This enchanting property has had a long and interesting history which the current owner has been part of for over 60 years. Built around 1836 for Mr Joseph Crossley Firth, a weaver from Yorkshire, who arrived here from England in 1821. "Middlewood" is believed to be the third oldest residential property in the township of Kingston and this imposing property in its original condition was built as a grand 2 storey sandstone family home. The building suffered some structural damage during earth tremors which occurred in the Kingston area around 1921. Joseph Firth's grandson, Ken recalled cracks appearing on the upstairs levels of the home and as a result of the tremors it was deemed unsafe. Several years later in the early 1930's the top half was removed and restored to its present day single storey building.
Since then the property has had several changes and the current owner has extended the home at the side, plus adding a new roof. There is now a small studio and pottery shed at the back of the house plus a paved patio area and greenhouse. Unfortunately present years have not been kind to this beautiful old home and it is in need of a little T.L.C. Buyers will revel in the opportunity to restore and transform this remarkable premise to its former glory. Situated within walking distance to Channel Court Shopping Centre, bus route and schools, this historic gem is surrounded by just over three quarters of an acre (approx. 3270m2) of beautiful private landscaped gardens. The spring and summertime are a highlight throughout the gardens with an abundance of wonderful colours complimenting the 3 delightful English oak trees, believed to be over 150 years old. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed.
