Rich slices of history retain their value, as does this Dorrigo country estate . It is a rare and precious commodity.

“Jerome Park” is arguably one of the most distinctive and well restored residences in the area. It is 135 acres of prime pasture land and accommodates 50 cows and calves and will fatten 100 steers annually. The original bales, small dairy and the quintessential Australian “dunny” remain and are in excellent condition. The views over lush hillsides to the mountains and across to the escarpment and Dorrigo in the distance are simply stunning.

The charming, 100 year old garden is another attraction. The property is well fenced with tallow wood and stainless steel fences and has bore, dam and tank water. The power is also connected.

This is a beautifully restored weatherboard residence of 3 bedrooms that translates exquisitely to today’s needs; it is recognised as being one of the first settled in Dorrigo and boasts such past guests as the State Governor and relatives of Sir Winston Churchill!

From its 2.5 metre tallow wood verandas, 12 foot ceilings, rosewood and other hard woods used internally for flooring and cupboarding, to the bathroom’s tessellated floor tiles and antique claw bath – it is immaculate. Did we mention the rosewood and brass power switches, the guest toilet and powder room, the large wood combustion fire in the spacious living room and French doors to the verandas from all rooms? The “Smeg” and baltic pine kitchen with roomy pantry is a cook’s dream.
