The house comprises of a recently redone kitchen equipped with dishwasher, attached is a sunny separate laundry and sun room and two generous sized bedrooms. This quaint cottage would make a great first home maintaining value over time and adding character and a sense of history to its neighbourhood. While virtually every home benefits from hanging onto at least one important feature of its past in this case there are two! The fireplace mantels one local Oamaru stone in the separate lounge and the other carved rimu mantel in the dining room. Recent upgrades include interior painting, oven, dishwasher electrical and carpets. Wood stove on wetback and gas hot water. Outside sheds include 2 bay implement shed, woodshed double garage all this on 1 point of water on the Awamoko water scheme.
Georgetown is a farming locality 30km north-west of Oamaru and once was a small railroad town of 118 people. Located approximately 15 minutes to two great elementary schools Papakaio and Duntroon and on the school bus route. There is a whole lot of adventure to be found in the area from the cemetery across the road the final resting place of "Jimmy the Needle" to the secret ponding area for swimming and fishing, unearth some fossils found in the area, gold pan in the Dansy's pass, or head to Duntroon and explore the elephant rocks and Maori rock drawings. So if you are looking to get out of town and a rural lifestyle is what you are seeking then come check out this great starter home.
Additional half acre is available subject to survey.
