Very rarely do these types of development opportunities come up so close to the town centre and feature such a property that has rarely changed hands. On offer is dual occupancy in a large historic home along with DA approval to build a third dwelling plus a clear, flat level block on a separate title.

Leigh House (built in circa 1870 as a rectory) is regarded as one of the finest examples of random rubble stonework found on the southern tablelands. Original built for Reverend Richard Leigh who later became Canon Leigh, the homes gothic features includes beautiful stone work, gables with decorative, ornate bargeboards, original cedar and many other period features.

This stunning large two story home is approved and configured as dual occupancy with downstairs currently tenanted. Upstairs requires renovation prior to letting, with the work already underway. The down stairs accommodation includes two very large bedrooms (one of the bedrooms has retained its original marble fireplace), large lounge room, sun room, two bathrooms, kitchen/dinning (including wood burning stove), study, laundry and foyer. Upstairs the home includes two bedrooms plus study (or third bedroom), large separate living room, bathroom, kitchen/dining room (currently striped out for renovation). Alternatively it could be reconverted into a stunning 400+m2 home on a large 1894m2 combined block.

In addition to the two story home are the original stone stables, a beautiful structure in its own right. A DA has been approved to develop these into a 2 bedroom cottage. The plans include 2 bedrooms, open plan kitchen, dining and living room along with a bathroom and loft storage/child's bedroom The DA and plans are available for interested parties to review.

Also included in the sale (on a separate title) is a 700m+ vacant flat block.

With the ability to develop three dwellings on one block with strata potential (STCA) and development opportunities on the vacant land on separate title (STCA) or convert into a single historic home on combined land of over 1890m2 the options are endless. Call now to arrange a private inspection and to review plans.
