Quiet Living at The Paddock
This two-bedroom, two-storey townhouse with an 8.1-star energy-efficiency rating has an ethos of sustainability, community and self-sufficiency. Welcome to The Paddock, a unique community-orientated project designed to value a sustainable lifestyle, both privacy and sharing, food growing, communal facilities and within walking distance or a short drive of the retail and amenities of Castlemaine, the train station, Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, and access to walking tracks.

Rough-sawn cladding and a passive solar design, the townhouse features entry into an open-plan kitchen with a dining and living space. The soft and muted tones of the rendered walls create a calming and quiet atmosphere, balanced by the warm tones of the recycled timber flooring. North-facing, the living opens onto a small deck overlooking the communal gardens and surrounding landscape. The kitchen provides a pantry, an induction cooktop with an under-mount oven, a drawer dishwasher and a central island with a recycled timber benchtop. Located under the staircase are a powder room and storage cupboards.

Recycled timber stairs lead to the second level, a vaulted light well in the hallway. A generous south-facing bedroom has built-in robes and distant views of Mount Franklin. North-facing, the main bedroom provides built-in robes and views over the communal gardens and surrounding landscape. Servicing the two bedrooms is a bathroom with a vanity, toilet and shower over a bath. An attic accessed via a pulldown ladder provides additional storage. Design details include double glazing, honeycomb blinds, ceiling fans, a split system, a hot water heat pump, a 4Kw integrated solar system and an NBN connection.

A north-facing courtyard allows for a private space, whilst the communal grounds include raised veggie gardens, a chicken pen, fruit trees, sitting areas, garden shed, and a community centre featuring meeting spaces, a kitchen and private guest accommodation for family and friends. Communal benefits include shared laundry facilities, e-Bikes, an embedded network solar system that feeds back to the grid and water storage. The townhouse has mains water, tank water and grey water available. This is quiet living at its best.

VENDOR NOTE | We have lived at The Paddock for two years and absolutely love it. Growing our own food, gardening in the communal spaces and joining neighbours for social events has given us a real taste of what community-driven living is.
