Allhomes’ top pick of homes for sale in the surrounding region:
50 Ryrie Street
$1.55 million-$1.6 million
5 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 6 car spaces
Once upon a time, houses were made with pure grandeur and elegance. Number 50 Ryrie Road is one of these homes.
Built in 1856, the home known to locals as Tindmarsh was modelled on a rural Irish inn. It has since been meticulously restored to its condition circa 1860.
Step inside the home and you’ll step back to the 19th century, when walls were made from solid granite stone, fireplaces featured stunning cedar mantles, personal libraries filled entire rooms and french doors opened out to balconies, verandahs and breezeways.
With 14 rooms including a fine entrance hall, drawing room, library, study, original 1850s bar, breakfast room, gourmet kitchen and generous bedrooms, Tindmarsh presents a rare opportunity to be used as a bed and breakfast accommodation.
There is also a spectacular two-storey wooden barn, which currently houses an antiques gallery downstairs and a large studio, office and storeroom upstairs.
Outside, the charming gardens have been more than 150 years in the making, with established trees, wisteria, grape vines, vegetable gardens, chicken coop and woodshed.
But that doesn’t even scratch the surface of all this heritage home has to offer.
