Heron House c1893
In the pretty tree-lined Berkeley Street sits Heron House c 1893, a double-fronted Victorian home with the classic bull-nosed verandah, beautifully restored and maintained, a property with the "wow" effect. Walking distance of the Castlemaine North Primary School, Kalimna Park and a short stroll into central Castlemaine for retail and additional amenities, this home is immaculate, private and move-in ready.

A pathway leads from the front picket fence to the wrap-around verandah and into the central hall. Dominated by high ceilings, the home features two north-facing bedrooms with large windows overlooking the front garden, one with a built-in open robe and wall air conditioner and the second is used as a study. A third bedroom and a spacious bathroom with a bath, shower, vanity and toilet are opposite the main bedroom with double doors to the east verandah, a ceiling fan, built-in robes and an ensuite with a shower, vanity and a toilet.

Well-thought-out with a seamless transition between old and new results in the unexpected wow, with the rear of the house opening up into a generous open-plan kitchen with dining and living, highlighted by stunning stone flooring and large windows framing the surrounding garden. The country-style kitchen provides an island bench with additional seating and storage, a SMEG gas cooktop, an undermount oven, a dishwasher, and timber benchtops. The dining space has external access to the east verandah, and the living encased with windows has a split system and an open fireplace, with a sliding door leading to the back garden and a sitting area. A laundry located off the kitchen has external access and storage. Updates include internal window shutters, and ducted heating and period details being floorboards and double-hung windows.

Externally, the 1063 sqm property is fully fenced, and the low-maintenance garden has meandering pathways and established trees that create privacy and quiet places to sit. A carport leads to a garage/ studio with power, and to the rear of the property is an above-ground swimming pool. If you are searching for the "wow" and the move-in ready, Heron House is the ideal choice.
