A MID-1800s gold miner’s cottage in Maldon renovated and extended for modern living is up for sale.

The 86 South German Rd house with a beautiful garden setting was restored and renovated by a couple who appear on Channel Nine’s Travel Guides show.

The second season of the travel series is on air now and the property owners, Kevin Moloney and Janetta Stones, play a pair of travel snobs.

A wall panel next to the fireplace in the lounge room serves as a hidden door to the main bedroom.

The three-bedroom home on 2263sq m in Maldon, which is 120km northwest of Melbourne, has a $695,000-$764,500 price guide.

“We bought it in 2000 and used it as a weekender for 12 years and then moved permanently from the city,” Mr Moloney said.

“We have renovated it twice and being a historical property from the 1860s, the work was done by a local builder who specialises in such cottages.”

He said the property would suit as a weekender and also for downsizers looking to move into a spacious country home with a beautiful garden.

The property retains original buildings and has been landscaped.

The couple have bought another cottage in the town and intend to renovate it as well.

`The Brambles’ comprises an original miner’s cottage, manager’s residence and office which were part of the mine.

The cottage has been updated for contemporary living while retaining period features, including Baltic pine floors, original open fireplace and imported Morris wallpaper from the early 1900s.

The couple have also crafted a secret entrance to the main bedroom in order to retain the original lounge room.

Another living area in the extended property.

A new ensuite, kitchen and two bedrooms were part of the renovations.

“We wanted the new part of the home to blend in as much with the original,” Mr Moloney said.

Other features include jarrah benchtops, a walk-in pantry and servery in the kitchen, plus a loft bedroom with its own balcony.

The property is listed with Quinta Real Estate.
