Positioned on around 3 acres of land with three dwellings situated among some of the most beautiful and established gardens in the area, ‘Ravenscroft’ is a unique and historic opportunity.
‘Ravenscroft’, at 16 Carrington St in Crookwell, was originally built in 1840. The property’s main homestead is a character home that offers a versatile floor plan depending on your needs.
The homestead is currently configured with four bedrooms, a study, two living areas, the main bathroom, plus a second water closet, but it’s very flexible.
Ray White real estate agent Jess Grashorn said the historic home had been well-updated.
“The property has been restored beautifully with all of its character features kept in great shape and maintained,” she said.
These include wide timber boards, high skirtings, patterned ceilings and coloured glass windows, alongside two working wood fireplaces and electric heating for the year’s cooler months.
“You also have fantastic gardens throughout the property, which I think is one of its best features.”
A cottage, currently used for short-stay accommodation, is also immaculately presented. It offers a one-bedroom studio room with renovated bathroom, kitchenette, and carport. For the right person, there is enormous potential to expand this business venture.
Jess said the home has many extra opportunities for anyone looking for them.
“You can have an Airbnb, rent out space on the property for celebrations or weddings, or just live in one of the homes and move the family in,” she said.
The last dwelling found on the property is ‘the lodge’, a weatherboard cottage consisting of a large versatile space divided into two, and including bathroom facilities.
Thoughtfully improved to include an access ramp and two wood fires, it would be the perfect spot for family reunions, Christmas celebrations and weddings.
The property is surrounded by beautiful cottage gardens that create a private sanctuary and a beautiful outlook from every room. There’s also the original blacksmith’s hut (moved part by part from its original location), a dam, multiple storage sheds and 3 acres of space to explore.
This stunning character and potential-filled homestead is just moments from Crookwell’s CBD.
