Faraday School House No 797 c1869
Faraday School House reads like a classic period novel, starting with a rich history with strong community spirit, then a drama with an act of bravery and ending in a beautifully restored home filled with love and laughter. With historical architectural and social significance, Faraday School House is one of only two Common Schools constructed of locally sourced granite in Victoria and built by the local community in 1869.

Today the schoolhouse still stands proud, along with two additional buildings providing a multi-faceted property on just over 2.1 acres. The old-school building combines a recently updated kitchen with dining and living. Lovingly restored, the open plan layout features a high cove timber ceiling, a solid wood heater, ceiling fans, Tasmanian Oak polished floorboards, new timber blinds, and an insulated roof and floor. The sleek contemporary kitchen provides a freestanding Belling gas cooktop with an oven, a dishwasher, and plenty of storage and bench space. Exterior access leads to a large 6m x 6.2m alfresco area with wisteria and an ornamental grapevine. A short stroll leads you to a second 1980s granite building housing a bedroom, a bathroom with a large walk-in shower and a separate toilet. Design details include a high vaulted timber ceiling, brick flooring, a solid wood heater, french doors and a split system.

A third self-contained cottage provides independent living opportunities and features, a kitchen open to living and dining, a freestanding gas cooktop with oven, a split system, and a bedroom with built-in robes and an ensuite bathroom. This property is on bottled gas and tank water.

Fully fenced, the grounds include a 6m x 11m garage with laundry, a studio with power and deck, a seasonal flowing creek, raised veggie garden, three water tanks, and a low maintenance garden with established trees of both ornamental and native.

With birdlife surrounding you, it is only a short drive into Harcourt and Castlemaine for retail and amenities and close access to the Calder Freeway for easy access to Melbourne and Bendigo. Faraday School House is a unique property of social and historical significance with the benefits of providing a multi-faceted opportunity with independent living options.
