In a quiet and secluded area, this beautiful double brick home with its fine Beebe pedigree and an enviable address on the rise from the cathedral in Wattle Street, has been content to enfold the handful of families who have called it home in the past; now it is your turn.
From the original 1895 cast iron front fence, the tessellated tiled terrace to the 11 cast iron verandah posts and the lacework to match, this is a very impressive home.
Inside, acclaimed architect William Beebe has continued with the lavish decor, featuring a grand entry hall, bluebirds in the air vents and double ornate decorations on the cornices, as well as the impressive ceiling roses.
There are four bedrooms, the main with a modern ensuite and walk-in robes.
The two front bedrooms both have open fireplaces with marble surrounds.
There is no need to rely on them for warmth in the nowadays though, as there is quietly efficient hydronic heating to all rooms, but it certainly adds to the glamour.
The captivating formal living/dining room also has the original open fireplace, bay window, four-inch thick carpets and enough space for a baby grand piano.
This part of the home would have hosted musical soirees and poetry reading nights; it is an exquisite area ready for you to claim it as your own.
The glass conservatory-style extension is a stunning addition to the home. It is a unique build and overlooks the back lawn, as well as the alfresco dining area to the side, where the grape vines give you mottled shade from the summer heat.
It is adjacent to the light filled, chic modern kitchen. Here there is a butler's pantry, dishwasher, and induction cooking. This open plan meals/living area can host a huge family gathering, or be cleverly sectioned by the use of furniture settings.
There is also a huge cellar under the home, with an entry from the kitchen via a wooden trapdoor with brass ring handle.
With its mix of Baltic pine timber floors, stained timber, carpets and floor runners, the home is as comfortable as you could wish.
The climate control includes hydronic heating and various reverse cycle systems, and 8kw solar panels to help with the budget.
The immaculate gardens and landscaping include citrus trees in the paved travertine courtyard, as well as the self-cleaning salt chlorinated pool.
Further back on the 1045 square metre allotment, is a substantial barn style, double garage workshop, with rear access off Broom Street.
Located in the dress circle of Bendigo city, your family can revel in the location as others have done for the past 130 years or so - you're within easy walking distance of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, the dragon procession at Easter, View Street boutique shops and eateries, Rosalind Park and the C.B.D.
