Arguably one of the region’s 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 would be expected from a home of this calibre.
As visitors enter the striking main corridor, the stately master bedroom is on the right boasting an original marble fire place and an atrium style en suite complete with lead light windows and a claw foot bath.
The second bedroom is just as large and also has its own fire place while a further three bedrooms are down a separate corridor and share the family bathroom.
Both the formal sitting room and dining room are grand in proportion 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 1200mm oven and cook-top together with an abundance of bench space, two sinks, a dishwasher and room for two 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.
Gangster, Squizzy Taylor is said to have hidden out here in the early 1900s while 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 12 foot ceilings, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, archways, corbels and decorative quoins to the brickwork complete a picture perfect ambiance that would be impossible to replace.
Boasting a location which is only 10 minutes to Haileybury, St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar schools as well as being within walking distance of golf courses, tennis courts, wineries, restaurants and local shops, this is the ultimate in luxury lifestyle.
The privacy and luxury of this home can only truly be appreciated by taking the time to meander through.
