The charm of farm life

If the romance of owning an historical cottage set on idyllic, secluded farmlands is your dream, then look no further than this delightful property.

Roseneath is a beautiful farm cottage lovingly maintained and kept in the same family for three generations.

Nestled in a picturesque position well away from neighbouring properties and on a mostly cleared 15ha (40acre) block, there is a good water supply to the property through creek beds and springs, plus great feed, ideally suited to a few head of cattle or horses.

The farmhouse itself is over one hundred years old and has retained many of its original features such as high, pressed metal ceilings and cornice, a marble fireplace, large sash windows and cedar doors and skirting boards.

The home includes three large bedrooms, separate, spacious lounge and dining rooms and a good sized, neatly presented kitchen with plenty of storage and a combustion fireplace.

Other features of the home include built-in wardrobes and split-system air conditioning and heating.

Outside there is an under-cover patio area, along with two large sheds approx 12m x 8m and 10m x 6m, a storage room, water tank and numerous Chook houses with Guinea fowl, chooks and peacocks.

An added bonus of this property is that it also has access to town water.

Ideally located, Roseneath sits less than 10km to the historic village of Paterson and is only 24km to Maitland, providing the cottage with a peaceful yet convenient location.
