An exciting addition to the property market is a rare gem from the gold rush era.
Highbury circa 1897 is a grand residence at Quarry Hill from a highly revered architect. Director and licensed estate agent Andrew Pearce of First National Real Estate said the residence was designed by William Beebe.
"Highbury reflects the architect's signature charm and skill, with its red-brick chimneys and extensive fretwork to the return verandah."
From the outside, Highbury presents as a pristine snapshot from a golden past.
Inside, it's a different story altogether.
A meticulous renovation blends characteristic features, such as Baltic pine flooring, with modern marvels and designer flair.
The kitchen boasts Bosch appliances, soft-close cabinetry, a cook's island with waterfall ends, and a servery window to alfresco decking.
In the bathroom, matt-black tapware and sparkling white tiles make a striking contrast.
More features throughout are task lighting, modern subway tiles, winter-white décor, suspended vanity and central heating.
A highlight in the home is the traditional hallway with timber-lined ceiling and decorative arch.
Pressed-metal ceilings, wide skirts and deep cornice are more early treasures.
Living options at Highbury include a light-filled family zone as well as a formal lounge with open fireplace and under-floor cellar.
Natural light floods the family zone through bay windows and fully glazed three-panel sliding doors.

The doors are custom made and measure 2.5 metres tall. Open them to create a seamless indoor-outdoor connection with alfresco decking.
Rather grand, the spacious main bedroom has soaring ceilings and adjoining study, which could easily become your ensuite and walk-in robe.
Very practical, the laundry is ideal for extra storage and it has access to the double carport.
Andrew said Highbury balances traditional style with outstanding contemporary living.
It's a perfect match for those seeking history and grandeur with modern convenience and a prized location.
Quarry Hill is a brisk walk from Bendigo Marketplace, Hargreaves Mall and Rosalind Park.
Schools, cafes, shops, arts, entertainment and the train station are within easy reach.
