Discover this Beautiful Part of the Castlemaine Region
Quiet and peaceful neighbourhood of solar powered properties with easy access - 30 minutes to Daylesford, 30 minutes to Castlemaine, 10 minutes to Newstead.

Enjoy Newstead with its RTC (Rural Transaction Service) and all the benefits on one of the most desirable locations of Victoria.

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.

This solidly built new house has used masonry blocks, stone and recycled hardwoods on 40 acres.

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 - 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.

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.

The home has been ‘owner built’ with only the best materials and will be sold with the required builders insurance.

All certificates of compliance will be supplied along with scrap books of the build from start to finish.

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.
