Here’s your chance to buy into Bangalow’s history! Clover Hill House is a gracious weatherboard home, built in the early 1920’s in the ‘Art Nouveau’ style. The grand home was built for W H Rankin, one of the Pioneer settlers in the district, by local builder A E Beckinsale. The dairy farming land had previously been owned by some other familiar names including William Barby and T Robinson. The elegant home features 12ft ceilings with beautiful plaster ceiling roses, double-hung timber sash and bay windows and French doors throughout. In its original build it had open verandahs on three sides however, these have been enclosed, increasing the internal floor plan dramatically. The room sizes are extremely generous with formal living and dining areas at the front of the home. There are multiple bedrooms and an area at the rear of the home that was used as a self-contained granny flat. This property would be lovely as a family home or perfect as a bed and breakfast establishment/guesthouse.

Once presiding over the entire Clover Hill, the surrounding land was sub-divided to form the Clover Hill estate, leaving the home on a generous 2379sqm allotment. There is a reserve to the front of the home which allows views all the way up the main street of Bangalow and beyond to the rolling hills Bangalow is famous for.

Clover Hill House was owned by the late Alice Holm who lived in the home for over 40 years up until her 95th year. Alice was well known and loved in Bangalow and in her more active years, she loved walking into the village and would chat with her new neighbours along the way. Alice was very generous and loved gardening and shared cuttings from her own garden with many of her neighbours in Clover Hill.

This elegant home is just waiting for a new owner to return the home to its former glory.
