A TIME FOR TRANSITION
1910 a time of transition, when quality building products were used by master builders to construct homes that defined the foundation of our nation.
In Lorn, an historic river town on the banks of the lower Hunter are many fine examples of the Federation design, but none command the street presence or come close to defining the characteristics of the period as does ‘Ruperston’.
This magnificent residence stands on strong foundations exuding a priceless presence of charm and character by shamelessly showing off its tuck pointed brickwork, classic finials, unique terra-cotta capping, detailed fretwork and original slate roof.
‘Ruperston’ over its long life has had few owners resulting in the preservation of all the original features, but thoughtfully modernized to cater for today’s contemporary lifestyle demands, such as a fully optioned kitchen, with granite bench tops/splashbacks and fully equipped island bench.
There are four bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms and several spacious living areas resplendent with polished timber floors, eye-catching fretwork, box windows and open fireplaces surrounded by marble mantels. Of special interest will be...show more the billiard room with its unique domed ceiling and numerous leadlight windows.
Outdoors there are wide fully lined verandahs, over 2000sqm of private grounds with mature cottage gardens, established fruit trees, full size tennis court with club house, sparkling in ground salt pool, car parking for five vehicles and a teenagers retreat.
Other features include ducted air conditioning, third toilet and shower facility, built ins, irrigated gardens with a spear point, lots of storage space and easy side access to the rear of the property.
You now have a once only opportunity to purchase what is justly considered one of the area’s best preserved examples of the classic Federation home.
