Exhale. You have uncovered your future.
From the moment you enter into the epic surrounds of the magical Oak & Monkey Puzzle, you can’t help but relax.
Privately situated well back from the scenic Ballan-Daylesford Road, this lovingly and extensively renovated home and garden offers the opportunity to take in local history while delighting in modern conveniences. Originally built as an 1800s post office, Oak & Monkey Puzzle hints at the past while offering everything you could need for your future.
Situated on 5 acres, the home is surrounded by established gold rush era trees (including its namesake Monkey Puzzle and Oaks as well as Spruce, Pine and Douglas Fir), 2 fully-fenced paddocks and an original Nissen Hut on site. Designed by an internationally acclaimed and award-winning landscape architect, the lush surrounds offer the chance for tranquil personal reflection, as well as entertaining, bespoke events, weddings, photoshoots and retreats.
Wide wraparound verandahs hug the property’s generously appointed 3 bedroom weatherboard home, which has been extensively and tastefully renovated, retaining original historic features (including original earth and timber feature walls, high ceilings and timber floors), while offering a classic, modern take on country living.
Included within Country Style’s “Dream Homes” and a regular shoot venue for publications including Women’s Weekly and The Design Files, the home offers 3 bedrooms (including a large master with parquetry flooring and French doors out to the garden), 2 bathrooms (both with full-size baths and spectacular views over the garden), study, large living room complete with fireplace, hydronic gas heating throughout, mud room, library, a kitchen that home cooks dream about, complete with European appliances, a wood stove and a large central island, large dining with fireplace and a larder / pantry perfect for storing food grown in the garden. In addition, there is a cosy loft (accessible by original 1800’s stairs) that overlooks the garden and can act as a guest bedroom or additional study.
This is truly a property that transforms with the seasons. In addition to the picking gardens, berry terrace and kitchen gardens (all connected by a lawn spine), the home opens out to orchards and a citrus grove, meadows, Birch forests and formal Hornbeam tree plantings.
A standalone studio, beautifully created within a converted shipping container and complete with expansive decked entertaining area offers the perfect work-from-home arrangement, a great space for hosting workshops / retreats or an additional room for guests. In addition, the garden also includes a storage barn and workshop, wood storage, chook house and garden sheds.
Oak and Monkey Puzzle is so much more than a property. It is an experience – a breathtaking one – you now have the rare opportunity to own.
