About this listing
This home could tell a story or two ... starting back in 1837 when the land was first purchased by the MacCracken family and a cottage built in the 1860's. The home has seen only a few owners in its long history, all adding to its character and charm. The Brown family purchased the property in 1882 extending the cottage which converted it into three separate apartments in the early 1900's. During this time, the front room on the north side was often rented out to travellers and we are sure many stories were told as they gathered in the evenings. The house was then passed down throughout the Brown family for over 100 years when it was finally sold.

While the home has a deep history it is the current owners that have restored it's beauty and charm having completed a full renovation bringing this historic home back to life. Modernising the home but still keeping its original structure and features.

The property is currently set up as the 'Ivy Cottage Bed & Breakfast' with half of the house set up for guests with 3 immaculate bedrooms all with their own ensuite, a communal dining room and shared lounge area. The other half of the house is currently set up for the owners as their home. The property features a modern stylish kitchen. There is plenty of space in the home, with an additional two bedrooms as well as two loft areas for additional storage requirements. This home really is a sight to be seen and a business opportunity you don't want to miss out on however its floor plan is versatile allowing it to also be used as a beautiful large home and ideal for extended families.

Set on a spacious double block with large backyard and lots of fruit trees the backyard makes for the perfect spot to sit relax and enjoy your stay. There is an abundance of sheds as well as an additional parking area, and still potential for more development with plenty of room at the rear of the property to build units (STCA).

George Town has a lot to offer with 3 schools, modern hospital, 2 supermarkets as well as hardware supplies and other shopping conveniences. There are also a number of sporting facilities, swimming centre and social clubs. Located only 5 minutes from beautiful beaches and vineyards/wineries a short drive away and only a 35 minute drive to Launceston.
