Bairnsdale, 1 Bredt Street

- add to my shortlist
One of the town's most notable residences is reluctantly, however, genuinely for sale. Taking its grand stature above Picnic Point in Bairnsdale and overlooking the river flats downstream along the Mitchell River, "Cairnholme" is a majestic home built in a romantic era.
The home was originally built in 1889-90 for Mr David Potter, one of Bairnsdale's first ironmongers. To this day, and the most recent ownership of the property has been tightly held by one of Bairnsdale's well renowned local Doctors for the last 46 years.
The property has a tremendous history, and one only has to stroll through many formal rooms and hallways, all with the 14 foot high ceilings to imagine the grand nature of such a building at the turn of the century. The current custodians have done a remarkable job in keeping the home in excellent condition and in better than original finish.
The home has as many as 5 bedrooms including the separate living quarter's downstairs, separate study, formal dining and a formal ball room that extends out onto the large wrap around veranda taking in the amazing views extending down the river and flats. There are two bathroom's upstairs and one down stairs, and a comfortable kitchen living area. Most rooms have the original fireplaces intact, two with marble finishes and still operational to this day.
The home is set on approximately one and a half acres of delightful landscaped grounds that compliment the property. There is a huge in-ground pool and BBQ area along with small workshops and covered carport below, large enough for three vehicles.
It is an absolute pleasure to be able to present this property for sale and it speaks for itself.
Inspections are strictly by appointment only. Please direct genuine enquiries to Michael Enever 0458272797.
