Artist David Bromley and his wife, Yuge, are selling a historic Hepburn Springs estate they bought sight-unseen five years ago as they prepared to move to Victoria from Byron Bay.
Wyuna, as it was known when the newly wed Bromleys paid $750,000, had been occupied as a boarding house and also an aged care facility.
The pair undertook a major renovation fitting studios into the homes then 13 bedrooms.
Since moving, the Bromleys, now with a young family, have split their time between this Hepburn Spring house, and an inner-Melbourne home office in Prahran – some 120 kilometres away.
Now without the Wyuna name, the home is being marketed as “a large rambling Victorian dwelling circa 1800s” on a 2200 square metre garden holding “walking distance from all that Hepburn Springs has to offer”.
The main house is configured with a studio, three bedrooms, a formal dining room and three living areas. A separate living quarters adds another bedroom. Other outbuildings on the property which agents would call bedrooms, are currently occupied by the artists as studios.
The selling agents are marketing the historic property’s potential as a unique holiday-rental.
