Iconic Daylesford Landmark Cottage (circa 1864) with Spectacular Views
This cottage has been beautifully restored and updated whilst retaining its period charm. The home is situated high on Wombat Hill, commanding panoramic views over the township and out to the distant ranges.
The first floor consists of a country kitchen that includes Smeg appliances and a Ned Kelly wood heater; a dining room with colonial double doors that open out to the deck and gardens; and a light and bright living room with views and a cosy gas log fire place. There are two downstairs bedrooms with BIRs; a separate laundry, toilet and bathroom; and under stair storage. Downstairs also includes the comfort of split system heating and cooling.
Upstairs consists of a light large bedroom which lends itself to being a studio or home office space. It has lovely period windows overlooking the historic multi-tiered year-round gardens.
These rambling park-like gardens provide many quiet spots to enjoy the outdoors and views, grow some vegetables, enjoy the walnut and fruit trees. There is also direct access to the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens and Cafe.
This home also has a stone lock up garage / workshop and cellar, plus a garden shed.
But nothing surpasses the spectacular terrace with pergola that is shaded by a wisteria, an incredible spot to soak in the amazing views and sunsets, reminiscent of Tuscany.
A quiet place to relax and enjoy long lunches and the alfresco lifestyle, all situated only a five minutes stroll to the main street of Daylesford, and its many gourmet restaurants, wine bars, day spas, shops and galleries. Other attractions such as the Sunday Markets, the Farmers Arms Hotel and Lake Daylesford are all within walking distance as well. Properties with this country charm and spectacular views are few and far between.
