The Oaks Homestead
The ‘Oaks’ is an historic homestead dating from 1880’s located on State Highway 73, just West of Darfield. Our client purchased the property in a near-derelict state with the dream of creating a country Guest House.
The house has been repaired, partly rebuilt and added to with a new Dining/
Living Room replacing an ill-fitting 1930’s addition. Private living spaces
and a new Kitchen fi t-out are adapted within the existing downstairs. Guest
accommodation with new ensuites inserted into the roof space is provided
upstairs. The Oaks operates as a family home with guest accommodation and facilities for dinner parties. The house retains much of its original fabric and detail and character. The new additions and insertions complement, becoming ‘part of’ the existing.
