Set in the peaceful landscape at Woodvale, 'Booth House' is one of the few remaining original homesteads in this district.
Built by Percival Booth in 1898, the four front rooms of the original house are constructed of Victorian-style double red brick.
In 2002 the current owner expanded the main living area, constructing a new kitchen, dining area, large bathroom (with spa) and laundry.
Connecting the old with the new is a gallery, which serves as an entertainment area or just somewhere to relax. This room has exposed beams, atrium-style ceiling, sandstone floor and a wood fire.
The kitchen features Baltic pine cabinets with deep drawers and solid Merbau worktops.
In the breakfast nook, a bay window overlooks the garden, barn and pottery studio. The dining area has French doors and a view of the fernery.
Booth House is set on about four hectares (10 acres) of land with nearby Whipstick State Forest. The property has a large dam, ample rainwater storage, sundry shedding, original barn and large brick outbuilding which is used as a pottery studio.
The versatility of this property provides many options for a tradesperson or someone employed at home or creative industry.
Booth House was shortlisted in the 2012 Bendigo Heritage Awards in the category of Additions to a Heritage Place.
“This is a rare opportunity to secure a unique and versatile lifestyle property, as well as a piece of Bendigo history,” licenced estate agent Matt Leonard said.
