Steeped in its own story from the previous century, Booth Cottage brings traditional heritage living to life... with some curious twists.
Positioned across from 'Carrington House', set amongst similar character homes, Booth Cottage has been lovingly cared for over the decades, with the 587m2 grounds planted and cobbled with winsome curves and turns, perennial gardens enhancing the effect and all to complement the appeal of the two-storey character cottage.

But a surprise awaits! Upon entering the home, rather than smaller rooms typical of the early 1900's one finds a glorious openness that spans from one side of the home to the other. Predominantly white-toned decor increases the sense of light, bright airiness whilst white brickwork surrounds the free-standing logfire (on-wetback) and stretches to the upper level.
There is a fresh, warm and welcoming ambiance inside, incorporating the roomy lounge/dining areas - admirably warmed by both the fire and a heat pump - and adjacent country kitchen.
Two lovely double bedrooms are found downstairs (the main boasting a modern ensuite and French doors outside), whilst a spiral staircase beckons one up to an enchanting split-level second storey comprising a third double bedroom, study area, third toilet and plenty of storage space.
Outside, the private section is lower care, offering minimal lawn to mow and with wonderful use of the brick paving and metaled paths to accentuate the beautifully established cottage gardens. A sweet character pavilion provides a covered nook from which to enjoy the pretty grounds, as does two verandas around the home. Double garaging (with single entry) has an adjoining, large spare room offering options for use and with a wee veranda of its own.

Zoned rural - yet positioned superbly for easy access to Clareville and Carterton's town centre - this charming property enjoying a pastoral aspect is a superb option for the character-loving smaller family, couple, solo person, and/or commuter.
