Isla bank


Be transported back in time to an era in architecture when space was king, and comfort reigned supreme in this beautifully maintained character home harking from the turn of last century. Be the third only owner of this wonderful home full of history and original period details. A formal entrance sets the tone with rich Matai flooring and native timber skirting before ushering you through the central and spacious hallway from which pivots service, social and sleeping zones. A charming country-style kitchen and scullery features a mix of modern and original showcasing a fabulous black enamel Falcon cooker complete with gas hobs and electric ovens and matching rangehood, engineered stone surfaces and a native timber benchtop originally a counter from Smith & Caughey's now with built-in storage. All this shares a delightful family space complete with wood burner set into original brick fireplace.Formal dining with working fireplace welcomes chic entertaining with French doors leading to a quaint covered veranda while the lounge makes a statement in style with ornate pressed tin ceilings, dado trims and lead-light sash windows evoking the grandness of yesteryear. All three bedrooms are generous doubles and variously feature ornamental fireplace, veranda access and views into lovingly landscaped gardens. A multi-purpose room previously served as the maid's quarters and then the gun room is now the office but could easily be converted back into a fourth bedroom. The main bathroom captures heritage romance with tongue and groove panels, claw-foot bath with the contemporary convenience of separate shower and heated towel rails. Set on 16,389sqm (more or less) with four paddocks suitable for grazing and the triple-bay barn, entrepreneurs will see the opportunity for a B&B whilst the tree-lined loop driveway, photogenic gardens, would make it an ideal wedding venue. An exquisite home that can't fail to impress with its innate charm and timeless sense of style.
