LIFESTYLE & FAMILY SUBSTANCE WITH PHILIP COX ARCHITECTURAL MASTERPIECE HOMESTEAD ON 10.37 HA / 25 ACRES AT KILMORE'S TOWN EDGE
A quality lifestyle property in Kilmore's dress circle. Located at 230 Mill Road, is barely 2.5 km from the centre of Kilmore township and with easy access to the Hume Freeway and an easily commutable distance from the city.

The homestead is thought to be the only home in Victoria to the credit of one of Australia's pre-eminent architects Philip Cox. AO, born 1939. The vendors are only the second owners of the home that was built in 1995.

The homestead with some fifty-eight squares providing eight bedrooms, has a distinctive Colorbond steel roof and is timber framed with western red cedar cladding.

In effect it offers a modern central kitchen, meals and entertaining area with a separate children's zone at one end, plus a self-contained master bedroom and services and a separate study/ guest accommodation area at the opposite end.

Also adjoining is a separate two bedroom self-contained living unit.

Internally, the north facing sunlit home is spacious with extensive glassed areas that create impressive sight lines both throughout the building and to the rural exterior.

With eight bedrooms the home is perfect for entertaining.

There is a mezzanine level that provides a relaxation, study or music area with most of the timber lined peaked ceilings providing a distinctive aura.

There is also a large brick fireplace in the principal lounge room that adequately heats the living areas and a high-end quality kitchen which has recently been significantly refurbished with Italian appliances including two ovens.

The bedrooms in the children's areas are fully serviced with built in robes and student desks.

The vendors have recently completed a detailed refurbishment including repainting and re-carpeting throughout so that the homestead presents impressively, ready to move in and enjoy.

The homestead is sited in an extensive garden area with established grassed and treed areas, with an adjacent in-ground solar heated salt water swimming pool and an in-ground trampoline.

The land area is 10.37 HA or 25 acres of pasture, with the homestead overlooking a major lake. When filled it takes up an area of ten acres and is of historic significance.

The original Kilmore railway station, discontinued in the 1960's when the early cross-country line to Heathcote and Bendigo was closed, (and replaced by a new Metro and V/Line station at Kilmore East for commuters) the lake stored the water that was used to top up the steam trains that stopped at the original station.

There is a fully equipped bore in place that produces high quality sweet water that is used for garden watering or to top up the three large concrete underground tanks that service the homestead.

There is ready access to the notable educational resources including Assumption College and the Kilmore International School.

The vendors have used the home as comfortable and efficient family living with an easy 45minute commute to their business in Melbourne's northern suburbs by the Hume Freeway and the Metropolitan Ring Road.

The homestead itself makes a distinctive architectural statement, having only ever had two owners to whom it has demonstrated excellent liveability and practicability.

"Properties of this substance and magnitude for relaxed family living are rarely offered for sale."
