“Lime Tree House – a botanical & lifestyle treasure”
PLEASE CONTACT THE AGENT TO REGISTER FOR AN INSPECTION (TEXT MESSAGE OR CALL).
Meticulously renovated and beautifully maintained, Lime Tree House is one of Mount Macedon’s finest botanical treasures.
Remarkable in its execution, the restoration of Lime Tree House is impressive. The story of the home must begin in the new designer kitchen where every detail has been considered. Embraced in natural light and garden views, the magazine worthy space features New York marble against black granite, two ovens, English tap wear and loads of extras. With standout tiling, recycled timber vanity and raindrop shower, the central bathroom is also a must see. And its not often we feel the need to highlight the laundry, but it’s genuinely impressive; moonlighting as a mudroom, the space incorporates a shower/wc, inbuilt cabinetry and gorgeous tiling. Framed with rhododendrons, the master suite includes a fan and built-in robes whilst two further bedrooms with built-ins of their own are generous in their offering. With spotted gum floorboards, the home is comfortably heated via a woodfire with new double-glazed windows and split AC providing extra comfort.
Designed by renowned horticultural enthusiasts Mollie and Alan Dodge, the gardens showcase the very best of exotic flora with an abundance of colour and produce. On entry, you’ll note ‘The Park’ to your right – framed by towering Gums, scattered with Liquid Ambers and featuring a flourishing vegie garden, orchard and tree top views. Carpeted by a sea of bluebells, a row of Lime Trees (the namesake of the property) stand proud whilst the Moss Garden - soft underfoot and gracefully shaded - will become a favourite for family and entertaining. Turritable Creek embraces the boundary of the property and, if you look close enough, you might just spot the remnants of an original watermill – famed by 1800s sawmillers. Featuring in Burkes Backyard and Gardening Australia and celebrated for the striking mix of rhododendrons, azaleas, roses, maples, dogwoods and manicured hedges the gardens are genuinely a sight to behold.
Further features of the property (approx. 2.5 acres) include double carport (with potential for extension STCA), original milling yard, hot house and wrought iron front entry gates.
Positioned on the much loved Devonshire Lane, and moments from the very best of schools and amenities, this unique property has been worth your wait.
