1950s Family Home In A Tranquil Bush Setting

Set on 4.5 hectares (11 acres) on an elevated plateau with long views, this cream brick family home was constructed in 1957 – in an era dominated by a prosperous economy, a high standard of living, family-focused values and the ‘suburban dream’ of a house of one’s own. The Hills hoist is still here and the mid-century character of the home is preserved: with under carpet hardwood flooring, detailed cornices, and large steel frame windows.

Located in the Castlemaine Diggings Historic Park precinct, the area is infused with reminders of the area’s 19th century goldrush origins with localities such as Heron’s Reef, Chokem Flat, and Cobblers Gully giving the district a colourful vernacular.

The floor plan comprises 3 bedrooms (2 with built-in robe storage), central renovated bathroom, kitchen and casual meals area and a spacious family room overlooking the front and rear gardens.

There is a double garage, car port, numerous sheds, with gravity fed garden irrigation from a public dam as well as mains power and numerous rainwater tanks.

Recent works carried out include:
New roofing, new plumbing, new bathroom, new instantaneous gas hws

Conveniently located between Chewton and Fryerstown, with Castlemaine only a 10 minute drive, the home’s optimal orientation maximises northern sunlight and airflow, and there is a strong connection to the outside. It is a home that perfectly encapsulates so many of the nostalgic attributes of mid-century design, whilst offering the opportunity to live in now, renovate later.
