55, Eighteenth Street, HEPBURN, VIC 3461

Aesthetically beautiful, environmentally ethical and strongly sustainable for a quality family lifestyle

Completely in harmony with its natural surrounds paired with a symphony of birdsong, this durable Rammed Earth House is spacious, soul-soothing and imbued with strong sustainable and ethical environmental principles. Presenting a rare opportunity to live life the way Mother Nature intended, the rural retreat has been crafted with the superior insulation quality of thermal mass to keep the temperature cooler in summer and warmer in winter and to keep your energy costs down while helping to save the environment’s natural resources.

Feel your stress melt away as you enter the inviting residence offering two living areas – one on the north side and the other on the south. The well-designed layout caters effortlessly to multi-generational living requirements, guests, friend or two entities/families who may be looking to buy a holiday home given that the main ensuite bedroom is peacefully set well apart from two more bedrooms and a fourth bedroom that could be adapted into a home office for those who need to work remotely.

And when you really want to get away from it all to pursue your hobbies, indulge your painting skills or practice some yoga poses, escape to the nurturing environment of the mezzanine loft-style studio constructed from recycled materials and gazing out to bushland and prolific wildlife.

Spanning a sprawling 2.12 hectares (5.23 acres), the low-maintenance home’s extensive list of features includes a recycling water system, double glazed windows, Jotul slow-burning wood combustion heater in the front living area, gas heater in the rear living room, dam water for the garden, two rainwater tanks with a total capacity of 45,000 litres, a mix of recycled and original doors, restored leadlight windows (some Art Deco), and Blackwood benches in the big kitchen.

This wonderful way of life is ready and waiting for you to enjoy in a quiet location that’s close to the bath house, general store, pubs, Hepburn Golf Course and the Palais. Daylesford Centre is 5kms away and walking trails to Blowhole Regional park, Bryces Flat Picnic Area and links to the Wombat State Forest Trails and the Great Dividing Trail.
