This beautiful late 1800's home, built in heritage "Tenterfield brick", was placed high above the town and was designed to take advantage of its position to view the growing village of Tenterfield back when the steam trains had only recently begun to arrive. Our nation was still only a small group of colonies and the town was yet to become the focal point for the Federation Movement, but the solid granite footings for this home were already in place. The home is set on 2789m2 of level land, to the east of the highway in a picturesque part of town with wonderful neighbour nearby. It has internal double brick wall construction with decorative pressed metal ceilings 11 foot 6 inch above the floors are wide board polished timber. Beautiful arches reflect the period of construction and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have ornate fireplaces encasing new slow combustion heaters. A modern toilet and bathroom have been added. The house boasts a large addition on the eastern side facing the back yard, where the well designed chef kitchen and family room overlook the very child safe, secure fenced rear lawn. As new gas stainless steel oven and dishwasher grace the kitchen as well as many large drawers and cupboards. This area also house the huge walk in pantry and laundry and is heated by its own large slow combustion heater making those cold winter nights warm and snugly. A large covered outside patio abuts the family room and catches the early morning sun. For the man of the house, a huge near new metal garage/workshop and a large garden shed can house all his "toys" (3 cars+) and another 2-car garage is for the family transport. The purpose built chook house keeps the eggs flowing with two 5000 poly tanks supplying water to the four specially built raised veggie gardens. This is truly a beautiful well-kept gem from the past and for the right purchases today, it will bring years of love and joy into the future.
