After trying to sell my expensive lifestyle property privately (as an ex-real estate agent) I went to Jellis Craig to extend my marketing reach into Melbourne, via their inter-office sharing and quality marketing materials. Enquiries immediately picked up and my property was sold for my listed price and preferred settlement in 43 days. Service was extremely responsive and feedback on each viewing was provided immediately, which is extremely important for any vendor. I was kept in the loop once negotiations commenced, which was also valued. Well done Jellis Craig Castlemaine Branch!
22 Merrifield Street, Castlemaine
Country retreat on small acreage
The property is connected to town water, mains gas, the NBN and retains many period features including an open fireplace and box window in the sitting room, original Baltic flooring and high ceilings throughout. The home has gas ducted heating, ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living spaces and a recently renovated kitchen and bathroom. The 360mm solid stone walls afford a deliciously cool ambient temperature over summer. Coupled with 3.5 kw solar power, a new eco-Waste Water Treatment plant and a massive 170,000 litres of rainwater storage to drought-proof the garden, makes this property sustainable for the 21st century.
Situated on 1.16 ha, which includes tennis court and fabulous extensive stone landscaped terraced gardens, filled with an abundance of roses, perennials, citrus trees, vegetables and fruit. Outbuildings include a double carport, with adjacent space for trailer or caravan, a woodshed and three other buildings providing scope to 'do your own thing'. These include: a rare 1850's two-roomed stone Gold Rush building, a huge bespoke timber post and beam barn (108 sqm) suitable for a large artist's studio or other hobby pursuit and a Federation-era garage (48 sqm) as a workshop, garden room, or conversion to extra accommodation, allowing a flexibility in options to fit your own needs.
Located in the exclusive Castlemaine Botanical gardens precinct where historic homes are tightly held, this is a rare gem providing the opportunity to live your own rural dream, yet so close to everything.
