19 Grenville Street, Daylesford


All the timeless features that endear this mid-nineteenth century (1860’s) character homestead to those who visit are its high ceilings (11'), wraparound verandahs, wide central hallway, picture rails, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, fireplaces with mantelpieces and large square rooms.
There are 4 bedrooms, 3 ensuites and sunrooms. The north facing business room/library at the front entrance could also be a music/tv room, or 5th bedroom.
The chiffon draped patio is a romantic and secluded entertaining room accessed from a private garden niche, or the large separate dining room that easily seats 10 to 12 people.
Some modern features are the ducted gas heating, security alarm system, keyed-alike doors and windows, sensor lights, and an automatic inground sprinkler system. There are 3 paved storage sheds, a stunning laundry, and a Hampton styled kitchen.
The gardens are filled with some aged and rare majestic trees, under-planted with azaleas, cliveas, hydrangeas, camellias and rhododendrons. The orchard supplies bountiful crops of apples, pears, plums, apricots, lemons, limes and quinces. Near the pond there generous grass lawns ideal for kiddies and pets to play on, and meandering bluestone pavers.
The 2168sqm (approx.) block, the equivalent of 3 town home sites has a 60m frontage of white picket fencing and blue agapanthus plants. Cleverly zoned as 8 garden ‘rooms’, the grounds are both easy and pleasurable to maintain.
The Italianate courtyard brimming with oranges, cumquats, limes, lemons, mandarins faces the olive and birch groves, where seating arrangements offer more entertainment options.
Surrounded by walls of jasmine there is also a formal outdoor entertainment courtyard with limestone flagstones.
Subdivision is a possibility (STCA), and there has been council approved siting and design plans for a future double garage and garden studio.
Cleverly extended and renovated, this gorgeous 1860’s homestead has a flexible floor plan offering the chance to create a granny flat, Airbnb or artists’ studio. Or the entire residence could become a guest house as it has been in previous years.
Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the idyllic Wombat Botanical Gardens, there is also easy access to Daylesford’s main shopping precinct with its abundance of shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants and day spas.
Daylesford has become one of Australia’s most renowned regional towns, and 19 Grenville Street is one of its grandest properties.
