Set amongst a park-like 5.5 acres in the peaceful community of Welshmans Reef, this compact yet feature-filled home boasts an enviable location with many of the region’s attractions within easy reach. Lake Cairn Curran is minutes away for the water sports enthusiast, and the vibrant town of Castlemaine is 20 minutes via either Maldon or Newstead. Then it’s easy access to Melbourne and/or Bendigo, making this an excellent weekend getaway or full-time lifestyle change.
The home, highset to enjoy its surroundings, has a simple floorplan offering easy adaption for those wanting to expand. At present there are two big bedrooms, both with French doors opening onto their own decked areas. Each room has a full wall of storage and central to both is the bathroom. Large and opulent, its centrepiece is a Sydney Bath Co cast iron bath, a relaxing place to soak away a day in the garden. There is a large walk-in shower and a wooden dresser has been beautifully transformed into a vanity unit.
With very little to do except relax and enjoy, the rest of the home is open and flows from the kitchen to the living for easy entertaining and movement from one space to the other. Raked ceilings create a sense of space and large windows capture the views. The kitchen has a pyrolytic wall oven, gas hob and ample workspace with good size corner pantry. Striking leadlight doors lead to the front deck and at the rear a large paved alfresco is overlooked by an outdoor fireplace fashioned using the remains of an old dwelling. A shed with power and concrete floor is perfect storage for mowers and tools and attached covered parking for a vehicle. There is capacity to store approx. 75,000 litres of rainwater.
Majestic gums and a seasonal creek bring birdlife in abundance and the grounds are delightful. Seasonal plantings bring colour and interest and there is access to the back of the block via Gordons Road. Whether permanently or as a weekend retreat, this is a property to be treasured.
