Embla: A Timeless Treasure in Trentham

Built in the 1890s, originally a cobbler’s cottage and now affectionately known as ‘Embla,’ this property is poised to leave a lasting impression on you. Originally acquired as a weekend retreat, the current owner was captivated by the charm of both the home and the close-knit community of Trentham. “The winters may be cold, but the people are warm” she poignantly remarked.

During her time here, she has meticulously modernised the residence while preserving its historical character. Consider thoughtful upgrades, such as double-glazed windows with period-appropriate frames and convenient pull-down fly screens. The walls have been fully insulated and a new roof has been installed. In the colder months, the Ned Kelly wood heater emanates its warmth, while the split-system heating and cooling ensure effortless comfort year-round.

Discover quality woollen carpeting in the bedrooms, complemented by old English lace and linen curtains, along with ceiling fans. Period features charm, including original hardwood floors, timber-lined ceilings and a decorative fireplace in the master bedroom.

The home has been opened at the rear to integrate a kitchen, dining and living area. The kitchen is timeless and stylish with royal blue cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and windows picture framing the enchanting garden. A space has been artfully created for your wine collection where the original woodfire oven once stood.

The contemporary bathroom features a stepless shower, while an additional outdoor toilet adds convenience.
Outside wonder through the ‘secret garden’, where century-old exotic and native plantings mingle with fragrant English roses. Delight in harvesting blackberries, raspberries and cherries, embracing the country spirit by making jam for neighbours and friends.

The house is situated at the front of the expansive 986sqm allotment offering exciting potential for future development (subject to council approval).

At the very rear of the property, the stables, boasting original exposed hardwood beams and a polished concrete floor, present an inspiring space for a home office or potential business venture (subject to council approval). The vistas from here are stunning, with established maples encircled by meticulously maintained hedging.

Relax on the front porch beneath the majestic Spruce tree, surrounded by daphne and a lavender hedge—a truly romantic setting. This exceptional address is just a stone’s throw from the Main Street, where you can enjoy coffee, conversation and artisan bread from Redbeard Bakery. Nearby amenities include the primary school, local pool and Quarry Street Reserve Lake.
