Derrybawn(circa 1905) – the epitome of style and elegance
Set among old world style gardens, fronted by lovely privacy trees, in Stroud’s most highly sought-after address, gracious Derrybawn encapsulates Federation majesty, while having evolved to meet a modern lifestyle. This iconic home is set on a spacious, easy care, gently sloping 1345sqm block. The property’s undeniable street appeal brings gasps of delight by passers-by. A coveted north-facing aspect bathes the home and its surrounds in natural light throughout the day. Entering through the picket fence, down the garden path and stepping onto the wide, covered bullnose verandah. Upon entering Derrybawn you are presented with the impressive entrance hall introducing a gracious, meticulously restored interior of formal living and dining rooms, all of very generous proportions. The home retains numerous period features including decorative pressed metal walls and ceilings, 12ft high ceilings in majority of the rooms, beautiful honey coloured Tallowood floors, French doors, gorgeous leadlight feature windows, built-in fireplaces with decorative timber mantles, and many more special details.
A pleasure to prepare and cook in, the all-white kitchen with casual meals area boasts ample cabinetry and bench space, a butler’s sink, electric cooking, dishwasher and island bench with storage. With its rear-garden facing aspect, a lovely timber deck, including a Queenslander style screened area, is a delightful alfresco dining and entertainment venue.
There is also another Queenslander style screen area on the northern facing verandah area, perfect for privacy and morning coffee.
The home’s previous life as an elite boarding house, meant that many guests arrived via horse and carriage. This is reflected in the size of each of the four bedrooms, all with lovely feature windows and garden views. Three bedrooms boast adjoining private retreat rooms. Today’s working-from-home landscape makes conversion of these particular areas into home office space, study, play or craft rooms an easy task. An ensuite is beautifully appointed with period sympathetic fittings, and the three remaining bedrooms share a spacious family bathroom, also period sympathetic, with dual sinks, large shower and toilet. Additional features are; a laundry with third wc, under floor ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, a reverse cycle split system air conditioner, ceiling fans, slow combustion heating, concrete driveway and parking bays, multiple car open garage plus single lock up garage and vegetable plots. While the property boasts all town services, there are also two rainwater tanks for supplementary garden water. A 24 panel solar system is feeding back to the grid, providing you with further cost savings.
