This stunning property sets a new benchmark for living in Bendigo. The celebration of charming period features successfully blended with a bold contemporary extension is discreetly tucked away behind a leafy hedge and private entrance.
It's a dream home for anyone looking to reside moments from the Bendigo CBD, the arts precinct, multiple schools, sporting options and easy access to both hospitals.
The circa 1912 solid brick and roughcast home displays a unique facade with exposed rafter ends under timber lined eaves, banks of leadlight casement windows and stone steps to two front porches.
A welcoming grand entry foyer opens to a large front room currently used for formal dining but equally suited to a lounge or large home office. It boasts high ceilings, chandelier lighting, polished timber floors, an open fireplace and French doors to the arched front porch.
Next are two spacious bedrooms ideal for guests or extended family with built-in-robes and original hand basins. Serviced by the first bathroom resplendent with Carrara marble tiling, claw foot bath, twin hand basins & oversized in situ shower. A second full marble bathroom sits further down the hall, while the large laundry incorporates a walk-in linen store, plenty of bench space and direct outside access.
The show stopper of the home is where the old and new intersect. The stunning lounge room features a marble fireplace, high coffered ceiling and a large box bay picture window with beautiful-yet-simple square leadlight glazing filtering the light and offering expansive city skyline views. Step into the modern extension where it's all about today's lifestyle with extensive light-filled open areas for living and entertaining.
Bespoke cabinetry and an extensive stone-topped L shaped island with waterfall edges meet a suite of Miele appliances in the impressive kitchen; culinary connoisseurs will delight in this opulent space with a walk-in pantry.
The adjoining dining and living spaces create ample gathering spots for entertaining family and friends while stacking glass doors provide a fluid connection to an elevated alfresco. It overlooks jaw-dropping granite paved outdoor living/entertaining areas incorporating a fabulous 2½ metre long rendered brick open fireplace, natural gas BBQ, built-in fridges and a 10x4m gas-heated, self-cleaning pool with swim-up bar.
The resort influenced master bedroom suite found at the end of an elevated glass-walled walkway includes two WIR and a luxe ensuite featuring a stone-topped vanity, large shower, freestanding bath and access to a private balcony. While the vast 4-metre bedroom window frames the unbeatable city views.
Three more bedrooms with similar "view-tiful" outlooks share the 3rd level along with a well-appointed main bathroom beautifully finished to match the ensuite.
Every inch of the approx 1113m² lot has been beautifully landscaped and includes a secluded courtyard, garden/tool shed and rear access remote entry double garage.
Spectacular in every way and enviably positioned in one of Bendigo's most sought after inner-city streets. The entire property is elegant, sophisticated and timeless in design.
Put simply – it’s the best!
