Historic home in the premier Wombat Hill precinct opposite the Convent Gallery.
Constructed in 1861 by Henry Wheeler, the first Parliamentarian for the Daylesford area, this property comprises 2 dwellings: a substantial 4 bedroom family home with an expansive living area and separate kitchen, wrap around verandah overlooking a 150 year old garden with its kaleidoscope of colour, a magnificent Magnolia, and circular alfresco area. The garden was reputed to have been planted by Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller at the same time as the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens, with the former front garden now a public park.
The 2nd dwelling was formerly a separate dining room and still retains its soaring Baltic pine ceiling and original skylight, and has its own kitchen and bathroom. Set against a backdrop of original period highlights, this idyllic property provides an ideal opportunity for a home-based business, or alternatively a stunning and convenient B&B.
