A country escape without losing the convenience of being close to town, 92 Castlemaine-Maldon Road is the perfect address for a full-time tree change, family living or weekend escape. Set on five acres, mains water connected and with a substantial brick residence, it blends all the elements for town living in a semi-rural setting and can accommodate the biggest of families.
The home has five dedicated bedrooms, all of which are large, and a study with built-in storage could easily become a sixth. The master has ensuite and walk-in robe while built-in robes accommodate the remaining bedrooms, and these are serviced by a central family bathroom. All the bedrooms are fitted with plantation shutters. The living areas are staggered, with living to the front, rear and middle of the home. All these spaces are generous and enjoy large picture windows framing the stunning garden views.
At its hub, an inviting open plan living/dining and kitchen area blends seamlessly with the natural surroundings, creating the perfect indoor/outdoor entertaining environment. Adding to the relaxed feel of this space is a recycled brick feature wall and large wood heater. The kitchen offers gas and electric cooking, dishwasher for easy clean ups, stone benches and the cupboards have been cleverly fitted with internal drawers for ease of access.
Outside, the house garden is thoughtfully designed with a careful selection of trees and shrubs that change with the seasons, inviting an ambience of calm and tranquillity. Privacy is ensured. But it is not all relaxation, there is a practical side to the garden with approx. 65 fruit trees ensuring a productive harvest. This is complemented by an established vegetable garden and chook run. An ornamental pond encourages the birdlife and other native animals.
The property is well fenced and there are five paddocks of varying sizes. Currently home to several horses, there is a central horse shelter and multidirectional gates offer easy movement between the paddocks. There is capacity to store up to 75,000 litres of rainwater for stock or garden use. Additional features include double lock up garage, ducted evaporative cooling and ducted heating, ensuring comfort and convenience in this semi-rural oasis.
