A former inn at Murrurundi in the Upper Hunter Valley has been listed with an asking price of $610,000.

It is now a three bedroom home that has recently been renovated.

Haydonton Inn at 2 Mayne Street is named after Thomas Haydon, who subdivided a large block of land in 1840 which later became the town site of Murrurundi.

It has been listed through David Carter of Professionals Crown Property & Livestock at Scone.

Carter said Mayne Street has several buildings that are listed on the National Trust register; including a cottage that bushranger Ben Hall resided in.

“The inn was built in 1852,” he said.

“It was one of the original accommodation houses in the region and it comes with an amazing history.

“Murrurundi has a growing arts community and is popular with visitors who are interested in the heritage of the area.

“I could see the property being used as a bed and breakfast but I think it the most likely buyers will be somebody looking for a family home or rural retreat.”

Carter said the home sat on 3.7 acres backing on to the Pages River.

“The home has undergone restoration over recent years and now combines beautiful original features with modern convenience,’’ he said.

“The home has three bedrooms, a modern kitchen, a formal sitting room, a study, formal dining room and a spacious living area.

”For the horse lover, the property has two safely fenced paddocks, a set of three stables designed with a central cathedral roof and a functional feed/tack room. The property also boasts an equipped registered well in addition to local town water supply.”
