Herrmann's Cottage c1860s
Cute as a button, Herrmann's Cottage is a double-fronted three-bedroom classic Australian Miner's Cottage, offering an escape to the country as an ideal investment opportunity, home base or weekend getaway. Private and on a generous 2139 sqm (approx) of gardens, the dual driveway entry allows for subdivision potential (STCA). Shop, eat and drink, stay, and explore the historic township of Maldon and the town's selection of beautiful retail shops, cafes, and activities such as the Victorian Goldfields Railway, Mount Tarrengower, Cairn Curran Reservoir, Porcupine Village, and the Goldfields walking tracks.

Brick pathways meander around the established garden and lead to the front verandah with its slate paving, a perfect spot to sit and reflect. Herrmann Blum purchased the allotment in 1859 and built "a three-roomed weatherboard house with iron roof, two stables and outhouses". As you enter the cottage, the original three rooms are still present, aplenty with period details creating a charming quintessential step back in time feel. The north-facing living features a solid wood heater inset into the period fireplace and timber surround. The main bedroom is off the living, and completing the original three-room cottage is a central kitchen with dining, providing a timber benchtop and pretty outlooks over the garden. The rear of the cottage has a raked ceiling and tiled flooring, two bedrooms, a bathroom with a period clawfoot bath with shower and ornate shower screen, a pedestal basin, laundry facilities and a mudroom with a separate toilet and exterior access to a quiet and private terraced area, perfect for entertaining. All windows in the cottage have pretty outlooks of the garden. Period details include timber-clad ceilings, timber dados, baltic pine floors and windows. Updates include two split systems for heating and cooling.

The generous and private grounds provide a carport, three water tanks, a woodshed, and a fenced veggie garden, and the old outhouse is now for chickens. The native and ornamental garden has quiet sitting areas, mature gum trees, and established fruit trees. A place of peace and tranquillity, Herrmann's Cottage is a step back in time with the comfort of modern amenities, set within a private garden all within a short walk of historic Maldon, making for the ideal country escape.
