12 Rowan Street was once considered Bendigo's first modern home. It is a significant example of the Prairie School style introduced into Australia by Walter Burley Griffin (Canberra's designer).
'The Warren House' was designed circa 1920 by Edward Fielder Billson. He began his architectural career under Griffin a& later became an influential designer responsible for many fine buildings in Australia.

Billson's solid brick construction features horizontal stucco bands, terracotta tiled gabled roof with wide eaves, a projecting bay on the right with a deeply recessed porch supported by brick piers & his signature geometric leadlight glazed windows.

Currently utilised as medical consulting rooms, it has been altered to suit the leasees but retains its inherent charm & character & has the potential to revert to a grand inner-city residence.

As a family home, it offers a collection of refined spaces beginning with a large entry foyer leading to a formal lounge & dining room opposite. The main bedroom features built-in robes & shares a two-way ensuite with the second bedroom.

The second bedroom has built-in robes with two more bedrooms, a powder room, kitchen/ meals with WIP & laundry bring up the rear. An enclosed rear nook includes a spiral staircase to an attic bedroom/study and ample roof space for future expansion.

A host of period features include leadlight & sash windows, high decorative ceilings, polished timber floors, timber picture rails & a north-facing box bay window in the lounge providing natural light & ambience.

The well-maintained original facade is enhanced by easy-care landscaping to the front with original outbuildings in the cleared rear yard.

Currently used as medical rooms, it comprises a waiting room, reception/administration area, four consulting rooms, shared bathroom, accessible toilet, kitchen/staffroom, attic & shed storage, security system, reverse cycle air conditioning & on-site parking for 6 vehicles.

Be it for business or living the inner-city position is paramount - it's within walking distance to everything Bendigo is renown for – the Art Gallery, Ulumbarra & Capital Theatres, Rosalind Park, cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, private/public schools, sporting facilities: Queen Elizabeth Oval, Faith Leech Aquatic Centre, Bendigo Lawn Bowls & Tennis Clubs, Tom Flood Sports Centre & the hospital precinct.

Inner-city opportunities like this are scarce – don't miss it!
