Sitting high on the hill in Ashby Heights is a beautiful piece of Northern Rivers history and with a motivated vendor, this property is ready to sell.
The old weather board home, relocated to its current position from Little Keen Street, Lismore just over 4 years ago, with all its history and style, was just what the current vendor was looking for. So, she set about the task of rescuing, relocating and renovating the old house to bring it back to life.
The restoration has been sympathetic throughout to the period of the house, keeping the original wall lining and floor boards as features, while not missing the opportunity to bring the 21st century into the property where needed.
The upstairs is the original part of the home. It includes three bedrooms, all of good size with 2 having built ins and French doors opening onto the side verandah. There is also a beautifully restored bathroom with a free standing claw bath as the main feature. This is a testament to the vendor's eye for detail with the restoration, creating soft clean lines and a real feeling of yesteryear.
The kitchen is also in keeping with the period, with a large Belling range, country style cabinetry and pressed metal splash backs. A large walk in butler's pantry is a new addition and creates that extra space for storage and preparation of meals.
The lounge room is open plan to the kitchen dining area and also has French doors leading onto the northern side verandah.
To complete the house there is a fully self contained, one bedroom unit downstairs. With its own bathroom and laundry it's the complete package for extended family and friends or jump on the band wagon and rent it out through AirBnb.
With plenty of rain water storage, garden sheds and fire protection assets already in place, you've got a property that's had most of the hard work completed.
