Daylesford District Former School House & School, Ideal B&B
Filled with character, oozing charm and offering a chance to celebrate its history, this delightful original school house lends itself beautifully to that sought after rural retreat or peaceful weekender for a couple or an opportunity to maintain its current operation as the School House Bed & Breakfast.
High timber ceilings and original polished floor boards set the scene for this classic weatherboard home in Kooroocheang. Shadowed by the school building, this home is just 20 minutes from Daylesford and/or Creswick, in the gorgeous farming community, with sweeping country side adding to its unique appeal and lifestyle.
Warmed by a freestanding combustion heater and providing an Early Kooka oven, this homely hub is bursting with character while offering a cosy place to entertain friends and family. One bedroom is available with a timber over mantel, while walls, floors, ceilings and doors celebrate the 1870?s architecture in which the home was built.
The country style lounge with wood heater has large french style doors which open onto the rear private deck and enchanting view through the landscaped garden surrounds.
Pressed metal splash backs are combined with a double vintage concrete wash trough, a gorgeous peep window and a second toilet in the laundry, while the very generous and uplifted bathroom provides an original pedestal bath, double shower, vanity and handy inside toilet. The bathroom can be easily converted back to 2nd bedroom and bathroom incorporated in the laundry.
The separate school is in original condition and lends itself to further development to incorporate into the house as extra living or bedroom space. The old blackboards and school cupboards remain a feature as does the high hall ceiling.
Entwined with vines and offering rambling organic gardens, this one acre property will encourage a weekend away, while delivering a toasty abode to raise a glass or two.
Connected to tank water and offering a brand new hot water service, this home with its quaint veranda is well positioned in the popular Daylesford district and offers a restful, charming home, filled with fascination and inspiration.
