Your small footprint and peace of mind in one package
This house is a dream come true. A chance to live a quiet and comfortable life in a peaceful valley, surrounded by box and eucalypt forest. The property consists of 48 fully fenced acres of open undulating paddocks with 10 acres surrounding the house completely enclosed by rabbit proof fences. A winter creek, lined with red gums, runs through the property feeding a 7m deep dam which provides water for the garden/orchard and with three other dams, ensures water is continually available.

Twenty years ago local craftsmen hand built this sustainable, stylish mud brick and timber home. The mud was sourced locally and bricks were made on site. Oregon, cedar, Victorian ash, Murray pine and redwood timbers create a sustainable and energy efficient, open plan, two storey, mezzanine structure that is warm in winter, and cool in summer.

The house is north facing, with floor to ceiling windows, and large upstairs dormers that provide light throughout the house. Power is provided by a ‘stand alone’ solar power system with a back-up generator, gas HWS and cooking, and wood fuel heating. The kitchen, walk in pantry, laundry and bathroom are all custom designed timber integrated with the existing mud walls.

There is a welcoming large entrance area, lounge, dining, and study areas, and 2-3 bedrooms currently in an open plan design.

Verandahs surround the house, with large outdoor paved living/ entertaining areas.
Water is gravity fed to the house, with 10,000gals of tank storage, water pumps and the house design includes an efficient composting toilet which ensures no water is wasted.
Shedding for pets, chooks, storage; a carport; with established gardens surrounding the house and an orchard /vegie area ensure all your needs are met.

Kangaroos come to greet you at sunset and the abundant bird life and huge night sky makes communing with nature a reality.

This property is situated close to Castlemaine, Maldon, and Daylesford with easy access to the major centres of Ballarat and Bendigo, this could be your dream.
