You may not have heard of this place but if you want to escape, not only the city but to live away from tourist crowds consider this.

Beautiful from the inside out with picturesque views. All the hard work is done for you to sit back and enjoy, entertain, or live permanently.

30 minutes to Daylesford, 30 minutes to Castlemaine, 10 minutes to Newstead - it is Sandon.

Excellent access for home based business or staying connected. WiFi works fine, house is wired ready for satellite dish installation & the office/study has wiring provisions as well.   3G & 4G are available. The elevation of the land makes it all work well eg tv, computers, ipads, mobile phones.

If gardening or production is your thing, there is chooks, orchard, and production paddocks to balance the bushland setting.

Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood of solar powered properties.

This solidly built house has used masonry blocks, stone and recycled hardwoods on 40 acres of beautiful Central Victorian land.

It is part underground utilising thermal mass properties which help keep constant temperature reducing heating & cooling costs. Also this aids as a safety measure should a bush fire or high winds approach the vicinity.

Stand-alone 5kw ‘state of the art’ solar system with automatic backup generator ready.

Two 22,700 litre rain water tanks.

EPA approved reed bed via holding tank and septic tank for both grey & black waste water.

The bathroom has large shower with a separate huge bath and a water flushing toilet in the room next door.

Floor to ceiling, 8mm safety glass, tinted windows and doors throughout the large open plan living area.

Opening clerestory windows that heat up the stone feature wall in winter and miss it during summer.

Two dams totalling 7.5 megalitres

Underground irrigation to 3 x 1 acre fenced production paddocks.

Previously certified organic with ACO from 2004 - 2008. The property was producing, and selling locally, eggs & herbs.

Orchard consisting of apples and pears

The self contained studio/shed (12m x 8m) is an ideal teenager retreat or weekender for visitors. It has its own kitchen, bathroom, wood heater and a well working composting toilet. Two large verandahs and wood BBQ make for good entertaining.

The property is situated at the end of a ‘no thru road’ so there is no traffic.

Less than 30 minutes’ drive to Daylesford, Maryborough and Castlemaine, 1 hour to both Bendigo and Ballarat.

This house has a purpose built ‘safe room’.

Strategically placed swales exist to direct the water flow into both dams and produces optimal catchment without flooding.

The property is quite high at 350 above sea level and because of this misses most frosts and continually has better weather than its surrounds.

On a clear day there are views to Mt Franklin, Mt Alexander and Mt Tarrengower.

An abundance of wild life passes through the property including: echidnas, koalas, wedgetail eagles, kangaroos, wallabies, lizards, fairy wrens, parrots, kookaburras, magpies, honey eaters to name just a few.

Ahhhh…the serenity of living in the great Australian bush.

The ‘as new’ furniture is available to purchase with the house if desirable.
