"Atholin" The old rectory, near the Clyde River, Bothwell
Enchanting sandstone home sitting on a 2-acre parcel of land, just a stone's throw from the Clyde River. Originally the house was built during the early 1900s from sandstone quarried in the Bothwell area, subsequent extensions were built during the 1950s which have created this wonderful family home.
The original part of the house boasts exquisite stone work, high ceilings, large rooms and the renowned Australian heritage hallway. The substantial extensions to the property have enhanced the living areas, created bathrooms. The sunroom has a westerly aspect, and is such an ideal position for the winter sunny days, and those who enjoy indoor plant propagation.
As a family home, there is so much space, up to 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas, formal dining room, library and or music room and great separate kitchen. The formal living room is beautiful with large picture windows, ornate plaster work and overlooks the garden area facing north.
The owners of the property have continued the stain glass tradition, which not only enhances the existing work but also adds a dimension of personal reflection.
All of the rooms are of large proportion, with open fire places, exposed floor boards, four panel solid doors.
The house is on a flat block with a mixture of both native and fruit trees, rose beds and lawn areas. There is room for a sheep or two, chook or four, but an oasis in real terms.
Bothwell is a lovely country town that has good facilities, and only an hour or so to Hobart, or less to Glenorchy CBD. If you are considering living in a rural type environment, Atholin' could be the place for you.
