Transformed Langwarrin South miner’s cottage fetches more than $1 million
A simple miner’s cottage transformed into a lifestyle home has fetched a seven-figure sum in Langwarrin South.
The almost century-old 58 Newton Ave property, with a vineyard, cellar and resort features, attracted multiple offers to sell for an undisclosed sum within the $1.05-$1.15 million price guide.
“The original cottage remains intact and was extensively renovated and extended and had good buyer interest,” Ray White Langwarrin director Nicholas Cassidy said.

The 1.13ha property, known as the ‘Old Baxter Farm’ last sold in 2007 for $660,000, sales records show.
“It would be one of the area’s original homes, dating back to the 1920s, and was a rare listing,” Mr Cassidy said.
“There were 47 groups of buyers at inspections and they were attracted to the land, location and character of the house.”
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom property sold to a Mt Eliza family looking for more space for the children.
The established vineyard produces several grape varieties while the house features a European-style timber sauna and spa looking over the garden.
There is also a bar, cellar, spacious deck, multiple living zones, in-ground pool, pool house, kitchenette, and pizza oven.
It has a picturesque location with manicured hedges plus a farm workshop and sheds.
The suburb is tightly held and described as a high demand area, with just eight properties for sale and one for rent on realestate.com.au as of June 11.
