You will be hard-pressed to experience a more moving combination of old-world grace, beauty, elegance and style, wonderfully combined with elegant modern comforts than this exquisite property. The original section of the home was architecturally designed by the renowned Robin Boyd as part of his ‘Small Homes Service’, circa 1960. Now a seamlessly integrated mix of Art Deco features and modern design architecture. The huge north facing picture windows framing views over the garden and surrounding countryside will leave you breathless.
Experience how these 4 bedrooms (main with ensuite) and spacious living area with bifolds flowing to an outdoor entertaining deck will make this an ideal slice of heaven for a family home, as a weekender or, as it is currently used, as luxury accommodation to share with others. The possibilities are so exciting!
Adjacent to the main living quarters of the home is the added bonus of a single-room cottage, built from handmade red bricks using clay found on the property. This gorgeous addition would be ideal as a home office or teenagers’ retreat.
A little further down the path you will find the original, rustic, red brick barn, also constructed from the same, handmade bricks. Through from the original stables at the entrance, you’ll find an area perfect for long lunches or dinner parties with that unique, country feel, complete with kitchenette, bathroom and wood fire, making it self-contained, cosy and relaxed.
With the property & outbuildings dating back to the 1800s, and the 20th Century home lovingly restored, renovated & extended, this inviting piece of history is set on 7.5 acres and is just a stone’s throw from some of Victoria’s most historical and scenic towns, including Daylesford & Hepburn Springs, Maldon, Kyneton and Woodend.
