More about this property

Description

Catho Cottage overlooks native bushland at Catherine Hill Bay. This little old miner’s cottage built around the late 1890s, has a big unfenced back garden so there is plenty of room for kids to play and to sit on the back veranda and enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. Only a few minutes’ walk to the patrolled beach and set away from the main road offering peace and quiet and just the sounds of the surf crashing on shore.

The Space

This 2 bedroom cottage has been updated while still maintaining the feel of the original cottage. Catho Cottage is very cosy with a lounge room, a wall mounted TV, DVD player and stereo system. Both the lounge and dining area have modern and casual furnishings. Bedroom 1 has a comfortable queen bed while the second bedroom has 1 double and one single.

The kitchen has a beautiful view out onto the back garden and it is fully equipped with a full size fridge, gas hotplates, electric oven and microwave. The bathroom has shower, vanity, toilet and heated towel rack. There is mains electricity, including solar, gas heating and tank water. Out the back there is a BBQ, which is perfect in summer.

The heating is gas, the electricity is solar and the water is run off tank water, making this property environmentally friendly while still allowing for all of the comforts.

The town of Swansea is only a 10 minute drive away where you will find a Coles, Woolworths, McDonalds, Hotel and RSL Club and many more other food and leisure stores. For a nice barista made coffee visit Coastal Haze Café, at the top of Clarke Street and turn left onto Montefiore Parkway.

Whether you enjoy bushwalking, surfing, swimming, beach, lake, or rock fishing, strolling along a deserted beach, or just listening to the tranquil sounds of the birds at night competing with the ocean waves crashing onto the shore 500 meters away, this is the place for you.
