Carn Brae - stunning stone mansion, beautifully renovated
The Phone enquiry code for this property is: 0113
Built circa 1904, heritage listed in 1980, this stunning stone mansion has been lovingly restored and renovated over the last 10 years to once again become one of the great houses of the Mid North of South Australia. Perfect opportunity to start a successful Bed & Breakfast or function centre, an impressive family home.
This elegant home has a classic corrugated iron roof with cast iron tracery; bullnose 2 metre wide verandahs with tessellated tile floors and cast iron lacework that encompass three sides of the house; and a 22m tower topped with a Widow’s Walk.
The home retains wonderful heritage features inside as well. Original hand painted leadlight glass highlights windows and doors throughout the house.
Ornate 4.26m (14ft) ceilings with high picture rails can be found in every room.
The detail in the woodwork surrounding doors and windows, the seven fireplaces – two with exquisite mirrored over mantels, and the original deep cornices in the main rooms show the craftsmanship and attention to detail of another age.
The home boasts five generous double bedrooms, one with an ensuite. Three of the bedrooms are carpeted, the remainder have the highly sought after polished timber floors that enhance all the main rooms of the house.
There is a large formal living room (7.5m x 5m), a bespoke country kitchen / dining room (5.5m x 5.5m) and a library which could double as a study or a butler’s pantry.
The main bathroom has a luxurious bath and separate shower. The large laundry has ample storage. An additional study / computer room, with original tessellated tile floor, leads through to the large cork-floored family / sun room (9m x 4m) that overlooks a beautifully established cottage garden with formal flowerbeds, a mature orange tree and a sultana grape-vine covered pergola.
A picturesque conservatory adjoins the garden as does the garage and former Chauffeur’s quarters, which supplies three additional rooms with water connected.
A separate 2 car carport is situated at the end of the driveway opposite the kitchen door. The base of Carn Brae’s tower contains a small charming winter sunroom and staired access to the Widow’s Walk that sports breathtaking views of the city of Port Pirie, the Pirie River with the Flinders Ranges in the distance.
The home has reverse cycle air conditioning throughout, ducted in the main building, and two water tanks for the garden and surrounding greenery that cocoons the house. Situated just a short walk from shops, restaurants and cafes, this unique home is a perfect blend of elegance, space and comfort
