Listed by the National Trust of Victoria, the Old Rectory is a luxury, three-bedroom house for up to six adult guests, located in Kyneton’s historic town centre. Set in almost half an acre of stunning garden, with a large 160-year-old walnut tree a significant feature, the Old Rectory is built of local stone with a mix of late Georgian and Victorian colonial architectural features.
Furnishings, light fittings and art work are a mix of antique and contemporary and the house has Wi Fi, hydronic heating and air-conditioning throughout.
Beautifully maintained mature gardens with dining and seating choices surround the Old Rectory. The garden itself is designed around ‘rooms’ such as the sunken garden, parterre garden, secret garden and fernery, separated by Pittosporum, Cypress, English Box and Myrtus hedging.
Step outside the grounds of the Old Rectory and you are in the heart of Kyneton’ Piper Street restaurant, bar and retail precinct.
