A historic South Coast homestead which has had just three owners since it was built in the early 1900s is on the market.
'Mayfield Farm' is located at 168a Mayfield Road in the tiny suburb of Mayfield, near Nowra.
It has a price guide of $2.4 million to $2.6 million.
The homestead and five acres were originally part of a 200-acre land grant allocated in 1838, with the remainder still a dairy farm held by the same family for eight generations.
The early 1900s four-bedroom homestead has been extensively renovated while retaining original features such as decorative ceilings and cornices, solid timber doors, high skirting boards and two fireplaces.
The current owners, Mark and Linda Wallace bought the property a little more than three years ago.
Mr Wallace said they had been looking to buy a small acreage property in the Berry region when they came across Mayfield Farm.
"What attracted us to the property was the fact that it's a beautiful old home," he said.
"The tranquility and peacefulness here is wonderful, and sunrises and sunsets are amazing."
They have carried out extensive structural improvements and planted about 40 trees on the property, including a row of Bradford pears lining the driveway.
Although there are no heritage orders on the home, he told the Mercury it was a "home of local interest and significance".
The property was recently featured in Home Beautiful magazine.
"The home is in pretty much original condition, it's just been renovated with a modern kitchen, bathrooms and so on," Mr Wallace said.
"The family who built the home were dairy farmers, and they continued to work the farm up until retirement.
"They wanted to stay on the land, so they carved out five acres with a home on it, and sold off the remaining acres to a farmer in the area.
"Therefore, one of the great things about the property is you sit amongst a large dairy farm, so you actually feel like you are on a 200-acre dairy farm, but you've only got responsibility for five acres."
Mr Wallace said the property was ideal for entertaining, and had also been a venue for family weddings and gatherings.
Mr Wallace said they were selling the property due to family and work reasons.
"We have lots of wonderful memories and it's a beautiful spot - we love the property," he said.
Selling agent, Tim McGoldrick from Elders Real Estate Berry said that buyers frequently tell him that their dream home is a character house on five acres with peace and privacy.
"What they're describing is Mayfield Farm," he said.
"Properties like this are rare and the renovations, design and condition of the home are unmatched.
"It's an opportunity not to be missed."
