This stunning federation home has been refined for the modern family while retaining its original grandeur.

Impressive inside and out, it features a decorative facade, heritage return verandahs and cottage garden forecourts.

Armstrong Cottage was built in 1894, and according to the Busselton Historical Society, it was constructed by or for Commissioner Hare who married Miss Margaret Brockman - the Fair Maid of Perth.

The layout provides ample accommodation for families of all stages. Restored classical lines define the original home, a wonderful example of the architecture of the era.

High decorative ceilings and cornices, ceiling roses, a sweeping hallway with ornate arches and architraves, original fireplaces, leadlight windows and polished timber floorboards delight at every turn.

Blackbutt floors refine the French provincial kitchen with modern appliances and period features.

A formal dining and lounge room leads off the kitchen with classic ornate detailing, French timber doors and a leadlight window.

A 100-year-old English oak staircase with built-in bookcase takes pride of place in the formal lounge and leads to the master bedroom with built-in robes, timber and leadlight windows, a study nook and ensuite.

French doors link the original part of the home to the family and dining room with vaulted timber ceilings, custom timber bar and temperature-controlled wine cellar.

Covered courtyards lead to a Tuscan-style entertaining area with large wood fire pizza oven and overhead vines.

This exceptional character home offers the ultimate combination of timeless elegance and prime position.

Don't miss this opportunity to acquire a truly historical landmark.
