This beautiful character home has many stories to tell and this is one I would like to share.

In 1988 the current owner was on the front verandah when she was approached by an elderly lady and her grandson. Her name was Adie Teale. This was the home where she was born prior to the Great War.

She said her father came to Australia from Scotland with his three brothers and they purchased neighbouring land in Tivoli so they could remain close together. As each brother became engaged a house would be built for the soon to be married couples.

So finally the youngest of the four became engaged but before construction could begin they had to serve their country in the Great War. Sadly, only three of the four brothers returned. It was the youngest who never made it home. The family remained in the area for a number of years until the 1920’s and the land was left vacant during that time in memory of the brother that was lost. Despite changes in ownership so it remains to this day providing a peaceful haven from the every day.

Now, this beautiful home rich in history, character and charm is being offered for sale for the first time in over 30 years.
