Ideally located in the historically rich township of Mortlake, "Cairnlea" offers an enviable lifestyle within easy driving distance of both Melbourne and the coast.
The 16-acre property dates back to the 1850s when the home was first built, but don't be fooled by its early era as the gracious bluestone former farm homestead has been delightfully modernised throughout to create the perfect family living home today.
The homestead is elevated on the slopes of Mount Shadwell with a commanding view over the Mortlake township and rural Western Victoria. With five bedrooms and both informal and formal dining and living rooms this charming home is built for both entertaining and living.
The open-plan and sunlit north and easterly facing kitchen/meals and living area offers outstanding views towards Mount Elephant, while the adjacent formal dining room is capable of seating up to 16. A formal sitting room with a open fire overlooks the township through a large bay window.
With no shortage of picturesque scenery, the stunning vistas continue through to main bedroom, which also features a recently renovated large en suite. The family bathroom has also been renovated and is perfectly situated to bedrooms two and three, also both generous in size.
"Cairnlea" is pleasantly set in outstanding gardens and grounds that feature mature elm and ash trees, peppercorns and pencil pines, as well as hedges, roses and an asphalt tennis court.
The property is ideally set up for the horse enthusiast on fertile country with an abundance of water, as well as a stable of four boxes and yards, and two dedicated horse paddocks.
