All great rural properties arouse a strong visceral reaction and this private, family sanctuary is no exception. Beautifully styled, taking on the Australian vernacular of the quintessential homestead with a strong connection to the landscape and stunning rural vistas, the home also marries the lightness and transparency of modern construction.
The family residence takes everyday materials and does something extraordinary with them. Full height windows and doors act like a ribbon of glass to bring the outside world in, including postcard views of Mt Macedon and the interior is a celebration of perfectly selected and finished materials, exemplified by double glazed windows and doors and a wrap-around verandah, that reinforce the rural idyll with tranquil vistas from every angle.
Set in manicured gardens, the centrepiece is the inground solar heated saltwater pool with a paved alfresco area that acts as an extension of the open plan living area and exquisite family kitchen with a line of sight for watching children at play. The wall to wall symmetry throughout is carried over with 5 generous bedrooms, office, gymnasium, 3 tiled bathrooms (including ensuite and WIR) a 2nd living room, family size laundry and drying cupboard.
Incorporating the original 1850s farmhouse on bluestone foundations is a large studio separate from the main residence which also embraces framed views of Mt Macedon and the surrounding farmland, and which could be repurposed as an ideal farm stay retreat, home office, yoga studio or hobby/sewing room.
This property offers an unparalleled family lifestyle, multi-functionality and is income generating, all whilst being a comfortable commute to Melbourne. Private but not isolated, you are 6.6kms to Kyneton and 8.5km to Woodend with a choice of primary and secondary schools, eateries, boutique shopping, farmers markets and the fast VLine service to Melbourne and Bendigo.
