Here is a property that everyone will love. Privately situated behind a Photinia hedge, this quirky and attractive four bedroom and study family home has heaps of room for kids to play, plus a bonus room that will be coveted by every kid in the family. The well insulated property offers a green and clean lifestyle with eco-friendly features including the use of natural paints and building materials to most of the areas as well as double glazed windows. Town water is connected and there are two big water tanks. Its position due north makes for light and bright living areas for year-round comfort. Offering enough space for all its inhabitants without screaming excess, each space flows naturally through to the next. The entrance continues to the cosy family room/modern kitchen/dining area with wood heater and Daiken heating and cooling. Both this space and another living room opens to the garden and alfresco area. The ground floor bedrooms have built in robes, and there is a study. And what child or teenager wouldn’t love their very own loft bedroom retreat? This large domain with views to Mount Macedon is reached from a ladder in the living room, where they can watch the stars through Velux doubled glazed skylights, and dream dreams to their heart’s content. The laundry, 1.5 bathrooms and separate toilet complete the floor plan. Families will love the big backyard with plenty of room for a pool or tennis court, where organically grown mature fruit and nut trees, vegetable garden as well as fox proof chook house, cat/dog run and bird house reminds you of what it feels like to have space for all outdoor pursuits. A quirky surprise is the underground storage unit in the garden. Airtight and dry, it is perfect for cellaring wines, jams, sauces or even storing artwork within its cool environs. The home of an artist and her family, location and verdant surrounds are an important part of their Macedon lifestyle, where the village, cafes, bars, primary school, secondary schools bus stop, rail and sports oval are all just a short walk away. Why not be the next to experience it.
