The Quiet Life

Accessed from a sealed road and with mains power, is this rarely found 3.79HA (9.36 acres) bushland hideaway complete with a contemporary 1 bedroom retreat and separate studio. Architecturally designed, this solar passive home sits harmoniously within the bushland surrounds, delivering a high standard of living with an abundance of north facing light from full height double glazed windows that frame the quintessentially Australian landscape beyond.

Brick, corrugated iron and terrazzo concrete combine to deliver a striking contemporary contrast of materials. Entering via a vestibule, at one end of the home, you will find open plan living with the kitchen, walk in pantry and meals area celebrating high ceilings creating a vast welcoming space. A central wood fire heater, sliding doors to the outside and purpose-built timber features make this a pleasant setting to curl up with a book.

The remainder of the home is dedicated to the bedroom with bulkhead storage, with the bed orientated toward a large ‘picture’ window framing the view, WIR/study nook, WC and combined bathroom/laundry. The separate studio would be suitable for varied use, including a mezzanine, partially finished bathroom, Stanley wood fire stove/oven heating and garage.

A broad cleared area surrounds the home and studio, with the remaining portion of land relatively untouched attracting native wildlife such as kangaroos, swamp wallabies, phascogales, dunnarts, koalas, echidnas, wombats, sugar gliders, tree dragon lizards and native bees. Throughout the year the bushland comes alive with yellow paper daisy, chocolate lily, hardenbergia, at least 12 varieties of native orchid, sundew and grevillea to name a few.

Drummond is a small community situated 15 minutes west of Kyneton. Tracing its origins to gold digging in the 1850s, there are still many reminders of the deep lead mining dotting surrounding farms, as well as mineral water sources at nearby Glenluce and Vaughan Springs. Located 100km from Melbourne, and 65 km from Bendigo, the Drummond area is very tightly held, and this is your opportunity to purchase a piece of the Australian countryside centrally located between the popular regional towns of Castlemaine, Kyneton and Daylesford.
