The Perfect Fusion
A stone's throw away from all Castlemaine offers, this three-bedroom period home provides modern comfort with period charm and a beautiful borrowed landscape never to be built upon. The property is within walking distance of the train station, the Railway Hotel, Camp Reserve, the Mill Complex, the Botanic Gardens, and the thriving Castlemaine retail and restaurants.

Elevated from the street, steps lead to a wrap-around bull nose verandah, overlooking pretty Gingell Street and directing you toward the rear of the property before opening onto a private terraced courtyard, perfect for entertaining. A modern addition to the home seamlessly merges with the original as you enter through a sliding door into the north-facing dining with dappled light filtering in, creating a soft, cosy feel to the space. An open-plan layout creates a seamless connection between dining, kitchen and living, all with outlooks onto the terrace and borrowed landscape. The updated country-style kitchen provides a Miele dishwasher, an AEG induction cooktop and Bosch wall oven, and a freestanding island bench with a timber top that allows for bar-style seating. The kitchen/ dining space has direct access to the garage. A step into the living is a step into the original home, with its timber shiplap walls, pressed metal ceiling, ceiling rose, and open fireplace with period surround.

Of the three bedrooms the home features two are front facing with views of Gingell Street and surrounds, framed by large double-hung windows. One bedroom features an open fireplace with a period surround, and the second has built-in robes. Servicing these bedrooms is an updated period-style bathroom with a shower, a clawfoot bath, a vanity, a toilet and a European-style laundry. The main bedroom is private at the rear of the home and has built-in robes, a sliding door to the garden and an ensuite with a walk-in shower, a wall-hung basin and a toilet. A secure garage has internal access, provides charging for an electric car and has an adjoining workshop/ home office with external access. The home's modern comforts include a 5Kw solar system, double glazing, highly insulated, a heat pump hot water unit, ducted heating, and evaporative cooling. Period charm includes high-pressed metal ceilings, timber wall details, and double-hung windows.

The 521 sqm (approx) property includes four water tanks (three are under the house) and a shed. The north-facing terraced entertaining area has a retractable sun awning, rock walling and the borrowed landscape from crown land - never to be built upon. The low-maintenance garden features a nice mix of ornamental and native planting along with citrus trees (lemon, lime, native finger lime) and fruit trees (cherry, nectarine, plum, mulberry and feijoa).

With an ideal location in the hub of Castlemaine, a stone's throw away from the vibrancy this historic town offers, this property offers the perfect fusion of period charm with modern comfort and a beautiful borrowed landscape offering privacy, making this town living with a country feel.
