When your family strolls home from any one of the community events in town, you will be following the same footsteps as many former Bendigonians, and whether it's along the front footpath, or the undulating Broom Street lane beside the home, rest assured you can become the next chain in the history that abounds at this fabulous location.
From 1875, people on the goldfields arrived in horse drawn carriages or on foot, as they came to see the banker Mr J.B. Watson at the gold office.
You can still see and marvel at the huge sandstone bricks that would have made the walls impenetrable, and look out of those same sash windows which gave the occupants a keen eye on approaching visitors.
Today the property basks in the streetscape of similar vintage homes. It too is full of stature and grace, and cared for not only because of its close proximity to the CBD, but for its ability to provide a quality home while acknowledging its past glories. They blend superbly.
It is a sunny, light filled double-storey, bespoke home, where the sheen of polished Baltic pine floors reflects all the comforts of the 21st century.
Even as you make use of the open fires, there is also ducted central heating and cooling and those high, ornate ceilings enhancing the ambience.
Immaculately presented with wonderful period appeal, it is a captivating blue-chip family home, with three bedrooms, main with open fire place and walk-in-robe, and the remaining bedrooms with built-in robes.
There is a separate formal lounge with open fire place.

The renovated galley-style kitchen has all modern stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and induction cooking, plus soft close drawers.
The polished pine floors sweep around to the separate dining area which also has an open fire place with mantle piece and magnificently ornate fire surround.
Through the double French doors you'll find a beautiful private courtyard garden which is the ideal space for relaxing and/or entertaining.
Every nook and cranny of the home has been lovingly tended, so that today it is a comfortable family home, with ample and clever storage ideas, light filled 'happy' spaces, and enough shedding and garden area for the kids and pets.
This is a top quality inner-city home in an ideal location, as it is close to Girton Grammar School and Sacred Heart Cathedral in Wattle Street, the Bendigo Art Gallery and the View Street precinct, not to mention Bendigo's finest restaurants and cafe's all within walking distance.
Phone the agent for an appointment to inspect - and leave enough time to take in all there is on offer at this historic residence.
