********* SPECIAL OFFERS********




This recently built seven star energy rated mud brick retreat is an extremely comfortable home away from home. It has a fantastic warm country feel and features recycled timbers throughout - floors, walls, ceilings, eaves, pillars and beams. A huge open plan dining/living area adjoins a fully equipped spacious kitchen with beautiful recycled ironbark bench tops, wood stove plus a conventional stove top/oven. At meal times, everyone can sit around the huge 18 seat dining table. There are also highlight feature windows to let in lots of natural light and rustic bush views. The polished floor boards in the kitchen/dining area have to be seen to be believed. This casual and comfortable area also features a very efficient bluestone double-sided fire place. It faces both the generous dining area and a spacious lounge room with 52" large screen TV with sound bar, DVD player and CD player. Thermostatically controlled hydronic panels heat the rest of the house very effectively. The home is an ideal temperature all year round - it stays cool in summer and warm in winter. You'll be comfortable all year round in the most idyllic and relaxed of settings.

There are five bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed with spacious walk-in robe. Three other bedrooms all have a double bed plus a set of bunks. The fifth bedroom has two sets of bunks. All bedrooms and wet areas have sound proofing.

The main bathroom has a claw foot bath with olde world taps and a stained glass light shade to complete the ambiance. There are two other separate bathrooms which both incorporate a shower & basin. There are then also two separate toilets, and a laundry, all making it very comfortable and user friendly for large families or groups. All wet areas also feature beautiful natural multi coloured slate flooring for that extra warm and rustic feel.

The large fully equipped games room has an interchangeable pool & table tennis table and a table soccer table. There is also another TV and DVD player in this area. More high feature windows allow more great views of the bush outside and the entry of lots more natural light. Another entertainment area outside has a timber outdoor setting and a barbeque, all under a generous shade sail. This is also adjacent to a well maintained cleared area for the kids to run, play games or for you to really spread out. We cater for every taste and age!

So relax, in not just a house, but a home that's just a stone's throw from town. Fully equipped including books and DVDs so you don't need to bring a thing to relax and unwind. Bring your family, friends or get a group together to enjoy this unique and special all-under-one-roof home. The secluded location also means you will have absolute privacy to totally unwind and not be worried about the neighbours!

Gumtree Spring has all the comforts of home in a beautiful location on the door step of Daylesford. You will have everything you need to make your time here comfortable, memorable and enjoyable.

Best of the best!

This home is so close to town that you can be part of the action if you want to be - award winning restaurants and cafes, exciting shopping, regional festivals, diverse markets and much more are all just 3 minutes drive away OR ....far enough away to lie back, relax and enjoy the quiet of the bush, the creek, the birds OR ....a short drive to see the sights of the surrounding area - the boutique wineries, extensive nature walks, beautiful lakes, renowned gardens, nearby historic towns, stunning period buildings, mineral springs, etc, etc.

Be as active or relaxed as you like - it's your choice and there's something for everyone. You might even get a visit from a kangaroo!

Daylesford 3 minutes by car;

Ballarat 40 mins by car;

Privacy and seclusion

This architect-designed mud brick master built home was crafted by skilled local tradesmen. It is one of the best examples of its type in the district and exudes character, quality and warmth thoughout. It truly is a home away from home. Set back from Trentham Road on a 5 acre bush block, it is ideally suited for privacy, seclusion and relaxation. There is a creek flowing through the property with two water feature ponds, and a view of the bush greets you from every room. The house is self sufficient with solar hot water(and gas boost), solar electricity panels, double-sided open wood fire place, hydronic heating and a huge rain water tank. The wonderfully restored and recycled ironbark & ghost gum timber comes from the historic Botany Bay woolsheds. It features throughout the house in many different ways. Pictures don't do justice to the warmth and impact when combined with the mud bricks and location. Come and see for yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very nice property with lots room This a very large property which comfortably accommodated our group of seven adults and seven children. The bathrooms were well appointed and very clean likewise the kitchen had everything we required. The heating system was very effective and we enjoyed the open fire. The games room was an asset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute winner! The photos don't do this house justice. 10 ladies stayed for the weekend. Well stocked kitchen, big table, beautiful open fire, comfy beds, plenty of room for all of us. Taxis collected us on Saturday night to go to the Lake House with no issues. A little tricky to find in the dark but good instructions to help find it. Highly recommended for a group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Warming Set deep amongst the beautiful trees, Gumtree springs feels like home away from home. The house is warm and cozy, yet extremely spacious enough even for our large family. And the kitchen is an absolute delight to use. Over the few times we have had the pleasure to use the house it has always been left tidy and clean. We will be back.
