Circa 1840, Convict brick, 3 bedroom colonial cottage, positioned on 2023m2 (1/2 acre) straight across from the beautiful Huon River along the Main Street of the quaint historic township of Franklin. This property enjoys views out over the water and is an easy, level walk, to the centre of Franklin and the foreshore reserve. In Franklin you will find cafes, restaurants, antiques, a quaint general store & PO, the Ye Old Franklin pub, the Lady Franklin hotel and a grassy waterfront park reserve along the riverbank. A strong community spirit is evident here and a real sense of preservation of Franklin's unique History makes this little town very appealing. Franklin is also home to the famous wooden boat centre. The house offers 3 bedrooms with the potential to re-create a loft room up in the roof space. The kitchen, dining and lounge are open plan. Two of the bedrooms have open fireplaces and the 2 front bedrooms also have a lovely view out to the river. There is an amazing array of different mature fruit trees, berries and vegetables out the back, your very own market garden. A shed provides good workshop space and a walk-in cool room is attached, perfect to store the excess fruits, berries and vegetables produced in the garden. Charming in every way and an iconic building, the cottage also comes with its own collection of original deeds starting from 1859 to present day. The owner is also prepared to negotiate his private jetty license if that should be of interest. Huonville is under 10 minutes away, where you will find all your major services and the Hobart CBD is a picturesque 45 minutes drive.
