Welcome to Bagshot Manor, a glorious 7.2-hectare property, with a further 2.8 hectares under lease, and a custom home with French provincial flair.
All who cross the threshold find themselves in an immense entry hall gazing upon a breathtaking double staircase reminiscent of a Georgian mansion.
You are now in a home graced with almost 70 squares of living space, a U-shaped beauty where the wings flank a most impressive oasis whose crowning glory is a salt chlorinated in-ground pool with marble and travertine surrounds.
The home's foyer is the epitome of elegance, under a towering 5.4-metre raked ceiling a wrought iron chandelier is suspended. This gorgeous piece both complements and accentuates the bespoke staircase of Victorian ash.
One glance at the kitchen attests to the fact that no expense has been spared in the pursuit of quality. Features include granite benches, twin ovens, contemporary tapware and a butler's pantry.

Double doors reveal a spacious lounge to the left, and to the right are luxurious guest quarters where a sitting room adjoins a bedroom, and the ensuite provides your guests with their own oversized shower and twin vanity.
The symmetry of the home is aesthetically pleasing, and both wings have picture windows overlooking the resort-style pool. Window-lined hallways end in versatile open living spaces, one is a gymnasium and the other is a billiard room where French doors offer direct access to pool-side entertaining.
The west wing is home to the second of five bedrooms, its semi-ensuite can be used to service the billiard room. In the east wing, another two bedrooms are serviced by a powder room and bathroom with a freestanding bathtub.
The main bedroom suite occupies the entire first floor. French doors and a Juliette balcony allow you to take in the fresh air and atmosphere as you overlook the large, merbau-decked alfresco area in the foreground to the pool.
A mud room is handy to the massive 21.5x7.5-metre shed, ideal for vehicle storage or a workshop. This shed also houses the batteries and back-up generator for the solar system of this completely off-grid residence. The batteries store a massive 26 kilowatts of power, and on those rare occasions when it's needed, the eight-kilowatt diesel generator functions automatically.
Further green features include thermal external wall construction, double glazing, block-out blinds, insulated walls and ceilings.
Bagshot Manor is a lifestyle retreat and a family wonderland. It feels like a sanctuary, with serene views over a carpet of green, and tree-lined Bendigo Creek forming the rear boundary. Far enough from the bustle, yet close enough to enjoy Bendigo's rich arts, classic architecture and cafe culture.
Inspection is highly recommended.
