Sparkling Sunraysia gems from yesteryear in hot demand. Buyers from as far as Queensland, Sydney and Geelong are eyeing a unique Mildura lifestyle property for sale in the heart of the Sunraysia countryside.

Within hours of hitting the market, the two-bedroom period home on 1.13ha at 3502 San Mateo Avenue (pictured above and below), attracted enquiries from far and wide, according to Barry Plant Mildura director Tense Venneri.

“It's hot property,” he said.

“So, we expect super busy opens and for it to sell quickly.”

Its mid-range price of $480,000-$528,000, period character and country charm are among the many features captivating first-home buyers, young couples, families looking for extra space, and retirees wanting a tree-change.

Built around 1910, the house was moved at some point from its original site in Mildura’s city centre to its current location, about 12km away, according to Mr Venneri.

“It’s now in a rural setting and in great condition,” he said.

“Many original features have been retained and seamlessly blend with modern additions.”

Nestled at the end of a long driveway, the house makes a striking statement with its high-pitched roof, sweeping verandas and double-hung windows with plantation shutters.

Pressed metal ceilings and walls adorn the interior, where rich Baltic pine floors and ornate fireplaces bring character and warmth.

Relax with family and friends in the lounge room or in the spacious living, dining and kitchen zone, where french doors open to outdoor entertainment areas.

Take in views of the tranquil landscape from the back deck or the brick-paved pergola and barbecue area, set in a landscaped garden with lawn.

A home chef’s delight, the country-style kitchen is equipped with quality appliances, timber benchtops and ample storage space.

There are two bedrooms, including the main with an ensuite, a main bathroom, plus the year-round comfort with split-system air conditioning.

Other features include paddocks for sheep or horses, a vegetable patch, orchard, shed, solar panels for energy efficiency, and ample water supply.

“This affordable property isn't just a home, it’s a lifestyle,” Mr Venneri said.

“It’s an idyllic retreat which is a little different from the norm.”

Mr Venneri said there was strong interest from local and city buyers for character homes in Mildura, including the solid three-bedroom period home at 328-332 Eleventh Street (pictured below).

Up for auction on December 9 with $780,000-$858,000 price hopes, the elegant 1923 Arts and Crafts gem is a rare find.

Located at the intersection of Toorak Drive and the prestigious Golden Mile, it displays distinctive character on a vast 1910sq m block with dual frontage, a rear lane and two titles.

Warm and welcoming, the interior includes formal lounge and dining areas with high ornate ceilings, bay windows, jarrah floors and exquisite timber detailing.

Two bedrooms open to a sunroom, the perfect place to relax and take in views of the established garden.

In addition to the main house, there is an adjoining self-contained two-bedroom unit with a lounge area, kitchen, bathroom, laundry and separately metered power. It is ideal for extended family members, independent children or tenants.

The property will appeal to families, period-home lovers or those wanting to embark on a restoration or development project.
