A Norman castle beckons
Situated in the old goldfield diggings and set on 10 acres is one of central Victoria’s most extraordinary and unique properties. The moment you stand on the drawbridge, you are dwarfed by the sheer size of this wonderful family home and the 36’ towers.
Entry is through beautiful old timber doors into the great hall. This is the main living area with 30’ cathedral ceilings and pine flooring, a large feature fireplace and decorative brick Celtic cross.
This leads through the dining area to the large light-filled kitchen with slate flooring, electric oven and hotplates, dishwasher, and an amazing slow combustion stove with hot water jacket.
The kitchen also features an island bench, double sink plus pantry and opens out onto the veranda, courtyard and spa. Along with a study, cellar, bar and cool room, the downstairs area also includes a guest bedroom with en suite and a games room.
Upstairs is accessed by the grand hand crafted Scottish oak staircase and is home to three large double bedrooms, two with en suites, opening off the mezzanine landing and offering a parent’s retreat.
All the bedrooms open out onto the covered veranda which extends along two sides of the home.
The property provides its own water with 64,000L on site storage and two dams, one of which is a 1Megalitre dam with petrol pump providing water to the expansive garden, orchard and livestock.
A three-car garage, carport and generous shedding completes the package. This property offers big potential. Inspect by appointment only.
