A historical estate-style property on the city fringe is for sale after long family ownership spanning 23 years.
Rosemont on View Street is a two-storey Victorian residence which was built in 1872 for a prominent business person.
This grand residence is the centrepiece of a twin allotment measuring about 3036 square metres with enchanting gardens, in-ground pool and north-south tennis court.
"Rosemont is magical and mystical," licensed estate agent Leonie Butler told Domain.
"The original stables are here, and it's one of the few Bendigo properties with a widow's walk."
Superb 19th-century architecture includes iron lace, sky-high ceilings, Baltic pine flooring and archway with carved corbels.
Marble fireplaces are resplendent, and intricate cornices are hand decorated with gold-leaf. Another treasure is the fully-operational antique gasoliers.
Enjoy formal and family rooms as well as a modern country-style kitchen with integrated appliances. Corian-topped chef's island and deluxe 900mm-wide Falcon double oven are more kitchen highlights.
Further features are guest suite, music room, dry cellar, modern bathrooms and upper-level balcony with sweeping views.
The four-bay stable includes loft space, underground cellar and a light-filled studio.
Paved alfresco, surrounded by parterre gardens, breakfast deck and a glorious water fountain are further delights at this grand home from the gold-rush era.
Rosemont offers an enviable city lifestyle with nearby arts, entertainment and shopping.
