NESTLED on the fringe of the ever popular regional settlement of Birregurra, an historic rural holding hits the market again after being sold just last year.
“Elliminook” at 585 Warncoort- Birregurra Road is only 135 kilometres south west of Melbourne and buffers the quintessentially quaint country town of Birregurra, which has developed a reputation as a foodie weekend destination and a great place to spend a weekend.
One of the town’s finest and earliest homes to be built in the region, the property is now on the market through Charles Stewart Real Estate.
In 1865 “Brickie Pell” built the home, set in a delightful country garden on 74 acres, mostly in patterned Flemish bond brickwork with slate and iron roof for Mr John Davenport Bromfield.
Charles Stewart’s Anthony McDonald said that Elliminook is an historical landmark property with detailing and craftsmanship you’d expect in home of this era.
“It’s also been beautifully restored and includes all the features you’d expect in an upmarket contemporary home,” Mr McDonald said.
“People may remember ‘Elliminook’ was offered for sale in October last year in a widely promoted Expression of Interest campaign.
“The property sold as a result of that campaign and is now back on the market only 12 months later.
“This is regrettable due to unforeseen family circumstances, however it presents an opportunity again for someone to acquire a unique heritage home in a wonderful location.
“It is conveniently situated within walking distance of Birregurra’s charming Main Street, and only a few minutes’ drive from the famed Brae restaurant.
“The popular coastal resort of Lorne on the Great Ocean Road is only a 30 minute drive,” Mr McDonald said.
This beautifully restored property retains its historical features but it’s also a contemporary home in every sense.
A west facing glass conservatory and a large, light and airy country kitchen and living area, with adjoining study and a butler’s pantry, overlook a magnificent central courtyard.
And in the original areas of the home there’s a beautiful sitting room with marble fireplace and a formal dining room both featuring tall ceilings, typical of the era.
“Elliminook” features six bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two bedrooms adjoin a lounge and kitchen which could be used as a self-contained apartment.
The home includes a generous wine cellar, mod grass tennis court, croquet lawn pavilion, large award-winning garden, stockyards, shedding and six paddocks, town water connected and supplemented by 125,000 litre tank capacity and a dam.
World-renowned restaurant Brae may have put Birregurra, near Colac in Victoria’s south west on the map, but its magnificently restored homes such as Elliminook that make them want to stay.
This spectacular property is listed for sale at $2,250,000.
