From an original treasure to Utopia; behold the story of Radbone House…
Best offers by 12pm Wednesday 28th November (unless sold prior)
To truly appreciate Radbone House, you have to know its story, the one that started in the early 1900s with nothing but a humble cottage that would lay idle for decades flanked only by paddocks…
Enter the current owners of 37 years, who took one of Mount George’s first homes and transformed it into a utopia to treasure on some 12 acres across two titles.
The ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots are something to behold; proving that paradise can be curated. But only with years of hard work.
It all made way for lush rolling lawns, a mix of mature native and exotic plantings, fruit trees, ducks gliding over shaded dams, and a kaleidoscope of colours…
The magical preamble to an extended cottage with the shedding/workshops to welcome all manner of leisurely pursuits and a John Andrews-designed master suite to savour.
The integrity of the original cottage was maintained and matched in an extension that doubled the internal footprint to create a free-flowing journey from formal lounge to hand-forged timber kitchen to that master suite with huge walk-in dressing room and two-person spa.
Coffered ceilings, eclectic colour schemes, a library for your leather bounds, and a huge open fireplace all feature in a 2-3-bedroom original home.
The stained solid pine of the large kitchen was sourced from the very dress factory depicted in old black and white photos on the walls.
As the combustion fire warms the kitchen and casual meals zone, sit by a big bay window begging for a good book with bore-fed-garden views in tow.
A separate studio with a bedroom, lounge room and boundless potential overlooking a vine-covered pergola with a bit of Tuscany about it. The story continues…
And it gets better and better:
– Shedding galore – including machinery/utility sheds, garages, pottery barn, woodshed and more.
– Corian topped vanity, tessellated tiling and raised spa to stunning ensuite
– Custom joinery/storage to huge dressing room
– Original façade was updated in keeping with era-sympathetic extension
– Walk-in pantry, dishwasher and electric cooktop to kitchen
– Double carport and onsite parking for many cars
– Drinkable bore to beautifully presented gardens
– Three dams
– Cellar and under-house storage
– Sun room/sleep out to original home
– Just a 7-minute drive from the heart of Stirling.
