Nestled in the rolling hills of Lauriston, not five minutes' drive from the historic and thriving community of Kyneton and the start of the freeway to Melbourne, sits one of the finest equine properties in the region.
The property has been set up, with a love of animals in mind, by a couple well known within the Australian film industry for the training of animals. Together they have worked their magic in this place of stunning natural beauty with its' sense of peace and calm. Hidden from the road by a large, manicured hedge, the property's 109 acres roll out across a beautiful little valley with a spring-fed creek, lined with native trees, running through its centre
The equine facilities really are second to none. There is a fully roofed, 18 metre round yard with a sand floor, rubber lined walls and two sets of double gates; four dams, two of which are spring fed; a large stable complex; huge enclosed foaling yards; sheltered and unsheltered day yards; and a 80m x 40m fully enclosed sand based horse arena. The list goes on. Simply, it has everything you could ever want or need on an equine property.
The residence is a romantic Victorian two-bedroom weatherboard cottage, hidden in a grove of wattle, blackwood and gum trees. With the charm of yesterday, the living area with an open fireplace, a bathroom and a charming kitchen, complete with a potbelly fire and a sunroom. And, while the house is country-style living at its best, it is beautifully cosy and bright, with high ceilings and the charm of yesteryear.
There is also a second living quarters in a two-storey outbuilding, complete with one bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom, perfect for use as guest quarters or a worker's cottage.
This property is a worthy home to Thowra, the Silver Brumby in the 1993 film starring Russell Crowe and Jedda the dog in Baz Lurhman's Australia.
