Set privately behind a pine hedge and located in the highly sought after township of Malmsbury, within a 5 minute drive from the freeway and 10 minutes to the vibrant township of Kyneton.
This wonderful property is sure to suit discerning buyers looking for that peaceful home with the added bonus of generous office spaces. Being flexible with numerous zones it can also suit someone looking for a home with a Gallery/Tai Chi studio or someone looking for that Air BNB getaway for extra income.
Beautifully designed by local architect Terry Summers, the house is built around three zones, and as the current owner expressed, the house has a great humility whilst being almost perfect to live in. Understated in its design, it is fused into the landscape and is a house that would prefer to be looked from rather than looked at. It is oh' so private and situated on a hill on the outskirts of the welcoming Malmsbury village.
The 3 acres has been beautifully planted with a mixture of native and northern hemisphere plants creating surprising nooks and beautiful vistas.
The first of the zones is the main entrance to the house and accesses the studio space. The studio currently has two rooms, one a large space for tai chi and the other a beautiful office, art studio or bedroom. The light filled hallway connecting the pods, accesses one of three bathrooms and the laundry.
The main section of the home is a joy, with a large open plan living area with soaring ceilings, a private snug alongside the main bedroom with en-suite and small office nook.
The third zone has two bedrooms, bathroom and a small sitting area. The flexibility of the floor plan, the fantastic space for one or two people and the ability to grow as visitors come and go, has an ease that is hard to find.
The private plantings protect the house from the road and, thus, to understand how special this home is you have to visit. On a frivolous note, we were wondering how we would entice people to leave at the end of inspections.
