House of the Week Eaglehawk: 61 Victoria Street

Unique family living

WE all know that Victorian-style homes in Bendigo are great candidates for renovation, but it’s the way this stunning family home in the heart of the Borough has been renovated that makes it stand out from the rest.

Sure, it’s had all the hard and expensive work done – it’s been replumbed, rewired and restumped – but the owners have brought so much more to this home.

Recycled timbers, handcrafted benchtops and other unique touches, bring a warmth and style that are rare to find in such a functional family home.

Of course, it makes the most of its heritage features too – polished floorboards, high ceilings and open fireplaces in all the bedrooms as well as the central lounge/sitting room. But the addition of a bright and stylish split-level kitchen, dining and living area at the rear of the home adds a contemporary edge as well as so much space and light.

The kitchen is a cook’s delight with hardwood benchtops, a 900mm stainless steel oven, five-burner cooktop and canopy rangehood. There’s also a spacious walk-in pantry.

From the dining area, steps lead down to the family room with split-system heating and cooling and glass doors opening to a covered timber deck of more than 25 square metres – a wonderful entertaining space.

Ducted gas heating and under floor insulation makes this a wonderfully warm winter home – another reason this Victorian stands out from the rest – and two fully-renovated bathrooms add to the family appeal.

Outside, the 1000-square-metre allotment is a real bonus. There are lawn areas, fruit trees and established gardens, as well as wonderful driveway access along the side of the house leading to a double garage with built-in studio space at the back. It even has its own heating and cooling.

With a double carport at the front of the property, it means you have undercover parking for four vehicles.

All this could be yours, within a few hundred metres of the Eaglehawk shops and other amenities including schools and sporting facilities.

The unique qualities of this property make it must visit this weekend.
