About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in March 2019.

Circa 1910; this character 'miners' cottage is a classic example of yesteryear. Of a time when the Fingal Valley was a hive of activity from mining; timber and agricultural industries; this home would have serviced as a resident for a labourer/workman at the nearby Stanhope; Merrywood and/or Storeys Creek mine sites. Now utilized as a 'holiday home' by the current owners; 4 St Pauls Place is offered as a 'walk-in/walk-out' package and features a number of original finishes throughout. Consisting of the following:
- Two spacious bedrooms. Featuring 'queen' size mattresses in both rooms.
- Separate living and dining areas.
- Enclosed Saxon wood fireplace.
- Walk-though kitchen.
- Separate washroom with laundry/bathroom and toilet.
- Single lock-up garage.
- Ample amount of off-street parking.
- Peaceful aspect towards Avoca township and St Pauls River.
Set on a fully fenced 0.2132ha (0.5268acre) block with river frontage from the St Pauls River. The property has been fenced into separate paddocks; ideal for grazing a pet sheep along the riverbank or developing a market garden. This property is connected to town water and a septic sewerage system.
Avoca is a small village and is situated on the banks of the South Esk River near the confluence of the St Pauls River. Avoca is a leisurely 50-minutes' drive from Launceston CBD and Launceston Airport and only 25 minutes' drive east from Campbell Town. This property is within walking distance of the Avoca Primary School; Post Office; Roadhouse/supermarket. The community of Avoca is a very close-knit group of residents who are supportive of each other and very welcoming to all new residents. Avoca and the Fingal Valley is full of 'characters' who resided and call 'the valley' home.
This cottage oozes charm and character of days gone by; but could quite easily be turned into a very comfortable permanent or holiday home for anyone seeking the relaxed lifestyle of the Fingal Valley.
