Cousin Gilbert | 5 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms | Penthouse-style Living in the Heart of Daylesford
A remarkable property situated in the thriving heart of Daylesford. Cousin Gilbert is one of the few homes that truly manages to stand out amidst the plethora of gorgeous lodgings that Daylesford has on offer. From the spectacular pond and lush garden to the stylish interiors, Cousin Gilbert represents a slice of penthouse life tucked away in regional Victoria.
Cousin Gilbert's interior spaces are a cut above what can be expected of even the nicest country getaway. The home enjoys a unified design aesthetic, with dark furnishings providing a beautiful contrast against crisp white walls and luxurious carpet. Uniquely, it boasts two Kitchens and multiple Living and Dining areas. In the lounge, chic seating arrangements and a gas-log fireplace make for a cosy but sophisticated atmosphere. Iconic images from pop culture grace the walls in the form of paintings and prints, striking yet unobtrusive.
The adjoining dining area enjoys warmth from the same double-sided fireplace as the lounge. This room features an elegant glass table, and yet more beautiful artworks. Natural light filters in through large windows, both in the dining and living rooms. The sparkling clean kitchens come equipped with all the necessary appliances and are just as stylish as the rest of the home with sleek countertops and black tile splash-backs. There is a further Sitting Room with large screen television and a breakfast area.
Guests will find themselves smitten with the property's cosy bedrooms. These rooms are beautifully furnished, illuminated by natural light and feature beds with high quality mattresses. Some even have French doors that provide access to the exterior of the home.
Cousin Gilbert boasts one of the most spectacular garden and outdoor spaces of any property in the Daylesford region. A serene pond, smelling of fresh water and plants, lies between the house and a grove of established magnolia trees. The upper garden is surrounded by a high hedge, featuring a beautiful array of flowers and plants. The home also offers expansive outdoor spaces including an artificial grassed roof terrace furnished with seating and tables, utterly perfect for meals and entertaining at any time of day or night.
Ideally located in the centre of town, guests will find themselves perfectly situated to explore the cafes, restaurants, galleries and specialty stores of this cultural epicentre. Not to be forgotten, the natural splendour of country Victoria can be found on display at the Wombat Hill Botanic Garden, or along the banks of the placid lake Daylesford.
Those looking to Daylesford for a country retreat can do no better than to nestle in at Cousin Gilbert, where penthouse elegance meets the peace and quiet of regional Victoria.
