"Bloxham Hall" Murwillumbah's Grand Dame

Set in a quiet location of seclusion and privacy, this beautiful federation home is an iconic landmark in Murwillumbah.

Built, circa 1910, the stunning "Bloxham Hall" was constructed using the finest, locally sourced materials and features a standard of craftsmanship rarely seen today.

Originally owned and constructed by the proprietor of the local brick kiln, "Bloxham Hall" was entirely constructed with only the highest quality, locally made bricks.

This house includes many original features throughout. Some of the charming federation characteristics include solid red cedar doors, handcrafted cedar architraves and skirting boards, elegant French doors and original coloured glass, sash windows.

With four original fireplaces, three of them marble, and beautiful, 12-foot high pressed metal ceilings and hardwood, polished timber floors throughout, every period detail of "Bloxham Hall" has been lovingly maintained for more than a century.

Featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms and expansive balconies that wrap around the house, this elegant home is as welcoming as it is impressive. The scale of the rooms and the height of the ceilings combine to give an abundance of natural light, fresh breezes and an airy and uplifting ambience.

There is a separate dining room, a large living room as well as a much-loved contemporary sunroom. The sunroom flows seamlessly onto the expansive sun-drenched decks that overlook a large, sparkling saltwater pool, making it the ideal setting for entertaining.

Importantly, the house is located in a flood-free zone with its elevated position affording some of the best local views facing north towards Murwillumbah. Overlooking the magnificent Tweed River, the home is also blessed with its famously commanding sights of Mount Warning and Springbrook Mountain, surrounded by lush, green sugar cane fields.

Descend through an enchanting bamboo grove, to the deep-water river frontage that is ideal for fishing or for a floating jetty to moor your boat.

The home features air conditioning in two bedrooms for year-round comfort and high-quality fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and three bathrooms.

The expansive sun-drenched balconies also provide an idyllic alfresco living area, with the veranda entertaining areas capturing the fabulous views as well as the fresh summer breezes. The gardens also provide numerous hidden-away nooks that are ideal for a private place to relax, read a book or just soak up the views.

Sitting proudly on top of the hill, the elevated aspect of this property provides regular sightings of a range of birdlife; from osprey eagles, kites, to black cockatoos, kookaburras, kingfishers, lorikeets and the resident whip birds. The river views also provide the excitement of spotting the occasional jumping fish or the joy of witnessing the frolicking river dolphins at play.
