Introducing "Ivorlea"; the ultimate lifestyle property located on the outskirts of Bendigo that will leave even the most discerning of buyers in awe! Set on 27.5 (approx.) acres of fertile land, and showcasing a superbly renovated Victorian homestead, this property is the ideal retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life yet still offers the convenience of a 12 minute drive to the CBD!
A formal gated entry and driveway provide a tree lined access to the property, with the residence set back adequately from the road to provide both privacy and a noise barrier. Lovely cottage gardens and a return verandah surround the home, coupled with a fresh coat of paint enhancing an already appealing exterior. The building has an extensive and interesting history, with the original part of the home having been relocated from nearby Axedale in the early 1900's by horse and cart, and having undergone an extension in the 1990's.
Inside, the floor plan is bursting with personality and showcases the character and charm of yesteryear with aplomb! Having seen some tasteful renovations in recent times, previous owners have managed to blend the old with the new perfectly. The smell of a fresh paint job is still evident, whilst presentation is immaculate. Notable internal features include attractive timber floors and high ceilings, decorative ceiling roses and cornices, large windows providing several different views of the property, zoned refrigerative heating and cooling, open fire places, and updated bathrooms and kitchen.
There are four good sized bedrooms located off the gorgeous central hallway, three are equipped with built in robes whilst the master suite has feature fire place, its own ensuite and sizeable walk in robe. The flexible nature of the floor plan means you can choose to have three bedrooms and two large living areas, or four bedrooms and one large living space, depending on your individual needs. The main bathroom and laundry also lie off the central hallway convenient to the accommodation. The hallway opens at the rear into the main living area, which is flooded with natural light and warmed by a cosy wood heater. Adjoining is the spacious dining area and stunning kitchen, which will satisfy even the fussiest of household chefs. This delightful design boasts attractive timber benchtops, an absolute abundance of cupboard storage, updated cooking appliances, dishwasher, and an all-round fabulous space to prepare the family meals!
Outside, the fertile and lush 27.5 acres (approx.) has been ideally set up for horses or the hobby farmer. Extensive upgrades to the fencing in recent times ensures there is excellent electric fencing provided to four separate paddocks. Water storage is at a premium, with three large dams and two 22,500 litre tanks catering for both the humans and animals! The large 5 bay shed has concrete floor and power, and in addition to the double carport, provides plenty of undercover car parking. If enjoying the outdoors is your forte, relax anywhere under the return veranda with many vantage points to enjoy, or entertain friends on the large timber deck in the warmer months. Or for the sporting enthusiasts, challenge your family or friends to a set or two on the full sized tennis court!
