HARCOURT - 191 Eagles Road


Situated in a peaceful rural valley, on a private and serene 25 acres, surrounded by a lovely garden, is this Tuscan style Mudbrick home and studio. The home is surrounded by grape vine draped verandahs looking out over the rural aspect and across to Mt Alexander.
Warm and welcoming, the home features slate floors, timber lined ceilings, beautiful timber windows to frame the view, three wood heaters and reverse cycle airconditioning at either end of the home – economically run with the solar system. Entry to the home is via a large covered outdoor living area surrounded by gardens, which can also function as a four car carport.
There is a spacious country style kitchen with a gourmet five burner Smeg range, a wood fired Nectre bread oven and a central island bench that doubles as a preparation area and a casual dining spot to seat up to 10. Perfect for socialising with guests and a glass of wine while you prepare dinner. Adjacent to this is a dining area and large airy lounge. This features a rustic chimney with wide mantelpiece, wood heater and beautiful slate floors.
There is another separate lounge that allows a more private retreat and overlooks the open paddocks and stands of gums. The three bedrooms have built in robes, the master having a whole wall of robes and French doors out to the verandah. There is a newly renovated family bathroom which features striking pressed-tin splashbacks, a large bath for relaxing in, a free standing shower and a timber vanity. There is a separate w.c. and built in storage. The family sized laundry has plenty of bench space for organizing the washing with extra storage and an external exit.
At right angles to the home, forming a sheltered courtyard surrounding the frog pond is the large mudbrick studio that is just ripe for conversion to a homestay or guest house. There is a large room with timber windows and a recycled red brick floor with wood heater and insulated straw lined ceilings that makes for a romantic bedroom or wonderful art studio – which could possibly be divided into smaller rooms again. There is another large room that could easily be re-fitted to provide a kitchen, bathroom and living area (STCA). Behind this is a four bay storage area perfect for farm machinery or storing the boat and caravan. There is power throughout the whole building.
In addition there is a five bay garage complex that includes a car pit, just perfect for the car collector or home mechanic. There are two rain water tanks of 22,000 litres and an additional dam tank that supplies the w.c. and the garden. The garden has been supplied with 8 water points allowing for irrigation of the extensive vegetable garden and netted home orchard. In addition there are old fruit trees including an almond and peach, chestnuts, a magnificent established oak tree that shades the house in Summer and a small commercial berry patch of raspberries and blueberries that are sold at the farmgate and by order.
The 25 acres (10.11HA) is divided into 7 paddocks including a house paddock and dam paddock. The fencing is in good order, the soil is fertile, in a good season as many as 70 round bales of hay have been cut and there are small yards.
Tranquil, private and serene this property is accessed off a sealed road, is a minute from Harcourt Primary School, the Mountain Bike Track, the local wood fired bakery, produce store and cafe and centrally located for access to all the larger surrounding townships of Castlemaine, Kyneton and Bendigo. With NBN and mains power it is perfect for a small rural enterprise or simply as a restful retreat and lifestyle property.
