Hi there, I’ve just purchased a 1901 Villa in South Australia and the owners let me know there is a small cellar under some vinyl floors (not larger than a coffee table size).
I would like to know if there’s a way to tell based on how it was built whether this was a car inspection pit or a cellar?
The house has the standard four rooms off of a central hallway, with the kitchen/laundry area that leans to the “pretty” part of the home. The “cellar” is in the “lean to” section..
I don’t have any photographs yet because settlement hasn’t occurred. Just after some telltale signs in case someone really understood historic builds!
Thanks very much for your time!
