30 Panton Street, Eaglehawk VIC 3556
1860's BRICK CHARMER WITH HUGE POTENTIAL!!
Welcome to "Somerset" one of the early residences of Eaglehawk, an 1860's double red brick home set amongst other 18th century period homes and located just a 3-minute walk to Eaglehawk shops and an easy 10-minute drive to Bendigo CBD.
This property would have been one of the grand homes in the area in its heyday. Now, in need of a makeover, but with huge potential to be brought back to its former glory, this is an exciting opportunity to own a unique and wonderful part of Bendigo's history.
On a corner allotment measuring approximately 1,193Sqms there is scope for a subdivision (STCA), a modern extension or a large shed as there is access to the rear yard from Parsonage Grove.
Striking pillars and a welcoming veranda at the front of the home ooze character and charm as do the timber floors, high decorative ceilings and original fireplaces throughout the residence. The floor plan consists of 4 bedrooms plus a study with the master bedroom at the front of the home having an open fireplace with timber mantle, dado boards and decorative cornice.
The country styled kitchen was updated some time ago. It has an electric free-standing stove in the old chimney, subway tiled splashback, pine lined ceiling, overhead glass display cabinets and a good amount of bench space. The adjacent dining area has a gas brickette style fireplace and room for a dining table. There is a trap door that leads to an under the floor cellar. The bathroom has also been updated some time ago and features a shower and vanity, a separate bathroom and a separate toilet. Another room previously used as a formal dining room has an open fireplace with timber mantle and pined lined ceiling. The main living space at the front of the home has decorative ceilings, floorboards, dado boards, a gas heater and french doors that lead to the front veranda.
Out the back is a brick paved alfresco area, sundry shedding that has previously been used as a workshop, studio, BBQ area (was the old wash house), a single garage and a huge Peppercorn tree. The gardens at the front have a circular path that leads under an arbour to the front veranda and many rare plants that were planted by previous owners in the 1920's.
The property is ready for its new owners to turn this grand old lady back to the home she deserves to be.
