Highly skilled and professional

When the vendor at 5 Camp Street Daylesford made the decision to sell he knew he needed to find an experienced agent.

Having lovingly restored Goodman House, one of the finest properties in the district, over the past 18 years he wanted someone who could appreciate how unique the property was and who was skilled enough to handle a sale of this size and nature.

Tom Robertson came highly recommended and made the trip to Daylesford to see the property the day the vendor called. He describes Tom as highly skilled and professional, respectful of his wishes when it came to the specifics of the sale process, and absolutely discrete.

Tom recommended some minor works be taken care of before listing the property and was able to work around the vendor’s requirements in terms of price and marketing. Within a month the property was on the market and within just three weeks, it had sold.

The vendor says he was thrilled not only with the swift sale but also with the buyers, who he says understood and appreciated the property.

Goodman House Historic Precinct Daylesford

Set at the foot of the Daylesford Botanic Gardens, with premium views across a town loved for its distinct European flavour, Goodman House offers its inhabitants stylish, private living.

Goodman House, named after Archie Goodman, the town Mayor who lived and entertained Melbourne luminaries here during the 1950’s, was built in nearby Hepburn Springs in 1890 and moved to Daylesford, in one piece in 1910. It had barely been touched before the current owner undertook to breathe new life into the old home. A 70 year old Japanese maple in the back yard inspired the addition of the spectacular steel-framed conservatory with a splendid finial left over from the restoration of the 1880 Royal Exhibition Building.  A striking feature of the conservatory is the Turkish tiled wall, paying homage to the interior design of Ottoman imperial harems of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Goodman house is positioned in Camp Street, within walking distance of the shopping centre, fine dining establishments such as Mercato and Kazuki, the old Convent, Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens and the Hospital. Yet once you are inside the house it is like being enfolded in a cocoon. The outside world becomes oblivious. The choice is yours! You can choose to engage or close the front door and live in complete privacy.
