Idyllic Rural Retreat Set on 10 acres of prime land, this elegant Mount Macedon property is an idyllic rural retreat. At the end of a tree-lined driveway lies a modern country estate with a spectacular double height wall of glass that floods the home with light and incredible views of Mt Macedon and the surrounding countryside. At the heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen with its large island bench and an adjacent living area. Soaring ceilings provide light and space and a wall of bi-fold doors open onto the terrace, offering views of established gardens, the spring-fed dam and beyond. Off the kitchen is a formal lounge room with open fireplace and another large family room which also opens out to a terrace. As well as multiple living and dining areas, this floor has a study with built-in storage, a central bathroom with separate powder room, a laundry with external access, and 3 of the 4 bedrooms, all with built-in robes and the master with its own ensuite. Large windows also connect these rooms to the covered pergola and garden. A spiral staircase leads to the spacious 4th bedroom and large walk-in robe on the mezzanine level which offers spectacular mountain views and a true sense of calm. Ducted heating and cooling, double glazed windows, hardwood flooring and quality carpet, smart wiring ensure the home is comfortable all year round. Pergolas surround the home offering shade and a tranquil place to sit and enjoy the garden, with its rolling lawn, established European trees, vegetable garden, ancient eucalypts and huge spring-fed dam, complete with jetty and views of the mount. There is also a pool that is currently covered with a deck but could be re-instated if desired. The fire pit and extensive garden lighting also ensures that this property can be enjoyed after sunset. Outside, there is a double carport, 4 bay shed, 2 bay machinery/garden shed, stables and extensive fencing making this a perfect property for keeping horses or other animals. Only 10 minutes from Mount Macedon’s school, café and pub, and minutes from the Calder Freeway and 30 minutes to Melbourne airport (45 minutes to the CBD), this is a perfect country retreat.
