Prepare to be completely taken in by the size and charm of this beautifully presented Victorian home with grand proportions and stunning period details throughout.
Set in a quiet and picturesque Gembrook location overlooking rolling farmland beyond the Puffing Billy railway tracks, this home welcomes you via a rose arch pergola onto the front deck with a spot made to enjoy your morning coffee.
The central hallway (or bowling alley!) with feature archway is typical of Victorian design with all 6 bedrooms leading off. Throughout; 10-foot ceilings with ornate cornice, Victorian sash windows, bespoke light fittings and a delightful period colour palette.
There are multiple ways to organise the bedrooms - exchange one or two for office, study spaces or a dressing room. This is a home an extended family might consider as you can easily divide the rooms to suit. The formal front lounge works as well as a 7th bedroom if you are the Von Trapp family.
The master ensuite is an opulent full-sized bathroom with standalone bath and separate shower. The family bathroom will serve the busiest household and the laundry has a full wall of storage and leads out to the side east-facing decking.
The chef’s kitchen full of English country charm complete with butler’s pantry features an exciting 900mm multi-door Belling electric oven, butlers sink and 5 ring gas-burner. Entertain from here while channelling your inner Nigella Lawson as you look out over the enormous living and dining space. The talking point here is the impressive stone and reclaimed wood fireplace. Can you imagine the Christmas stockings hung here all in a row? And double doors separate a third living zone, currently set up as a children's playroom but could also work for teens or as a theatre room.
Open up the two sets of double patio doors to the adjoining undercover alfresco area with kitchen garden full of herbs.
The newly sealed driveway brings you to the double garage and behind this a workshop with concrete floor, electric roller door, power points and workbenches, all ready for your DIY projects.
Meander through the Claret Ash, Japanese and Canadian maples, mandarin, orange and feijoa trees The raised vegetable beds ready for your spring veggies and a chicken coup for your hens. Sit with them awhile and enjoy one of the most splendid views of our region. An additional tool shed here awaits your ride-on mower.
