Steeped in Featherston history, this cottage was relocated from the former railway settlement at Cross Creek on the Remutaka incline. The cottage was built at Cross Creek around 1878 when the incline was first opened. Cross Creek was a village of approximately 20 houses, a school and the station. Occupied by railway employees for 77 years, all the buildings at Cross Creek were sold when the line closed with the opening of the tunnel in 1955. This c1878 cottage is a celebration of the past and present and has been refurbished from top to bottom. The cottage features:
•New carpet throughout the home as well as newly painted interior and exterior with soft tones of grey
•High stud ceilings with open plan lounge and dining with the lounge featuring a large free-standing fire to keep the home warm and cozy over winter
•French doors connect the dining room to a private courtyard to catch the afternoon sun or to enjoy alfresco dining.
•A modern spacious kitchen overlooking the backyard
•Spacious bathroom featuring a beautiful claw foot bath and separate shower
•Two double bedrooms at the front of the cottage
•A third bedroom at the back of the cottage which could be used as an office or studio
•Large garage with space for 5 cars
