About this listing
Is Binalong the new Gundaroo...? Welcome to 12 Wellington Street in the Historic township of Binalong. Located an easy 45-minute drive from Gold Creek on the Barton Highway, Binalong offers so many advantages in return for the quick and easy commute.
12 Wellington Street has significant Historical value as it is the original Station Masters residence. The Binalong Station Masters house designed and built in 1876, is a unique original example of government architecture of the late Victorian era. Realignment of the railway track in 1915 has ensured its excellent condition. Double brick walls are laid in the English bond style with front and rear eyelash verandas. Features and history are abounding with impressive timber floors and doorway hearths, open fire places and 10-foot ceilings. The property received some minor extensions in around 1920. As you will see, the home has been lovingly restored to replicate all its former charm and glory and is reflective of the era. Its present state is an absolute credit to the current owners who are now in search of their next project. Restored from top to bottom and front to back, this incredible home is now ready for its new owners to simply move in, unpack and enjoy not only this incredible home but also to enjoy all the benefits that Binalong has to offer.
The home is currently set up as three bedrooms plus dining room and lounge room. The dining room however is easily converted to a 4th bedroom should you need one. Each of these rooms features the original fireplaces, two are operational and two are not. The non-working two however can be reverted to again be fireplaces should you wish. The modern convenience of ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning is now installed and at your fingertips for easy and instant climate control. The enclosed back veranda with French doors provides another wonderful space with which to sit, relax and take in the surrounding scenery.
The kitchen has been purposely kept "minimalist" to match the homes vintage while still offering all the conveniences needed for a country kitchen including a very impressive ilve majestic 70 cm custom made gas/electric stove.
Outside and the 1384m2 block provides an abundance of places to hide and play including perhaps the most impressive "Man cave" I've seen to date! A 14m x 6m garage and workshop with corrugated thermo span roof and insulated walls, perfect for a studio retreat or a handy man's haven. This modern marvel has been carefully designed and built to blend in with the current home and to meet the Yass council's heritage listed properties criteria. The rear courtyard offers a warm sheltered and pet friendly space with timber paling fences and a large garden shed at the rear.
The easy-care yards are framed with low maintenance native gardens and rolling lawns where you can enjoy Binalong's sunny days, abundant bird life and stunning sun sets. Walk to local school, shops, post office, coffee shop, general store, butcher, pub, golf course and pool. Enjoy a casual meal or chat at the nearby Hotel Binalong or step up for an unforgettable steak from the famous Royal Tara Motel with your Chef (and local legend) Tom Duffy.
Don't delay your inspection on what is possibly a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure you own piece of Australian history while also surrendering yourself to the tranquil and peaceful surrounds of Binalong.
