The Famous Blair Homestead
Built in 1917 and only the third time ever offered for sale is the famous Blair family Homestead situated on the Old Harrietville Road only 6 km from Bright, and 200m to the Ovens River. A grand building of brick and timber construction with verandahs on all sides, stands proudly at the front of the 9 acre parcel of land and is surrounded beautifully by lush gardens and shady trees. Lovingly maintained and renovated by the current owners the homestead features 12ft high pressed metal ceilings on all the downstairs rooms and the upstairs space has been cleverly renovated and now boasts 2 bedrooms, bathroom and living space which allows the entire upstairs to be used as a parent/children’s retreat or a brilliant opportunity to operate a B&B and share the rich history that this property has to offer with your friends and guests.
The home will allow you to have 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and 2 living areas, the open plan main living zone captures the beautiful morning sun directly into the kitchen which opens through to the casual lounge room. The formal lounge could quite easily become the 5th bedroom or home office allowing you excellent flexibility with your day to day lifestyle. The grounds are in excellent order and flow just magnificently from gardens to lawn area, a large dam and open space. Two 3 bay sheds provide ample storage for your farm gear. The paddocks are secure which will allow you to keep animals of your choice but to see a horse or two with their heads over the fence would conjure memories of years gone by, as you look down the valley and take in your views of Feathertop just like the Blair family did before heading off to muster their cattle in the high country.
This sale represents an incredible once in a generation opportunity to secure a property such as this and is certainly one not to be missed.
