Lucini's Macaroni Factory circa 1859
Built by Italian Immigrants, the Lucini Brothers in 1859, this large heritage listed property is classic Italian architecture with beautiful features of a bygone era. While used until the 1930s as a Macaroni Factory, its last incarnation was an Italian restaurant seating approx. 80 people across three rooms, one with a bar so could easily move to a Function/Wine/Cocktail Space in a perfect location in the heart of Hepburn Springs. Sit outside under the arbor covered with vines, pick some vegetables and herbs or sip a glass of champagne while playing a game of Bocce, the choice is yours. An art gallery would be stunning or you may wish to have a wonderful residence in Australia’s premium spa destination. The main residence comprises 6 rooms downstairs with the original kitchen and pasta rooms, two large function/living spaces, a kitchen with 90cm gas cook top and electric oven and dry store area, and has two bedrooms with sitting room upstairs. “Lucini’s Flat” of 4 rooms has the original kitchen with working wood fired oven and fire place and has its own paved outdoor area. This property, steeped in history of the Swiss Italian foundations of our great region, is a rare opportunity. Minutes from cafes, restaurants, walking tracks and the fabulous Hepburn Bathhouse and only 5 mins to Daylesford.
