Barry Plant Sunbury’s Tina Coleman said the property’s character and history was a major drawcard.
“I believe it was a post office in the 1930s and also a tea room and restaurant over the years,” she said.
The home’s location had also caught the eye of couples wanting the country lifestyle and a business opportunity.
“While enjoying the rural life, they could start up a small business from home,” Ms Coleman said.
The cottage showcases original period details.
The property was in a perfect position for a bed and breakfast or a retreat, as it had access to two main roads and was a quick drive to Sunbury, Romsey and Riddells Creek.
The home is also near shops, a school, buses and two train stations.
A warm and cosy sitting area.
The property has changed hands a number of times until the current owners snapped it up more than 20 years ago.
Featuring minor updates, the house retains the character of a bygone era with its high ceilings, picture rails, hardwood floors, fireplaces and dado walls.
The decked pergola flows out to the lush cottage garden.
There is a country kitchen, comfortable living areas, a separate outdoor retreat or bedroom, and a decked pergola leading to a delightful garden.
A fully fenced paddock has room for a pony, while the backyard has space for a chicken coop and vegetable garden.
