The Homestead and Schoolhouse
The Homestead features an open plan kitchen and lounge room with 4 large bedrooms each with their own fireplace! There is an extra room that could be converted to a 5th bedroom. The homestead is in classic style with wonderful old style touches throughout. High ceilings, open fire places are just some of the original features of this homestead along with some modern touches such as reverse cycle air conditioning, ceiling fans, built in robes and a gas outlet. There are also electronic window shutters on the front of the house.
With an internal access there is the magical old school class room . With magical high ceilings and polished floorboards the options for this room are endless. It could be used for a home business, a tutoring room complete with the original chalkboard, an art gallery, a billiard room, display room, or maybe a café (with council approval) Or, just use it as a grand dining room as part of the homestead to enjoy grand family get togethers.
Just at the rear of the homestead is quite a large granny flat accommodation that just needs to be completed inside. The kitchen, bathrooms are in place, the septic and power is connected but it just needs to be finished off if you wanted to use it as separate accommodation.
At the rear of the homestead block is a beautiful little cabin which is fully lined and has wrought iron finishes. The cabin could be converted into anything you desire. It would be a perfect man cave if desired! There is also an established vegetable garden and chook pen.
