“"Dunedin" A bygone era”
Rarely does a home of this character & charm come onto the market. "Dunedin," a wonderful example of a Victorian era country home, has been intricately, respectfully and lovely restored and maintained. "Dunedin" has an extensively recorded history, with only six previous owners since 1892. The home retains most of its period features: a grand entrance hallway, internal staircase from Yea Grand Central Hotel, chimneys from the old Yea Courthouse, and leaded and ruby glass windows. "Dunedin" is graced by fireplaces with original surrounds and functional dampers, polished Baltic floors, rooms carpeted and furnished to match a bygone era, and 13' lined ceilings. Accommodation includes four bedrooms, two of which are upstairs, with dormer windows commanding magnificent views. The kitchen has 1860's wall tiles, Italian walnut bench tops, delightful lead light windows and a 'Rayburn' wood stove which can boost the hot water system, as well as a dishwasher, butler's pantry and reverse cycle air conditioner. The garden, laid out with Victorian 'garden rooms,' and Highland stone, overflows with stunning roses.
The garden has been a constant winner in the Open Gardens Scheme and extensive improvements to the landscaping. The restored bathroom with 1860's tiles has a full size separate bath, lead light windows and a Castlemaine slate floor.
There are rain water collection tanks, a glass house and a double garage. There is sensor lighting at the side and the back of the house as well as the garage. The home is set back and sits on approximately two thirds of an acre of land in close proximity to shops, schools, medical facilities and cafes.
This once in a lifetime opportunity offers much more and an inspection will delight.
