A 163-year-old former Kyneton church house that’s been resurrected as a divine family home has hit the market.
The landmark four-bedroom house on a substantial 1699sq m block at 41 Ebden St has a $1.45-$1.59 million price guide.
Set in Kyneton’s exclusive bluestone precinct, The Parsonage is flanked by heavenly gardens.
Jellis Craig’s Tom May said the property had attracted interest from local and Melbourne buyers.
“It has resonated well with buyers because of its position, history and modern extension,” he said.
The property originally accommodated clergymen who led the congregation at the heritage-listed Presbyterian Church next door.
The house includes the original bluestone parsonage built in 1856, a classic Victorian brick facade from the 1880s, and an extension created in recent times.
Mr May said the architect-designed extension brought the house into the 21st century.
“It works brilliantly harmonising the three eras,” he said.
The renovated house has a flexible floorplan that allows for three or four bedrooms.
There is a spacious living and dining area that’s ideal for entertaining, plus a formal lounge room with a gas log fireplace.
The home also includes an oversized garage with abundant storage space, hydronic heating, reverse-cycle heating and cooling, solar panels and a cellar.
Mr May said since buying the property about 10 years ago, the owners had developed a prize-winning garden that had been recognised at local festivals.
It features a circular rose garden, manicured hedges, fruit trees and a vegetable patch.
“There are a variety of specimen plants and significant trees, including a magnificent cedar,” Mr May added.
