This beautiful, historic home was built by the same builder as Schaeffer house and accurately reflects the exceptionally elevated level of both craftsman ship and elegance attributed to homes of this era. The prospective owner stands to gain not only a home offering the epitome of old world charm, but also a piece of history itself.
Built in approximately 1875, the home takes pride of place in Grafton's most sought-after heritage precinct. With history ranging from once being a doctor's office, to being used as a boarding home. This property has a rich background which will peak the interest of many history aficionados.
Lovingly restored the home offers modern comforts whilst maintaining and showcasing the decorative and extravagant elements of the period. With beautiful polished cedar floorboards and 12ft ceilings with ornate pressed tin, the home is alive with history and elegance, quite literally, from the floor to the ceiling.
Three of the six bedrooms sit in their original position in the home with all bedrooms having ceiling fans and the master including large built in wardrobes. The carpeted fourth bedroom is located upstairs and is superbly well lit. The main lounge offers warmth and respite from the working day with relaxing earthy timber tones and a decoratively tiled fireplace and mantle. Adjoining the lounge, the library entices, offering the opportunity to lose yourself in the pages of your favourite novel. The home also features formal dining, a kitchen with modern appliances blended perfectly into the older style setting, and a main bathroom larger than most bedrooms.
Bedrooms five and six are found in the unit off the back patio. This unit features open entertaining, living and dining space and a standalone bathroom. With polished timber floors and open flowing spaces, the unit fits well with the styling and feel achieved by the home.
The yard is fully fenced and home to many different varieties of fruit and nut trees including macadamia, mango, lychee, mulberry, mandarin and a passionfruit vine, allowing the new owners and their guests the opportunity to appreciate home grown meals, much like the original homesteaders would have in their time.
With all this and more to offer, and currently rented for $530pw, this magnificent home will certainly sell fast. To secure your interest in this piece of history contact our office today.
