65, Talbot Road, Clunes, VIC 3370

50s Brick home on 854sqm

This much loved, red clinker brick, house was built in the style of post war 1950s and has had only two owners. With 4 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom with separate WC, huge gardens, abundant fruit trees and double garage, it eagerly awaits the astute renovator with a love of the quality and aesthetics of yesteryear, to maximise its potential and turn it into something magnificent.

Built with much devotion, 65 Talbot Rd contains samples of true craftsmanship, with wooden panelling throughout the hallway, picture rails, architraves, original Bakelite door and cupboard, handles as well as showcasing original and stunning art deco lighting. There are wooden floor boards beneath the carpet, plus original lino from the 50’s. The most glorious feature of the kitchen is the large wood stove which comes with the original booklet and sales receipt from Myers.

The piece de resistance of the property is the glorious natural pond with a bounty of white, yellow and mauve water flowers, and at one end, a cascading waterfall. The pond was dug deep enough to accommodate two people to sit in it on very hot days. The friendly, goldfish relaxedly swim up to any visitor. For those less enthusiastic about sitting IN the pond, there are rocks around the perimeter for seating and submerged ledges around the inside walls upon which to rest one’s feet.

There are numerous thriving fruit trees, roses bushes and various flowering shrubs currently growing in the spacious front and back gardens including: Geraniums, lavender bushes, trees including oak, olive, apricot, fig, black mulberry, white mulberry, chestnut, pomegranate, lemon, Ballerina apple, cling peach, cherry trees, cherry plum trees, and jasmine threaded throughout an arbour, over the front path. The delightful bottle brush tree attracts tiny yellow, black and white, silver eyed birds, parrots and parakeets.

There is a huge, secure chicken enclosure which contains a “bedroom” with nesting boxes. In the al fresco living area is a large and bright yellow wattle tree offering shade in the summer and partial coverage in times of rain for the feathered occupants.

At the furthest end of the property is a double car garage with shelves and benches around the walls and storage capacity over the rafters. A large roller door leads to the side street and for the motor enthusiast, there is a mechanic’s pit with which to access the underside of any vehicle in need of attention.
