Architectural Rammed Earth Masterpeice on 2.04Ha

Nestled amidst the natural beauty of Taradale lies a captivating haven, affectionately known as ‘The Olive Paddock’. Prepare to be enamoured by its blend of romance, style and luxurious living.

As you wind along the driveway flanked by thriving olive groves, a Mediterranean-esque charm envelops you. This bespoke residence, a mere eight years young, crafted from rammed earth and adorned with Silvertop Ash cladding by the esteemed builder Warren Hughes, boasts exceptional passive solar properties. Its eco-friendliness is heightened by double glazing and a bank of solar panels, promising both sustainability and reduced utility expenses.

Step inside to experience architectural brilliance by the renowned Sue Mitchell, evident in polished concrete floors, lofty plywood-lined ceilings and meticulously chosen high-end fixtures throughout. Each room in this home offers a breathtaking panorama – from rolling hills and the enchanting olive grove to the picturesque Australian bushland.

During cooler months, revel in the comfort provided by hydronic heating while relishing the added luxury of heated bathroom floors. A charismatic wood fire takes centre stage in the open living area, adding a touch of warmth and charm.

The thoughtfully designed floorplan encompasses four bedrooms, two bathrooms including a generous ensuite, and a spacious office nook, inviting you to seamlessly blend work with the pleasures of your own paradise. The heart of the home lies in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living space, where cherished moments with family and friends will be created.

A chef’s touch graces the incredible kitchen, equipped with a Falcon Oven and Rangehood, Wood-fired AGA, Smeg Dishwasher, a convenient butler’s pantry and warm Tasmanian Oak benchtops. A central, industrial-styled bench with seating awaits lively family cooking sessions and delightful pizza nights!

Open the heavy sliding doors to reveal an outdoor entertainment haven, expanding your living space and adorned with grapevines overlooking the inviting heated magnesium salt inground pool, perfect for leisurely family days.

The property’s olive grove, irrigated by the dam, boasts approximately 200 Corregiola and Frantoio olive trees now producing small batch olive oil.

Additional notable features include two water tanks, a three-mega-litre dam at the property’s front, two, two-car carports, a large shed with power, solar entry gates and the property is fully fenced.

Positioned ideally, the address offers access to trails within the Fryers Ridge Nature Conservation Reserve for invigorating trail bike rides and leisurely walks. A mere five-minute drive leads to the thriving local primary school and town, with convenient school bus services to Castlemaine and Kyneton. Taradale’s strategic location ensures easy commutes to Kyneton, Castlemaine, Daylesford and Bendigo.
