A Victorian period residence with views over the Inman Valley has hit the market via expressions of interest. 

The Fairview homestead built in 1880 is nestled within 8.342Ha of land at 221 Nosworthy Road

Ray White Normanville Rural Sales Consultant Greg Weber-Smith said the period features blended seamlessly with modern convenience in the residence within its own country estate.

The three-bedroom Victorian period home is supplemented by formal and informal areas, including a light-filled conservatory.

Other highlights include a gracious return veranda, lofty ceilings, original fireplaces, a wide central hallway and thick crafted stone walls.

Multi-level gardens feature an array of established trees, bushes and blooms, with chicken runs, vegetable plots and a goat and pig area.  

Many of the original buildings that accompanied the homestead during its build period have survived, including the workman's and shearers quarters, early livestock stables and accommodation.

“We’ve been very happy and lucky to have enjoyed more than 20 years here at Fairview and we have some wonderful memories,” said vendor Jennifer Melville.
“We’ve converted some of the many sheds to silversmithing and painting studios.” 

The property has potential as a venue for weddings, accommodation or an artist's retreat.
