On the banks of the Campaspe River, five minutes from the thriving rural communities of Kyneton and Malmsbury, sits a historic and unique landmark: Windmill Farm.
The property was established in 1851 by a pioneer-settler from England. He and his family built the homestead and the windmill ? a grand, circular tower made from local bluestone ? which remain the centerpieces of the property today. The windmill, while typical of its time in England, is incredibly rare in Australia and is the only one of its kind that survives in Victoria.
The current owner, an accomplished sculptor, has an intimate understanding of the poetry of the property, and has worked tirelessly to maintain it. Its history remains palpable, from the Egyptian grinding stones that were used in the mill over 150 years ago, to the original combine harvester that sits, statuesque, in the field.
The three bedroom, one bathroom homestead has been tastefully modernised where necessary, while its unique character has been impeccably preserved. Today, it is an ambient, light and elegant country retreat.
Windmill Farm sits on 75 acres of gardens and farmland, gently sloping down to an extensive river frontage along the Campaspe River. The gardens around the homestead have been tastefully pared back (with a little help from the current owners? horses). This has revealed, between the established English trees, the lines of the land, creating a landscape that is reminiscent of a private sculpture park.
With stables, a riding track, good bore water and grazing land, the property is also perfectly suited to horses or other stock.
This rare opportunity is not to be missed.
