48-50 Victoria Parade, Kilmore
On behalf of the owners, we are proud to offer this rare opportunity in the heart of Victoria's oldest inland town. Presenting this lovingly cared for and unique piece of Kilmore's history, this home is estimated to have been built in the 1850's. Crafted from handmade bricks, this original home, on 2752m2, incorporates hardwood timber, solid foundations and quality craftmanship not equaled in this modern era.
Originally named 'The Towers' because of the two remarkable turrets, it was also once known as The Market Square Hotel. Hidden away behind shrubs and established trees, you will enjoy the privacy and tranquility the beautifully maintained gardens offer, all with the convenience of being close to the heart of the Kilmore township.
The main residence includes a range of original features, including original hardwood doors throughout, open fireplaces - five in all, high ceilings and original hardwood floors. The master bedroom includes an impressive bathroom ensuite, complete with luxurious clawfoot bath, or perhaps you would prefer to enjoy the architecture while you shower inside the turret.
The timber kitchen is in keeping with the historic building, and includes a beautiful AGA cooker which even the most discerning of chefs would enjoy cooking on. Adjoining the kitchen is a spacious breakfast room which is complimented by the formal dining room with stunning French polished cabinetry. Move onto the light filled sunroom/living room, cosy up next to the Coonara and take in the views to your established cottage gardens. Including the modern convenience of hydronic heating, the owners have spared no expense to ensure this home is comfortable year round.
In the garden, find your own versatile one bedroom cottage, perfect for guests to enjoy their stay, or perhaps utilized as a studio taking inspiration from the surroundings.
Enjoy the serenity of a bygone era, escape to your own cottage oasis, all within an hour of Melbourne. This truly unique opportunity must be seen to appreciate all of its amazing features.
