A Place to Call Home embraces the colouring in book trend

A Place To Call Home is back on our television screens, and a colouring book has been released to commemorate the occasion.

The book, available for all age ranges, shows the textures and patterns of everyday life in 1954 rural Australia. The 1880s house on the front cover.

It's filled full of old-timey dresses, antiques and pictures from yesteryear.

It's not just children who colour in now either.

Count Andy Faber-Castell told news.com.au that pencils have gone up 300 percent in sales in one year alone for their adult range.

After Channel 7 decided to axe the show, A Place To Call Home fans were relieved when Foxtel picked the Sunday night drama series up for a third and fourth season.

The original cast with Marta Dusseldorp, Noni Hazlehurst and Brett Climo were reassembled, with shooting around the Camelot, Wollondilly shire and Southern Highlands region.

The Camelot property near Camden on Sydney outskirts was the star of the show.

Set among rolling green pastures with well-established cottage-style gardens, and a winding, tree-lined drive, the historic Narellan mansion was built in 1888 for the White pastoralist family.

James White built it having cashed up from his winnings from Chester, his racehorse which had 19 wins - including the 1877 Melbourne Cup.

It comes with the romantic silhouette of turrets and chimney stacks and gables, the backdrop to many a wedding photo session.

The John Horbury Hunt-designed three-storey house is known as Ash Park in the series.

The 55-room fairytale-liked Camelot and its garden have been stunningly restored by the owners, Brendan and Rachel Power.

The property has actually only had four owners with it last selling in 1999 for $2.6 million.
