A 100-year-old house in the B&B belt on McLachlan Street has sold for $1,450,000.

The last time it sold, in 2015, it was for $1 million less - $450,000.

Since that sale, however, it has undergone a renovation, and it is now used as an upscale B&B.

The kitchen.

The loft.

White Birch Cottage (circa 1920), at 63 McLachlan Street, is set on a 760-square-metre block.

The property comes with four large, "luxuriously styled" bedrooms and a loft.

Flooring includes original timber, carpet and tiles, and there is ducted heating, reverse cycle air conditioning and ceiling fans.

There is a combustion wood fire in the lounge and dining room area, and original fireplaces in each bedroom.

The private courtyard is paved, with French doors leading to an outdoor dining and entertaining space.

The main bathroom has a bath and double vanity.

White Birch Cottage sold on September 1.
