Every home is unique in it’s own way and we all make changes to add character and make it our own, this property however is truly something special and genuinely irreplaceable throughout. This is one of those you need to see, because you will surely be sorry if you miss it!
To begin with it is set on 5 acres of native bushland in a Rural Conservation Zone to ensure it is alive with native flora and fauna. So naturally the ideal home to nestle into this setting is exactly what you will find here; a gentle giant of a mud-brick home, sympathetic to her surroundings, inviting and packed to the rafters with bespoken rustic features.
You enter upon a swirling paved porch with posts still bearing their natural form. As you step into the home you can tell already what a gem you have found being greeted by rugged red-gum slabs as lintels overhead and a wonderful open plan space taking in the lounge dining and loft room with soaring timber cathedral ceilings, stained glass, a gorgeous central open fire place and the most beautiful polished crazy paved blue-stone floor I’ve ever had the pleasure to see.
The main bedroom is huge and features a his-and-hers walk-in-robe and direct access to an under stairs storage area. An amazing staircase with roughshod railing leads up to the loft room which I would want to claim as my own bedroom / sitting room. This sits atop a third bedroom and at the far end of the home is an expansive space which could be a second living area, a wonderful teenagers retreat or fourth bedroom within the home.
The bathroom services these rooms in all her glory with glowing jade coloured tiles, a huge round bathtub, the likes of which I’ve never seen and a truly bespoken washbasin of hammered copper set into a slab of timber and perched upon a beautiful stump which looks to be from the same tree.
The kitchen is probably the room which needs the most attention and could benefit greatly from new cabinetry and bench-tops, though it certainly has some wonderful aspects you would want to salvage like her copper range-hood.
On top of all this there is also a bungalow behind the home with almost as much to talk about as the home itself, but I should leave that for you to come and discover.
Other notable attributes are solar hot water, a large dam, though it is dry at the moment, and 20,000 gallons of rain water storage tanks. We should not overlook the fact that this serene abode is seriously convenient being only 15 minutes from the heart of the major regional city of Bendigo offering a wide variety of services, a wonderful cafe culture and a diverse shopping and arts precinct.
This is not one you should wait on, you can consider this your personal invitation to come along to the open to inspect, or if that is not convenient the agent would love to hear from you to arrange a private inspection. Just don’t miss out.
