Mair Street can be declared one of Kyneton’s very best. Not just for its inner town local, oh so close to neighbourhood heroes, Monsieur Pierre and Watts Fresh, but for its pretty and intimate street scape of proud period homes. Number 15, a beautiful Californian Bungalow full of hidden offerings and with established gardens, is destined to sweep you off your feet.
A picket fence, manicured front yard, wide verandah and double leadlight doors is the picture-perfect introduction.
Step inside to experience that longed-for sense of period homeliness with every wished-for original feature preserved. Consider, highly decorative cornice and ceiling roses, decorative fireplaces, stunning art deco light fittings and polished timber floorboards.
Within the main residence there are 4 bedrooms, all in authentic proportions and some with robes. A professional and sympathetic restoration of the second half of the home provides ample space and desirable amenities for contemporary living.
The classically styled kitchen features stone surfaces, generous pot drawers, a 900mm electric oven with a gas cooktop and a social breakfast bar. Also in neutral tones, the central bathroom with white subway tiles has a bath and shower. A mud room, weatherboard clad outdoor laundry and second toilet also cater for family living.
The home then opens at the rear to the light filled living and dining area that then spills out onto the decked alfresco. Boasting inbuilt bench seating, dappled shade and leafy surrounds, this will be a favourite spot these coming months.
Outside the main residence you’ll also find a small weatherboard workshop with built-in workbench and a potting shed for raising seedlings during the cooler months, before transferring them into raised vegie garden beds.
A private and discrete unit is also part of the offerings here. Cleverly incorporated so as not to distract from the home’s classic façade, it is fully self-contained and emulates the main residence’s period style. A quaint kitchen, bathroom with a bath, a robed bedroom, a lounge room, and a private courtyard with built in outdoor table and seating, providing numerous options. In this stellar location, it also gives off excellent Air B&B or long-term rental vibes.
A walk through the rear garden is just as delightful with neat hedging creating garden rooms, a fragrant Japanese Lilac in full bloom and there are shady lawn spots for play and relaxation. Big, old Elms on the other side of the high fence help place the home in one of Kyneton’s favourite, leafy streets.
