OUTSTANDING CBD HERITAGE HOME
Designed in the late 1800's by William Beebe, one of Bendigo's leading architects, "Hadleigh" is as good as when the craftsmen finished work. Beebe lavished all his meticulous charm and skill on the Victorian boom style adorning it with intricate iron lacework and complex tiled patterns on verandah floors and entry pathway.
Faithfully restored and extended with a healthy dose of modernity, the residence retains an abundance of original features successfully blended with flexible family functionality.
Polished timber floors, 14 ft ceilings, lead light glazed windows, original light fittings including a stunning chandelier in the formal lounge, marble and cast iron fireplaces, timber over mantle in the dining room and charming bedroom window seats are just some of the standout features.
Generous accommodation includes three bedrooms off the hallway, two bathrooms, home office, elegant formal lounge and separate dining room. A major addition encompasses the kitchen equipped with stone benches, European appliances and butler's pantry, a casual meals area with French doors to a small balcony overlooking the pool, media/fourth bedroom, second study/sitting room with built-in cabinetry and ground-level family living area with attached kitchenette, wine cellar and large laundry with shower, handbasin and wc conveniently located for pool or guest use.
Modern improvements include ducted heating/cooling and vacuum systems, solar hot water, four-car garage and workshop with off-street parking for more vehicles in the wide, brick-paved side driveway.
Outdoors is an entertainers paradise - relax beside the tiled pool complete with swim jet, spa and solar/gas heating surrounded by a paved deck and espaliered fruit trees. Enjoy a workout in the poolside pavilion or accommodate your guests in the two storey cedar-lined chalet with living area and two bedrooms (one especially designed to capture cathedral spire views).
