Tucked away in one of those discreet pockets of genteel, stately homes, 8 Echuca Street has it all; elevation, over half an acre of simply magnificent trees and gardens, and its Quarry Hill location.
The resplendent, 140 year old home has been carefully tended and updated, so that you can still see its fine bones - stunning exposed beams and vaulted skylights, polished timber floorboards, bespoke shelving, chandeliers, original wallpaper and pressed metal ceilings. Everywhere you look, you will be charmed by the bay windows, the glass door handles, dado boards and leadlight windows. They are the home's story book.
If you like to take advantage of our balmy Bendigo days, then there are several verandah 'nooks', think tiled and stone paving with white cast iron balustrades, where you can nestle in each one depending on the time of day and the season.
But if you have a growing family, then this house will also impress you with its versatility. The floor plan is flexible enough to host huge Christmas gatherings, or quiet nights 'in' with a few good mates.
A kitchen renovation was undertaken a few years ago and it now boasts a walk-in pantry and Smeg pyrolytic oven. The stunning claw foot bath takes centre stage in the bathroom, and there is a second shower room to assist with getting everyone ready in the mornings.
There is ducted heating and cooling throughout. The 2088sqm estate boasts not just an historic home, but a pool, cellar, shedding, a one bedroom unit and manicured cricket pitch/tennis court, with dual access.
