Embracing Serenity
Set back and nestled atop a hill, this 1978 circa three-bedroom home offers quiet and private living, with the song of birds, majestic gum trees and spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. The 4.9-acre (approx) property is a short drive from Castlemaine for retail, amenities, schools, the train to Melbourne and easy access to the Calder freeway for Melbourne or Bendigo.

The light and bright floor plan features entry into the living with a split system and an adjoining formal dining space with access to the terrace. A north-facing kitchen provides a Blanco 900mm freestanding gas cooktop with an oven, a pantry, a Bosch dishwasher, and a timber benchtop with bar-style seating. The kitchen is open to the informal dining area with access to the entertaining terrace with a pizza oven and vine-covered pergola, enhancing the outdoor living experience. The views from the kitchen/ dining and the terrace offer a panorama of the surrounding landscape and distant hills. The property features three generous bedrooms, with the main bedroom including an ensuite bathroom with a shower, vanity, and toilet. A central bathroom has a shower over a back-to-wall bath, a vanity, a separate toilet, and a laundry with storage and external access. Updates include an integrated solar system ensuring energy efficiency, ceiling fans and a gas heater. This property is on town water and bottled gas.

Outside, a circular driveway leads to the home and the 6m x 11m garage with a workshop and an adjoining two-room studio or potential independent living space. The property features a chook pen and an iconic Hills Hoist. The private and tranquil property spans just under 5 acres (approx) with a dam, majestic gums, fruit trees, rock walling and a native rambling garden that contribute to the natural ambience and add to its rural charm.

This property offers a blend of comfortable living with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Quiet and private, this is a home to embrace the serenity of country living.
