Her­itage with a homely feel


ROSAMUND HOUSE is a re­stored two-level res­i­dence dat­ing back to about 1914 and set on a 1.21ha es­tate.

Re­lo­cated from New­mar­ket 20 years ago, the prop­erty fea­tures orig­i­nal char­ac­ter and style thanks to french silky oak tim­ber doors, pressed metal ceil­ings, VJ walls, ceil­ing roses, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing, pic­ture rails, lead­light glass, dec­o­ra­tive breeze­ways and arches, and win­dow hoods.

Steps lead up to the up­per level and a cov­ered veranda wrap­ping around two sides of the prop­erty.

Ad­ja­cent to the en­try are a sit­ting room and lounge area, with french doors open­ing to the east­ern-fac­ing sec­tion of the veranda.

To the left of the main en­try, look­ing to the front of the prop­erty, is the main bed­room, fea­tur­ing a walk-in wardrobe and an en­suite with com­bined cor­ner spa bath and shower.

At the north-fac­ing rear of the res­i­dence is a kitchen and ad­join­ing meals area, both with french doors to a bal­cony. The kitchen boasts gran­ite stone bench­tops and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a Bosch dish­washer and gas cook­top.

Nearby is a bath­room with a sep­a­rate bath­tub and shower.

Also with french doors to the bal­cony is a bed­room with builtin wardrobes.

Be­yond a study at the western side of the floor­plan are two bed­rooms fea­tur­ing french doors lead­ing to a bal­cony with views to the front of the prop­erty. The larger room also boasts built-in wardrobes.

Ad­ja­cent to the two-car garage on the lower level are a workshop and stor­age area.

Also on this level are a bath­room with shower and a sep­a­rate laun­dry, both of­fer­ing out­side ac­cess.

A sep­a­rate barn has a bed­room and liv­ing area on the up­per level. The lower level fea­tures a com­bined bath­room and laun­dry, sin­gle-car garage and open-plan kitchen and din­ing area lead­ing to a pa­tio.

Other prop­erty fea­tures in­clude a pool, se­cu­rity alarm sys­tem, ir­ri­gated green­house, or­chard, chil­dren’s cub­by­house and a dam filled with fish.
