Old World Charm with Views

The O’brien family bought this parcel of land when it was originally surveyed in the early 1900’s. It has been in the same family ever since.


At that time they had the pick of all the land in the area and they chose the very top of the hill. It offers views up the Johnson river, and is just minutes from town. The block itself is just short of 1 1/2 acres with no neighbours close to the house and plenty of room for the family to play. It is down a private driveway and is a row of houses back from the road. Most people don’t even know it exists. 

If you built a two storey house on the back vacant portion of the lot you would achieve amazing 360 degree views taking in the whole of the township over the cane fields, up and down the river and beyond to the mountains. 

The homestead is approximately 100 years old with beautiful character features including a wrap around enclosed veranda and soaring ceiling heights. The kitchen and bathrooms have had a face lift and are more than serviceable. 

There is plenty of room with four bedrooms ranging from very large to standard size plus an office and larder. 

The gardens are established with a lovely pool area, several outside and undercover patios, plenty of garages and a good garden shed. 

The astute buyer will see the huge potential for the property today that the O’Briens saw back in 1910.
