A stunning homestead in Balhannah has been spectacularly updated throughout, and offers scope for further transformation if desired.
Richard Crowley bought the 1853-established Ravenswood from Justice Bruce Debelle 11 years ago, attracted by its location and potential.
“I remember Bruce saying there were only about 200 truly great properties in the Hills and this is one of them – it’s got spectacular views and I fell in love with it,” he says.
Largely renovated when he bought it, Mr Crowley has since made further improvements to the property, which offers three dwellings over its more than 40ha – the main home with three bedrooms and a study; a separate dwelling with two bedrooms and a living room; and guest accommodation featuring a bedroom, a living area and a studio – plus numerous outbuildings.
“It’s a fantastic entertainer – we’ve had numerous parties here over the years,” he says.
“It’s the ultimate lifestyle property and is wonderful year-round. It’s a wonderfully versatile property too – because it’s on two titles I was always tempted to split one off and build a modern home up on the hill with spectacular 270-degree views, and that’s something the next owners could do. It would be the ideal place for a resort or glamping accommodation.
“It has so much potential.”
The property is being advertised without a price guide and is being sold through Harris Real Estate.
