“Mystic House”...Guarantee you will remember this property.
Woodforde House circa 1856.
Two titles, 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. Renovate or just enjoy a magic lifestyle, plenty of room for a tennis court or a landscapers dream come true.
With history at every turn, this property will leave you with so many great memories. This has been in the same family since 1977. The family of six best describe the property as fun and good times.
Magnificent bluestone “Mansion” of the 1800’s era, built by William Uren, who arrived eight years earlier from Helston Cornwall. He chose the 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 it’s all renovated!
The home is now in need of attention. It remained in the Uren family and later by marriage to the Nightingale family, until the current owners acquired the property in 1977. Around the 1860’s a further section on the eastern side was extended to provide the Butler’s pantry and kitchen. Today Woodforde House is a majestic looking bluestone return veranda residence looking for a new owner. Ripe for restoration and sited on 2618sqm of prime eastern suburbs land. Private and secure, with so much potential. There are ten rooms, double cellar rooms, and a chapel, wrapped around by the return veranda fitted with lacework balustrade on three sides.
Needs work but what a property, what incredible grounds spread over two titles. This property truly has so much history, so many fun times and now the current family are looking forward to passing it on to a new family to write its own history.
