A beautiful country cottage sitting on a 1-acre block including manicured gardens, a large backyard and backing onto the Little Steavenson River.

The home consists of three bedrooms. The master is a large room with QS bed, the second bedroom also has a QS bed and the third room has 2 sets of bunks.

There is a large lounge room/living area/kitchen and a small second lounge room. 1 toilet and shower. The main lounge has a large plasma TV, DVD and digital set-top box. The second lounge area has a large LCD tv ready to connect to a BYO XBOX or PS4 etc.

The house is fitted with modern, Australian colonial style furniture and there is a Coonara wood heater for winter and evaporated cooling for summer plus a reverse-cycle a-c unit in the living area.

The front garden includes manicured garden and rose beds lovingly maintained. The back garden is mainly lawn and lovely shady trees and backs on to the Little Steavenson river, just 20 metres from the back door. Also outdoors is a deck with BBQ, and a large outdoor dining table. Please note there is no fencing protecting small children from the river.

Across the road is a huge family park that includes BBQs, swings, skate ramp, a bike track, tennis courts and basketball rings as well as plenty of room to run around or kick the footy.

Buxton is about 30 mins from Healesville, over the Black Spur. Marysville and Lake Mountain is 10 mins away and Lake Eildon about half an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Weekender Great weekend had by all. It was so calm and serene sitting out by the river in the evening. My son had a fantastic time riding around the place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely property, perfect for a weekend away. We really enjoyed our stay at Buxton Gardens. The house was very clean, spacious rooms and a well fitted out kitchen. If you are booking this house just for one night you will need to bring your own linen which is a bit of an inconvience. The host was very responsive, but not overly friendly, we didn't feel that he went out of his way to help us. Overall though, we would defintely recommend staying at this property. It would also be lovely in summer as there is a big backyard backing onto a creek which was lovely. The house is also very child friendly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed, not worth the price. Gardens were beautiful and sorry to say that's where it ended. Bathroom door had no handle (just a hole) and didn't shut, so no privacy. Went to get an extra blanket for the bed at night and it was very dusty and had bits of grass in it. Not enough wood left for 2 nights to use the heater, so we had to buy more. Dishwasher leaked when turned on, Clearly the house hasn't been cleaned for months. Not good enough for the price we paid. And no trampoline, boys heart broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful little house by the river! It was a last minute decision to go for a weekend stay and we were totally glad to have found this property. The place was spacious and clean. We have everything we needed, nice little river at the backyard and playground just opposite the property. Overall is value for money. We will be back again! Thank you.
