Property Description

This property is currently not available.

Elvins House represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a country residence rich in history within the heart of Victoria’s vibrant Goldfields region. Perfect as a fine principal family residence, weekend escape, or an exciting cosmetic
restoration project, the Artist’s House at Elvin’s has exciting possibilities.

Elvins House is an historic local landmark residence. The property is associated with the early years of the settlement of Campbells Creek township and James Elvins – head teacher of Campbells Creek State School No 120 from 1873 –
1883. This mid-Victorian home was built in c.1873 for James Elvins on land granted in 1865 to J. Denny and extended in the 1890’s by subsequent owners. Elvins has been the family home and artists’ studio to the current owner for the past 20 years.

The 170m2 home retains all the architectural features associated with a residence of the Victorian period, including hipped roof, tall chimneys, double-hung windows, solid joinery, high ceilings, wide floorboards and skirting boards, panalled doors, fireplaces and a deep verandah.

The interior of the house is elegant and all rooms are beautifully appointed and well-proportioned. The main entry leads to three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, separate powder room, formal and informal living rooms, charming kitchen, large studio and extensive storage. Rumour has it that a sealed cellar beneath the house has not been opened in decades. This home is ready for an exciting cosmetic restoration.

The rambling garden is equally impressive. The 3249m2 corner allotment is laid out with mature exotic, native and deciduous trees, flower beds, fruiting trees, formal grassed areas, pathways and large garden sheds. Birdlife is abundant and the house is set back providing privacy. The property has all town services.

Elvins House is located in the Central Victorian township of Campbells Creek – within the heart of Victoria’s important historic Goldfields region. Campbells Creek has a vibrant artistic community and is a township blessed with numerous recreational facilities, including local swimming pool, golf course, bowling green, tennis courts and sporting oval. The township also claims the largest known score in Australian rules football, when Campbells Creek Football Club beat Primrose Football Club 100.34 goals (634 points) to 3 goals (18 points) in 1990!!!!

Campbells Creek is positioned in one of Victoria’s strong tourism growth regions, 4km South of Castlemaine, 40km South of Bendigo and 120km North West of Melbourne. The area is known for leading restaurants and cafes, art galleries, bookstores, schools, antique stores, plant nurseries, award-winning wineries, as well as regional markets, festivals and events.

This is an outstanding opportunity to embrace country life and own a remarkable historic home in one of country Victoria’s most vibrant regional areas.
