53 Bowden Street, Castlemaine
Post-war perfection in this 1952 time capsule
From the original push button hardware on the kitchen cabinetry and chrome edged laminate benches to the Hills Hoist standing proudly in the backyard, this triple fronted brick veneer house provides a unique glimpse of the domestic heyday of the Great Australian Dream.
Built in 1952, this immaculately maintained three bedroom family home on a substantial block is making its first appearance on the market. This property has minimal alterations with exception to a handful of modern comforts.
Typical of the era, this charming home is designed to flow with double door access through the lounge and living rooms with beautiful wooden trim, decorative ceilings and picture rails throughout. The bedrooms have the unmistakable character that only original carpet and wallpaper can deliver.
Outside you will be greeted by a lovely garden with traditional roses and ferns, original rounded steps up to the patio entry and contrasting brick used to stylish effect. At the rear is a wide verandah that looks out over a spacious green backyard. A single car garage retains its original wooden doors with glass inset features and opens out to the backyard.
This home has been loved and meticulously cared for by the same family for almost 70 years. Now is the time to hand it over to the next generation. Such original perfection won’t last long. The property is ideally situated close to the train station, Camp Reserve, local shops and Castlemaine’s beautiful botanical gardens.
