52 Bowden Street, Castlemaine


Exceptionally well-kept by one obviously house-proud owner, this superb example of authentic retro styling is a rare find. Having evaded ad-hoc attempts to follow fads and fashions of successive years, it stands as a true testament to its era. However, whether impelled to embrace integral character or adapt to contemporary design, magnificent views will remain as the most extraordinary feature of this address.
Elevated to capture a grand panorama, it also owns the good fortune of optimal north and east orientation. Framed in timber, some of the best views in town command attention, endowing both living rooms and the kitchen-dining area with an added sense of spaciousness.
In excellent condition, original decor is displayed in ornate cornice hemming high ceilings, as well as a slow combustion stove in amazing condition sitting alongside a modern gas stove in the kitchen. An exquisite stained glass picture window and gorgeous gleaming porcelain tiles surround a genuine 60's vanity in the pristine bathroom.
Downstairs storerooms and under-house storage invite the creation of a cellar. Between the laundry and garage, a dedicated workshop is aptly positioned. Decorative balustrading edges an immense sun-drenched patio that overlooks a large backyard. Bordered by a stunning historic sandstone garden wall, the corner block is lit at night by a vintage gas lamp.
Within a few minutes' walk of the train station and only a little further to the shopping precinct, this endearing property will appeal to many purchasers. Purists wanting to preserve the delights of the past, along with those that are seeking a solid home to refurbish that is in close proximity to amenities, will be equally pleased by its multitude of assets.
