OUR rural towns are something special, with more and more home buyers realising the value of living in a rural town, and the lifestyle it offers.
This interest in a lifestyle change is also reflected in recent house price increases in our rural towns.
According to the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, house prices in the Melbourne metro area fell 0.6 per cent in the quarter to June 2018, while regional towns enjoyed 4 per cent growth over the same period.
Homeowners in Winchelsea have seen a 21 per cent increase in the value of their properties over the past year with the median in this town on the Barwon River now at $390,000.
McCartney Real Estate is bringing to auction a fantastic home that reflects the values of this rural community.
Located in an enviable part of town, the property at 34 Jackson Street Winchelsea is a prime example of renovation and presentation at its very best.
Beautifully set on a lovely allotment of some 980sqm, Barton Hall is a delightful home, thoughtfully representing the golden years while offering modern conveniences, quality appliances and classic appointments throughout.
McCartney Real Estate Winchelsea branch manager Geoff Bennett said that this home is quite possibly one of the finest examples of renovation and refurbishment of a house of this era that he has seen in his 33 years in real estate.
“The attention to detail and the overall presentation of this charming residence is second to none in my view,” Mr Bennett said.
“Not just a fantastic refurbishment but also beautifully set in one of Winchelsea’s most sought-after locations.
The property is to be sold predominantly furnished with the detail and consideration that has gone into such furnishing in keeping with the theme and welcoming nature of the entire residence.
The quintessential Australian floor plan incorporates three generous bedrooms, formal front lounge, a sensational new kitchen, dining, a gorgeous new bathroom, fitted laundry and separate second toilet.
The home features an ornate fireplace and mantle to master bedroom with sunny north-facing front verandah and high ceilings throughout.
