Homefinder: Rare historical gem

Rivers Point is a rare find: a waterfront two-bedroom cottage overlooking Hamilton Harbour. The historic property is perfect for boating enthusiasts and is only a short drive into town.

Harbour Realty Ltd has put the grade three listed home on the market for $1.5 million.

“Rivers Point, a unique cottage in a most amazing location on the harbour, was originally built as a warehouse by Thomas Jones in the 1700s,” said realtor Esther Young.

“It is believed that the warehouse was used to store and relocate lumber.

“In the later part of the 1800s, the property was sold to Samuel Saltus Ingham, and to this day the property remains in the ownership of his family. “With a hip roof and exposed beams, the original house was in a rectangular shape; there have since been additions on both ends of the cottage.”

The Paget cottage sits at 32 Pomander Road, conveniently located beside the City of Hamilton and its restaurants, schools and grocery stores.

“Overlooking the harbour, with direct access to the water, this wonderful quaint property is situated close to Hamilton and in a very desirable location,” Mrs Young added.

“With the opportunity to build a dock on the northern side, this is a fantastic and rare find for any boating or water enthusiast.

“On approximately a quarter acre of land, this lovely two-bedroom, two-bathroom, grade three listed cottage needs TLC and a discerning eye, but will be a most gorgeous homestead for a family.”
