‘Lauriston Park’ exudes class, charm and quality with a rich feel of early Australian architecture. One of the oldest homes in the district, circa 1853, the original part of the homestead is built in blue stone. It was later extended in timber in a traditional style, still in keeping with the Australian homestead feel. ‘Lauriston Park’ is beautifully sited on 40 acres, well away from roads, and with superb views of the Macedon Ranges and Hanging Rock. A formal English oak lined driveway leads to the front entry, and wonderfully landscaped gardens, including meticulously maintained cypress hedges, surround the home. Flowing lawns extend down to the tennis court, a productive vegetable garden and mature, well maintained orchard with a variety of fruit and nut trees - and a chicken coop.
The floorplan is flexible, with generous sized rooms that work very well for today’s modern style of living. There are nine main rooms, all with 11 foot ceilings, bluestone features and simply beautiful fixtures and fittings. The heart of the home is the superbly appointed kitchen, featuring an Aga, antique Baltic cabinetry and a vintage chandelier. The morning sun streams through the French doors and windows.
Lauriston Park is approximately 60 squares under roof including 42 squares of living, plus four squares of internal courtyard. There are four beautiful living areas, both formal and informal, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. A tower with stunning views across the district is currently used as a home office. An integrated double garage, electric heating and cooling plus a cellar complete the home.
Outside a large barn is used for storage of farm machinery and the workshop has a 10KW solar panel system on the roof. All water and irrigation needs are taken care of with a bore, a dam and town water connected. ‘Lauriston Park’ is located only minutes drive to the centre of Kyneton and the railway station with fast train to the CBD.
Lauriston Park is a wonderful example of classical early Australia which has been transformed into a beautiful home and property right on the edge of Kyneton.
