RURAL RETREAT IN SHEPHERDS FLAT BETWEEN DAYLESFORD AND CASTLEMAINE
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a picturesque and versatile rural property. Set on approx. 38 acres [15.38 ha] of fenced pasture with mature gums, this two-bedroom cottage is in an idyllic setting. Sit on the veranda and enjoy scenic views or watch the wonderful sunsets.
Only a 12-minute drive to Daylesford, just over a 20-minute drive from Castlemaine, and 90 mins to Melbourne. Enter via the long drive, past the dam and the iconic rural windmill to arrive at this cute home. Comprising two bedrooms and a family bathroom, a large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area has recently been on the permanent rental market. Still, it could be your family home, weekend getaway or small farm holding.
Situated in the historic goldfields setting with long views, the house has warm and cosy wood fire heating in the winter, making this a very comfortable lifestyle retreat. The tranquil, private views from the verandah will delight you, and you will never want to leave.
The fully fenced property is divided into several paddocks and has 2 dams, a seasonal creek, a windmill pump, a large 3-section, high-bay shed with power connected, a stock loading ramp and water tanks. The land is currently used to agist cattle. Still, it could equally be used for horses, or other stock. Wildlife abounds with diverse birdlife attracted and plenty of kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas.
