A DOUBLE fronted cottage and the Old Spot Hotel were among only a handful of buildings in Salisbury East nearly 150 years ago.
The 1870s character home on Wynn Vale Drive, now part of Gulfview Heights, is on the market.
Owners John and Anne Dalglish are separating with the historic home to downsize to a two-bedroom apartment.
“I will be sad to see it go,” Mr Dalglish said.
“We’ve had a lot of good times here.
“When we first moved here we lived next to fields and the children used to feed the horses next door.”
The couple bought the home in 1991 and added their own touches inside to the five-bedroom property.
“We pretty much rebuilt it with a new roof, plumping and electrics,” Mr Dalglish said.
“But the basic house is still the same.”
The solidly built home with high ceilings has a newly renovated kitchen and two bathrooms.
It boasts fireplaces, a study, two living areas, separate formal dining room and a large rear extension.
The home is on 941sq m of land and a 480sq m neighbouring block, formerly the Dalglish’s front garden, is also up for negotiation.
Harcourts Brock Williams agent Nick Pelvay said the home would attract a specialised buyer and was on the market for $585,000.
“It would be someone who loves the area and character builds,” Mr Pelvay said.
“This five bedroom is very much a family home and with the block of land next door also up for negotiation, it’s over 1400sq m on offer.”
