A Real Estate Guide to The Bachelor 2015

Clifton Mansion – Home to The Bachelor 2015
The Bachelor 2015 hit the soundwaves (thanks Sandra) last night. “Bachelor 3.0” or as we at Infinity Property Agents can all collectively call him “Woodie” or for the select few minion lovers “Samantha” is being played by 34 year old Sam Wood, a true blue Tasmanian “Dude aka hipster” living in Melbourne.
The Third season of the Bachelor will once again see the spotlight turned to the magnificent 120+ year old Clifton mansion at #7 Woolwich Road, Hunters Hill for the second time. Not that the local residents are all too pleased about the string of black limo’s and film crews turning up each day.
The romantic setting of this sandstone residence in which the 19 contestants vie for the attention of Sam Wood is reportedly rented out to the network for $25,000 per week. Situated along a 5100 metre frontage of the Parramatta River the home also shares National trust heritage status. Owned by gynaecologist and obstetrician Dr Simon McCaffrey and his wife Felicity, the home was built back in the 1890’s by former Stock Exchange Chairman John Ryder Jones and previous owners include the Grace Bros Retail family. The home features a swimming pool, tennis court, boathouse, arts studio and basement garage for 10 cars.
This stunning residence offers plenty of room for “Woodie” and his mate Osher Gü (we prefer “Andrew G” but each to their own) to romp around in their Sunday best whilst enjoying the company of the highly offensive school teacher Sandra, the Anal gland loving vet Laura or his white rose choice Heather and the 16, make that 14 other female companions.
Regardless of your choice, we’ll keep you up to date with the latest romps at Clifton Mansion and it’s provincial décor.
