‘St. Olive’

Magnificent ‘St. Olive’ is a beautiful Victorian country residence (circa 1880), privately secluded at the end of a 1km long driveway and set within approx. 47 acres of rich fertile pastures. The home has a beautiful aesthetic with stunning views over the countryside towards ancient volcanic hills, and is encased within a lush garden with mature European trees and shrubs.

Well sheltered by a wide flagstone paved wrap-around verandah, the home has been lovingly restored and retains many of its period features including original lead-light doors and windows, polished timber floors, a wide internal hallway, high ceilings, strapped walls, and double hung windows. There are 3 large bedrooms with open fireplaces, and 2 classically restored bathrooms. The formal drawing room includes a Clean Air fireplace, built-in timber cabinetry to suit a study or home office, floor to ceiling windows, and French doors leading out to the picturesque garden. The house is warmed by hydronic heating throughout.

At the rear of the home is a light-filled country styled kitchen appointed with gas and electric Miele appliances and a spacious butler’s pantry, along with a living/dining zone. With timber lined walls and ceiling, this wonderful room exudes warmth and character. Features include a large Clean Air fireplace, laundry, and powder room.

The house paddock is fully irrigated and includes established oaks, elms, cedars, hawthorn hedges and fruit trees. Water supply is in abundance. A bore pumps to the large dam, animal troughs, and a holding tank used for a pop-up garden irrigation system. There are 3 rainwater tanks supplying the main residence with fresh drinking water.

This property offers an easy and flexible rural lifestyle in a stunning and tightly held district, offering superb views as far as the eye can see. All within close reach of historic towns, only 20 minutes’ drive to Daylesford, 5 mins to Creswick and 15 mins to Ballarat.
