It's Beautiful Here
Location matters and this never-to-be-built-up property on (approx.) 22.2 acres along a quintessential country road is rare. It is located 10 minutes from the centre of historic Maldon, 20 minutes from bustling Castlemaine and its regular train to Melbourne, 50 minutes from metropolitan Bendigo, and only 3 minutes from Cairn Curran Reservoir with its swimming, fishing, boating and picnic delights.

From the house itself, you see the picturesque sweep of the Pyrenees, the dramatic close view of Mount Tarrengower, ancient granite boulders stunningly near the wrap-around verandah, and everywhere the vast, changing sky and soaring eagles. Visitors, from near and far, exclaim, it is so beautiful here.

The house is surrounded partly by paddocks, partly by native trees, home to more than a dozen varieties of birds, groves of mature fruit and citrus trees, scented bushes and vines, and rockeries, all easy to maintain.

The magnificent wrap-around verandah, (with awnings against the summer sun) includes a spacious 12.4m x 3.9m year-round relaxing entertainment/al fresco-covered back deck. Emerging from that deck is a spectacular granite formation. A brief climb to the top gives you 270-degree views of the stunning landscape.

Inside, the floorplan features entry into the open plan living, dining and north-facing kitchen areas with large screened windows framing the beautiful views, a Ned Kelly wood burner, and a split system. The kitchen provides a dishwasher, electric cooktop, wall oven, an ample pantry and a wrap-around bench with bar-style seating. The home features four spacious bedrooms, two with built-in robes and again, all with views. All main rooms are equipped with ceiling fans. The central bathroom, close to the main bedroom, has a wrap-around vanity with a basin, a shower, heated towel rail and toilet. The laundry has a separate toilet and external access to the entertaining deck. Additional details include messmate timber flooring, underground power, solar hot water and three substantial water storage tanks.

A short stroll from the house is a 12m x 24m garage with 2 x roller door access, a concrete floor, power, sink, built-in counters and shelving, and room for farm equipment. Within the garage/shed is a vast fully insulated, four-room open-plan studio with concrete floor, heating, power, an extractor, excellent lighting, screened windows, a small gallery space, ample storage facilities, and 2 x door access. There is also a nearby large container and several small sheds.

Private and quiet, this property provides an escape to rural Central Victoria, as a home base or as a rare inspiring, beautiful weekend retreat, in all its stunning, varied seasons.
