1534 Mount Macedon Road, MOUNT MACEDON VIC 3441
(Woman’s World Jan 1 1922)
A story of two city bred Australian women both of whom ‘’surfeited with the gay social life of the city and suffering from ill-health turned their backs on the ease and comfort of city life to wrestle their health and a home from the wild virgin forests of Mount Macedon. With no training, minimal capital and little else but a wonderful heritage of pluck and indomitable courage which never understands defeat that was left them by their pioneering ancestors, they started rural life on a few acres of thickly wooded, bracken – tangled hillside’’.
With only one change of family and more than 100 years on and lovingly cared for ‘’Boytah’’ has stood the test of time proudly standing in its original rustic splendor in the most stunning of mountain foothill settings. With wonderful established flowering, vegetable and fruit gardens, pristine filtered bushland, sunny lawn areas shaded by mature English trees and a beautiful natural swimming pool. Sited to enhance its long views and north westerly aspect “Boytah” now presents as a wonderful private lifestyle property or permanent home that respects its rustic heritage whilst tastefully introducing wonderful bespoke elements to create a quintessential Australian country escape.
Of cedar construction, with striking timber flooring and vaulted ceilings the home has a warmth and ambience that is palpable, it exudes strength and character and offers a traditional yet practical floorplan that includes three light filled bedrooms, a well-appointed bathroom, warm and welcoming lounge with large picture windows as well as a stunning dining space with light bathed window seat. The kitchen is country original with new gas / electric fired range, original brick fire place and quaint server. The lower level hides a fully self-contained studio, with character in abundance. It offers multiple opportunities – caretaker, granny flat, teenage retreat or short / long stay accommodation (STCA).
Located on the sunny northern slopes of Mount Macedon, in the vicinity of Braemar College and although only minutes from trendy Woodend’s shops, cafes and schools the property offers the most in tranquil privacy.’’Boytah’’ is a hidden gem of the Macedon ranges
