Former School Teachers Residence Circa 1914

Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Metcalfe in the Coliban River valley, the former school residence has been lovingly restored into a unique family home which enriches and excites all year round.

Behind the Edwardian exterior with the anticipated stained glass entry and tall chimneys, the interior blends function and charm throughout. The 3 large bedrooms, including a master with ensuite and WIR, a central lounge/ dining area and a kitchen with walk in pantry straight out of Country Style magazine, give the home a sense of provenance, while the return verandah and undercover alfresco area allow for intimate family gatherings.

A 2nd bathroom, family size laundry and mud room are matched with a separate wc, and a wood heater, split system and ceiling fans provide optimum family comfort.

Beyond the pencil pine line driveway, the established garden is a colourful array of camellias, silver birch trees and smoke bush with a 100 year old Irish strawberry tree as the centrepiece. The tall pines at the rear are scholastic reminders of the property’s past, when school pine plantations were part of the curriculum.

Outside infrastructure is numerous:

• 4 bay 12m x 7m powered machinery shed
• Double car port
• Tractor shed
• Powered work shed
• Former laundry/ wood shed
• 2 x 22,500 litre rainwater tanks
• Header tank with a Coliban River Water Right reticulated to the garden
• Chook run
• Raised vegie beds

A sense of calm and enduring style pervades this very private property, but much of the appeal is its ability to work so seamlessly for family life both inside and out. And if that’s not enough, then Kyneton, Castlemaine, Redesdale and Taradale can be reached in less than 15 mins in either direction and the famous Cascades and Turpins Falls are only a matter of minutes away.
