A spectacularly unique, magazine-featured home with a 5 star, boutique accommodation cottage, very rarely presents itself to the marketplace. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful properties in Millthorpe, the 1606sqm (approx.) property has been lovingly created and styled from top-to-toe by its owners and renowned “Tomolly” homewares store owner, Belinda Satterthwaite.
Steeped in rich history and genuine heritage surrounds, the purchase of 7 Blake Street, Millthorpe offers a very unique opportunity to be apart of the villages long list of triumphs, and acquire the lifestyle that only a small, historic village can offer. Preserved beautifully, the heritage listed village, with the original buildings still intact and touches of cobblestone, is a popular playground for locals and visitors alike. Vibrant, truly unique and, for lack of a better word, very special.
Building on its unique base of preserved heritage character, the village has transformed into a vibrant community serving the visitor trade with 19th century history & beautifully preserved buildings and offering the food, wine, shopping and accommodation experiences that the visitor expects today.
