“When injured Woodend War heroes came home, they had a place to go”.
Although then a far cry from the magnificent home Lynburn has become, swathed in superlative finish and enjoying voluminous modern north-facing living spaces, the spirit of the home has remained the same; a place of comfort and solidity that embraces you with its warmth and character.
Excellently positioned in a leafy neighbourhood a few minutes’ walk from Woodend railway station, supermarket and town centre, stunning street-appeal proclaims Lynburn’s inviting presence to passers-by.
Completely transformed by the current owners, understated elegance has been augmented by high quality fittings like the enviable Character-filled ‘Old English country designer kitchen’ with a magnificent blackbutt island benchtop, Ilve commercial 900mm range and two additional Bosch microwave/convection/infrared ovens in the exclusive butler’s pantry.
Some of the impressive features include Caesarstone benchtops, an antique built-in butchers block, Asko dishwasher, a huge master en-suite bathroom with roomy rain shower, separate freestanding French tub and French double vanity. Year-round comfort is guaranteed by four chimneyed fireplaces, superb Floreal ornate cast iron hydronic heating radiators, a feature gas fireplace in the master bedroom, reverse-cycle air conditioning, additional under-floor and ceiling insulation and double glazing.
Wide verandahs and an eight-foot wide, light-filled entrance hallway with original feature fretwork compliment the recently completed high-quality full restoration, renovation and extension, masterfully engineered in complete harmony with the original homestead and retaining many unique historical features.
This delightful home is “light-filled and airy” with soaring twelve to thirteen-foot high ceilings, newly polished Baltic pine floors, gorgeous French shutters, high quality feature light fittings, feature bay windows with extensive storage, a Nectre baker’s oven in kitchen under an original brick inglenook, double butler’s sink, a separate light-filled study off master bedroom and large separate WIR /dressing room with ample additional storage
Even the shed is a wonder to behold! 9mx 18m (4.5m at its apex) with its very own billiards area, workshop and 6m sliding doors, easily accommodating nine classic cars (if you will). A large laundry/mud room, spotted gum deck and paved entertaining area, three separate water tanks with pumps providing a total of 5000 litres of water, twin remote controlled motorised entrance gates, circular driveway, fully lockable pedestrian gate, fully fenced rear yard and a comprehensive CCTV security system around the house all further enhance value and appeal.
Stunning formal gardens featuring beautiful old oaks, towering eucalyptus, mulberry and others, a separate small orchard, extensive vegetable planters and separate potters shed will help you to enjoy Woodend’s agreeable ‘northern European’ climate.
‘Lynburn’ has earned many accolades during its time in Woodend including that of acting as the local hospital caring for returned war heroes, and raising numbers of local families. Most mornings, the local Kookaburras, rosellas and varied birdlife enjoy the spacious grounds, wide lawns and stunning shady tree canopies of the beautifully established grounds.
