CRESWICK HOUSE – IRREPLACEABLE CHARACTER & CHARM
Welcome to Creswick House, an enchanting residence, an inspiring property, beautifully presented to capture your heart. Resting on a 3,006m2 corner allotment amongst exquisite European gardens and tucked away on a private laneway, here you will discover the timeless appeal of quality craftsmanship and the simple elegance of great design.
Built circa 1930s, reputedly by the engineer of the Maroondah Aqueduct, it has been affectionately maintained and loved by the current owners. An engaging blend of period features are today complemented by harmonious updates, seamlessly blending old world character with modern convenience. Enchanting interiors with garden vistas through original picture windows, warm timber floors underfoot and high ceilings accentuated by decorative cornice and picture rails; it exudes a genuine charm often attempted yet rarely achieved. The lounge/dining is warmed by a feature stone fireplace with insert and is ideally positioned adjacent to the galley style kitchen, with beautiful cabinetry and 900mm electric cooking. The north-facing sunroom exhibits majestic views of Mt St Leonard and provides access to the outdoor terrace, where you can take in all the beauty of the scenic surrounds. A cosy study/library inspires creativity, whilst the four robed bedrooms (master with ensuite), family bath, powder room and laundry are zoned privately in the east wing. Additional accommodation can be found in the studio, a picturesque stand alone abode ideal for independents or a B&B (STCA). It provides a living area, downstairs bath and mezzanine bedroom space with fairytale window opening to the stunning mountain view.
A wander through the grounds along meandering pathways will reveal secret nooks, rock walls framing the stunning flora including flowering rhododendrons and camellias, and the gently rolling lawn at the rear, where grand old oaks stand alongside the chook house and vegetable garden. Other outbuildings and features include a single garage with quaint barn door, hand crafted single carport, new gas ducted heating unit, under house storage, water tanks, and triple access points for vehicles.
Only a few minutes to the hub of Healesville and about 1km to Maroondah Reservoir, the best of the Yarra Valley is at your fingertips. A sanctuary for sophisticated yet relaxed living, Creswick House is an enchanting abode for an active family; a soothing residence for a creative soul. More than a house, it is a home that will inspire and capture your heart with irreplaceable character and charm.
