This 3 bedroom cottage offers style and character. It has been verified as the original Station Master's Cottage (Circa 1913) from the old Anderson railway station, which was located at what is now the Phillip Island roundabout. The house was relocated to its current position in 1981, following the closure of the rail line from Nyora to Wonthaggi.
Behind the picket fence lies a charming cottage steeped in history and offering stylish accommodation, while retaining much of its century old woodwork.
Fantastic position, within easy walking distance to Beach No.1, Venus Bay village and playground.
Unlike most rental properties in Venus Bay, we provide a full linen service including bathroom towels as well as tea-towels. All beds are freshly made up for your arrival, complete with doonas and cushions and electric blankets to the queens. Please bring your own beach towels.
The cottage has an open plan living area, which features original dado panelling, complemented by leather couches and decor. This adjoins the spacious light-filled kitchen/dining area. With 3 large bedrooms the first two comprise queen beds, the third has 2 single beds.
Features include fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, LCD TV, DVD, CD/iPod player, split system, electric blankets on queen beds and separate laundry with washing machine, bathroom and separate toilet. Clothesline located at north side of cottage.
Well behaved pets are welcome. The property is set on a large flat block giving pets plenty of room to run around and explore. It is fully fenced and pets are allowed inside (not on the furniture or in the bedrooms).
Head outside to an undercover deck complete with BBQ and outdoor setting. The cottage is set on a fully fenced block (650sq mtrs), which makes it perfect for families and a dog's paradise. Whether you want to spend the day on the beach or have a quiet relax on the decks, this one's for you.
