Built in 1885 as one of four workers’ cottages, this paisley cottage has been with the same owners for 25 years. Back in the day, the cottage was situated on the edge of town, with no houses across the road. Things have changed over time, and the town has also grown. Take a step inside this cottage, and you’ll get the rare experience of living the old-fashioned way—a glimpse of a long-gone era, a beautiful mix of the old and new. The owners have maintained this cottage to retain as many original features as possible, giving it authenticity. Sit out in the sunny courtyard and enjoy your morning tea while taking in the breathtaking views of the mountains, and say hello to resident cat Snowy. Pubs, cafes, and restaurants are, on average, within a 10-minute walk from the beautiful property.
