AN unliveable miner’s cottage with no floor could be the start of something special in Drysdale.
The tiny two-bedroom cottage at 154-196 Murradoc Rd is on 9.99ha of land, that includes a sugar gum plantation.
Hayden, Ocean Grove agent Paul Raicevic said the property would suit someone looking for a lifestyle property.

“It is pretty much a blank canvas, the cottage has been restumped but no flooring has been put back in,” Mr Raicevic said.
“The vendor believes someone will come in and demolish it and rebuild so there was no point in doing more work to it.
“It is much easier to get a building permit with an existing house already there.”
There is potential to build a new dream home or renovate and extend the original cottage while the sugar gum plantation provides potential for an extra income.
Mr Raicevic said it could be used for firewood or building materials.
The property is zoned farming and is a short drive into Geelong or down to Portarlington’s ferry service to Docklands.
CoreLogic data shows the property last sold for $650,000 in 2015.
Price hopes are now $1 million to $1.1 million.
