About this listing
Nestled in the village centre, one block from Beach Road, opposite the Bruce Stream, this very original Colonial Cottage was built by Captain Bruce (a whaler) for his brother in-law, John Donnet & his nieces, who arrived from Scotland & occupied the cottage from 1856. This delightful 2 storey, 3 bedrooms cottage evokes all the feelings of yesteryear.

'Rebecca's Cottage' is set on an easy-care section with paved outdoor living at the back, and enjoys unexpected privacy. The first impressions are of originality; "great bones"; a wonderful opportunity for restoration - the result will be a perfect Akaroa cottage overflowing with character, charm & history - are you up for it?
