At the end of a quiet lane amidst a serene and secluded wonderland sits this striking sculptural residence overlooking approx. 6.5 ha of gently undulating cleared and natural forest bushland. A huge sparkling dam/lake fed by the Coliban river to the Loddon river creates stunning vistas and a calming atmosphere; the perfect backdrop for listening to wind song whilst spotting thriving bird life and native animals.
This bespoke solid pale-brick home exudes an earthy sense of post-modernism, owing to its curved roof line built to resemble a gum leaf. With exposed internal timber pillars, soaring messamate-lined hardwood ceilings, exposed brick walls, and double-height angular glazing enclosing a grand sun-drenched greenhouse and elegant arched brick entry.
Centrally positioned the light and airy open plan kitchen and lounge/dining create the idyllic haven for relaxed living and easy entertaining, shrouded by a dramatic double height curved ceiling and warmed by a Ned Kelly woodfire heater. A master suite with ensuite, walk-in robes and raked ceilings opens onto an east-facing deck; the perfect lake-viewing spot during alfresco morning breakfasts as the sun first peaks through the forest. At the opposite end of the house, 2 additional spacious bedrooms with walk-in robes share a bathroom, whilst a good-sized laundry/wet room offering ample storage provides easy external access.
Paved landscaping, lush lawns and an historic Irish stone wall frame the home, whilst the beautiful forest of Candlebark, Manna and Peppermint gums beyond enrich the clean and crisp air. A small studio with loft bedroom nestles in the forest on the lake’s edge, providing a wonderful summer house for evening BBQ’s or sleepovers.
A huge artist studio, workshop or home office completes this amazing home. Lyonville is a quiet hamlet only 15 minutes to the popular tourist towns of Daylesford, Trentham, Kyneton and Woodend and only 1 hour and 20 min to Melbourne.
