RE­PLETE with rus­tic charm, this is one of the old­est build­ings in Duns­bor­ough.

Known as “The Har­ris House”, it was built circa 1892.

The orig­i­nal wat­tle and daub build­ing has been taste­fully re­stored and mod­i­fied to suit a mod­ern life­style.

A key fea­ture is the fire­place (be­lieved to be orig­i­nal) in the liv­ing area. It has been painted white and now houses a wood­fired heater.the home also has an of­fice and open-plan kitchen/liv­ing/din­ing area.

The kitchen has an is­land bench, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and a walk-in pantry. There are three bed­rooms.

The mas­ter has a walk-in robe and en­suite with com­bined bath/shower.

The home is on a 669sq m block, within walk­ing dis­tance of the beach, cafe strip, town cen­tre and coun­try club.

The gar­dens in­clude cor­ru­gated iron veg­etable beds, fig trees and ma­ture trees.

The home has a low-level heritage list­ing pre­serv­ing the front fa­cade. ■
