Renovated farmhouse ticks every box
THE owners of No. 218 Wiggins Road in Wattle Hill have pulled off an amazing transformation of this home.
The house is set on more than 16ha of mostly pasture.
It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living, a mud room, decks, barns and a gigantic shed and workshop.
While the house is 142 sqm, the property’s outbuildings measure about 258 sqm.
Kate Storey property representative Donna Wooley met the owners of this property a couple of weeks ago.
“At that point they still had a few little jobs to finish and they were so responsive to my advice regarding where their time and money would be best spent,” she said. “They have been fantastic to work with in the preparation of their beautiful home for sale.”
“They have been respectful of the property’s heritage and have embraced that beautiful country farmhouse style,” she said.
“They have retained original features where possible and have used timber from the property to create a stunning feature in the living and dining room.”
Scattered throughout the property are features that hint at its heritage.
There is an extensive network of stonewalls, original brick fireplaces. handmade doors and stunning timber floors.
Donna said the property catered well to many buyer demographics.
She said it could appeal to a young couple looking for space; with it enormous shed it might grab a tradie’s eye; or for anyone looking for a home with nothing left to do but move in, this is the one.
“And it is only 10 minutes to Sorell. Talk about country living with town convenience,” Donna said.
“I have private inspections booked and have received an international inquiry from the UK.”
As the owner of last week’s title for the home that grabbed the most views on realestate.com.au, Donna has a theory or two about how to make a home sing online.
She said presentation was key when marketing a property for sale.
“It can make all the difference to the response generated online,” she said.
“A great “hero” photo has done its job here and really hooked people in.
“Getting the photos right was instrumental in the fantastic response we have had so far.
“My phone was ringing within 20 minutes of it being online.
“And the fantastic script written by my husband did a great job of capturing the feeling of the house and lifestyle that is on offer.”
The property is priced at “Offers over $635,000”. An open home will be held on Saturday May 18 from noon to 12.45pm.
