A RARE CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY
The unique 'Old Police Residence' is now for sale.
The property sits on a large block and dates back to 1865. Many original features, including multiple fireplaces, chimneys, and stables have been retained.
The residence was purchased by the present owner in the mid-90's. For many years it was a home of quirky individual flair, and myriad happy social gatherings. The owner relocated abroad several years ago, and since that time the property has been tenanted. Today the interior presents as a solid 'blank canvas' upon which you are now invited to make your mark.
Uniquely situated in the historic precinct of Chiltern town-ship, and with the charming 'Old Lock Up' standing adjacent, the property occupies a premium position, in excellent company. Historic neighbours include the 'The Old Masonic Lodge' (now operating as a popular boutique art café and coffee shop) and the original, still operating, town post office.
The home is a 3BR (or 2 BR and study) configuration with lounge, modern kitchen and meals area. The front of the property, comprising the lounge and bedrooms is the original part of the residence complete with brick exterior, high timber ceilings and timber floors. The rear of the property is a timber extension, built on a cement slab with in-floor heating, housing the kitchen, meals area, bathroom, laundry and toilet.
The home has five open fireplaces; one in each bedroom, one in the lounge and one in the meals area. Natural gas has been connected to the house, leaving the possibility for ducted gas heating to be added.
The kitchen was renovated several years ago with an abundance of cupboards, stainless steel gas cooktop, dishwasher and stone bench tops. The meals area opens up through double French-doors both eastwards to the bricked courtyard, and west to the outdoor garden area.
The home once featured a charming "olde world" garden, the bones of which remain sufficiently for it to be restored to its former glory.
All that's now missing are new owners ready to write the next chapter, living in and loving this historic home in charismatic Chiltern.
As this property is both rare to find on the market, and unique in outlook we are going to auction the home on Saturday November 10th at 12 noon.
