Land of Wonder Down Under
Welcome to "Woop Woop", a slice of Australiana with just over 8 acres (approx) of private bushland on two titles, zoned farming and with a three-bedroom home, gallery space and a workshop/ studio. Located not quite in Woop Woop but close to the thriving community of Harcourt that offers a primary school, a cafe, wineries, orchards, and the La Larr Ba Gauwa world-class mountain bike track. Castlemaine is a short drive away for additional schools, retail and amenities, and the train to Melbourne or Bendigo. This unique property makes for the perfect home base with the business opportunity to utilise the additional buildings as a gallery and communal workshop/ educational space (STCA).

The rendered home was built by the current owners in 1994, with the floorplan featuring a north-facing living and kitchen with dining. Open plan the space provides a solid wood heater, built-in shelving, a built-in desk, large windows with outlooks of the garden, and the country-style kitchen with dining has a walk-in pantry, a free-standing gas cooktop with oven (bottled gas), and a sliding door to the patio overlooking the garden. The three bedrooms have built-in robes, a central bathroom features a shower over the bath and a vanity, and the laundry has storage, a separate toilet and external access to the 3m x 6.6m carport. Design details of the home include brick flooring laid in a herringbone-style pattern, bespoke built-in furniture, an external dome above the ground cellar and the property is on tank water with six large tanks providing the water supply.

Privately positioned from the main house is a custom-built curved gallery space with a kitchenette, toilet facilities, a hessian ceiling, feature tree beams, and a private entrance. The possibilities are endless for the savvy business opportunist. The 14m x 3.6m multi-faceted building has the potential to be a communal hall, workshop, and art or educational space (STCA). The curved gallery building also includes a private open-air eating area and a studio/ workshop with double doors. The surrounding grounds include a BBQ area, three compostable toilets, and sitting areas. The meandering garden intertwines with the surrounding bushland, with a stunning view of Mount Alexander, a seasonal creek, the songs of birds, a dam and shedding, all help to make this unique property an ideal escape and retreat.
