Rosebank encapsulates a picture perfect fusion of opulent contemporary living blended with delightful old English charm.
Nestled on a 2085sqm parcel of land in Bungendore village in a pretty green valley in the New South Wales Southern Tablelands, this heritage-listed five-bedroom, four-bathroom residence represents everything that is wondrous about authentic, thoughtful and sensitive renovation.
Originally constructed by local flourmill operator Alexander McClung to house some of his workers, the cottage’s current occupants have taken it upon themselves to lovingly breathe new life into this character-filled home.
The north-facing residence’s front façade appears almost identical to the way it would have looked when it was first constructed 132 years ago while the interiors contain ample evidence of many of the original period detailing – including tongue-and-groove lining boards, hardwood timber floors and ornate cast iron fireplace surrounds.
But this airy abode has also been extended and reinvigorated to incorporate many modern conveniences including a cavernous designer chef’s kitchen, 16ft cathedral ceilings, open light filled living spaces and the integration of bespoke timber French doors which lead to the home’s lush lawns, beautiful flower beds and many covered and uncovered alfresco dining and entertaining zones.
The home has wide, covered verandas at the front and along both sides offering a private sanctuary from which to marvel at the meticulously landscaped country gardens or listen as the birds bathe and frolic in the property’s European-inspired drinking fountain.
Previously used to run a commercial B&B, Rosebank offers ample opportunity for additional income-generating activities for the savvy investor.
With its quaint flourishes, authentic charm and well appointed living, sleeping and entertaining spaces neither words nor pictures can truly do justice to this incredible property.
