"Timeless Elegance"


State Mines Hotel in South Dudley on the outskirts of Wonthaggi is presently a magnificent and stately home. Lovingly converted and restored by past and present owners it now invites you to experience modern living combined with yesteryear elegance, style and grand sophistication.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, coastal walks and scenic country drives and are seeking the most harmonious country escape away from the hustle and bustle of city life, with the option of generating a comfortable income then this is for you.

At ground level as you enter the home there is a separate apartment, this is the west wing comprising of a large bedroom, kitchen living room and modern bathroom. Direct access to the outside car park and gardens is perfectly set up for a long term tenant or family member.

As you delve into the home you are greeted with the most beautiful formal lounge with access to the original cellar. The dining hall and billiard room take centre stage and are cleverly linked, all complimented by a modern living kitchen and dining room with direct access to the gardens at the rear of the home.

The original choice of location back in the early part of the 1900's is paramount to its present and future success both as a home and as a successful business being only a few minutes to the centre of town and only a stones throw away from the rail trail and local pony club.

The walking/cycling trails in the area have grown in popularity, to go west will take you past Dalyston, Kilcunda and all the way to San Remo, along the way you can enjoy scenic farmland, nearby hills and the rolling surf beaches. The remains of the old coal mine entrances can be explored too with designated public trails through the native forest nearby. A brisk walk eastwards through the wetlands, abundant with bird life, takes you directly into the township of Wonthaggi.

An historic multi zoned residence with billiard room and bar, 6 lavish bedrooms/guest rooms, manicured grounds, fully fenced, accompanying modern 6 vehicle shedding and additional off street parking this will be the perfect retirement retreat or large family home. Currently operating as a boutique B & B with proven income, repeat business presently scheduled and the potential for much more.

You will not only be amazed with the grandeur experienced within, but also be surprised with the complex array of period features and superb decor throughout including the original brass fitted swing doors allowing access to the formal lounge room, various fireplaces, lofted ceilings, original timber floor boards, glazing and industrial brick feature walls found throughout the home.

Upstairs beyond the restored timber staircase you will find 5 bedrooms all of which enjoy a warm inviting feel with newly laid richly coloured carpet and multiple split systems. Three bathrooms with quality features and fittings and a comfortable breakfast zone with an updated kitchenette.
