Breathtaking Victorian home is a true treasure
Welcome to Booth Street; watched over by Lansell's Fortuna Villa and steeped in goldfields-era heritage. Number 30 has all the charm and character of its 19th century neighbourhood, plus surprises aplenty. This beautiful property has been loved by the one family for almost 40 years, in which time it's undergone a host of sympathetic, bespoke renovations and extensions to deem it fit for modern living and a busy, creative, social lifestyle. All the most coveted Victorian features are here, including high timber-lined ceilings, dado boards, polished floors, stained glass windows and open fireplaces. Start with opening the picket gate, walking up the red brick garden path, stepping up to the iron-lace bull-nosed verandah and entering the front door onto a long hallway, with plaster arch. The floorplan has been cleverly altered to accommodate four bedrooms, three bathrooms and up to four living zones within. The original part of the home has three of the bedrooms, each with their own heritage character. Two have built-in-robes, one has an ensuite. The first living room exudes a casual elegance thanks to sweeping drapes, an ornate timber mantelpiece, a door to the return veranda, and French doors through to the kitchen. Take the recycled timber staircase, with all its lovely creaks, up to the second storey, which houses a sitting room, plus a grand master suite with high raked ceiling and dormer windows overlooking the rusty roofs and brick chimneys of old gold Bendigo. A walk-through robe leads to a designer bathroom, with exquisite tiling, a bath and wide shower. Back downstairs, the dining room/kitchen forms the warm heart of the home. It has a recycled timber bench top, stainless steel wall oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher and pantry cupboard. This space flows through to a double brick family room, with a bay window offering garden views and the ideal working-from-home nook. Noteworthy is the ducted heating and cooling throughout the home, plus ceiling fans. The good life continues outside (appox 800m2 block), thanks to a huge brick-paved undercover entertainment space with built-in bar and wood heater. A shed/workshop, cute cubby house, outdoor toilet and double carport also feature. However, the garden is the true champion, which its lacy silver birches, lush agapanthus and decades-old grape vine. This is a classic, yet one-off, example of an historic Bendigo home, and a true gift from one passionate and creative local family to another.
