HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY

Here’s your chance to invest in a piece of history with this unique Georgian property – the only remaining home from Geelong’s first exclusive subdivision.

Built in 1854 “Cream and Pride” is named after the subdivision and retains many of its original features, including windows, iron lace and slate roofing, all brought across from England.

As promoted at the time in the Geelong Advertiser, it was the picture-perfect place to live with sweeping views from atop the hill in Newtown, and it still stands as one of Geelong’s most sought-after areas and on the doorstep of the popular Pakington St dining strip.

It’s a perfect option for downsizers, a corporate couple or investors with extra appeal as a short-stay option.

While built in the Georgian style, the three-bedroom home also shares Victorian styling including cornices, ceiling roses and four-panel doors.

The original front four rooms, with polished Baltic pine floors, are now used as two of the bedrooms and an open-plan living and formal dining area.

Extended in the same style, the back of the home includes a kitchen, sitting room, bathroom with shower and separate bath, and the third bedroom which was the original stables for the house, which would make an ideal study.

The kitchen includes timber cabinetry, a breakfast bar, wood oven, a standalone oven/cooktop and Miele dishwasher.

The sitting room opens out to a paved area and low-maintenance garden, ideal for entertaining.

Other features include a separate laundry, split-system unit, secure off-street parking, two street frontages, original fireplace and leadlight windows.

The home is an easy walk to The Geelong College, Sacred Heart College, St Joseph’s College and top primary schools, close to shopping and dining on Pako and Shannon Ave and a convenient drive to the CBD, waterfront, Geelong train station and the Ring Road.
