FRENCH PROVINCIAL ESTATE
Be charmed by this historic Montville residence built in 1895 that has been lovingly cared for over the years.
Built by the Smith family who settled in Montville in 1893 and began farming on the surrounding 154 acres.
From 1897 to 1913 the Smiths operated the first Post Office & telecommunications from the house that was then known as “Eastnor”.
Recently refurbished & renovated inside with quality fittings throughout including new kitchen & bathrooms.
The property would suit a family, would be ideal for short term guest accommodation or maybe tap into the wedding market as a venue.
Offering three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, family & formal living as well as a casual sitting room & a study.
The cottage has 2 large rooms plus a bathroom and is ideal when you have an overflow of guests, it could also have potential for Airbnb letting.
The house has a stylish open plan kitchen with a French provincial theme including door handles sourced direct from France.
Gorgeous travertine flooring throughout the kitchen, family room, main bathroom & the open laundry.
The family room has a modern European free-standing fireplace plus there is an open fireplace in the formal lounge.
High ceilings with the most exquisite pressed metal ceiling work throughout the oldest parts of the home.
Features include original fretwork, hoop pine & cypress pine flooring plus elegant chandeliers to most rooms.
North facing wide verandah with easy access from the kitchen for casual day or evening entertaining.
French doors flow out from most rooms onto the verandahs, the front entrance, side entrance & side porch.
The separate cottage was a Post Office from a neighbouring village and was moved onto the property some years ago.
Meander through the established leafy gardens to experience all the property’s different personalities.
Majestic Jacaranda trees with large stag horns adorning them are a real feature of the 5705m2 grounds.
From the back verandah you overlook the spring fed lake on the neighbouring parklands.
