With a rich history steeped in local lore dating back to the Cobb & Co gold rush era of the mid-1800s, this stunning residence oozes charm, intrigue and grace.
A lush, established cottage front garden of heritage roses, rhododendrons and peonies provide a wonderful welcome, an air of privacy and a hint of what lies beyond. Entering this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom residence is akin to walking into the pages of history. Boasting Tasmanian Baltic pine timber-lined walls and floors and impressive 14-foot ceilings, the property’s warmth and character is easily felt.
A scrolled archway hall beckons towards the impressively-sized, light-filled lounge/dining area. Complete with a large open fireplace, Ned Kelly wood heater, detailed ceiling rose, double-sized French doors opening onto the alfresco entertaining deck and views of the orchard and garden beyond.
The master bedroom features an imposing cathedral arched 14-foot Baltic ceiling, showcasing the craftsmanship of its era. A spa ensuite, built-in robes and double French doors lead to a fragrant side garden.
A nostalgic country-style kitchen adjacent to the lounge features a delightful breakfast nook, exposed skillion timber ceiling, original IXL wood stove, SMEG gas top oven and a spacious open-style pantry.
As charming and inviting as the interior of this property is, the garden is sublime. Elevated with westerly views over Doctor’s Gully, the secluded rear garden is a botanist’s delight with a fusion of established European trees and exotics, a prolific orchard, citrus grove and vegetable garden, all flourishing in rich volcanic soil.
A whimsical, wisteria-laden timber pergola and a wood-fired pizza oven form the centrepiece of the haven, providing a host of dining and entertainment options. A substantial and bountiful crabapple tree presides over a secluded sanctuary featuring glorious hydrangeas and a fishpond. Springtime showcases the extraordinary beauty of this exotic garden to its full extent.
