Starting life as a simple, symmetrical 2 roomed cottage in the early 1840’s, rumoured to have been a Doctor’s consulting rooms and residence, after several owners and many changes the property is now a beautiful home blending old and new.
Located on the corner of High and Rowe streets, nestled well back from the road, the home retains its multipanelled large sash windows and solid timber entrance door.
Displaying beautiful design characteristics typical of the time in Strathalbyn using local materials including some bluestone and brick construction.
Inside the flexible floor plan allows 4 bedrooms, a study, 2 living areas, formal dining and a timber kitchen. The front formal room is a lovely place to relax and read a book on a winter’s day while a recent addition provides a space for a family to play, entertain and grow.
Beautiful features include high and ‘Lysaght’ pressed metal ceilings with central roses, fireplaces with mantels, extensive use of high timber skirting, and the thick stone walls are also highlighted.
Modern conveniences such as RC AC and slow combustion heater for all year comfort and storage is throughout the home. The main bathroom features a handcrafted vanity using recycled timber from the local townhall just down the road.
Meandering garden paths wind their way through the spacious 1914m2 garden providing a visual surprise around every corner. There are plenty of veggies, over 30 mature fruit trees and colour in the many Spring bulbs.
You will be excited to discover the cellar access hidden under the return verandah surrounding the home.
Hedging provides privacy and large established trees including a pear and 150 year old olive tree which frame the front of the home.
A convenient side entrance from Rowe Street provides easy access to the ample shedding on the property including a double carport, work shed and garage. A small garden shed is also handy.
Rain and mains water are connected to the home.
This is a beautiful property right in the heart of our lovely historic township. Close to schools, shopping, medical facilities, cafes and restaurants. There is a commercial possibility and perhaps even subdivision potential, both subject to council consents.
‘Clifford house’ is looking forward to its next chapter.
