Imagine the games of indoor cricket you could have here … keep dreaming

The alfresco area.

There is a whole lot of house on offer, but it’ll cost you at least $1.7 million to get your hands on the keys.

And you might need a few cleaners.

There's a lot of house going on here.

Positioned between Hill and Anson Streets north of the Orange CBD, the seven-bedroom house in Tinnock Place was listed for sale this week, and is said by the agents to have a “robust presence”.

Plans for the property show the 2070-square-metre suburban block has 596 square metres of building space.

A "robust presence".

According to the Commsec Home Size Report, the average free-standing house completed in 2020/21 in Australia was 229.3 square metres.

The listing spiel describes the Tinnock Place property as having "timeless character" and being “a stately home within a well-established estate” with “stunning views across the valley towards Mount Canobolas”.

“From the impressive valet, turn circle driveway and double-columned entrance, to the spacious rooms with comfortable furnishings, there is no doubt this property is something special,” says the listing agent.

Aside from the seven bedrooms and four bathrooms, there is a living room, dining room, lounge room, sunroom, sitting room, office and room listed on the plans simply as "room".

The kitchen.

The “internals” of the home are positioned as “huge yet cosy” and the kitchen - with its double pyrolytic oven - as “jaw dropping”.

The enclosed alfresco area, with an open fire and BBQ, is big enough for serious year-round entertaining and indoor cricket (mind the glass).

There is a security system, reverse cycle heating and cooling, and landscaped gardens with irrigation.

Two of the four bathrooms have been fully renovated.

Not sure what is happening here.

According to the property sold in 2011 for $860,000 and in 2012 for $920,000.
