In the shade of the famous 300-year-old applebox “But-but” tree, sits historic “Dowling House”, located in the heart of Beechworth close to Spring Creek. Originally constructed as a prefabricated two room miners’ cottage by prominent former resident Mr James Scobbie, two homes were spliced together & modified to its current Victorian era styling by Mr Nicholas & Elizabeth Dowling around the turn of the century. Dowling House has a vibrant place in the history of gold rush Beechworth. Known as Nurse Dowling’s Private Hospital during the period 1916-1927; the cottage was the original birthplace of many a local luminary, including members of the current owners extended family! Upon entry you are greeted by a central hallway displaying many period characteristics, there are two generous bedrooms both featuring open fireplaces, a third bedroom with interlinked study or fourth bedroom, toasty warm lounge leading to the country style kitchen/meals area and onward to the separate bathroom, adjacent laundry/wet room & outside a return verandah and handyman’s shed. The fully fenced block is a level useable parcel of land that is easily maintained, allowing you time to enjoy the many quality restaurants and coffee shops of Beechworth or perhaps you could stop for a spot of shopping, it’s all only a short stroll away!
