Ghostly goings-on in 19th century mansion
Very cold, very eerie
UPON entering The Oaks historical homestead, it is hard to believe you are still in suburban Plumpton.
The long driveway and spacious grounds complete with chickens, a well and a rusty shed make you feel like you have gone back in time.
But it’s what is on the inside that is really different – rumour has it the Hyatts Rd home is haunted.
Knocking on the door, I count myself lucky I am here with our photographer and not alone. The owner lets us in to a dark hallway and leads us to the room where “the most paranormal activity happens’’. Great!
The room is old, with paint peeling off the walls and cracks along the ceiling, and despite it being 26C outside, it is very cold.
The room is filled with four or five pianos and an organ, and we don’t see or hear anything during our time there, but the room’s eerie nature is undeniable.
As we leave, the owner assures us that despite living alone he hears footsteps along the hallway to that room “all the time”.
