Atherstone 1862, Harcourt

Settled by one of the Central Goldfields early pioneers Atherstone homestead combines the appeal of historical and cultural significance with the opportunity of a revitalised future. Nestled in the Harcourt Valley, the original cottage was built from local granite and is a fine example of vernacular architecture and construction, reflective of a golden era.

Sitting at the foothills of Mt Alexander, this 39 acre (15.8 ha) property features woodland, pasture and 2 acres of Victorian cottage gardens, with over 200 varieties of roses, grand European trees and fruiting species. The main residence is centred within the gardens and boasts a large country kitchen and dining area, sitting room, library, 3 bedrooms and a study. One of the most exceptional features of Atherstone is the picturesque lake and summer house encompassed and shaded by sweeping willows.

Numerous outbuildings include 2 separate granite stone studios with the potential to be converted to luxury accommodation (STCA), a large barn, double carport and garden shed. The bespoke stables, a more recent addition, sit on the south side of the property next to an Olympic size dressage arena. The property includes a 6 megalitre water right.

Atherstone, a rare opportunity being only the 3rd time offered for sale in 156 years. It is less than 90 minutes from Melbourne and 20 minutes from Bendigo.
