1712, Daylesford Ballarat Road, NEWLYN, VIC 3364

Outstanding Views and 1850s Farmhouse Character

A piece of Newlyn history on 7.53 hectares/18 acres (approx.) of land offers five-bedroom spaciousness and sweeping countryside views. It’s a rarely found combination, perfect for a rural lifestyle at the foot of Scrub Hill.

One of the first timber and stone farmhouses to be built after gold prospectors turned to farming the area’s rich red soil, this is ideal for permanent living or an impressive weekender. Wake up to big country views all around you and appreciate having three zoned living and dining areas, a renovated Bosch and Smeg kitchen with north-facing views of Scrub Hill, two bathrooms, and Victorian architectural features.

Stone fences, a wraparound veranda and two outbuildings are reminders of this home’s origins, and the interior retains classic leadlight, high pressed-metal ceilings, timber panelling and ornate fireplace surrounds. They have stood the test of time, and are the perfect backdrop to refined country living. Today’s updates include 45,000-litre water tank storage, refreshed internal and external paintwork, ceiling insulation, and improved roofing.

Outdoor living is designed to make the most of the breathtaking surroundings. The deck is where you can soak up countryside views, and a walk around the garden reveals camellias, daphne, hydrangeas and spring bulbs that have grown here for decades. Pull up a chair on the veranda or find summer shade under one of the large trees that dot this fine property.

Newlyn is loved for its country serenity and sense of community. It’s six minutes to Creswick, 15 minutes to Daylesford and 20 minutes to Ballarat, putting it within easy reach of wine and food destinations, shops, day spas and tourism hubs.
