Highcroft is one of the original houses built on the orchards in Howrah in 1914. This elegant home has stood the test of time and been meticulously restored to resemble its former glory. Situated on the high side of the road with views over the park this unique home is showered in colour and perfume from a well established cottage garden.
Constructed of a solid sandstone base, the home is constructed of vertical timber boards with iron roof.
Accommodation consists of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus a separate study (or 5th bedroom) Off the entrance you'll find a stately formal lounge room. A classic country kitchen with island bench boasts its own internal wood heater that not only keeps the home warm but keeps the billy boiling or the stock simmering through the winter.
Adjacent to the kitchen and dining is a cosy sun room with floor through ceiling windows allowing streams of sunlight to filter in whilst enjoying morning tea and overlooking the floral cottage garden.
Skylights capture the loads of natural light in the stair well ascending to a stepped back landing with a separate reading alcove. Or, escape to the large window seat in the 2nd bedroom with a captivating book.
