Historical Federation Villa Farm house! House - Property ID: 839854
Historical Federation Villa Farm house is now on the market!
Originally owned by the Pridham family, this local heritage listed property is believed to have had its foundations go down in the 1870's and the homestead built around 1900. Still on 1447m2 of land, a significant portion, in today's standards, the home includes a large return verandah, with projecting bays, high cast iron verandah posts, brackets and frieze and detailed moulded brick chimneys. The walls are constructed of face stone with brick quoins and plinth which may have been painted.
Internal and external renovations have been carried out so it retains most of its original elements; a wide entry passage way features an arched leadlight window and leads you through this grand old home, where it features a large number of its original architectural fittings and fixtures. The decorative pressed metal ceilings and cornices are stunning, with picture rail, polished timber floor boards, timber doors, and architraves, timber skirting boards and the lead light panels to the main entrance are a real feature.
Fourteen foot high ceilings and massive internal walls are through out the original part of the homestead, which includes four antique marble fireplaces. The home was extended over the years, and now consists of three large bedrooms, a formal dining room, a huge lounge, central bathroom and the kitchen/meals.
There is a free standing laundry that's as big as a bedroom, and steps to a cellar under the meals area that would be ideal for wine storage, this really completes the property.
The kitchen/meals area is spacious and totally modern, with quality tiled floors, and ample bench and cupboard space. The kitchen includes a double sink, under bench oven, stainless steel two draw dish washer and a Gaggernau cooking system with deep fryer, hot stone barbecue and ceramic hot plates.
The modern bathroom with claw foot bath tub, toilet, sink and shower alcove is accessed through an open arch with a dual built in linen press.
The grounds are still quite spacious with several shady trees to keep the heat off during the summer months and an abundance of plants, small shrubs and lovely green lawns. A large gable toolshed is at the back of the home for storage and sections of the yard have been fenced off to provide secure areas for pets and children. The property is in the hub of the suburb, close to major shopping, schools and public transport and only a few minutes to beautiful Aldinga beach.
