The Watch House” Historic Character Home

This stunning character home has a lot of history to be admired such as being one of the first buildings in Carrick as well as being used as a gaol, courthouse, tea rooms, art gallery and private residence. History shows itself when you enter the home as you will find polished timber flooring throughout, original cell doors and locks along with fireplaces.

Boasting gorgeous 14ft ceilings as well as many other original features, this home has kept character throughout with modern and tasteful touches made such as a new bathroom and a new roof since the current owner purchased this home back in 1989.

An added bonus to this home is that it is being sold with the adjoining 1,500m2 block which totals two titles of approx. 2,300m2 of land which has been zoned “village” to allow for developments such as residential, community meeting and entertainment, food services, storage, visitor accommodation and more (subject to council approval). You will need to contact the Meander Valley Council directly to discuss in further detail as to what is permitted and prohibited for this particular property.
