Maldon’s own Travel Guides Kevin and Janetta put historic home on the market

The stunning Gold Rush home of reality TV regulars Kevin Moloney and Janetta Stones has been listed for sale in the historic village of Maldon, Victoria as the couple prepare for their next adventure and the upcoming third season of Channel Nine’s hit series – Travel Guides.

Reality TV regulars Kevin Moloney and Janetta Stones have put their beautiful Maldon home on the market ahead of a new adventure.

‘The Brambles’ was originally built in 1856 as the manager’s residence and assayer’s office to the town’s South German mine.

Kevin and Janetta purchased the home in 2000, sympathetically renovating and extending it to create a contemporary house within the walls of the unique heritage building.

The couple said they felt it was essential to retain the home’s unique character while still incorporating all of the luxuries you’d expect from a modern country retreat.

“Entering the front parlour is like stepping back in time,” Ms Stones said.

“You’re instantly greeted with authentic polished Baltic pine floors, an original open fireplace for winter warmth and imported Morris wallpaper circa 1900, while a secret door conceals our modern master suite, leaving guests none the wiser about what lies beyond.

“We love to entertain, so there’s an inviting loft retreat for visiting friends with a private bathroom and its own balcony.

“Catering for dinner guests is easy in the re-imagined kitchen with modern appliances, and the landscaped gardens boast dozens of zones to wine and dine, including a refreshing swimming pool and deck.”

Barry Plant Real Estate Bendigo’s sales manager, Ben Harper, said there was strong demand for properties like ‘The Brambles’ in central Victoria.

“Recently, we’ve noticed an increase in metropolitan buyers, with people starting to look beyond the city for affordable homes and a better work/life balance,” said Mr Harper.

“Towns in central Victoria are well-placed to handle the growth with emerging job opportunities in the health and community sector and financial industry, and steady work in the area’s traditional agriculture and manufacturing industries.

“Lifestyle is also an important consideration; central Victoria boasts a new world-class hospital in Bendigo, quality schools, easy commutes and close-knit communities.

“For buyers looking for a weekend escape, travelling to and from the region is easy thanks to upgrades to train services between Bendigo and Melbourne (including regular services to and from Maldon) and frequent flights to Sydney out of Bendigo airport.”

Kevin and Janetta agree, adding they first moved to the region as weekend visitors attracted by the area’s famous wineries, galleries, bushwalking and gold-rush architecture of Australia’s first notable town, but soon knew Maldon was the perfect place to call home.

So, with such a beautiful home base, you might be tempted to ask why Kevin and Janetta are keen to move on.

“After owning ‘The Brambles’ for close to 20 years, we’re looking for new adventure – both here in Maldon and abroad,” the couple said.

“We’ve got big plans for another renovation project here in Maldon, reinvigorating another local home brimming with history…and of course, we have plenty of travel in our future with a few sneaky trips of our own.”

‘The Brambles’, 86 South German Road, Maldon is currently listed with Barry Plant Real Estate in Bendigo for offers of $690,000 – $710,000*.
