The classic elegance of 'Gowan-Brae', a beautiful country residence built in 1910, is complemented by a serene farmland setting amid 10.6ha of fertile fields.
Mature trees, an orchard, and sweeping manicured lawns surround the home to create a tranquil riverside setting less than 15 minutes from Taree.
From the moment you arrive you can't help but be impressed. The entrance, complete with stained glass windows, 10ft ceilings and original polished floorboards immediately welcomes you home. Wander down the long hallway towards a large bright living room complete with an open fireplace, perfect for unwinding with family in the heart of the home.
The casual loft retreat is a delightfully large versatile space with views through the treetops, ideal for an additional bedroom, rumpus, or home office.
Gowan-Brae features four bedrooms providing ample space for a large family and guests. The master bedroom includes en-suite and large walk-in wardrobe, and makes a perfect adult retreat. The oversized bathroom, with shower and deep bathtub, is perfect for relaxing, and is convenient to the other three bedrooms.
The perfect blend of heritage and modern living is highlighted by the brand new kitchen which is adjacent to the sunny dining room, taking full advantage of the garden views. And of course, no country residence would be complete without a wide wrap around verandah for a cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of red at dusk.
Storage and vehicles are also well-catered for with a workshop, original dairy and bails, farm shed, garage and semi-enclosed carport.
Ferry Lane is indeed a quiet country lane leading to the old ferry ramp adjacent to the property, meaning you can launch your boat in just moments!
Now you CAN have the best of both worlds – convenient country living, adjacent to the wide waters of the Manning River and only a few minutes drive from Cundletown, Taree's northern suburb.
City water is connected to the home, and troughs for horses or cattle are dotted across the lush green fields.
We're delighted to confirm that the house was not affected by the recent floods in the area.
'Gowan Brae' is truly a special property and we welcome your early inspection
