This house is steeped in history, it was the former Prince of Wales Hotel ( circa 1860) and the bluestone construction has stood the test of time. It is now a unique home with 2 living areas and 2 bedrooms in the main house. The studio is adjacent to main building, providing an ideal spot to let the creative juices flow. There is a separate self contained cottage which has B & B potential ( STCA). The bluestone provides natural insulation remaining cool in the summer and retains warmth in the winter. The kitchen features an Arga dual fuel stove, with gas hotplates and electric fan forced oven.
Once outside the house you are surrounded by an established garden of mature trees and low maintenance garden beds with an in-ground sprinkler system. Centrally located in the garden is a rotunda, ideally situated to enjoy the garden and bird life. There is also a shelter courtyard which capture the morning sun.
Adding to the character is the original bluestone stables complete with cobbled floor. All this on a land size of over 2400m2. This is truly a unique property, centrally located but at the same time it has a great feeling of serenity.
