Bespoke finishes, timeless style and meticulous detailing have combined to create one Daylesford’s finest homes in the revered Wombat Hill precinct.
The spatial qualities of this refined Victorian home are readily apparent: traditional rooms with high ceilings, marble mantelpieces, and ‘black japan’ flooring have a fluid connection with the casual living area upstairs, carefully crafted by Hardwick Builders.
The harmonious blend of old and new is imbued in the 4 king size bedrooms; the master bedroom combines the rich tapestry of a bygone era with an exquisite marble tiled en-suite and huge walk-in robe, and 2 of the 3 rear bedrooms feature floor to ceiling windows and delightful garden aspects, with a central bathroom adding a luxe touch.
The home’s original format is brought into the present with a butlers’ kitchen downstairs and a lift and light-filled stairwell ascending to the dramatic, voluminous living area with a framed view of the manicured garden. European oak flooring, custom ‘Bouchon’ cabinetry and a centerpiece kitchen with 3 Neff self-cleaning ovens, 2 wine fridges and 2 Miele dishwashers, magnifies the contemporary mood of the rear where function and aesthetics combine.
The garden oasis is a kaleidoscope of colour punctuated with roses, tulips, irises and pomegranates to name a few, and raised beds full of vegetables and herbs, with established shade trees. A Neil Tait gazebo with feature stack stone walls, creates an intimate seating and BBQ area, with an inspiring shipping container conversion accommodating a fully integrated indoor/outdoor kitchen. Ancillary extras include a double garage with auto door access, hydronic heating, air conditioning and a host of other improvements too numerous to mention.
