Location is just the beginning - one of Bendigo’s prestigious homes

Location is just the beginning with this stunning iconic property situated in one of Bendigo’s most prestigious streets. While privacy abounds, the rear deck encompasses arguably some of the best views of Bendigo.

Once you venture beyond the privacy fence of this property a beautifully renovated and tastefully extended two-storey Californian bungalow greets you. Paths weave through manicured gardens to the front portico featuring roughcast tapered pylon pillars supporting a terracotta tiled gabled roof.

Inside, retained features include high ceilings with decorative art nouveau panels and cornice, picture rails and polished hardwood floors. Original bevelled edge glass front doors reveal a foyer typically flanked by the best rooms with a timber staircase to the upper level.
Both front rooms have groupings of double-hung windows with wide internal sills – the main suite includes an ensuite and built-in robes, while the elegant lounge room has a gas-log fire set in a brick fireplace and adjoins a cosy sitting room with a built-in bar and a wood-fired heater in another brick fireplace.

Pass a second bedroom (BIR) and WC on your way to the expansive extension incorporating a dining area, study nook, family living room, a storage-rich laundry, and a stunning kitchen.

An entertainer’s delight, the kitchen consists of a benchmark granite-topped island with under fridge, NEFF cooking appliances, dishwasher, ample Provincial style cabinetry and a generous butler’s pantry with a servery window to the alfresco deck.

Upstairs you will find two more good-sized bedrooms, a home office/sewing room, a modern bathroom, large storage areas and access to a fabulous rooftop terrace.
External stairs for guest access make it the perfect spot for taking in panoramic city views or annual fireworks displays. A covered rear deck offers plenty of room for outdoor living and dining on the adjacent natural gas barbecue.

The approx. 1157m2 lot boasts gated access to the private back garden and a remote double garage/workshop from Forest Lane. Above the garage, a light-filled space offers a multitude of uses – rumpus/teen retreat/studio/home office/gym etc.

Essentials include hydronic heating, split system units, ducted cooling upstairs, garden sheds, a woodshed and rainwater tanks. This magnificent property has it all – street appeal, character, charm, family space and a prized location with the Arts Precinct, schools, Rosalind Park, and sporting facilities in the immediate neighbourhood. This is a truly exceptional property not to be missed.
