Tranquil, eco-sustainable retreat on 40 acres in Glenlyon hamley
If you’re looking for a secluded, peaceful weekender or a tree change, this is your opportunity to snap up a 40 acre block of prime bush land in the popular hamlet of Glenlyon. This off grid home is located only 10 minutes from Daylesford, and just over an hour from Melbourne.
Upon entering through the front gates, the 300-metre gravel driveway leads you through your own natural bush setting, down to the relocated home nestled on approximately 1- 2 acres of cleared land, with views to a rain-fed dam and bush beyond.
The home offers 3 enormous bedrooms with extra high ceilings, all flooded in natural light. The two reception/living rooms each have combustion wood heaters, with the ceiling in the informal living room featuring a decorative ceiling reminiscent of the home’s art deco past. The kitchen is retro-styled, with plenty of workbenches, a gas stove, and loads of storage. The kitchen also provides a semi-open plan to the informal living room via its oversized servery. The bathroom is original, with a shower over the bath. There is a separate toilet, and the large laundry doubles as a handy storage area. Other features of the home include polished Baltic pine floors, a huge entertainment deck at the front, and enormous sash windows throughout, each with views to the surrounding trees. Adding to its sustainability, the home has white aluminium cladding over the weatherboards. Outdoors, there is ample opportunity to extend the gardens and entertainment areas further. With established dirt tracks throughout, this block is perfect for motorcycling, quad biking, or bushwalking. The property’s rear boundary is the Loddon River, where the sound of the trickling, mini waterfall enhances the serenity.
The home has room enough to permanently accommodate a family or provide the perfect space for you and your friends on weekend getaways. There is loads of opportunity to improve and restore this lovely character home.
