As soon as you enter the huge gates with old-style coach lamp posts, the pressure of everyday life drifts away.

This landmark began in 1881, as a school and accompanying School Masters Cottage, that has, over its lifetime, been lovingly and carefully modified to maintain the history, story and heart of the original architecture.

An immediate emotional connection to the past, the focal point of the property showcases soaring bespoke cathedral ceilings, rustic recycled timber floors, old school doors with brass handles, iconic chandelier pendants and antique fireplaces.

You will be immediately hypnotised by the luxuriously grand scale architecture of this residence.

The original schoolhouse has been meticulously maintained and converted to a private living zone with old school picture windows and cathedral ceilings, giving a feeling that time has stood still.

The School Masters Cottage evokes warmth and character delivering three large scale bedrooms, a Cheminees Philippe fireplace, exposed brick walls and white panel windows.

This one-of-a-kind, heritage-listed property is so much more than an architectural treasure of yesteryear. With deep water river frontage, the lifestyle this presents is incredible.

There is also wide side access, a boat ramp with powered winch, and a jet ski dock. Everything you need to enjoy all that the beautiful Hastings River has to offer.

If you have an appreciation for uniqueness, historical importance, character and charm, be prepared to fall in love with this iconic art form that is "Rawdon Island Schoolhouse and Masters Cottage".
