Arguably, one of the regions oldest and most prestigious homes "Clovelly" is being offered for sale for the first time in decades. Restored well beyond its original grandeur this stunning Victorian masterpiece has all the charm and character of a bygone era but still offers all the luxuries that you would expect from a home of this calibre. As you enter the striking main corridor the stately master bedroom is on the right boasting an original marble fire place and an atrium style ensuite complete with leadlight windows and a claw foot bath. The 2nd bedroom is equally as large and also has its own fire place while a further 3 bedrooms are down a separate corridor and share the family bathroom. Both the formal sitting room and dining room are grand in proportions and are elegantly separated by a two way fire place and have a beautiful garden vista from each of the windows. The hostess kitchen features an antique style 900mm oven and cook-top together with an abundance of bench space, 2 sinks, dishwasher and room for 2 fridges. The family room which flows through from the kitchen and casual meals area is a great place for everyone to gather as it overlooks the magnificent gardens on the left and the glorious solar heated in-ground pool and spa on the right. Outside, the extensively landscaped grounds are reminiscent of the grandest of English estates with some of the trees dating back to when the home was originally constructed. Brides and Grooms frequently choose to have their wedding photos taken here and regularly conduct their ceremonies here too. Outlaw, Squizzy Taylor is said to have hidden out here in the early 1900's whilst he was on the run from the authorities and it was also home to an order of nuns in its earlier days. Victorian features such as 12ft ceilings, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, archways, corbels and decorative quoins to the brickwork complete a picture perfect ambience that would be impossible to replace. The privacy and luxury of this home can only truly be appreciated by taking the time to meander through. Please call for an appointment or inspect as advertised.
