Moss Vale 2 Lovelle Street
'Chapman House', in an exclusive Moss Vale enclave, this federation beauty on just under two garden acres provides luxury and historic living.
Built in 1915 for Sir Austin Chapman, 'Chapman House' was crafted from the sandstock bricks and materials salvaged from Moss Vale's original courthouse. From the high decorative ceilings, to the magnificent sandstone, to the incredible stained glass features throughout, this stunning home is a rare, precious piece of history, sensitively restored to modern standards.
Newly painted and renovated, remarkable features include a sun-filled orangery, oversized bedrooms (two with fireplaces), a formal dining room, country kitchen with a range and a separate study. There is hydronic wall heating throughout. Outside, there is a studio/guesthouse with its own bathroom, a large workshop, a wonderful fenced area for animals, a palatial chicken compound and extensive vegetable gardens. For the children, a magnificent treehouse emerges from the base of an old tree, affixed with a flying fox. A fifteen-metre swimming pool completes the picture.
For those wanting to stamp their own magic, the vast landscaped block, featuring age-old gardens, lends itself to a traditional or modern extension on the home, or a second dwelling.
Situated on a private corner block, just a minutes' walk to the Highlands best golf course and The What If Society – a regional leader in organic, delicious food offerings and coffee, the quiet street presence of this magnificent home is second to none. Moss Vale and its boutiques and artisanal shops, pubs and eateries are just a few streets away and offer an unparalleled, escape-to-the-country lifestyle.
