Built in 1868 for pioneer Stawell storekeeper John Wakeham, this period home is now 152 years old.
The home today offers some more modern creature comforts, but undoubtedly would be a pleasure to call home. Features include the ornate plaster work, 13-foot ceilings, a striking marble fire place, beautiful protective verandahs and the large underground cellar.
The home has three bedrooms two of which have French doors opening to the verandah and all with built in robes and carpet and one has a split system.
The renovated bathroom offers a separate bath, shower recess, vanity and toilet with a second toilet located in the laundry out back.
The lounge has an as new combustion heater plus a reverse cycle split system and adjoins the kitchen dining area which has also had a face lift in the past few years.
The kitchen opens to a stunning undercover barbecue area which also provides the entry point to the cellar.
On a large allotment of some 1400 square metres, there is a carport, garage/workshop, and gardens.
