Persimmon is a late 1860s ironmongers shop residence converted into a warm and welcoming one-bedroom abode in the heart of Clunes.
In the early 1860s, the shop on Fraser Street was erected and used by the owner/occupier as an Iron Merchant and general store for agriculture and leather goods. A rear residence was erected a little later in the late 1860s. The addition of the residence typifies the rebuilding and general upgrading of the area in the late 1860s and early 1870s.
The restoration of this historic building has seen original period features kept that provide insight to and a reminder of a time long past. Small and elegant, a focus has been placed on beautiful fabrics and a contemporary period style that comes together to create a special and memorable space.
Petite, but perfect, everything you need is here. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, wood heater, king-size bed, and even a claw foot bath, sit in stylish and sophisticated interiors.
Views onto an enclosed courtyard give a feeling of being in another time and place. You can relax and really make the most of this charming and quiet getaway, or simply stroll to the main street 50 meters away and peruse the quaint shops, groovy cafes and restaurants, immersed in the history and ambience of this brilliant place.
A mecca for moviemakers and enthusiasts and home to the Booktown Festival, Clunes is rapidly becoming the next little Victorian “hot spot”, a must to discover.
