Lemon Grove is nestled in a private and peaceful location in the Lower Hunter overlooking the tidal Paterson River.
Built in 1890 by the property’s original owners, the Swan family, the historic late Victorian homestead boasts all the beautiful period features of yesteryear.
Peters Real Estate said the home was in remarkable condition and located only 11km from Maitland.
There are three double sized bedrooms with built in robes, a formal lounge and dining room, wide hallway, large family room, Tasmanian dark oak kitchen with walk in pantry, wide verandahs with cast iron lacework, renovated bathroom, functional office, detached games area and six car accommodation.
Numerous period features include high ornate plaster ceilings and cornice, stained glass windows, French doors, open fire places and fine cedar joinery.
The property includes a second, three-bedroom worker's cottage, set well away from the main residence.
“Lemon Grove” covers 54.2ha or 134 acres of undulating country falling to the river flats and is 95 per cent cleared.
It’s divided into six paddocks with good stock-proof fencing and the property is well watered with a long frontage to the Paterson River, a 210 unit irrigation license and two large dams.
For the past 10 years about 20ha has been planted with lucerne, and this year produced a bumper sorghum crop.
Infrastructure includes a five bay machinery shed, a hay shed, Armco galvanised steel railing for the round and two holding yards together with a steel crush.
