Tranquil Retreat Surrounded by Natural Beauty

Discover the ultimate city escape, where cabin life and country serenity can be yours on 15.87 hectares (39 acres approx.) of unspoilt bushland. Immersed in nature and ultra-private, this is a magical property for starting the day with a walk along your Kangaroo Creek kilometre-long (approx.) boundary, spotting the platypus, koalas and kangaroos that visit, and seeing millions of stars when night falls.

Architect Michael Innes designed the off-grid north-facing home to capture spectacular views from all main rooms. It features free-flowing living and dining spaces, one bedroom and a bathroom with space to create more, high pitched ceilings, and Baltic pine floors. The kitchen features timber cabinetry and a gas-powered range, there’s a 5.6-kilowatt solar power system, and wall and ceiling insulation. The large fireplace is both a focal point and a source of warmth, and the classic bush verandah is sited for summer shade and keeping indoors comfortable.

There’s all the infrastructure you need, including 50,000 litres of tank-water storage, a recently installed shed with twin roller doors and a concrete base, and a vegetable garden for home-grown produce.

It’s easy to feel truly connected to the natural world as you cool off in the natural swimming hole or gaze out to golden wattle trees, varieties of eucalypts providing animal habitat, and district views.

Just one owner has nurtured this unspoilt haven and the home built by Bernard Sheldon-Williams since 1983. Now it can be yours for a country retreat or permanent living, close to Woolnough’s Crossing Mineral Springs. Porcupine Ridge is a five-minute drive to Glenlyon General Store, Daylesford is eight minutes away, and you can be in the Melbourne CBD in 90 minutes.
