“A slice of country paradise.”
The Old Post Office Cottage had its launch on March 8, with its owners Bill and Anita Hindmarsh offering a slice of what the property has to offer.
Bill had been visiting town on a regular basis since 1983 and always had a dream to own a place in Mudgee.
The moment the building was up for sale, Bill fell in love with it immediately and decided this was the home that would turn his ‘pipe dream’ into a reality.
“I’ve always had that pipe dream to have a place up here,” he said.
“I’d been looking half seriously for the past couple of years and a couple of places had come up that I thought about getting.
But, when this came up I said to Anita, ‘If I had an exact wish list, I couldn’t come up with a place better than this.Bill Hindmarsh
“It has history, character and is in Eurunderee.”
Directly in front of the cottage is the original old post office of Eurunderee that was run by Henry Lawson’s mother for a number of years.
The cottage itself was the post master's cottage that was said to be in a state of disrepair until approximately six years ago.
“We have had a terrific starting point from the previous owners, and Anita and I have put in some very nice finishing touches in the place,” Mr Hindmarsh said.
Maintaining the character of the building, the original floorboards remain as do the original light fittings in the central part of the home that were restored by the previous owners.
The old meat room is also still on site, with the Hindmarshes determined to keep it in original form.
You don’t see a lot of properties quite like this.
The location is not only ideal for a guest stay, but also has the potential to be a venue for a wedding with photogenic surroundings.
Surrounded by vineyards, wineries and relatively close to town, the place is also ideal for a group of visitors to the region.
It’s a stone's throw away from wineries, great restaurants yet on the doorstep of town.
The Old Post Office Cottage is located on 349 Henry Lawson Drive, Eurunderee.
