Bovell's Cottage c1882 | A historical landmark right in the heart of the CBD
A fantastic opportunity is available to purchase a historical landmark property right in the heart of the Central Business District. "Bovell" Cottage sited on Lot 2 and built C.1882, was the home of Jospeh Bovell, one of the settlers of the South West region and influential in the settlement and development of Busselton. This heritage listed limestone cottage retains a high level of exterior and internal authenticity in design, craftsmanship, and is a fine example of a single storey Victorian Georgian style cottage, with high decorative ceilings, ornate arches, 5" period timber floors and original fireplaces. Four large rooms lead off the ornate hallway as you enter, each with an original fireplace and timber floors. The upstairs attic is accessed from one of the front rooms and has been lovingly restored by the current owner with Jarrah & insulated paneling and restored roof shingles. At the rear of the house is a small kitchenette & pantry/storeroom, with adjoining access through an enclosed annexure to the original timber frame scullery with w/c, and original brick fireplace. Outside to the North of the house is the original outhouse and woodshed. An outside staircase on the North side of the house provides further access to the restored attic. Positioned in right in the heart of the CBD, only a stroll to shops, restaurants, cafes, and the new performing arts & crafts convention centre (currently under construction) and approximate 350m to the stunning blue waters of Geographe Bay, taking in the spectacular views of the Busselton Jetty, newly developed foreshore and Shelter Brewery. The City of Busselton have included the property within the Adelaide Street Precinct which encourages the development of sites, subject to approvals, with either residential or commercial developments or indeed a mixture of both. The siting of the existing structure allows ample scope for its retention (required) and the addition of either a single large building or a number of free standing structures that could provide retail and office opportunities at ground level and with residential units above at first and second floor level. If aspected to the North, these residential offerings could provide sensational views over the beautiful Busselton foreshore and the sparkling waters of Geographe Bay. As the focus of Busselton shifts toward the Bay end of Queen Street and as more demand for inner city living is promoted, this property provides an astute developer with significant options. Note: Heritage dispensation may apply (subject to council approval) Prospective buyers to make their own investigations through the City of Busselton. Information Memorandum available on request.
