Wirilda - Old World Charm Meets Modern ConvenienceA rare opportunity to own a slice of Vermont history, "Wirilda" is a peaceful cottage with all the charm of a bygone era but with the comforts of today.
Built in the late 1890s (approx.) for Miss Marjorie Herring (aunt to Sir Edmund Herring, former Lieutenant-Governor of Victoria), the home has had three owners and been carefully extended and updated over time. This includes the addition of two bedrooms and an ensuite in the 1960s, and a carport and pergola in the 1980s.
A single-level double brick home, it features terracotta roof tiles, leadlight windows and beautiful woodwork throughout. A formal sitting room has high ceilings and a brick fireplace as well as glass doors that lead through to a dining room and casual living space. There are three comfortable bedrooms plus a flexible fourth bedroom/study option and two bathrooms.
Sited on 921sqm (approx.), the home is encased in a lush, English-style garden which naturally flourishes in the spring. The azaleas, rhododendrons and cumquats are originals as are many of the hydrangeas. Newer shrubs and small trees have been selected to retain the character and style of the garden.
