“Mystic House”...Guarantee you will remember this property.
Woodforde House circa 1856.
Two titles, unrenovated, Tiny Original Chapel, dual cellars and roof top viewing platform, backs onto the council reserve, so you feel like you are deep in the country.
Mystery and intrigue, OMG beats anything you will ever see, it's at every turn!
History, excitement. Challenge your senses. If you are a scaredy cat, don’t come.
I’m so excited and privileged just to see this two storey blue-stone residence, its not for the faint hearted but WOW, what a property.
This has been in the same family since 1977. The family of six best describe the fun and good times as Mrs Bates in the Hitchcock movie. The house on the hill.
History. Magnificent bluestone “Mansion” of the 1800’s era, built by William Uren, who arrived eight years earlier from Helston Cornwall. He chose this foothills location for its fertile soil and beautiful creek setting. A viewing deck atop the second storey of the home allowed William to see the ships arriving at Port Adelaide his leather goods he was importing.
The tiny chapel has ruby red glass and matching church windows, none of us have any idea why it was there, but it was. They turned it into a bathroom. Imagine a wedding there after its all renovated!
The home is now in need of lots of attention. It remained in the Uren family and later by marriage to the Nightingale family, until the current owners acquired the property. Around the 1860’s a further section on the eastern side was extended to provide the Butler’s pantry and kitchen.
There are ten rooms, double cellar rooms, and a chapel, wrapped around by the return veranda fitted with lacework balustrade on three sides.
Everything needs work but what a property, what incredible grounds spread over two titles. Watch the cob webs, and don’t wear a suit.
Agents Note: Brave people only, leave the kids at home or keep them supervised. Watch the steps.
