The magnificent gardens welcome you to the historic home with a circular driveway and the most spectacular Plane tree as a centrepiece. This sets the scene for the rest of this impressive property.
The true vintage of this home is evident when you enter through the original front door, an entryway suitable for The Queen. Beautiful original stained glass panels, original 4 panel door and door hardware. With a stroke of a paint brush this entry has come to life with spectacular colours and features… 15 foot ceilings, 1 foot skirting boards, a magnificent archway and gorgeous ceiling rose.
To the right be greeted by the 'ballroom'… where many a fine gathering has taken place. This room is a true masterpiece with a central marble fireplace with original tiling reminiscent of a bygone era. Polished Tasmanian Oak floorboards, a gorgeous chandelier… and a secret wine cellar.
Surprisingly for a home this age, the main living area is open plan and extremely inviting. The kitchen is at the rear of the home with a large dining room alongside. The kitchen has had a lovely update with new cupboard fronts, granite benchtops and a large pantry. This dining room open onto an impressive deck of approx. 5m x 5m and sees the views out over the neighbouring properties and down the Mersey River. The living room, on magnificent Baltic Pine floorboards is large enough for the largest of families to get together and with plenty of heating options this room is cosy and inviting.
