6 Cross Street Geelong West
CONVENIENCE, CHARACTER AND HERITAGE CHARM
Heritage charm meets Pakington St convenience in this double-fronted Victorian home on the doorstep of Geelong’s most popular shopping and dining strip.
It’s a three-minute walk to Pako for coffee, food supplies, to pick up a book at the Geelong West library or for an evening stroll to dine out with friends.
Popular Sparrow Park and highly rated schools are also within the neighbourhood.
The cottage, built in 1870 and once owned by a sea captain, is rich in earthy tones and character features after a loving restoration, complemented by quality modern additions such as the 2.5kw solar panels which can easily be upgraded to 3.0kw.
Heritage highlights include leadlight windows, Baltic pine-lined walls and ceilings throughout, pressed metal features, Baltic pine floors, fireplaces and original brick chimneys and mantelpieces.
The property’s original stable is now a modern-day workshop/garage with attached art studio.

The home’s three generous bedrooms, including main with built-in robes, are located off the light and bright central hallway featuring a solar-powered skylight.
