5, Maric Court, Coomoora, VIC 3461

Bespoke Straw Bale Home on Inspired Surrounds

It is impossible to visit 5 Maric Court and not feel inspired. Admiration flows for the bespoke craftmanship of this straw bale construction, respect for its minimal environmental footprint and a sense of rejuvenation sparked by the 1.2 acres (approx.) of exquisite native and edible gardens.

It must be mentioned this property featured on ABC Gardening Australia and upon arrival it will be no surprise why. An established, layered native garden of grevilleas, banksias, hakeas and snow gums (amongst many others) softly frame the home. Step outside and put together a stunning floral arrangement for the table and friends or draw inspiration for your creative pursuits. The spectacular array of native birds, butterflies and bees are a reminder of the country haven you have entered.

A solid Australian hardwood front door and the lime rendered exterior sets the scene for the sophisticated yet earthy tones you will discover within. Take off your boots and jacket in the mudroom, large enough to accommodate a home office. Here, a huge natural timber framed window maintains connection with the outdoors, a poignant feature continued throughout.

Timeless design choices reveal themselves in the spacious open plan kitchen, meals and living area. Consider burnished concrete floors, high ceilings, feature lighting, an ambient Mosrso wood heater and a built-in window seat. The kitchen brings more warmth and style, boasting a reclaimed hardwood island bench contrasting beautifully against the charcoal cabinetry, European appliances and a deep pantry.

Three of the four bedrooms have floor to ceiling built-in-robes and the master, with a generous 5x3m footprint, enjoys direct access to the outdoors. These are serviced by the family bathroom with earthy tones and textured tiles, a stepless shower and soaker bath. A laundry (large enough to accommodate a second bathroom) with excellent storage, a powder room and three built in cupboards fit for family living, completes this wing of the home.

This is a home for all seasons; with its incredible thermal properties and passive solar design it is warm throughout winter and cool come summer. Awarded an eight-star energy rating, the construction boasts an R13 insulation rating with double glazing and a 6.5kw solar system.

Outside, there are multiple spaces to entertain, relax and admire the picturesque surrounds. A north facing rear deck of recycled timber flows from the living space and a second, covered alfresco area is perfect for the warmer months.

Beyond, incredible passion and skill supported by rich red volcanic soil deliver the thriving kitchen garden, ready for you to enjoy. Harvest from the established orchard with over 60 fruit trees and the organic veggie patch and greenhouse. Collect eggs from deluxe chicken coup with solar powered automatic door.

Additional notables include; two car carport and large adjoining shed, potting shed and a shared bore.

Nestled in the peaceful hamlet of Coomoora, just 3km from Daylesford, 7 minutes to Glenlyon, 35 minutes to Ballarat and just over an hour from Melbourne, there will be no looking back when you make the decision of a lifetime to move your family to this outstanding property.
