Herrmann's Cottage is a classic Australian miner's cottage circa 1860 set on over half-acre of gardens. It is fully self-contained and completely private.
Herrmann Blum acquired this half-acre allotment in the Parish of Maldon by Crown Grant in 1859. He established "a three-roomed weatherboard house with iron roof, two stables and outhouses". And today, as you enter Herrmann's Cottage, you can see the original three rooms are still there
The cottage has recently been carefully redecorated throughout: retaining all the character but with the modern comforts. It features a traditional front verandah with slate paving, and inside there are the original dados and Baltic pine floors. There's a sitting room with a wood fire, three bedrooms, an updated bathroom with an original claw-foot bath and a brick paved courtyard with an outdoor table setting and BBQ.
