RARE & CHARMING

It is our pleasure to introduce you to the "Redlands School House". Located just 10 minutes from the federation town of Corowa, the majestic Murray river and adjoining Rutherglen with its world renowned vineyards, this wonderful property is set on a country road once frequented by the "Shearing of the Rams" painter Tom Roberts. A rare opportunity now exists to acquire this charming, character filled piece of local history.
The front building or "School House", as it is affectionately known, was run as a primary school from 1876 until 1947 and has now been lovingly restored by the current owners into a huge family and living room or alternatively, an expansive guest room. The remainder of the main house has also been carefully and cleverly renovated and features a sunroom, study, master bedroom, bathroom and gorgeous cook's kitchen. Shaded verandas and decking provide a beautiful setting for outdoor meals and entertaining.
The unique property is surrounded by 12 acres of natural bush with an abundant supply of underground bore water. The lovely garden surrounding the property has well established trees including a gorgeous giant fig tree providing abundant fruit. The current owners are avid kitchen gardeners and have established a large covered vegetable garden and herb gardens next to the house. An adjacent guests' cottage comprises a master bedroom, bathroom and laundry. Other buildings include a bunk house, tool shed and carport.
A stroll up the road will reward you with the view Tom Roberts delighted in when he painted "A Break Away". Having poured several years of labour and love into this wonderful property, the owners are looking to relocate for family and will bid a fond farewell to the "School House". This is one of the most charming properties in the area and is now ideal as a primary residence or a tourism opportunity. The "School House" awaits new owners to lovingly ring the school bell and add their own touch to the long and colourful history.
