45 Alison Drive, Happy Valley
Mid 19th-Century splendour
This historically significant home unites colonial charm with contemporary sophistication and provides a rare opportunity to reside in a lifestyle property on over 1/3 of an acre of prime land.
The home, established in the 1840s by Alfred Hallett, an early settler and colonist who arrived by sail on the Africaine in 1838, has withstood the test of time - a testament to the home’s structure and building materials derived from local stone and hand-made bricks.
Enter the home for the first time and one can almost feel the history. Notable features like the hand-made glass colonial windows, chandeliers, original cedar book cases, fireplaces and floor-boards, add period charm and character to this impressive property.
Enjoy the ample living space with family and friends both inside and out with formal lounges, dining room and the all-weather outdoor entertaining area and cinema adjacent to an in-ground heated swimming pool.
Prepare meals in the large country kitchen and use the second kitchen when required during celebrations and festive occasions. Host garden and cocktail parties in the secluded grounds that face the home or relax with a book under a tree.
Unwind in claw-foot bathtubs in two classical style bathrooms, whilst your guests have a third bathroom for their convenience.
Store your wine collection in the cellar or enjoy a game of billiards whilst contemplating where the secret tunnel goes.
Spend your night’s sleep in one of five bedrooms. The master and second bedroom are reached by ascending the original Baltic-pine stair-case and the second bathroom is on this level for convenience.
The remaining bedrooms on the ground level with kitchen and bathroom provide an option for extended families or student accommodation.
Opportunities to live in homes of this age and significance are uncommon. The history of the home is available to all interested parties and inspection by appointment can be made by contacting David Brookman on 0415 170 541.
