VICTORIAN CHARM MEETS CONTEMPORARY LIVING
This absolutely charming weatherboard Victorian home is positioned on a large allotment 1,050m2 and is an easy walk to Bendigo’s CBD. The home was originally a stonemason’s business – known as ‘Northern Terrazo’ and during its long life, it’s also served as a shopfront selling butter and confectionary, a post office and a flower shop.
Now a stunning family home, it combines the ideal blend of contemporary practicality with historical character. With gorgeous heritage details such as 15ft timber-lined ceilings, generous proportions, picture railing, double-sash windows and detailed timber fretwork throughout, the property is full of personality. At the front of the home is a guest bedroom, which would also make a great office, along with the master bedroom that features a walk-through robe and a light and bright modern ensuite. Two further bedrooms, both with large built-in robes can be found at the rear of the home.
The main lounge room is at the heart of the property and this light-filled space offers an open brick fireplace along with generous French doors opening out to a paved patio at the side of the house overlooking a formal garden. This area also opens into the modern kitchen and dining room, featuring stone bench tops and ample storage, including a large double pantry.
At the rear of the property is a second living space adjoining the kid’s bedrooms; a large mudroom – that also neatly hides away laundry facilities (including ironing board, washing machine and hamper); and a family bathroom.
The back door opens out to a spacious and modern spotted gum rear deck under an angled roof overlooking the sizeable backyard, and a second outdoor area off the beautifully restored rear shed ensures the garden is perfect for entertaining. The Lee Adams-designed cottage garden is perfectly suited for the house, and the climate, and raised garden beds add to the country cottage feel. The garden is low maintenance with a fully automated irrigation system. The size of the block offers plenty of scope for future plans, including a swimming pool if desired. The beautiful outdoor living spaces are tucked behind a secure fence and a remote operated double carport.

Jarrah floating floors
Solid granite benchtops sourced from the old stonemason’s business

Ideal for entertaining, the home has a family-friendly layout and plenty of space inside and out. With character, charm, history, modern conveniences and a fantastic location, this property has it all.
