One of the first homes built in Wentworth Falls, 'Green Gables' is the epitome of elegance and charm. This historic home (circa 1880), in excellent condition, is set on over 3900sqm of manicured, park-like gardens. Spacious, high-ceilinged formal dining and drawing rooms feature large open fireplaces, polished, original-timbered floors and arts and craft decorative timberwork. The drawing room has large, double-hung lead-light bay windows. Other living areas include a west-facing sunroom looking out onto a paved and plant-adorned courtyard, and a light-filled family room ideal for relaxation. The house has a spacious kitchen with modern fittings, original, wide hardwood floorboards, a large walk-in pantry and space for casual dining. Four generous bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a study, a hobby-room and two north-facing verandahs complete the house.
The house has underfloor gas heating, 5 functional open fireplaces and an early twentieth century wood stove. There is also an abundance of storage within the house. A delightful artist's studio adjoins a garage. Many of the home's unique and original features have been preserved, including cobbled and brick-paved paths which wind down through the established gardens. The gardens contain a range of flowering plants, as well as a variety of exotic and rare shrubs and trees. Two wells and a 45,000 litre water tank afford the potential of ample water for the gardens.
This exceptional property is a short stroll from the village of Wentworth Falls, its railway station, shops and schools. It is also only a short distance from breathtaking Blue Mountains scenery, including views of the Wentworth Falls and Jamison Valley.
With its rich history and depth of character, 'Green Gables' is a fine example of grace and comfort in the Blue Mountains.
