This is your opportunity to own one of Emerald’s most historic properties - “STOKES CROFT”. Named after a well-known street in the City of Bristol, England, Stokes Croft was subdivided in the late 1880s, and the spectacular gardens were laid out in the early 1900s. You will be captivated by the majestic charm of this 4.5 acre property from the moment you enter through the gates made from locally quarried stone and wrought iron. Two Golden Cypress mark the start of the avenue of mature Chestnut trees that guide you through the curved driveway to the first of two weatherboard homes.
The first residence would shine with a rejuvenation. Ranging over two levels, it comprises 5 bedrooms, a lounge with an original grand stone fireplace, a sun room, a family bathroom and an early style kitchen with butler’s pantry. The upper level has an extensive balcony that provides wonderful views across the gardens and out onto the neighbouring hills.
The second residence was built in the early 2000s, and offers 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining, bathroom and living area with the added 2 car original carport. The property also boasts an in-ground water-tank and a two-storey cubby-house.
STOKES CROFT offers outstanding potential, with possible uses including a Bed & Breakfast or Wedding venue (STCA), or a family property with separate accommodation for the extended family.
The outstanding aspect of this property is undoubtedly its gardens. Regularly featured in the National Open Garden Scheme, the magnificent grounds boast five distinct lawns, numerous Magnolia and Camellia trees, a Rhododendron dell, a Hazelnut grove, an orchard with established fruit trees, and a vegetable patch. The exotic species on offer include: Pinoak, Tricolour Beech, Gingko, Irish Strawberry, English Oak, Norfolk Island Pine, Liquidamber, Tulip Tree, Copper Beech, Pohutukawa, Horse Chestnut, Linden, Camphor Laurel and Mulberry. An incredibly private oasis, STOKES CROFT is a 5 minute drive from the popular Emerald township, and the iconic Puffing Billy train can be heard from the property. An easy 45 minute drive from the CBD, this property offers both lifestyle and convenience. For your opportunity to view this spectacular property, arrange for your private inspection today.
