House of the Week | 33 Hamilton Way, Lockwood South | As new home on 9.6 acres

This modern and sustainably efficient custom-built home has four bedrooms, although one features an open wall between, which could easily be filled back in to provide a fifth bedroom. They all have built-in robes (the main with walk in robes) and ceiling fans.

There is a great rumpus room with abundant built-in storage cupboards plus a powder room adjacent. The separate, formal lounge leads off the dining space.

More storage, in the form of built in cupboards and a utility desk can be found as you move through to the dining area and kitchen.

A large, walk-in pantry contains shelving, cupboards, drawers and bench space, while the kitchen has double ovens, five-burner gas cooktop, dishwasher and good sized island, which also serves as a breakfast bar. Glass sliding doors open to a substantial undercover entertaining area complete with ceiling fans.

Five-zone climate control, ducted heating and cooling is installed throughout, cabled internet to each TV, and double-glazed windows are also in place. 

Outside features include the oversized double garage, a 7.5x9m shed with concrete floor, power and work benches, 280,000 litre water tank, dam and a 5kw solar system.

With a seasonal creek this 9.6 acres has established trees and abundant wildlife, including kangaroos, rabbits and various bird life.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of this gorgeous, private setting, only 12 minutes drive to Kangaroo Flat, 23kms to Bendigo CBD and within easy access to the Calder Highway to Melbourne.
