- add to my shortlist
Built in 1889-90 above the orchards at Picnic Point, "Cairnholme" is one of Bairnsdale's most distinguished residences and is reluctantly, however genuinely, for sale. The current custodians of this impressive property have proudly retained ownership for the past 46 years and have done a remarkable job in lovingly maintaining the home's original finishes.
This magnificent home affects an imposing stature with its Italianate architectural features and elegant gardens that overlook the Mitchell River flats. The property has a tremendous history and one only has to stroll through its impressive 14-foot ceilinged rooms and hallways to sense the splendour and romance of a bygone era.
The home comprises five bedrooms, including the separate downstairs living quarters, and separate study. The formal dining leads into the grand ballroom that extends outside onto the superb wrap around verandah, which takes in remarkable views that extend east along the Mitchell River flats.
There are three bathrooms; two upstairs and one downstairs and a comfortable kitchen and informal living area. Most rooms have retained the original fireplaces, which are all operational; two tastefully finished in marble.
The home is set on approximately 1.5 acres and is complemented by the handsomely landscaped grounds that include a huge in-ground pool and alfresco dining, small workshop areas and a large covered carport that can amply accommodate three vehicles.
This home speaks for itself and it is an absolute pleasure and privilege to present this property for sale. Inspections are strictly by appointment only.
