Contemporary Countryside Haven: Riverbend's Serene Retreat in Metcalfe

Discover the hidden gem that is Metcalfe, nestled in the warmth of central Victoria. This stunning locale is characterised by the magnificent Metcalfe Cascades, the meandering Coliban River and rolling hills that paint an unforgettable picture. Steeped in the rich history of old gold, it holds the legacy of Chinese miners who once cultivated a thriving market garden here, seeing the convergence of two water sources as a symbol of great fortune.

Now, this fortunate setting could be yours to call home. Riverbend, sprawled across 4.05ha (10 acres approx.), awaits families, nature enthusiasts and those with a passion for horses or hobby farming. Its offerings are a blend of uniqueness and practicality. Positioned opposite the Coliban River, it boasts a picturesque backdrop complemented by a 375m granite rock embedded creek frontage. Imagine swimming, exploring and hosting gatherings under the cool shade of gums along the bank.

The land, featuring 3 fenced paddocks and a horse box, offers versatility with pens, sheds and aviaries catering to various stock and pets. A 4 bay shed with a concrete floor and power, inclusive of a 4 and 2 bay skillion, provides ample space for storage and tinkering.

Step into the contemporary family home and be greeted by a flexible floorplan. A wide hallway leads to the master bedroom with a modern ensuite on the right, while the first of two living spaces sits on the left. At 6.1m x 5.5m, this space can easily transform into a home office, gym, studio, theatre room or a spacious fourth bedroom.

Two additional robed bedrooms follow, separated by a contemporary family bathroom. Enjoy year-round comfort with ducted heating and cooling, complemented by three new reverse cycle split systems strategically placed throughout the home.

The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area seamlessly connects to a large undercover alfresco, perfect for family gatherings. The kitchen is well-equipped with a gas cooktop, electric oven, ample pantry space and generous storage and bench space.

Additional features include excellent NBN connectivity, a 2 car carport adjacent to the home, 2 nearly new heat pump hot water units and 5 water tanks storing approximately 110,000 litres.

Embrace the warmth of a welcoming community that supports a social tennis club, an annual music festival and embodies true country spirit with a wood chop event.

Weekends here invite exploration of the Metcalfe Cascades, perhaps culminating in a delightful meal at the renowned Redesdale Pub. The Metcalfe Shire Hall offers a bus service ensuring easy access for kids to schools in Kyneton, just a 15 or 40 minute drive from Kyneton or Bendigo, respectively.
