ELEGANT & VERSATILE PERIOD HOME IN CENTRAL DAYLESFORD
Sophisticated and polished, this exquisitely curated and highly versatile property is positioned in the heart of Daylesford and presents the ultimate country lifestyle just metres from the Vincent street cafes, galleries, and shopping.
Circa 1906, the main residence offers generous proportions with discrete period detailing and quality appointments to deliver serene interior spaces bathed in natural light.
The property comprises the owner’s home and two guest apartments - one in the main residence with its own entrance, and a separate studio dwelling at the rear. A side laneway provides private access to both guest apartments.
For those wanting to continue to ‘live in one and rent the other two’ there is nothing to do except move in and capitalise on the holiday rental market.
Versatility is a key feature of this property and the main residence can be easily restored to a spacious family/generational three bedroom home by recombining the owners residence and one of the guest apartments.
For the astute investor or those wishing to value add to this blue chip location the property is being sold with recent planning approval for subdivision of the main house from the studio at the rear, including approval for a north facing extension of the studio.
The property is further future-proofed with a valuable Commercial Zoning. With its absolutely central location this superb property offers other exciting possibilities, for example gallery with owner/manager quarters, retail, therapy or restaurant (STCA).
