Opportunities to own a home like this are few and far between. Here on offer is one of the finest properties in Trentham. Set on the largest parcel of land in the centre of town, 1.4 hectares (3.46 acres) of enchanting gardens that surround a historic home. Such an envious location, positioned within minutes to the shops, cafés, and restaurants, yet also backing onto the Domino Trail which lends itself to beautiful bushwalks and bike rides all the way to Lyonville. It really is the best of both worlds, the peace and privacy of country living yet all the perks of being in the heart of a vibrant township.
The grounds consist of many impressive pockets of established trees. At the rear of the property century old eucalypts inspire awe as they stand beside an arboretum bordered by a colosseum of Radiata Pines. Other impressive species include the rare Tasmanian King Billy Pine, and an ancient Douglas Fir whose magnificence can only be rivalled by the gigantic Rhododendron when in full bloom.
The home was built circa 1915, for the chief forester’s residence, later becoming the Trentham Forestry Office and Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands. Full of character, the house displays original hallmarks such as open fireplaces, polished floorboards, and panelled doors. The living area welcomes the morning sun through a row of double-glazed windows that draw the garden view inside. From here the open kitchen forms the hub of the home integrating the living zones with ease and efficiency. The kitchen presents ample stone-top bench space, and a Rangemaster cooktop and oven. The Master bedroom, with open fireplace, has a large entrance that can be purposed as a study, or perhaps a walk-in wardrobe, along with built in storage. The remaining 3 bedrooms are of generous size, all with garden-view windows and high ceilings. Of the 2 bathrooms, one features a relaxing modern bath for the cooler seasons. The adjoining sunroom adds another possibility for a study or separate living space.
Stepping outside, the north facing wrap-around alfresco area allows for large gatherings and is a great place to soak up the sun and peer through the tree-tops in contemplation.
Tucked into the lush landscape, past the pergola, is a charming historic shed that is reminiscent of a Scandinavian cottage. In addition to this is a second shed that offers vast storage space, perfect for any sort of studio or workshop that the heart desires.
With so much to offer this unique property really needs to be seen to be believed.
The township of Trentham is incredibly well situated in Central Victoria, being not much more than 15 minutes’ drive to Daylesford, Kyneton and Woodend, and close to an hour drive to Melbourne, Bendigo, and Ballarat.
A piece of history and stunning private gardens in the heart of a highly sort after town.
This is truly one of a kind.
