$1,359,000

Nestled amongst the rolling green foothills of the Snowy Mountains alongside the Tumut River, is the pretty township of Tumut. Right in the centre of Tumut, this imposing residence is within easy walking distance of the thriving town centre. So prominent & admired is “Sefton House” that it is signposted locally … The building is brimming with history, being built in the 1890s for the local Sisters of Mercy. Prior to COVID, the red brick mansion was operated as a boutique hotel-motel & combined residence. With tourists now returning, this building with nine (yes, 9!) bedrooms PLUS a study room & five (yes, 5!) bathrooms would once again provide a good source of income for the owner. The property is fully fenced, has 9 car parking spaces & is being sold with vacant possession.

Entry from the street is via the original gate & a traditional landscaped Irish country garden. . . A broad verandah with timber floorboards & the original metal latticework is the perfect place to sit & enjoy the landscaped front gardens that are drenched from behind in the northern sun. . . The long verandah ends on the east with a large box bay window that has its own separate entrance, ideal for the owner of the hotel since this is a self-contained section. . . A grand entrance hall with original timber mouldings & archways has 4 huge carpeted bedrooms off to the sides, each with its own fireplace, built-in robes, ceiling fan & original picture rail & mouldings. . . The entrance hall leads into the main living space which is a modern space with spectacular gabled windows to north & south, exposed brick walls & north-facing windows. The effect is very much like a conservatory & indoor pot plants on the tiled floor would certainly enhance this effect.. . The main bedroom has the front bay window, with colossal arch dramatically framing a sunny inglenook for reading. A room off the bedroom could be used as a study or parents’ retreat, or converted to a walk-in robe. French doors open to an en-suite. The main bedroom is part of a self-contained section with an additional bedroom with en-suite & sitting room that flows out onto a second verandah along the eastern side. . . 2 of the remaining 3 bedrooms have an en-suite & French doors to the side verandah, while the 3rd bedroom has a nearby bathroom as well as built-ins. . . The massive kitchen & dining area has abundant space for 10 or more diners & several chefs. The large kitchen has updated cabinetry & abundant ventilation… FURTHER FEATURES INCLUDE: High ceilings, ceiling fans & period fittings throughout (including the original mantelpieces, skirtings, architraves, picture rails, arches, windows, lintels, metalwork, vents, corbels, decorative glass, French doors, verandah lacework, etc); security doors & security screens; side access for an extensive onsite gravel carpark at the rear; manicured hedges to the street boundaries & color-bond fencing to the inner boundaries
