4 ROWE ST, STRATHALBYN
THIS tranquil, country bluestone house, formerly ‘‘Bonnar Schoolhouse’’, has been restored and renovated into a five-bedroom family home, retaining many of its original features. The unspoilt original stonework and arched windows give the spacious house character while the foyer opens into the original school hall, with cathedral ceilings, polished timber floors and a slow-combustion fire. There are three main bedrooms downstairs – the master with built-ins and french doors to the main bathroom with corner spa – while the mezzanine has two bedrooms. The 1980sq m property is spacious and incorporates generous lawns, cottage garden, vine-covered pergolas, covered patio and shed.
