Set on approximately 1,531m2 of land and nestled into nature reserves on two sides complete with flowing creek and swimming hole, it’s a slice of utopia unlike any other. This wonderful Gothic masterpiece has been lovingly built by a local master craftsman and builder and features soaring 40 foot ceilings, intricate carved woodwork, stained glass windows and an amazing mezzanine level master bedroom complete with ensuite and a Juliet balcony over looking the church interior. There are plans for the addition of a further two bedrooms for those requiring a three bedroom home. A rustic detached barn serves as a double garage and with a loft above provides space for a studio, work shop or storage. This home is a masterpiece, not just in terms of its quality craftsmanship but also in the structure’s reflection of an era of bold, confronting architecture. Soaring ceilings framed by rows of arched windows, skylights, rich timber floors throughout complemented by the edginess of slate tiles, stained glass windows and antique fittings dating back more than a century set the scene for something special. The surroundings are equally as enchanting with rustic gardens, quiet courtyards and a babbling stream.

FEATURES AT A GLANCE


WORDS THAT DESCRIBE THIS PROPERTY

Unique Breathtaking

Medieval

13 SAVOY STREET, PORT MACQUARIE

Serene

Wow Private

FEATURES AT A GLANCE Building commenced approximately 15 years ago as a reproduction of a Gothic church from Medieval England. Featuring a mix of clinker brick with unraked “slagging” mortar, soaring 40 foot ceilings with metal clad roofing and timber lined walls and floors. The property requires some fine tuning work to finish it and to really showcase its design. There is a mix of stained glass windows and lead light windows and doors throughout the building with two beautifully crafted Dorma windows to the mezzanine level. There is a double sided open fire place and slow combustion stove to the kitchen and modern amenities such as electricity, town water and town sewer are all connected. Most antiques on display are not included, but the owner is prepared to sell selected antique pieces and collectables giving the successful buyer first option. The name “Hihurstwood” on the eastern wall goes with the property. There is an area in Sussex England known as High Hurstwood. The owner found the sign in an antique store and thought the name was fitting for a building emphasising

the high ceilings and the extensive use of wood. WHY ARE THEY MOVING? The current owners are looking to down size to a smaller property but want to stay in the area. WHAT THEY LOVE ABOUT THE PROPERTY (FROM THE OWNER) • No matter where I sit I never tire of looking at the church. There are so many interesting angles and areas of light and shade • The lucky owner will inherit not only a unique property, but the property will identify them as a one of a kind property owner • This property will intrigue the new owner and all who visit “Hihurstwood” ITEM LOCATIONS • Hotwater system - Laundry • Telephone ports - Kitchen • Open Fire in Kitchen & Lounge NEIGHBOURS The property is bordered by reserve on two sides and set in a cul-de-sac with really no neighbours

PURCHASING STEPS 6 STEPS TO BUYING A HOUSE Purchasing residential real estate can be a very exciting process, however it can also be a confusing time for the prospective buyer. As you may already be aware, different agencies usually have different sets of rules and standards, so we would like to inform you of the general buying process. Property owners receive all types of interest - some genuine, some not. Some people submit offers to test the possibility of sale, but do not actually stay true with their offer. This can lead to frustration and concern for the owners as they try to assess who is actually a genuine buyer. The best way to present a strong offer on any property is to follow the steps below that allow you to understand what is required in preparation to put forward your strongest purchasing proposition to the agent. All offers must be presented to the owner in writing and all purchase details correct for filling in the contract for signing. STEP 1 - PROVIDE AGENT WITH YOUR FULL DETAILS SUCH AS • Full names of all parties that will appear on the contract • The actual purchase price you will be paying for the property. • The method by which you choose to pay the 10% deposit. eg. cheque/bond/other. • The settlement period that you require or the vendor has stipulated. • The name of your chosen Solicitor or Conveyancer. • The name of your bank or financial lending institution. • Any special conditions or requests that you may have so that we can inform the vendor (property owner) STEP 2 - CONFIRM YOUR TIME FRAME AVAILABLE TO DO ANY INVESTIGATIONS Find out if the property has a deadline on it, such as auction or other offers from interested parties. STEP 3 - DECIDE IF YOU ARE GOING TO OBTAIN A PEST & BUILDING INSPECTION Before you purchase any property - in particular a new home - it is important that you commission a copy of a Pest and Building Report from qualified inspectors. Please note that

this report is a complete list of defects of the home, and is very different from the feature brochure that you receive from our agency. Many people can be shocked with the report they receive on the home, and most times misinterpret the report, e.g. the home is 34 years old and is in need of new roof tiles. Roof tiles last approximately 35 years and need replacing on every home of that age. The point to remember here is that all homes at one time or another require maintenance, and that this is known as a capital improvement. The main aim should be to ascertain that the property is structurally sound and free from pests such as termites. STEP 4 - NOTIFY YOUR BANK OF YOUR PURCHASE ADDRESS & DETAILS A pre-approval of finance from your bank or lending institution needs to be in place before safely proceeding with your property purchase, however many banks will approve you in principle yet may require a valuation. Don’t be alarmed if your bank or lending institution request a valuation by a registered property valuer. This is normal practice of lending institutions, and serves as confirmation of the agreed sale price. If you are intending to buy at auction, all the above-mentioned must be in place. Auction day is final. If you turn up to bid and you are the highest bidder past the reserve price (on-the-market price) you are the instant owner awaiting settlement of the property. STEP 5 - DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE STAMP DUTY FUNDS IN YOUR FINAL CALCULATIONS A stamp duty chart is available from our office or our website STEP 6 - MEET WITH THE AGENT AND PROVIDE ALL DETAILS FOR SIGN OFF WITH THE OWNER Once agreement on price, settlement, conditions, etc has been reached with the vendor the sale can proceed. An exchange of contracts is the only way to actually buy or sell real estate. This is achieved by signing the contract of sale which is then processed by the agent with all legal parties. Your agent can explain the two options for exchanging contracts (Securing the sale) IN SUMMARY Preparation is the key. Understand the steps of sale and have everything in place is imperative to reaching your property goals. Whether you are considering purchasing this property or another in the near future and in need of advice, please feel free to contact Rex, Jason or any of our team with questions that you may have. We are available to assist you 7 days.
