Joyce Farm House

A little while ago a friend and I took advantage of an open for inspection to have a look around Joyce Farm House in Baulkham Hills, NSW. 

By the end of our sticky beak I had visualised where the kids would sleep and was wondering what the local school would be like. It was so lovely, in every which way. Except - and it was capital letters except - for the noise from Old Windsor Rd and the M7.

The rooms were large with gorgeous outlooks from every window and fireplaces. I was picturing Mr3 playing with his cars in the hallways. Beautiful floorboards, outside areas and the kitchen was so sweet with windows looking out onto the rear yard. The garden was delightful and with wide verandahs and covered areas there was plenty of places to watch the kids ride around the circular driveway or swinging in the Jacarandas. 

It has inspired me to revisit all the Historic Homes I visited as a student around Sydney but with eyes that appreciate them for the part they play in our history. 

Joyce Farm House sold for $856 000.
