Renovated Period Home In Park-Like Surroundings

Nestled in a tranquil setting with the towering messmate trees of the Wombat State Forest as the backdrop, this 1930s period home is the ideal weekend sanctuary or permanent family home.
There is a sense of anticipation and arrival – the low slung lines of the home itself resonate with the immediate environment, with a focus on simplicity, scale and proportion.

The disarmingly modest façade belies an interior that takes everyday materials and does something extraordinary with them. Original hardwood floors cosily align with the retro kitchen and bathroom, the 3 light-filled bedrooms off the central hallway are full of colour and intrigue and the living room with a wrap around verandah deck is straight out of Country Style magazine.

The outdoors is no less interesting: a large dam with its own pier forms the apex of the garden which maintains a lush appearance all year round, thanks to the headwaters of the Coliban River which are just past the rear boundary.

The deep expansive deck celebrates the gathering of friends with ease and a spare room off the rear deck would be ideal as a home office environment although there are so many distractions at this stunning property you would be forgiven if work wasn’t top of mind here.

Works that have been carried out include:

New instantaneous gas HWS
Rewiring and new light fittings
Replumbed
Restumped
Wood fire heating and split system air conditioning
2 car garage, work room and wood shed

Discreetly positioned at the end of Coliban Drive, you are quietly secluded but far from isolated, with the landmark Radio Springs Hotel and the Domino Rail Trail closeby (the latter is a designated Powerful Owl conservation area). Trentham is 8 minutes east and Daylesford is 15 minutes drive west with a vast range of eateries, boutiques and rejuvenation centres to choose from.
