Birregurra - Historic Homestead “Elliminook”
Set in Delightful Country Garden on 30 Hectares - 74 Acres
Historic Elliminook homestead awaits
Set in delightful country gardens on 30 hectares (74 acres) of some of the best land in the district, the historic homestead Elliminook was built in 1865 by "Brickie Pell" for John Davenport Bromfield.
It is built mostly of patterned Flemish bond brickwork with a roof of slate and iron.
The now contemporary home has been designed around a magnificent central courtyard. There is a beautiful sitting room with marble fireplace and a formal dining room both featuring tall ceilings typical of the era. A west facing glass conservatory overlooks the paved courtyard and rosary.
The country kitchen has a Rayburn wood burning stove which is coupled to hydronic heating that extends throughout the home. There is an adjoining study and a butlers pantry. "Elliminook" features six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Two bedrooms adjoin a lounge and kitchen which provides an opportunity for this area to be employed as a self-contained apartment.
"Elliminook" offers a wonderfully gracious lifestyle or to reopen its successful B&B.
Included is a wine cellar, tennis court, croquet lawn pavilion, large award winning garden, stock yards, shedding and six paddocks. Town water is connected and supplemented by 125,000 litre tank capacity and a dam.
It is conveniently situated within walking distance of Birregurra's charming main street and the popular coastal resort of Lorne on the Great Ocean Road is only a 30 minute drive.
