The jewel of the original Kendall land grant of 1828. This is a rare opportunity for an astute purchaser to secure this productive piece of land and the historical home, for their own. The 254 acres is currently a workable and productive beef cattle property. With enviable location and lifestyle plus the current improvements, opportunity to derive other income presents itself. This includes an approved 3 × 5 acre lot subdivision on the southern end of the property.
The Victorian, rendered homestead, Circa 1848 – 1865 set in park like gardens, exudes serenity with its lovely wide wrap around front verandahs complimented by the summer shade from the magnificent Magnolia Tree which has been growing for around 100 years. Come on inside, a step back in time, you will find high ornate ceilings and cornices, cedar doors, floors, skirtings, architraves and windows throughout the home. A wide welcoming hallway leads to a spacious drawing room, perfect for entertaining with good natural light and a feature marble mantle piece encasing the winter fireplace. Experience the sense of yesteryear in the large front bedroom, also off the entrance hallway. Then down to the main body of the home where renovations, sympathetic to the period, have created more open plan and practical living areas. An old Canberra wood burning stove and a pressed metal ceiling remind us again of the time of the home. A small hallway takes you to another charming bedroom plus a good sized office and main bathroom with claw foot tub and large shower area. The generous main bedroom is across from the living area and has a huge walk in robe and ensuite with access from the verandah as well. A sizeable timber kitchen is ready for the cook of the family having a large ceramic top stove and modern conveniences. Stroll on through the tranquil courtyard area to the rustic brick two-bedroom, ensuite quarters which still retain part of the original old kitchen. Beautiful timber ceilings complete the perfect get away or guest accommodation. To the side of the courtyard is an old workman’s cottage converted for use as a laundry/storage room. A few metres walk from the home you will find the heated salt water pool and wired in spa, both housed in a huge double brick pool room with amazing timber ceilings. Relax and enjoy.
This is a property with many improvements within close proximity to the home and include a secure 18 × 15m Colourbond machinery shed with 3 phase power and a 3m wide verandah/carport at the side. A large double brick veneer garage and a timber slab milking shed with Colourbond roof being an historic feature. Located across the farm are an excellent set of steel cattle yards with an Arrow loading ramp and RMP veterinary crush. Extra shedding includes a large hay/machinery shed, a corrugated iron and timber barn and cattle feed shed with timber feed bins, original dairy and landmark concrete silo.
Another possible income earner is the secondary accommodation which is a comfortable 3 bedroom weatherboard home extensively renovated throughout with lovely kitchen and bathroom. A 9m x 15m Colourbond garage/workshop completes this home.
