The significant residence of lavish proportions and classic style, constructed from freestone and brick has stone footings, stone and masonry internal walls, and features lofty ceilings, hardwood floors and stunning fireplaces.
Graced with an aura of dignity and elegance, Scottsburn Lodge—extensively refurbished in the 1980s—is in sound condition and is ready for its next chapter. A brilliant opportunity for the discerning buyer to renovate, modernise and bring the residence back to its 'glory days'.
The grounds offer lawns, shrubs and trees surrounding the house with tennis court and in-ground concrete swimming pool (both requiring refurbishment), two stone outhouses and shedding. Well equipped with six-stall stable, timber-framed hay shed, concrete and stone water tanks, water bore and dam.
A galvanised iron cottage and shearers quarters with five main rooms plus shower room provide the genesis for an income-producing 'farm-stay' accommodation (STA).
