Believed to have been built circa 1911, the 'New Gisborne Post & Telegraph Office' is noted as a property of local significance - representatively, aesthetically and socially.
With a deep and extensive history and no doubt many stories to tell, the building evolved over time from a post office to then embrace the addition of a shopfront approximately 1969.
The addition of the shop front was removed some 11 years ago, and the frontage of the immaculate home has been restored to embrace its original character and charm.
The original post office box remains on the nature strip, as a subtle reminder of the building's original purpose. A delightful traditional white picket fence now frames this magical Victorian styled home.
Those with a keen eye will note fine details included in the modest yet striking build, once highly unusual in such a 'functional' building, yet preserved today.
This magical home has been truly loved by the current owners of 39 years, and you can feel the warmth of its embrace as you enter the property. Indeed our photos are beautiful, but they simply don't do this stunning home justice.
Immediately evident from the striking entrance, the sense of homely grandeur carries throughout the original part of the residence.
The stately central hallway includes a feature arch, 12ft ceilings, and feeds to 3 bedrooms, huge study (readily usable as a 4th bedroom), spacious bathroom and separate lounge. Year round comfort is ensured thanks to multiple split systems scattered throughout the home.
The kitchen and living / dining area is part of a light filled update to the residence, and is located to the rear, perfect to soak in the magical manicured gardens.
Plantings include a multitude of roses, lavender, hydrangeas, established trees, and lush fruits including tomatoes and berries. There is also an enclosed carport, greenhouse, large garden shed, and delightful spaces to ponder the day away.
Set in a highly prominent location, on beautiful leafy Station Road. The Baringo Food & Wine store, schools, parks and the train station are only a stone's throw away - with the thriving Gisborne township only a few moments drive away.
You simply must inspect this property to feel what is on offer here.
