The home is beautifully appointed inside and out. Character features includes polished timber floorboards, high ceilings, open fireplaces with traditional mantels, 3 double bedrooms, plus a fabulous spacious loft incorporating the 4th bedroom and parents retreat. The formal sitting room is at the front of the home and could also double as a 5th bedroom if you want more bedroom space. The renovated country kitchen has beautiful new cabinetry, stainless appliances including dishwasher, original wood oven, a fantastic butlers pantry, and encompasses a dry cellar as well. The kitchen opens to the dining room and a very comfortable and beautifully decorated living room. The bathroom has been updated and the laundry is very spacious indeed.

Outside a secure double garage with cement floor and power, plus a stone workshop that could easily be converted to gallery or studio. The double vine covered pergola/carport is also very versatile. Beautiful gardens surround the home with a number of outdoor alfresco dining areas all with sensational views over the Broughton River providing and extension and real peace and privacy to the home.
FORD COTTAGE This quaint three roomed stone cottage is currently used for a B&B, with more permanent accommodation throughout the week. The cottage provides upgraded country kitchen, separate living room, bathroom and one bedroom, all really well appointed. The cottage is fenced off from the main homestead with its own septic and gorgeous garden setting.
But wait there's more, with another two separate titles completing the property, providing access to the property and cottage from the Main North Road. These titles add real potential to extend the B&B, build offices, both subject to council consent or just garden to add value to the property as a whole.
