HAYWARD........ Circa 1908
Situated in the picturesque Manning Valley, Hayward is a beautiful Federation Bungalow style residence. Based upon the structural features and building materials discussed below, the house is a very rare example of this construction type and style.
Set on 40 acres highly productive lower river grazing country with 400 metres of Manning River frontage, Hayward is an iconic house on the entry road to Croki. Indeed, the house and the magnificent fig tree (Ficus macrophylla) are well known landmarks on Jones Island. It feels like you are stepping back in time when you walk through this charming house of significant historic value.
Improvements include 4 bay machinery shed, bails, reticulated town water supply to 8 troughs and fencing.
The bullnose verandahs on all four sides, are representative of the vernacular design of the period (circa 1900). This provides the ability to enjoy the best ambient conditions through out the day. All rooms are spacious and bright and the 3.2m ceilings contribute to the grandeur of the residence. Considering its age it is in excellent condition and has required very little maintenance over the years. Such qualities make this home a candidate for easy maintenance and preservation well into the future.
The floors, walls, ceilings and roof are constructed entirely of timber. The only masonry is a central dual fireplace and the previous kitchen stove. The decorative timber moulding of the doors, windows and dado were made from Australian Red Timber (Toona ciliata). Other timbers include mahogany and hardwoods. The original shimmering glass windows are enchanting.
