The great Australian dream can be many things and this home has all the potential. It may be your next family home, a hobby farm, holiday home or make a beautiful bed and breakfast.

This home of historical proportions sits on a sprawling 6-acre block. The circa 1900, five-bedroom, Bluestone homestead is filled with charm.

From the pressed tin 13-foot ceilings, ornate fireplaces and sweeping staircases, the character and allure is unmistakable.

The first grand entry hall leads to two king sized bedrooms, both with fireplaces and picturesque views, and one with a built-in robe and bay window.

A pine staircase leads to two substantial sub-ground level bedrooms with built-in robes and under-stair storage.

The fifth bedroom sits adjacent the master bathroom complete with all the character of a clawfoot bath.

Two large living rooms offer space to entertain and host sizeable dinner parties.

The modern kitchen pays homage to the era of the original home and offers open-plan casual dining.

Additional features include a storage-filled laundry, split-system air-conditioning and combustion heating.
