Huntingfield House was constructed by James Bayton sometime in the 1830’s or 1840’s (exact time cannot be confirmed). Bayton was one of the earliest landowners and farmers in the Kingston area and was granted his land shortly after arriving in the colony in 1822.
The attraction begins with the typical Georgian symmetrical structure, exposed stone walls, medium pitched hip roof, sash windows with small panes, stone lintels and sills and stone chimneys. The home is two storeyed at the front and three storeyed at the rear.
On the ground floor an array of living spaces is on offer including an amazing lounge room with stone flooring and walls. The centrepiece of this space is the Cheminees Philippe (fireplace). Located just off this incredible room is a private space, perfect for an extensive wine cellar. This space offers incredible insulation qualities. A large kitchen is situated just off the lounge area and includes extensive cabinetry. A gorgeous French door opens out into an enclosed courtyard, basking in natural light. A formal dining room is on this level and is the quintessential space for entertaining to showcase the heritage of this home. Across levels two and three are multiple bedrooms, a library, additional living rooms, a study/nursery and spacious bathroom. On the ground and first floors the windows are adjourned with detailed timber shutters and all windows throughout the home offer every changing views. As if this wasn’t impressive enough, a huge attic space with incredible natural light is the final touch to the living area. This room encompasses the entire length and breadth of the home.
