Textural rich and beautifully presented, this two-story country home perfectly blends heritage features with modern comforts.
The story of this home must begin in the kitchen, for its here where the unique Aga oven rests. Run on natural gas, the sought-after piece boasts four ovens and two cook plates. The wide 12-inch floorboards and antique Kauri floors are a conversation starter, as is the internal wall hand baked recycled bricks from the 1800s. Jarrah benchtop, butlers pantry, integrated dishwasher and French door access to a covered deck to complete the meals area. Warmed by a Benjamin Franklin inspired open fire, the generous open plan lounge includes an adjustable Oregon bookcase. Large families will love the versatility of the large entry room, whilst an office-come-boot room has infinite options.
With new ducted heating/cooling, upstairs is comfortable year-round. There are four bedrooms three with built-in robes, the fourth a gorgeous skylit A-frame. Both upstairs (floor-heated) bathrooms showcase Jarrah vanities, and you simply cant go past a clawfoot bath.
Built by renowned National Trust of Victorias head contractor Tam Peirce in 2008 (think Rippon Lea and Como House), the detail in this home is exquisite - hydronic underfloor heating, Travertine stone bathrooms, handmade Fireclay sinks, reconditioned Redgum from Station Pier, double glazed windows, loft storage, the list goes on. The property (approx. 2381m) is a delightful mix of landscaped gardens, established natives, scattered fruit trees (plum, pear, cherry, currants, Meyer lemon), vegie patch and lawn. Flip between town or rainwater at your leisure and make use of the reticulated watering system. A large new shed with woodfire heater is excellent for machinery, studio or home office.
Location wise, you cant get more central. Genuinely a moments walk to Macedon and all it offers V/Line, schools, supermarket, restaurants and post office. Enjoy the village life in a home worthy of the city.
