“Lakeleigh” is a much admired, landmark property located right on the foreshore of picturesque Lake Daylesford, with magical views from every room to the lake & the village beyond.
Daylesford is a small country town, an easy 90 minutes drive west from Melbourne. It’s famous for its natural mineral springs and spas. The historic town has many interesting buildings, shops, art galleries, wineries and restaurants.
In a nutshell Lakeleigh is a classic, cosy, charming country style house in a magical setting.
It comprises 2 bedrooms upstairs upstairs each with a balcony overlooking the lake (sleeps 2 queen or 1 queen and 2 singles), 2 bathrooms, a conservatory currently furnished as the dining room, a sitting room and a living room, plus kitchen and laundry. Outdoors there’s a stone terrace and a deck. Equipped with gas log fire, reverse cycle heating and cooling in sitting and living rooms, conservatory and both upstair’s bedrooms.
Lakeleigh’s charm and character is achieved through an abundance of architectural details such as dormer windows & coved ceilings in the bedrooms, exposed ceiling beams, louvered white timber shutters, an English style conservatory, stone & timber floors, a sandstone fireplace & mantelpiece, & a bespoke limed timber fitted kitchen.
For entertaining the floor plan flows inside, connecting the kitchen, living room, conservatory and sitting room – and when the French doors are opened onto the terrace, the outside and inside become one.
It’s a garden for all seasons with direct access to the lake. In spring there are masses of bulbs including daffodils & tulips. When the weather cools down rich autumnal colours kick in, & in winter the hellebores cover the ground & the camellias are at their best.
