2012 January advised by Geoff Chapman.
23 Molonglo Street, Bungendore, NSW 2621
House: 4 3 1
By Negotiation through Ray White, Braidwood.
Landmark Residence With Plenty Of Opportunities

In 1969 the current owners happened upon 23 Molonglo Street for the first time and fell in love instantly with the old stone house and its rich history. They were enchanted with the atmosphere created by the stables, the cottage and the elm grove protecting the buildings as well as the very wild garden. They immediately started the renovation and restoration to restore both buildings and garden. The cedar doors, windows and fireplaces were stripped, sanded, waxed and brought back to life. Over the years the stables and cottage were converted to create two additional self-contained dwellings.

A charming feature of this unique home is that the building faces inwards around a courtyard overlooking the garden and there is a real sense of a calm oasis as you look out across the green lawn and into the now huge old elms. You feel as if you are far out in the country, but know that you can walk out the other door and get to the store and main street shops in two minutes.

This is a home with a rich, varied and long history, it was chosen as key location for the film 'Ned Kelly' staring Mick Jagger. There were some features of the house that had been especially changed for the film mainly the front two rooms, now bed rooms, that were part of the Euroa Bank scenes in the Richardson film shot in 1968. The home has had many uses - as a bank, blacksmiths, bicycle makers (the first bicycle made in Australia was constructed here), solicitor's, bakery, a stock and station store to name but a few uses. The building is very flexible and some of the rooms have changed uses as the current owner's children have grown up and left home.

Filled with character and charm the extended kitchen and dining rooms have been host to long winter dinners with family and friends by the great fire or pizza nights by the beautiful old oven. In summer, picnics in the garden and evening games of boules have been a constant source of fun and relaxation. It has always been a welcoming home.

The vegetable garden and orchard are a particular delight and working out in the back garden, across the creek, where you can see across to the Lake George escarpment in all its changing lights and colours as the seasons change.

There are many possible uses for this property (STCA). It has been the venue for memorable weddings, it would make an ideal B&B, even a gallery or home office - the opportunities are great. The property sits on two separate lots totalling just over an acre which also presents future development options.

Key features include:
1870's stone residence; 1850's stable converted to a 1 bedroom cottage; 1830's 1 bedroom cottage
Bosch gas stove; Asea dishwasher
Rinnai gas heaters; Jotul cast iron slow combustion fire
Five open fireplaces
Tree lined creek; Orchard; Veggie patches
Established gardens

Now is your opportunity to come and fall in love with this enchanting piece of Bungendore's history. Properties like this do not come up very often and these words can't really do justice to the charm and beauty of "The Old Bank"
