By creative architecture and total empathy with the past, the French Farm School (circa 1876 - Frank Worsley was a pupil) has been refurbished (circa 2004) and a new home (addition circa 2001) that blends the history of this iconic building, with contemporary living - created by passionate owners and David Brocherie. Sitting on an elevated (approximately) 4000m2, across from the waterfront, this sun drenched property enjoys full on views of the harbour, as well as the hills, relaxation/reinvigoration is guaranteed. The school now performs as an amazing lounge (which has also served as a venue for local charity dining, on occasion), a room that is both gracious and inviting with amazing light, oak floors, it is essential to view first hand! The rest of the house (some 270m2 appx.) blends beautifully, open plan living, log fire, great kitchen, 3 bedrooms, ensuite plus main bathroom, double garage (internal access) - all enjoying those enviable views. Outside brick paving, pergolas, formal gardens plus fruit trees, glass house, sheds, easy sealed access/parking - a property that can only be truly appreciated by an inspection, first time on the market since 1971 - allow plenty of time to appreciate fully, call me.
