Pinevale – Historical Beauty Meets Modern Living
Bursting with character and history, and set on a picturesque 32 acres (approx.) of land is the stunning ‘Pinevale’. Located in Bagshot, just 20 minutes from both Bendigo’s CBD and the community of Elmore, this lovely home offers easy access to schools, supermarkets, public transport and more.
The main residence consists of two houses; restored, renovated and sitting neatly under a single roofline. The original house dates back to 1855 and one of the houses actually served as the original Robin Hood Hotel. Much of the historical character has been retained with interior details such as the original cellar, Lux stove, double Rayburn stove, open fireplaces, clawfoot bath, tiling, floorboards, cabinetry and more, sitting comfortably alongside modern conveniences adding extra country charm – such as two wood fuel heaters.
A wide verandah wraps around the bulk of the home, offering plenty of places to sit and enjoy views across the land. Entering through the front door, there are four good-sized bedrooms off the hallway – three with open fireplaces and the fourth with a built-in wardrobe. The master, at the front of the home, has a walk-in robe and a lovely ensuite, complete with heritage tiling and clawfoot bathtub.
Further down the hall is a large family room with doors opening out on to the verandah. A bathroom, followed by a large living and formal dining room, take you to the rear of the home. Off the living and dining space is the original kitchen, complete with woodfire stove, and a meals area. Adjoining this space is an additional, modern kitchen with excellent storage and an electric induction cooktop.
Outdoors, enjoy beautiful established gardens, al fresco areas and a four-car carport. The brick stable, buggy shed, milking shed and car garage are all original and in use – although not necessarily for their intended purpose! The garage is a fantastic space offering a concrete floor, power, workshop lighting and is both lockable and alarmed for security.
Water for the property can be accessed via the original well, along with tanks that accommodate 21,000 gallons of storage (approx.) and the 32 acre allotment also includes a large dam, timber stockyards and numerous paddocks containing good pasture stand with rye, phalaris, clover and cocksfoot. A large 4 kW solar electricity invertor grid feed-in system, new fencing and a Stock & Domestic bore with a desalination plant ensure that the property is completely set up for a new owner to hit the ground running.
This gorgeous property – once home to the well-known local families of both Reilly and Sharkey – is the chance for a buyer seeking history, beauty and a slice of rural life in an established community to really enjoy something special.
