Rural lifestyle Property With So Much More
This well fenced rural property is located around 45 minutes drive from Ballarat and just 10 minutes drive to Maryborough Township and is set on approximately 20 acres (12 acres cleared, the remaining 8 acres bush) nestled on the eastern edge of the Paddy’s Ranges State Park.
The 1970's built mud brick and western red cedar home named "Aminya" (an indigenous name meaning “Quiet Place”) is both rustic and unique in the sense of feeling like “home” as soon as you enter.
Down stairs offers an open plan kitchen/dining area with cast iron fireplace, while the kitchen is equipped with electric cooking, glass splashbacks, a “walk in” pantry, and plenty of storage as well as a wood combustion stove.
French doors lead through to the front sitting room with two bay windows which make the most of the scenic views, but the highlight of this room has to be the cathedral ceilings, slate floor and leadlight windows (shared with the family dining space).
A second living area has beautiful Golden Cypress timber floors, exposed beams and Kent wood fireplace.
Also located on the ground floor is the bathroom, laundry and a study which could be used as fourth bedroom.
Upstairs has been recently completely recarpeted and hosts the master bedroom which has built in roomy drawers and air conditioning, a walk-in wardrobe, and two single bedrooms each with built-in storage.
Services: 4kw Solar system, both mains & tank water, power, phone, landline telephone, bottle gas & septic.
Land: 20 acres is made up of 12 acres of cleared land which includes house and 2 paddocks, remaining is bush land. Good sized dam and well fenced.
Infrastructure: Above ground chlorinated pool and deck (which also doubles as approximately 60,000 litres of fire-fighting water if ever needed), 6 water tanks holding 25,000 gallons (or 110,000 litres) of rainwater in total, secure fox-proofed chook pen, double carport, hay shed, mustering yards, shearing and machinery shed with concrete floor and power, storage shed and an expansive enclosed orchard (approximately 35 metres by 12 metres) with over 35 fruit trees.
If that isn’t enough to entice you, then the bonus of the self-contained western red cedar cottage (named "Ella's Cottage") is ideal for a family with an elderly parent, teenage child or visitors. Built in 2001, the cottage consists of 1 bedroom with BIR, cathedral ceiling lounge and kitchen/dining area, and bathroom and separate toilet.
This property has so much more on offer and needs to be inspected to truly appreciate the lifestyle.
