Our lovely stone cottage is set on 6 acres of secluded native Australian bushland. The stone cottage is positioned on top of the hill in the heart of Chewton Bushlands and provides amazing views across to Mount Macedon and Mount Franklin. Enjoy your days and evenings looking out to the view. During summer spend the evenings enjoying the stars eating a BBQ dinner at the outdoor setting and in winter on those cold nights snug up in the front of fire or toast marshmallows over the fire pit.

The space
Ukamirra is "off the grid" with solar power, tank water and gas hot-water (like most properties in Chewton Bushlands). The cottage is made of local stone and is set on a large platform featuring native Australian plants. There are two bedrooms, both with queen size beds. A comfy lounge and separate kitchen/dining area. We share our property with the local wildlife, so you can expect kangaroos and many native birds on the property. This is a gorgeous, private and quiet place to relax and unwind.

During summer the house stays relatively cool given the stone construction and each room is provided a pedestal fan. There is an old oak tree on the platform that provided the perfect spot to take shelter from the sun for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All doors and windows have fly screens.

During winter months there is plenty of wood to keep the fire boxs burning and you can enjoy star gazing sitting around the fire pit.

The solar system has an automatic backup generator (sound proofed and away from the house) so there is no concern about running short of power on those cloudy days.

Castlemaine and Chewton are 10 minutes drive away with lots of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and boutique stores with plenty to see and do.
