Crossan's Cottage

Originally built in 1865 by John & Agnes Crossan who came out of Scotland, the property was left disused until 2015 when the cottage was purchased with plans to rebuild, preserve & resurrect what was once a family home. With the help and expertise of stonemasons, builders and craftsman along with the owners passion, vision & hard work, the property has been lovingly restored to something as close to its original state. The free range living & dining area offers an expansive social entertainers space where you can cook on the coal range at one end or settle in down with a book by the cosy open fire at the other. Loft upstairs big enough for a bedroom and storage. Be inspired by the stonemasonry work, cedar wood joinery, macrocarpa tongue and groove ceiling above and large hand-picked schist stones below. Sitting on 7.1 ha of mixed fenced terrain there are many options to utilise the land. This private retreat offers minimalist off grid living, something we now all want to get back in our lives. It is close to the popular Clutha Cycleway & only a 5 minute drive into Roxburgh. An ideal haven in an unpredictable world that has character & history.
