'The Hermitage' is situated in an attractive bushland setting 4 kilometres from the Castlemaine Post Office.
'The Hermitage' was built in the late 1850's by a German immigrant family who constructed it of local sandstone with mud brick inner walls.
The home has been lovingly restored and extended to approximately 45 squares making it a perfect family home. A Heat Charm wood heater provides warmth to the living area. Two other rooms have open fire places.
The kitchen has a dishwasher and gas cooker.
Two rooms are currently used as offices complete with 2 phone lines to support a home business. The large garage has space for 3 cars and a work shop.
'The Hermitage' Bed and Breakfast occupies the top storey. It is a very large two bedroom Bed and Breakfast unit with a private entrance.
'The Hermitage' is highly desirable due to its beautiful, quiet location. The property of 2.5 hectares consists of the house in its attractive garden setting surrounded by grassed farmland. Wildlife abounds with daily visits by kangaroos and many bird species.
A large sandstone building and other outdoor sheds cater for all needs.
A 45,000 litre underground tank, pump, powerful sprays and fire hoses have been installed for fire protection. The property is serviced by town water which can be supplemented from the dam if necessary.
The separate titled bush block of 4 hectares has many lovely large eucalyptus trees as its highlighting feature and a very large dam that collects water from the hill behind and run-off from the roads. Poly pipes are connected to the valve at the dam and water can be gravity fed to the house gardens.
This property has the potential for hobby farming, goats or sheep, orchards or vineyards.
