Linden Hills is a grand country estate that has been meticulously extended and renovated to celebrate the very best of modern conveniences while remaining authentic to its early 20th century heritage.
Originally built for local identity Ben Stocks, this impressive 100-acre estate is nestled near the village of Harden in south west New South Wales where it commands picture perfect countryside vistas of rolling hills and lush open meadows.
Entry to the estate is via bespoke electric wrought iron gates leading to a paved driveway that gently winds its way through the beautiful grounds up to the foot of the 760sqm homestead’s entrance lobby.
Originally built in 1905, the homestead was extensively but sensitively modified by its current custodians in the early 1990s who managed to thoughtfully restore the original character of the structure while adapting it to suit a more contemporary lifestyle.
Constructed from double brick with an iron roof, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom master residence boasts all the character design features you would expect in a home of this vintage including vast wrap-around Oregon timber verandahs, intricate high ceilings with custom cornices and ceiling roses together with large sandstone fireplaces, marbled hallways and a powder room.
The modern conveniences continue into a separate indoor pool house featuring a 12m x 6m pool, kitchen and spacious entertaining areas.
The splendour of the main homestead is equally matched by the estate’s character-filled outbuildings that comprise a three-bedroom managers house, two-bedroom shearers accommodation, a one-bedroom worker’s cottage in addition to a rustic shearer’s shed, butcher’s shed and a 30m x 12m workshop with 3 phase power.
As well as numerous storage areas for farm equipment, the estate features a grain silo, commercial cool room with 8m3 fridge, 12m3 freezer and a storeroom. Water supply to Linden Hills is from a town water connection, two bores and a dam with aerator fountain, pergoda and jetty.
Just a 90-minute drive to Canberra, 3.5 hours to Sydney and less than 10 minutes into the centre of Harden, Linden Hills represents the perfect lifestyle offering for the astute investor.
