Beautifully nestled within approximately seven acres, this recently updated residence is both spacious and sustainable, integrating smart passive solar design with modern comfort and style.

Close to town on the Daylesford side of Ballarat, this Mount Rowan property is a private and peaceful oasis.

The beautiful gardens are adorned with established native and exotic trees, and carefully maintained flower beds that hold an assortment of annuals, herbaceous perennials and shrubs. An in-ground controlled sprinkler system helps to ensure the gardens continue to thrive. There is also an orchard producing organic edibles, and a natural abundance of bird life thanks to all the flora.

The stately home, Peppermint Park, is accessed via a long, gently curving, tree-lined driveway. 

The house has plenty of bespoke features and comprises six bedrooms, five bathrooms, three independent living zones, a separate study area, wine room, triple carport, and a large, lock up garage/workshop storage area that’s compatible with home-based business activities.

The property is a nirvana for kids and family pets. Extensive paved and grassed outdoor spaces cater for active sports, play, relaxed recreation and grand scale entertaining. There’s also a tennis court for those who enjoy a casual volley or lighthearted tournament with family and friends.

The hard work has all been done here. All that’s required are your personal touches to make it your own special place.
