44 Hillview Rd Barkers Creek, an off grid 3 Bedroom owner built home, self sufficient mud-brick property consisting of 32 ha partial treed and magical surrounding views of the local Mount Alexander Shire and beyond.
Upon arriving at the handcrafted unique front gate, it is evident that you are entering a secluded paradise of golden sunset hues, coupled with the feeling of complete privacy, yet without the loss of convenience to the local bustling community of Castlemaine just a short 11 km’s away. Another short trip to Bendigo is conveniently available within 30 km’s, and a speedy relaxing journey to Melbourne is within 1.5 hours of train travel, a travel modality many avail themselves of whilst commuting to our major city.
The four active dams are an absolute delight to the eye, great for swimming, attracting beautiful local wildlife, coupled with meandering walking tracks with eye catching lofty cascading views in all directions
The open plan kitchen/dining area is adorned with white washed walls and a hearty wood stove which heats the entire house as well as providing a constant supply of hot water during those chilly winter months. The wide windowed lounge area has beautiful valley views, as does the rustic stone walled bathroom. The laundry/toilet are within the large bathroom area and there is also a roomy second bedroom on this level.
The homely kitchen boasts a combination of stainless appliances and cypress timber tops and cupboard with a rustic feel throughout the home.
Upstairs hosts the main bedroom, landing and third bedroom. Winter nights are warm and cosy across the whole second level, a wonderful feature to be able to feel warm throughout the whole house. There is an outside deck area, but once again with this property, the stunning views are just a reminder of why this is such a rare find and a unique lifestyle opportunity.
Outside and adjacent to the home is the main shed/workshop facility. Here you will find lots of room for your tools or canoes for the dam, or mountain/motor bikes to adventure onto the acreage for some fun times. What ever your dream, this property can support many different aspects to rural living activities.
This property boasts views, which cannot be captured by surrounding land owners, and often makes it a focal talking point for visitors as well as the current owner, who never ceases to be captivated by the breathtaking views and connection to wildlife watching and the beauty of his land.
The infrastructure is already in place, the views are never going anywhere and the property, like the local bees, is swarming with features and potential for its new occupants to cultivate their own lifestyle, whilst blending into this gorgeous pocket of local history. .
