Recently rescued and restored as an original beauty, with a sandstone fireplace, grand front porch with serene views across the valley, polished floorboards, leadlight windows and beautiful indoor spa bath. Reverse cycle heating/cooling, Gas log fireplaces, beautiful gardens and outdoor bbq/entertaining area. An eclectic mix of antique persian rugs, oriental artworks, empire style furnishings, bespoke bathroom mural and high art deco ceilings make for an elegant and fascinating visual experience. Immediately nearby there are walking tracks through forests with abundant wildlife, goldfields and historical sites. Discover antique stores in Chewton, and Henrietta's is only a 3 minute drive to Castlemaine and the cafe/foodie/arts/events always on offer year round. Visit the Wesley Hill Market on a Saturday morning and cook up a storm in the fully appointed kitchen. An ideal weekend retreat from the noise of the city! Named for the lady the house was built for early last century, Henrietta's sits atop a site rich in Goldfields history. Over a hundred and fifty years ago the location was reputedly home to a surgeon, a pub, a Cobb & Co depot and a couple of other small titles. Numerous archeological curious have been unearthed in the gardens over the years, from fob watches to oriental currency, and can be found on display around the house. Do you know where the best view of Melbourne actually is? It's in your rear-view mirror ;) More
