Henrietta's is grand Art Deco home, one of only two original substantial redbrick houses built in Chewton. An eclectic mix of antique persian rugs, chinoiserie artworks, empire style furnishings, bespoke bathroom mural and high art deco ceilings make for an elegant and fascinating visual experience.
Enjoy total privacy as you have the entire house to yourselves!
Visit the Wesley Hill Market on a Saturday morning and cook up a storm in the fully appointed kitchen!
Laze on the verandah and watch the cockatoos vie with corellas for best spot in the enormous gum trees!
Immediately nearby there are walking tracks through forests with abundant wildlife, goldfields and historical sites. Only 2 minutes drive to Castlemaine and the cafe/foodie/arts/events always on offer year round.
An ideal weekend retreat from the noise of the city!
Named for the lady the house was built for early last century, Henrietta's sits atop a site rich in Goldfields history. Over a hundred and fifty years ago the location was reputedly home to a surgeon, a pub, a Cobb & Co depot and a couple of other small titles. Numerous archeological curious have been unearthed in the gardens over the years, from fob watches to oriental currency, and can be found on display around the house.
The entire house and outdoor/paved area immediately behind it.
