Originally built in 1897, the property is a historic gem in the Paris end of Lancefield. About 20 years ago our vendors spotted a rundown Victorian house that had plenty of potential. Painstakingly they have transformed “Netherby” into a much-loved charming Victorian classic.
The home and property is just immaculate with many original features; stained/etched glass doors, high ceilings, marble fire surround, and polished baltic floorboards. 3 spacious bedrooms with ducted heating, 4th bedroom or family room, stone kitchen benchtops with a large stove and plenty of cupboards. The open plan living area comprises dining and lounge with wood heater and spilt system which open off the kitchen. Excellent bathroom and laundry complete the interior.
The property is beautifully established with brick paved paths and driveway, old trees and at the rear a special rotunda ideal for entertaining. The property also has a cascading water feature, chook palace, vegie garden, 10,000 litres of tank water and even a rock-climbing wall. The garage and workshop have plenty of storage space which could be converted to an ideal studio. It is a short walk to the sports park, shops and schools, plus the very good Lancefield Farmers Market. “Netherby” is truly a re-creation of yesteryear lovingly restored by a craftsman right from the heart.
