A truly unique lifestyle property on over 20 acres!
If you are searching for that quintessential “home amongst the gumtrees” to escape the demands of modern living – then this 20 acre native bushland property is for you. The four bedroom steel frame corrugated iron home is nestled in a picturesque valley between two large dams and a seasonal creek in Sedgwick only fifteen minutes from Bendigo’s vibrant arts and café culture.
The larger of the two dams backs onto State Forest; an ideal setting for camp fires, water sports and entertaining large groups of family and friends with the sights and sounds of the Australian bush as your backdrop. Closer to the house a sandstone and gravel path leads into a spacious 9m x 7.5m covered timber deck with built in storage and lush fernery; providing a sheltered sanctuary perfect for more intimate gatherings.
The sixteen year old split level home has been recently updated with brand new carpets and timber look flooring, fresh paintwork throughout as well as a beautifully crafted bespoke kitchen. The open plan kitchen-dining-living zone is located on the lower level overlooking the timber deck. It features a large free standing wood fire, ceiling fan and 2.7 metre ceilings. A bedroom with extensive built in shelving is also included on this level that can be utilised as a spacious study or second living if required.
The hand crafted and highly functional solid Blackwood kitchen is a stunning fusion of contemporary and traditional elements. Stand out features include stainless steel appliances and splashback, a striking mix of stone, timber and stainless steel benchtops, Bosch induction cooktop and Miele wok burner, St George double domestic wall ovens, double sink and Asko dishwasher, walk in pantry and meticulously designed timber cabinetry.
The accommodation zone on the upper level includes an additional three double bedrooms with built in robes, family bathroom with timber vanity, bath and shower, brand new separate toilet and a large laundry with extensive built in storage.
