Timsbury ( circa 1875 )
One of the original Mt. Macedon hill station properties, “Timsbury” will immediately capture your heart.
Set behind remote controlled gates and a white picket fence and surrounded by sweeping lawns and mature trees, Timsbury is a distinguished Victorian era residence steeped in history but perfectly adapted for modern living.
A grand entrance leads to a formal living room with a Cheminees Philipe wood heater, elegant window seat and huge picture window with floor to ceiling drapes and views of Mount Towrong. On the other side of the entrance is an equally grand dining room, with open fireplace, intricate antique mantel piece and commanding garden views.
Beyond these formal rooms lies the modern and sophisticated kitchen and family meals area, with walk-in pantry, induction cooking and integrated appliances. Skylights flood the area with natural light and French doors lead directly onto the expansive veranda, perfect for a morning coffee. The kitchen, which has blackbutt flooring and ample storage, also provides direct access to a sunny vestibule and a large family/billiard room with a wood heater and private deck.
The ground floor has two bedrooms, both with ensuites and beautiful garden views. The master bedroom also has a large dressing room and open fireplace. Upstairs, there are four more generous bedrooms, three with open fireplaces and built in robes, as well as a bathroom, box room and a reading room/study opening out to the balcony. Hydronic heating keeps the home comfortable all year round.
Outside, the return veranda provides a tranquil spot to enjoy one of Mount Macedon’s grandest established gardens, with mature rhododendrons, Chinese pistachio tress, Japanese maples, a commanding copper beech tree, orchard, stonework and grand shady oaks, perfect for picnics and a long lunch with friends. Meander from the European garden into the peaceful eucalypt parkland and down to the tree fern-lined ponds and Willimigongon Creek.
A one minute walk to Mount Macedon pub and Trading Post café, 30 minutes to Melbourne Airport and less than an hour to Melbourne CBD, “Timsbury” offers an exceptional and rare opportunity to own one of Victoria’s few surviving grand hill stations and live a refined country life.
