Foreman, Sawmill Cottage reflects the old world charm of that era. A newer extension captures the existing quaintness to enhance the building's character. Homes of this vintage and quality are rare in a time when new builds strive to replicate the same heart and feel of yesteryear.
Sawmill Cottage enchants visitors with its large, light-filled rooms, high ceilings, and original detailing. At the heart of the home, a grand open plan kitchen presents with high quality appliances, authentic pressed tin wall panels, and tactile hardwood timber bench tops. It's the kind of room where family and friends come together to share food and friendship; a place to create a lifetime of memories. A featured Rayburn wood burning stove warms the kitchen whilst a wholesome soup is cooking or a batch cookies.
There's a sense of leaving the outside world behind when you step through the front gate into a private, sunny, brick patio area. A sense of peace and serenity compliments the vibrant culture of cafes, restaurants, and shops that make the town of Berry such a popular destination. A large private yard offers space to spread out and realise your garden dreams.
Sawmill Cottage has been impeccably maintained with no renovation work required. This is a residence built for longevity. Solid hardwood forms the structure of the early build with original saw cuts still visible in the beams while original floorboards highlight a home that has stood the test of time.
The history of Sawmill Cottage means you will own a property that holds a special place in Berry's history. For decades it was the school canteen and a lolly shop. It holds the laughter of the many children who once visited Mrs Savill's store to enjoy an ice cream or buy some milk and bread. Older residents recall walking across a log to reach the cottage from school.
This single story character-filled home is an easy 5 minute stroll from the centre of town. Berry hosts an enviable array of regular events including a produce market, the renowned Berry Market, The Muir House Art Gallery, and a variety of annual festivals and events.
Generations to come will treasure this charming cottage - I invite you to inspect this delightful family abode in the heart of Berry.
