A pre-1900s home in one of the earliest areas of Bathurst to be established has just hit the market.
Not only is the home at 13 Hamilton Street an opportunity to purchase a piece of history, but you can move in without needing to renovate.
Over the last 10 years, the current owners have gone to the effort of making minor updates to the original cottage and added an extension to the rear of the dwelling.
RECENT PROPERTY FEATURES:
The extension is in keeping with the era of the home and some features were made using parts of other buildings.
The windows in the back came from a house being demolished on Bentinck Street, while the bricks of the courtyard walls and the garden paths are old Bathurst red brick reclaimed from old buildings.
At the front of the home is where you will find the original features, including fireplaces and the floorboards.
Two bedrooms flank the entrance hallway, with the master bedroom offering built-in-robes that were added in the last two years.
A third bedroom comes off the formal sitting room and has views over the courtyard.
The extension to the cottage includes an open-plan kitchen, living and dining space, as well as the bathroom.
Arguably the standout feature of the extension is the kitchen, which is modern but styled to reflect the age of the property.
The kitchen has white cabinets and timber benchtops, as well as stainless steel Smeg appliances.
One Agency Bestwick agent Jim Connors said one of is favourite features can be found above the kitchen.
"One of my favourite features is the bespoke lead-light windows which were designed by the artist who put the extension on," he said.
The kitchen overlooks the casual living and dining area.
As this space faces north east, sunlight streams in through the large windows spread across the space.
The bathroom is tucked away and offers a separate toilet and shower over bath.
The bathroom also features lead-light windows and a skylight.
A second toilet can be found in the home's internal laundry.
Another good feature of this home is the amount of storage available, with floor-to-ceiling cupboards available in both the open-plan area and the laundry.
Outside, there is a paved courtyard and established gardens that stretch to the back of the property.
This property also has a single-car garage at the end of a shared driveway.
In addition to these features, 13 Hamilton Street has high ceilings, ceiling fans and a reverse cycle airconditioner in the open-plan area.
Mr Connors said this home could suit a wide variety of buyers, but felt its features would most appeal to younger people.
"A young family or a couple would be our pick for this one, being close to town and having period features. People will appreciate that," he said.
This first open home for this property will be held on Saturday between 12pm and 12.30pm.
