House of the week: Leading the life of luxury

THIS unique home, built in the 1920s, is ideal for anyone wanting an executive lifestyle in the heart of Bendigo.

The location, so close to the CBD, offers inner-city living with lots of class and the unusual layout and old-world features lend the home plenty of character.

With five large bedrooms and three bathrooms on 2009 square metres there is certainly space for a family.

From the moment you walk through the door you find stained timber doors, bay windows, high ceilings, deep skirting boards and chandeliers that add a touch of grandeur to match the tennis court.

There is an Axminster carpet throughout as well as ducted heating and split-system cooling.

Right of the entrance is a formal lounge area with open fireplace, and to the left is a study with fitted timber shelves.

One of the bedrooms is also located off the hallway, opposite the entrance to a large open-plan dining, living and kitchen area with wall oven, double sink and timber breakfast bar and benchtops.

The main bedroom boasts a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite while the remaining three bedrooms, each with a built-in wardrobe, are upstairs.

At the back of the house there is a laundry, toilet and cubby hole overlooking the grass lawn and the tennis court.

The garden also has a covered area for entertaining, a large “clubhouse” that was once the servants quarters, a building with a toilet, a shed for your tools, a vegetable patch, citrus and stone fruit trees, a six-vehicle carport that runs alongside the house, three water tanks and 26 solar panels on the roof to give the owners free electricity. What more do you need?
