Grand Victorian Residence in Central Bairnsdale

'Henley' is being offered for sale for the first time in 25 years. This landmark property was built on a grand scale in the 1870's and 80's, and has been lovingly updated over the years to provide a high level of comfortable accommodation.

Originally built for Joseph Day, district pioneer, prominent businessman, Shire Councillor and Shire President. Brimming with history at every turn, inspecting this home is a delight for students of architecture and lovers of old homes.
Consisting of 6 bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuites, main bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining/living area, formal dining room, library and ballroom.

The ballroom has proportions befitting the name, and was the scene of many 'high society' gatherings in the early days of Bairnsdale. Dame Nelly Melba is said to have sung here on a visit to the area!

The home measures some 35 squares, with a room for every possible purpose. Most of the original features are intact, and in excellent condition. High ceilings, elaborate cornices and ceiling roses, fireplaces with overmantels, everything you would expect to find in a stately Victorian home.

The property has a versatile floorplan, and has been successfully utilised as a high class B&B in the past. It serves equally well in both guises; Large family home, or 2 B&B suites with a 4 bedroom residence attached.

On a generous 1329 sqm block, with a 25 metre frontage to Service Street, and driveway (on title) to Francis Street. Access to the backyard and garaging is excellent, with plenty of turning room for trailers, large boats, caravans etc. The eclectic old style shedding (the stables in the early days) was previously home to the owner's vintage car collection, and is blessed with such desirable mancave necessities as a toilet, shower and kitchenette.

There are only a handful of these significant early Bairnsdale homes remaining. Here is your 'once in a generation' opportunity to secure one of them.
