A historic double brick home in Victoria’s Maldon has been listed for sale with a $690,000 asking price.
Charlotte House was built circa 1860 by carpenter John Boots, shortly after the 1850s gold rush. He was something of an evangelical entreprenuer.
Following his death in 1875, Charlotte Boots occupied the property until 1885.
Comprising three bedrooms and one bathroom, Charlotte House has been restored but still boasts original features.
The home has original timber, brick paved and flagstone floors as well as a Stanley wood stove with a water jacket.
The house also includes four open fireplaces and boasts bluestone foundations.
Boots sold the property to Ellen Paul in 1875, who then sold it to John Templeton Couchman, a local mine manager, in 1910. It has since had four more owners.
Located on Templeton Street, it is situated on a double block of 2,024 square metres.
