Wonderful 1902 Federation Heritage Home on 2.4 Acres ~ Fabulous! ~ All Offers Presented

House - Northam WA

GMac Realty are proud to present this wonderful 1902 unique heritage home, a highly significant building with classic period craftsmanship and beauty, architectural merit, association with W.A. history and the prominent Northam Throssell family

Mayor Lionel Throssell, who brought electric lighting, the telephone and the train-line to Northam, built this fine house next door to his WA prime minister father George, on the 17 acre family estate … later the house became a maternity hospital and then part of a nearby school … thereafter privately owned since 1985

Steeped in history and on the Heritage List and State registers, this amazing home is a product of the influence of wealth in Northam in the 1890s, brought about by the gold rush in those times

Clearly there is great potential for many and varied uses with this property, subject to the usual permissions

In addition to being used as a wonderful family home, perhaps conversion to a upmarket hotel and or a restaurant, offices, a medical centre, health club, a country club, training centre, community centre, HQ facility plus a lot more could well be your plan here

Set on an elevated site of 9693 m2 and built into a landscaped setting, there is a formal boundary gated approach along a circular driveway, an enormous moreton bay fig tree on the northern boundary (a Northam landmark), lovely garden areas and formerly, there was an immaculate bowling green and tennis court, perhaps for you to restore?

A truly exquisite exceptional home in Northam’s heritage precinct, this is also an aesthetically pleasing fine residence of Federation free style, designed by leading architect of the time, Henry Proctor, who also designed the Northam Town Hall and Freemasons Hotel

There are many examples of superb craftsmanship, including externally, beautiful tuck-pointed red brick masonry, a distinctive double story decorative turret tower, topped by an open area belvedere with commanding views, front gable, corner bay which rises through the roof as a parapet, magnificent front entrance and wide verandas on 4 sides featuring wonderful joinery

Internally, the period ornate craftsmanship continues even more so, you’ll enjoy special timber panels, doors, and windows, extensive beautiful leaded and stained glass, classic very high ceilings, incorporating decorative roses and cornicing, many original pendant light fittings, elegant hallways and archways, luxurious jarrah flooring, fireplaces with period joinery surrounds, plus much much more, all fine top quality throughout

Notably most of the home and features are in original condition and rarely, not spoilt by multiple later attempted renovations

The huge living and dining area of classic proportions has very high ceilings, a fireplace and reverse cycle air-conditioning … the large country kitchen with a veranda vestibule adjoins and has the original Metters stove, still in daily use

Leading off the beautiful hallways are a drawing room, 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Outside there is also a 4 room self contained cottage, double garage, sheds with workshop, a swimming pool and a gazebo in the grounds

So who would this property suit? Families, historic heritage building lovers, people who want a really unique lovely old home, entrepreneurs and businesses with ideas only limited by their imagination, you?

Seize the moment here and secure for yourselves a unique and truly wonderful opportunity, to love and enjoy a magnificent building and property, in a great location with so much future potential in so many ways

… just a pleasant 60 minute cruise from the edge of Perth and the Airport, Northam is the largest town in the Avon region and a very progressive developing successful place

Northam is WA’s largest inland town and a great place to live, with good schools, sport and recreation centres, excellent shopping including a new Coles, Woolworths, Bunnings, Spudshed, Aldi, Northam Airport, Flying and Golf clubs plus much more
