Ray White Rural Victoria is pleased to present for sale 'HISTORIC LAKESIDE' 50 Oppenheims Outlet Road Pomborneit (via Geelong), this outstanding rural lifestyle estate, a striking period home with the architectural elegance of yesteryear, ideally positioned in the iconic western district.
This property offers you the opportunity to own a piece of our history. Set on approx. 188 acres this impressive heritage home has been lovingly maintained and restored by the current owners. As you wind your way down the tree lined driveway you will note the lush green pastures and note the stone settlers fencing. As the drive ends you are greeted by a traditional hedged roundabout and gardens from a bygone era. The home itself, what can I say other than your cares will melt away as you step back to a time when families gathered and laughter filled the hallways. The entry will impress and is only the tip of the iceberg.
With six generous bedrooms, three bathrooms, a light filled dining living room where sunlight reflects the beauty of the stained-glass windows. The kitchen was always the heart of the home and this one definitely offers all the space you would need to prepare meals for loved ones. With a 900mm cooker, dishwasher and ample cupboard and bench space. As per days gone by there is a dining area adjoined to the kitchen where you can imagine winter meals being shared whilst sitting by the inbuilt combustion heater.
The home also offers formal dining and living rooms that have beautiful views of the gardens. The majestic timber staircase leads to another bedroom plus an intimate lounge area within the turret. The central bathroom features a claw foot bath just the spot after a long day outdoors.
History abounds across the property with outdoor buildings, stone fencing and if trees could talk, I'm sure there would be some tales to be told.
