Only a 10-minute drive to shops in Newstead, a 15-minute drive to Daylesford just over a 20-minute drive from Castlemaine, and an hour and a half to Melbourne. There is a real inside-outside flow to this home aided by several French doors opening onto the verandah from the master bedroom and the living areas.
