Wheatsheaf 344 Sharpes Lane
Self-sustaining property set on 5 acres, smell the fresh air!
Located in quiet Wheatsheaf directly adjacent to the Wombat State Forest and just minutes to Daylesford and Glenlyon this environmentally friendly property is one not to miss.
The light filled home is nestled into fragrant bushland and features two good sized bedrooms and one bathroom with a unique mosaic shower / bath. A spacious living/dining area heated by wood fire is adjacent to the rustic kitchen with gas appliances and a large freestanding reclaimed timber bench.
Built to showcase the use of natural and reclaimed materials the north facing, solar passive, self-sustained straw bale home is totally off the grid with the use of gravity fed tank water, septic system, solar-power with ample battery storage and bottled gas. A locally constructed internal stone wall acts as a heat sink and complements the superior insulation of the straw bale-walls to retain heat in winter and to keep the house naturally cool in summer.
Outside the property is set on 5 acres approx. with stone paving and a large lawn surrounding the house which then overlooks the forest and dam, there are also a number of outbuildings for storage including another straw bale structure which with some TLC could be a fantastic studio.
The property is perfect as either permanent living or a weekender!
