130A, Church Road, MOUNT FRANKLIN, VIC 3461
5 Bedroom Home on Approx 30 Acres with Spectacular Views
Here is a unique opportunity to purchase an outstanding lifestyle property in prestigious and tightly-held Mount Franklin, an easy 10 minute drive to Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, and just 20 minutes from Castlemaine with rail services to Melbourne and Bendigo.
With the ancient volcano rising magnificently nearby, this much loved family retreat of many years is a private and tranquil property that delivers a relaxed country lifestyle with far-reaching views over the surrounding rural landscape of rolling hills and forests.
A private laneway welcomes you to the property, winding through an avenue of oaks to reveal the elegant split-level home nestled amongst established gardens and trees. Beautifully presented and maintained, the residence has a northern aspect overlooking the huge private dam, with views and garden outlook from every room.
Entry is to the upper level of the home where there are 4 bedrooms – the master and second bedrooms both featuring the superb views and with access to the wide balcony. The spacious central open plan lounge-dining area also opens to the balcony and outdoor terraces, providing plenty of space for outdoor living and entertaining. On this level also is the country-style kitchen, 2 bathrooms plus powder room.
Downstairs there is a large second living area/billiard room that opens to another wide paved terrace, plus 5th bedroom. This area could be used for additional accommodation, home office or studio.
With 5 securely fenced paddocks, long creek boundary and the large dam (surface area of approx. 1 acre), the property is suited to a wide variety of uses – horses, alpacas, sheep, vineyard or intensive vegetable gardening. The property is a safe haven for birds, kangaroos, echidnas and countless other native animals.
A rare and spectacular property…perfectly quiet and secluded yet close to the restaurants, cafes and browse-friendly stores of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.
