A Fifties Icon In A Revered Location

The 1950s was an era dominated by a prosperous economy, a high standard of living, family-focused values and the ‘suburban dream’ of a house of one’s own with the large family car, a TV in the lounge and the ubiquitous Hills Hoist and lemon tree in the back yard.

The Hills Hoist is still here and the mid-century character of the home is preserved: with polished hardwood floors, high ceilings, detailed cornices, corner windows and original light fittings.

The floor plan comprises 3 king-size bedrooms, central bathroom with original fixtures including pedestal basin, second renovated bathroom, renovated light-filled kitchen with island bench and 2 distinct living zones for entertaining and relaxing. Everything has been freshly painted throughout, for the new owners to move straight in and enjoy.

Occupying a blue-ribbon position between Piper Street and the Botanic Gardens, the home’s optimal orientation maximises northern sunlight and airflow, and there is a strong connection to the front and back gardens with a liquid amber and 2 mature apple trees setting the scene.

Simpson Street was once part of the main thoroughfare through Kyneton, and this property was once the site of the original way stop for storing gold during the gold rush. Horse and wagons would enter along the bluestone path accessible from Ebden Street. To this day, Simpson and Edben Streets are lined with historic blue stone gutters and 100+ year old oak and elm trees, making a glorious backdrop for this home, particularly during autumn drenched in golden sun.

Play croquet or bowls across the road or take a leisurely stroll through the historic Botanic Gardens, along with the nearby picturesque Campaspe River walking track. The vibrant Kyneton shopping precinct with cafes, eateries, and recreational facilities, is also within 500m and a 15min walk to the train station which can take you to Melbourne’s CBD within an hour.

This is a home that perfectly encapsulates so many of the nostalgic attributes of mid-century design, whilst offering the opportunity to live in now, renovate later and with some forethought, perhaps convert into a dual occupancy or potential 2-lot subdivision.

Home features:

• 3 large bedrooms with lead light windows, BIR and fans
• Main bathroom with bath and shower, second bathroom with shower and toilet
• 2 living areas – a large lounge room and sitting room
• New kitchen installed in 2018 with soft close drawers, 900mm freestanding Ilve oven with 5 burner gas cook top
• Separate laundry
• Corner 869sqm block with secure yard and double gate access
• 2 car 6 x 7.5m Colourbond garage with concrete floor and power supply
• Space for a 3rd car, trailer, boat or caravan
• Opposite planned Community Hub, RSL Bowling Club and Croquet Club
