'Grange Mount' c.1915 – A Slice of Newcastle's History
Your chance to own a slice of Newcastle's rich history presents itself with the purchase of stunning 'Grange Mount,' a Federation style home built in 1915 by the Rundle family of the Rundle's Tailoring institution. Positioned on a north facing 1,088sqm corner block, stunning original features steal the show including stained glass windows, return verandahs, tessellated tiles, 11ft ornate ceilings, ornamental fireplaces, hardwood floors and fretwork.

Inside, a seamless fusion of period elegance and contemporary appeal rings true to the home's architectural pedigree with a striking new kitchen, two renovated bathrooms, and a choice of formal and casual living and dining areas kept comfortable with ducted air-conditioning and a winter gas fire. Four bedroom accommodation makes Grange Mount a superb home for a growing family. Surrounded by sun-drenched leafy gardens featuring fruit trees and ornamental plants including a 100-year-old Canary island palm, the large corner block is enclosed by an ornate brickwork fence built during the depression under a government program to employ out of work brick layers.

Boasting a history that's a rich as its period ornament, Grange Mount was purchased by BHP who used the residence to house its managers over the years, until it was privately purchased in 1969. It has only been offered for sale once in the last 53 years. Here's the chance to make it yours!
