If you love the sound of rain on a tin roof, or the house settling and cooling down around you after a warm day - then the charm and character of a vintage home are a must.
Today, you can choose a blend of those long-held memories, especially with the modern and sympathetic makeover like the one here in Forest Street.
The terrace home is nestled in a streetscape of similar and equally loved homes, grand examples all of early 20th century constructions.
The facade sits beautifully amongst its neighbours with a picket fence, pretty cottage garden, decked entry and bullnose verandah.
Indoors, the retained original features are immediately apparent with stunning pressed metal ceilings, timber fretwork, double-sash windows and elaborate decorative cornice.
The three bedrooms are at the front of the home, and all have original working brick fireplaces, and two of the bedrooms feature built-in robes.

The main bedroom offers a fabulous walk-in robe, contemporary ensuite and dressing space. But it is the ambience of this space that can't easily be created - you can give yourself a special treat and rest in bed, feel the warmth and hear the fire crackle, and absorb the calm atmosphere of this fine home.
Further down the hallway is the family bathroom with a double vanity, and a walk-in shower with freestanding bathtub. The bathroom also neatly houses a practical Euro laundry.
The rear of the house features the luxurious extension. It offers the perfect blend of new and old, is easy to maintain and always looks smart.
An exposed brick wall with custom shelving edges the dining room, and the new kitchen features the very best details including soft-close cabinetry, steel benchtop, high-end appliances and a spacious butler's pantry.
Just like many of the beautiful additions to this home, the design of the work area here is first class.
The lounge at the rear of the home is filled with abundant natural light from the dual aspect windows and doors to the rear yard. A new built-in window seat with storage and shelving creates a unique space to sit and relax. Outdoors, a timber deck and timber steps lead down to the large alfresco space and low-maintenance yard.
A long driveway runs the length of the home to a double carport, providing practical vehicle storage and easy access to the rear garden.
You're just a few minutes' walk to the centre of Bendigo with this smart and easy care home. It provides the perfect combination of historical charm with modern lifestyle requirements. Phone the agent for an appointment to view.
