Cintra House | Historic, iconic and grand
Reach out and grasp this unique opportunity to own an icon of Australian historic importance. Pass through gilded entrance gates as you approach the home via the circular driveway. Cintra House, a heritage-listed residence originally constructed in 1879 is a glorious example of boom-era Italianate architecture. For those who are passionate about history and preservation, Cintra House is considered rare in terms of its intactness.
Revel in the property’s size and beauty, and daydream of days gone by. Equipped with a cellar, a smoking room and a billiard room, this is a home that was designed for New South Wales gentry, with plenty of scope for entertaining.
Boasting thirty rooms (including 10 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms), ornate balconies, high ceilings, open fireplaces and cooling verandas, it offers the kind of grandeur one would expect from a building of its time. Brimming with yesteryear architectural features and décor accents, Cintra House presents an imposing and elegant sandstone exterior with a three-story tower, complemented by wrought iron lacework.
Sitting on a generous 5501m² parcel of land, the home’s footprint comprises almost one fifth, at 965m². Both the home and architecturally designed heritage gardens have been maintained to a high standard to conserve the property’s authenticity and standing in New South Wales history.
Almost all of the original outbuildings remain, including, at the rear of the property, the original two-story stables and coach house, complete with stone flagged floor and hand-pump well. Interestingly, rumour has it that the two-time Melbourne Cup winner Peter Pan was stabled there on his way to The Cup. Upon renovation, the stables would make ideal separate accommodation to attract additional revenue.
Cintra House is located in Maitland in the beautiful Hunter Valley, about half an hour’s drive north-west of Newcastle and is surrounded by a wealth of historic attractions including Maitland Town Hall, the Grand Junction Hotel, Maitland Gaol and the courthouse. The town is serviced by Maitland Airport, Maitland Private Hospital, twenty primary schools and seven high schools and boasts a strong sporting community. Boutique and mainstream retail outlets abound.
