Steeped in history


This address in the NSW village of Bowning boasts the historical Albury House, a four-bedroom home that’s steeped in history, and Mayfield Mews with its two commercial shopfronts with separate café, gift shop and nursery.

“Packed full of history, Albury House circa 1870 is a solid brick home which faces north, and was once owned by Henry Lawson’s aunt and is famously where Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson discussed politics,” says Ray White Rural Canberra/Yass licensed real estate and stock and station agent, George Southwell.

The home includes a family-friendly floor plan, hardwood timber floors, two fireplaces and four large bedrooms – the master overlooking the well-established garden. Multiple living areas both inside and out provide endless opportunities for family life, while the modern kitchen is the heart of the home.

Mayfield Mews – the original part was built in 1837, with a brick façade added in around 1870 – boasts two commercial spaces, with the nursery and café to the rear. The café and gift shop are offered on a fully equipped basis.

Southwell says there a number of ideal buyers for this unique find, such as: “a property investor looking for up to four incomes; city dweller looking for an escape to the country; families looking for options; someone looking to run the business and live next door; or an astute investor looking for a property which will have substantial capital growth”.

“Albury House and Mayfield Mews sit in the heart of the thriving village of Bowning, a stone’s throw off the freeway, only two minutes to the Hume Highway, 12 minutes to Yass and 50 minutes to the Nation’s Capital,” he said. 

“This is a multi-income affordable opportunity not to be missed. The owners desire a timely sale over achieving the maximum price due to a change in family and health circumstances.”
