Kilbirnie’s Original Log Cabin Cottage

Welcome to Kilbirnie’s very own log cabin cottage that is still largely in its original form. This 1920’s gem is incredibly private, quiet and tucked away whilst being elevated to capture the sun and gorgeous views over Evans Bay. You’ll find yourself surrounded by a range of native trees and bird song, we just know you will love living here.

This 70sqm cutie features two bedrooms, one bathroom, a separate toilet, separate laundry, open plan kitchen/dining, a basement space for storage or a teenagers retreat, a lovely deck area to entertain family and friends as well as an art studio or home office nestled further up the secret garden on the large 1,152sqm section.

There is quite the story and history with this property. When the house was built, the tongue and groove lining was going to be vertical but Mrs. Fabling (original owner – daughter of an American Ambassador and lived to 102 in this property) said it must be horizontal, like a log cabin. She stained this herself with Creosote and it is still like that today.

So this is an opportunity to get your hands on a piece of Kilbirnie history. Yes there is further scope to add value in the future and this property and section offers great potential. How you choose to utilise this incredible section (1,152 sqm) is completely up to you. Access is currently off Rodrigo Rd (lower off Childers Tce) but in the future there could be potential to come off Duncan Tce too.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our open homes (Thursday 5:30pm – 6:00pm or Sunday 11:30am – 12:30pm) or call Lance or Sonya to arrange your private viewing of this truly unique home.
