Dream a little dream of Bowning

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this beautiful 1840's private residential homestead and well-established and successful business the Rollonin Cafe, including 8 acres of freehold land, as one complete package. An opportunity not to be missed and only seconds off the Hume Highway, in the historic village of Bowning, 10 minutes from Yass, on route from Melbourne to Sydney.  

3 acres of the land also has the potential to be subdivided into 5 separate blocks, create the ultimate hobby farm for yourself or sell to earn extra cash.

On offer we have an 1840's home, Rollonin Café, on 8 acres block. The house and café is on 5 acres block and at the back is 3 acre block that has the potential to be subdivided in 5 separate blocks!

Like a breath of fresh air, this 1840's home steeped in history & charm will renew the senses & take you back to a time where your wildest dreams felt like reality. This house gives an extraordinary opportunity to live in picturesque Bowning on a whimsical bucolic block & work in your very own establishment, 'Rollonin Café.'

Graced with a timeless story & encased in the remnants of Australia's past, the residence offers more than just a place to call home; its an investment in the future & a nod to the past. The original character façade entices the eye & tickles the brain when one learns its entirely made up of convict made bricks. Inside is adorned with hidden treasures like the rose ceiling medallions above, timber flooring below & high ceilings all around. French doors lead out onto the covered veranda where the stunning rolling green pastures can truly be appreciated. Peek up at the original shingles under the tin roof or pop down the seller below. The classic period details are not to overshadow the functionality & upgrades the interiors have seen over the course of owner's blissful life here. The large kitchen invites the gourmet chef of the family to experiment with ease from the modern stainless-steel appliances to the reproduction antique stove. Each living space is encased in unique style & the bathroom features the highly sought after & long dreamed about clawfoot tub. Originally used as a quaint country town Inn, the Cobb & Co. Station Inn, the residence was converted into a private home in 1876 & has been creating memories for families ever since.

Along the way, it was found to have something missing; the heart & soul of its primary intention. And that's when unique The Rollonin Cafe was created by owners Tony & Renata. Inspired by the main house, the café keeps the bygone era alive taking shape in the form of a slab hut designed & built to replicate local buildings from the mid 1800's & there's nothing else like it. The walls are encased in newspaper clippings dating back as early as 1900 & the cottage garden that's surrounds is truly magical. As the children pet Mac the resident Clydesdale, watch from the rustic shed with a glass of wine in hand & let all thoughts of the real-world wash away, for now you're in rural heaven.

For city dwellers with an unwavering romantic heart, this is your chance to finally make the tree-change fantasy a reality. Concrete & congestion can never compare to natural wide-open spaces & a laid-back lifestyle lived in peace & harmony. Bowning holds a historic past that is cherished by locals & beloved by guests from all around Australia & far-flung international destinations. By owning 'Rollonin' & the adjoining home, you'll be in possession a of private sanctuary unmatched by anything for miles, come & see.
