Imperial House In is a wonderful four bedroom Edwardian home in the heart of Hepburn Springs. Originally located and moved from Caulfield, South East of Melbourne, the property sits beautifully in the landscape, the architecture in keeping with many other properties built at the turn of the century after the mineral springs reserve gained increased patronage when Daylesford was connected by railway to Melbourne via Woodend in 1880. A spa bathhouse was opened in 1894 and in 1908 Hepburn Springs Pavilion was opened.
Completely restored to its original grandeur retaining all it's original features including traditional high ceilings and spacious rooms, the property has been enhanced to make the most of the location with lush interiors and features. The addition of two sets of bi fold doors that open onto your own balcony and BBQ area features serene and sweeping views across the Hepburn forest.
Designer furniture, antique lights and artwork from the owner's private collection adorn every room. A large kitchen filled with all your essentials will have you staying in to enjoy lunches or dinners at the beautiful dining table taking in the gorgeous views, or enjoying the warmth and atmosphere from the Scandinavian fireplace in the lounge. One ensuite bathroom and shower and a separate bathroom and shower cater to groups, families, couples, girls or wedding parties preparing for that special day. Interior decorating throughout is by Louisa Roth.
For those wanting fresh air, pampering and gentle exercise, a beautiful 15 min walk from the property to the famed Hepburn bathhouse will take you past the General Store for breakfast and a coffee or to pick up a picnic hamper to indulge in after a soak in the healing waters. Unwind at a whole new level and remember to take your empty bottles to fill up with mineral rich water from the pumps at the mineral springs reserve.
Or use this great location as a base to explore, jump in the car, and drop into the action of the main street in Daylesford with shops and cafes galore only a 5-minute drive in one direction. Or travel in any direction to explore the whole region and all it has to offer.
