Quintessential Daylesford Miners Cottage
Fall in love with Olive Cottage. As showcased in the September 2020 issue of Country Style Magazine, made up of delicate proportions this bright and sun-soaked home with two decking areas set on 795sqm just minutes from Daylesford is a perfect getaway.
The home dates back to the 1890s and is nestled on the edge of the historic gold fields on the edge of the Wombat State Forest. Step inside, and you enter a haven of calm and peaceful surroundings. The front garden is showcased by the manicured buxus and a weeping cherry tree, gravel path and eye-catching yellow front door. This pretty as a picture home with weatherboard cladding, plantation shutters, filigree framed veranda, north facing deck and native bush outlook is quintessential Daylesford.
Cosy up in the lounge with wood heater and French doors leading onto the
north deck. The dining room is showcased by an abundance of natural light with wall-to-wall bookshelves and the showpiece stove sitting in the old fireplace. The original floorboards stained dark and oaky, are complemented by the beautiful, pressed tin walls which are also original. The bathroom blends the period romanticism with the modern creature comforts with its northern aspect, gold tapware and clawfoot bath.
The 2 double bedrooms on the southside are beautifully presented with neutral colour
palettes, the master with cupboard space. The timber craftmanship in the galley kitchen is evident, and the café-servery window to the rear deck allows for easy entertaining.
The deck itself looks at the wombat forest beyond you can relax with family and friends and watch the shadows framed by majestic eucalypts and endless native plantings.
For those that want to work from home, there is also a home office/studio which
gives you endless options for utilising the space.
The cottage has been successful on the holiday let market, then as a permanent home. Olive Cottage makes you want to sit down, breath out and never leave.
