Ethos of Sustainability
Due for completion in mid-March, this contemporary three-bedroom, two-storey townhouse quietly set back on the allotment has at its core 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 a spacious open-plan kitchen with a study before opening into a living with dining space. North-facing, the dining opens onto a private 6.2m x 6.4m courtyard. The kitchen provides an induction cooktop with an under-mount oven, a dishwasher, a pantry and a central island with a recycled timber benchtop providing additional seating. Completing the ground floor is a powder room.

Stairs lead to the second level, highlighted by the vaulted light well (remote opening/self-closing). Two north-facing bedrooms overlook the communal gardens and surrounding landscape and feature built-in robes, and the north-west bedroom has a Juliet balcony, making for a perfect spot to watch the sunsets. The third bedroom is south-facing and has a built-in robe. Servicing the bedrooms on the second level is a bathroom with a shower, a vanity, a toilet and laundry facilities incorporated into the design. A loft accessed via a pulldown ladder provides additional storage. Design details include double glazing, a hot water heat pump, a 4Kw integrated solar system and an NBN connection.

A north-facing courtyard/ garden allows for a private space, whilst the communal grounds include meandering paths, raised veggie gardens, a chicken pen, fruit trees, sitting areas, sheds, a 15amp power point in carport, and a community centre featuring meeting spaces, a kitchen and guest accommodation for family and friends. Communal benefits include an embedded network solar system that feeds back to the grid and water storage. Stamp duty concessions may apply.
