An 1880's, solid brick Railway Station master’s residence in the Northern NSW town of Tenterfield has been listed following a recent restoration.

Located in the historic railway precinct, the Railway Station Masters Residence features late Victorian architecture, classic chimneys, polished timber floors and insulated decorative plaster ceilings.

The State Government auctioned off the home in 1989, with the home undergoing some updates before the current vendor paid $260,000 it in an off-market deal in 2011.

“The owner before me did a lot of external work such as adding a garage and courtyard, and making it liveable,” vendor Barbara Lewin said.

The three bedroom, two bathroom home at 6 Railway Avenue has an asking price of $475,000.

Featuring four rooms with double chimneys, a modern kitchen and a combustion heater, the home's bathrooms have all been renovated to a modern standard.

Within the breakfast room is an open fire place and french doors leading to an enclose courtyard with cottage gardens.

Ray White Rural Tenterfield’s Libby Sharpe said the local market has fared well of late, and she is expecting buyers to come from local regions as well as from locales as far north as Brisbane.
