Pitnacree 10 Old Pitnacree Close
Grand Victorian Residence Circa 1880's - "BOREEWAN" (meeting place)
This unique Victorian residence is a magical reminder of an enchanting era of Maitland's history.
The land was originally part of a government "Crown" grant of 103 acres in 1863 and was passed along to when the residence was built around the 1880's, an architect's plan dated 1884. During its term of ownership in 1909 the Clift family had thoroughbred racehorses. The property changed hands several times. The Clift's purchased it for 1,000 pounds from the Mackay family who purchased it from the Mann family in 1884, going back to the Muir family in 1868. At some stage, Les Darcy worked on the property in the back shed of the house as a blacksmith.
This fine period home was of 6 bedrooms, a dining room, drawing room, huge kitchen, pantry room, maid's room, 2 bathrooms, cedar timber staircase, front verandahs upstairs and downstairs. All original features still exist. Tessellated tile and marble front verandah, stained glass door frame, high ceilings, approximately 3.5 metres, seven cedar fireplaces, cedar skirting boards and architraves, wide hallways, cedar timber staircase, cedar timber floors and double brick sandstock walls. The house can also be divided into two and function as two separate dwellings creating rental opportunities.
This grand home is in need of full renovation and your opportunity to relive it to its former glory and be the masterpiece it is.
This property is situated in a rural environment part of East Maitland, a farming village called Pitnacree. The location of Maitland City is central in the Hunter Valley to the vineyards (approximately 20 mins drive), Newcastle and the beaches (approximately 30 mins drive) and approximately 1 1/2 hour on the M1 freeway to Wahroonga, North Sydney. Local private and public hospitals, major shopping centre, quality public and private schools and Newcastle University by train if need be.
The fertile farming flats are ideal for crops, organic farming, a hobby farm with horses, cows, pigs and chickens.
Besides the opportunity to restore to a family residence, other possible considerations, subject to council approval, could be bed and breakfast, a reception centre, flats or a farm stay.
This is your opportunity so I invite you to step back in time and inspect this magnificent property. Contact Greg Ransom on 4933 8011.
