DescriptionYOUR OWN PIECE OF HISTORY...
Traquair House (circa. 1860) was the former Bank of New South Wales and sits on an impressive blue stone foundation among its historic gardens with original outbuildings.
This impressive home has 4 bedrooms (3 with open fireplaces). The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (previously the original bank vault) and walk-in robe. The spacious open-plan living / dining room, which has both a fire place and a split-system for heating/cooling, is filled with light and looks onto the panoramic gardens. The large updated kitchen has granite bench tops, stainless steel appliances and overlooks the picturesque side garden. There is a large bathroom with spa in the centre of the house and also another separate toilet and laundry. There are polished floorboards throughout.
The house has an interesting history ; Captain Moonlight, the famous bush-ranger, was a friend of the original owner and used to stay in the house. The house has previously been used as tearooms and also as an art gallery.
