Forbes’s finest stately homestead known as “Mercedes House” will be offered for sale by auction on the 4th October by Landmark Harcourts agent, Ainslie Toole. This is likely to set a new record for the district.
“Mercedes House” is sure to impress with its generous dimensions, elegant appointments and stunning capacity to entertain. It is ideally situated with just a short stroll to the CBD, lake, pools, schools, cafes and hotels. It features 11 bedrooms in total. The grand central entrance hallway has retained original porcelain tiles and chandeliers that leads onto four luxurious double bedrooms that each open out to expansive verandahs.
Discerning travellers can also enjoy the comforts of a self-contained apartment on the lower level. With six bedrooms upstairs and the third bathroom plus a kitchenette, there is plenty of room for a family/extra accommodation for the business to expand.
Multiple entertaining areas include a formal dining and living room plus another living/dining room in both the upstairs level and in the apartment with an open plan modern kitchen/dining nook available for guests. There is also an attractive covered entertaining area by the pool with many spots to relax and enjoy the gardens.
In 1984 “Mercedes House” was purchased by the current owners, Michael and Denise Jelbart. It was an exceptional private residence for their family and in recent years since they became empty nesters they decided to operate it as a Bed & Breakfast business which is thriving.
The owners have made friends from all around the world through exceptional repeat business and have said that it has been a privilege to have owned and lived in “Mercedes House” for 34 years.
They are selling to retire and travel.
