Listed as one of the oldest houses in Richmond, Clear Oaks is an early Georgian farmhouse which dates back to the 1800s and is embedded in a rich history of original settlements and convict colonies.
Ideally located a short stroll to Richmond amenities, the home is nestled on just under an acre of land, with established grounds which overlook the lowlands.
The stunning heritage home is made from brick with an iron roof and small window panes which were originally transported from England in 1808 but have since been upgraded to double glazed panels.
The ground floor has a verandah which opens into the formal lounge with fireplace, formal dining and a sitting room. The living area and kitchen at the rear of the home also house fireplaces.
The upper level has three bedrooms, main with fireplace, study area, storage room, second bathroom plus a reading room with raked ceiling and dormitory windows.
