Welcome to Ellerslie House _ a grand old lady (c1875) that has been lovingly and painstakingly restored by her current owners to her former grace and beauty.
This splendid homestead situated on an impressive 1887m2 block sits amongst other historic homes and was built by Daniel Room who also built the nearby 'Mayfield House'.
Soaring ceilings, beautifully polished floorboards, decorative architraves and an impressive 10 metre long hallway leading to an equally impressive 33m wrap-around verandah are just some of the stunning original features of this four bedroom home, carefully brought back to life with no small detail spared; from the large, full-length sash windows, the original door handles, push plates and brass finger pulls along with the tiling and restoration of five fireplaces, all in working order.
The stylish bathroom boasts a striking timber vanity, deep freestanding bath and eye-catching, large walk-in shower with picture window. Re-purposed slate shingles from the original roof now tile the bathroom walls and are also incorporated in both the kitchen and alfresco dining area.
Old world charm blends seamlessly with today's modern lifestyle, with the sophisticated kitchen enjoying quality stainless steel appliances, magnificent island bench and breakfast bar. Wide sliding doors open on to a huge fully covered alfresco dining area, a perfect place to entertain guests overlooking the expansive front yard and gardens.
Outside there are over 200 native trees and shrubs, including numerous endangered species, garden pond and rustic firepot along with an abundance of hops, vegetable and herb garden beds and more than 30 fruit trees contributing to the sprawling edible garden.
Open for inspection October 10 - 13
