'Fernleigh' a part of history

In the heart of the ever popular, historic village of Ross, this substantial sandstone residence still retains the character and style of its era but offers all the creature comforts of the modern age. The original property was purchased by Christopher Hall in 1846 for the princely sum of 23 pounds. During its long history, the home has been used at various times as a post office, a doctors surgery, a private residence and in the 1890's a girls school known as 'Fernleigh'. Christopher Hall served the Ross township as postmaster, school master and parish clerk until his death in 1864. He is buried in the local cemetary. The house has been extensively upgraded in 2012, the work has included, new roof, wiring, plumbing, kitchen and a complete internal refurbishment. As well as the care put into the main house the historic stables have been rebuilt to a high standard to provide unique guest accommodation. The heritage listed home is on 3/4 acre and sits comfortable in the wide elm lined street of the main tourism area. The expansive sandstone structure is currently operating as 'Christopher Halls Colonial Accommodation' and offers high quality holiday accommodation, showing excellent financial returns. It could however be a very generous family home with up to 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 4 living areas. Which ever way you look at it, this is indeed a rare opportunity to purchase a unique property in an established tourism hub/historic village.
