Balaclava Cottage is a comfortable 1890s home set within well maintained, low maintenance lawns and gardens.

Zoned R3 Medium Density Residential, ‘Balaclava Cottage’ was purchased by the present owner’s family in the 1930’s and is now offered for sale for the first time in nearly 90 years.

Believed to have been built around 1890 for Arthur Berckelman, a veteran of the Crimean War who named his home ‘Balaclava Cottage’ following his involvement in the memorable Light Brigade charge at Balaclava.

Featuring original timber features and ceilings (original pressed metal in some rooms), Balaclava Cottage has four large bedrooms, an updated kitchen and bathroom, separate dining room and a large open living area. Situated close to shops, schools, station, bus and clubs.
