With charm, character, and an amazing amount of space, this early 1900s homestead mixes old and new beautifully.

This gorgeous period home was once a part of a larger farm holding called ‘The Springs’, and the property still retains the name today.

Built in the early 1900s, 332 Kain Cross Road has been lovingly restored. Features include original hardwood cladding, three-metre ceilings, modern kitchen appliances, restored window frames and sills, as well as a 2.4-kilowatt solar system.

With the majority of the restoration now complete and the hard work done, the property offers the opportunity for someone to put their finishing touches and make this stunning period home their own.

Positioned on a vast 40.47 hectares (100 acres) of land, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is one you’ll love to come to – or escape to.

Ray White Braidwood real estate agent Suzanne Carter said the home’s historic features were a fantastic addition.

“The home has been lovingly restored by the current owner, all the home’s original features have been retained and restored with care,” she said.

“You’ve got great features like the original front door with stained glass, original hardwood flooring, and the home’s wood-fired baker’s oven and cooking fireplace in the kitchen.”

Driving down the home’s tree-lined driveway, you’ll see the wealth of green land surrounding you from every angle.

After you’ve crossed the large front porch, you’ll notice the amazing high ceilings and the original wood door complete with stained glass panels.

Each of the three bedrooms is at the front of the home, with the master bedroom including fantastic views to the front gardens, a walk-in wardrobe, and an ensuite.

Continuing down the home, you’ll find the first of the homes living spaces, the sitting room, which features a wood fireplace and a large amount of sunlight.

Finally, up the back, you’ll find the kitchen and lounge rooms. The kitchen features a mix of modern and classic with an electric stove and original wood baker’s oven.

Suzanne says the home has the best of two worlds.

“This place is like a little piece of Australian farm history that’s been brought into the modern day,” she said.

“The home has great country charm, but with new infrastructure around Braidwood, the internet connection is great so you could spend your time working from home.”

The large lounge room is the home’s second living area with bay windows similar to the master, which makes it a perfect option for a fourth bedroom.

Outside you’ll find a separate studio and laundry, which could be used for storage or as a small workshop.
