Heritage elegance on Essex

This magnificent two-story family home, Shearer Homestead, was originally built in the early 1920's for Mr James Shearer of Hugo and Shearer, Drapers Ltd Queen Street, Masterton. Little expense was spared with native timbers, oak panelling, batten and plaster ceilings, ornate cornicing, leadlight and bevelled glass features throughout.

To quote David Kernohan from his book Wairarapa Buildings, in part "...... .villa that speaks some of the language of the English Cottage style with its dominant roof line, but also makes reference to Dutch antecedents with its hooded upper floor windows with rounded bay windows below"

The current vendors are only the fifth owners of this beautiful historic home. There has been very little modification of the interior, with the building's integrity principally intact. This is a rare opportunity to purchase your slice of history.

Much admired, this magnificent picture-perfect 270m² (more or less) character homestead awaits its lucky new owners. Situated on the desirable west side just a short stroll to town, close to excellent schooling and rail service. Positioned on a 1,740 m² (more or less) section with northwest aspect, sweeping lawns and landscaped gardens, further enhance this spectacular property.

As you enter the spacious oak panelled entrance hall you will be amazed by the grandeur of this home. The ground floor comprises two reception rooms, with matching curved bay windows, sunroom/office, fourth bedroom and utility room with shower and separate toilet. The spacious light filled open plan kitchen/dining opens out through French doors to the sun-drenched western patio and fully fenced garden.

From the entrance hall you ascend the grand oak staircase to a spacious landing from which you access the expansive Master, two large double bedrooms, one with sun room, all with built in wardrobes, a generous family bathroom and separate toilet.

If you would like to be the next lucky owner of this property and be part of its historic tapestry, then call me today for a private viewing.
