A Home For All
A long sweeping drive leads you to this fantastic three-bedroom home, privately tucked away amongst the trees on 15.3 acres (approx). A home for all this property is a rare find, with an inground pool, paddocks set up for horses, a small arena and a large dam set within the surrounds of the bush. Quiet yet for the abundant birdlife, this is a property to enjoy a country lifestyle, yet only a short drive from Chewton and Castlemaine for retail, amenities, schools and the train station to Melbourne or Bendigo.

The front verandah overlooks the surrounding landscape and makes for the perfect place to watch the sunset behind the distant trees as you enter the home and into the updated open-plan kitchen with dining and living. Recently renovated, the kitchen features dark green cabinets with soft close drawers, a farmhouse-style ceramic sink, stone benchtops, a Miele dishwasher, and a Miele induction cooktop with an under-mount oven. A stunning copper rangehood crowns the freestanding Stanley food fire cooktop with a wetback fitted to heat hot water. An island bench with storage provides additional bar-style seating, and a large walk-in pantry leads into the laundry. Adjoining the kitchen is a second living room or fourth bedroom that overlooks the pool area. A large glass sliding door provides privacy. A sliding door from the open plan dining with living opens to the 5.8m x 4.2m alfresco area overlooking the pool, and the living has outlooks to the surrounding west-facing landscape. Throughout the renovated home are timber-clad walls and raked ceilings with beams freshly painted white and offset by the black ceiling fans, giving a fresh Scandi feel to the interior.

The main bedroom with a vaulted ceiling has an updated ensuite with a walk-in shower, underfloor heating, a vanity and a toilet and at the north end of the home are two bedrooms with built-in robes and split systems and an updated bathroom with a shower, a freestanding bath, underfloor heating, a vanity and a toilet. A private study/ home office is off the dining/ living space. Additional updated details include an integrated solar system, solar hot water, and honeycomb blinds. This property is on tank water supplied by a 20,000-litre rainwater tank and a septic system.

Outside is where the fun begins with a spacious alfresco deck overlooking the 6.6m x 3.6m inground pool (solar heated) with a summer house, the perfect place to spend the long summer days entertaining family and friends. For horse lovers, the property features four paddocks, electric fencing and a small arena. A double carport adjoins the house, and a 7.5 x 6m garage provides additional parking and storage. The property has a low-maintenance garden, a bore and a large dam tucked away in the bush.

Private, quiet and with abundant native birds and wildlife, this property sits within its beautiful bush setting is a home to cater for all, with room to grow, entertain, explore, and most importantly, enjoy and love, making it the perfect home to call home.
