Sharing the neighbourhood with Hanging Rock and within a three-minute drive of Newham Primary School and great coffee at the General Store, Cedar Lodge is a quality-built country house on about 3.24 hectares of horse and family-heaven.
Fab rural lifestyle ambitions can be supported by proximity to V/Line services, schools, sports facilities and well-regarded eateries in both Woodend and Kyneton, 10 and 15 minutes away respectively. The views to be had are pretty special – Cobaw Ranges, the Jim Jim, farmland and the vines of Hanging Rock Winery.

If it’s horses you love, the property comes with a ménage, three stables, tack room, hot wash and paddocks with troughs.
The house, with verandahs wrapping three sides, has a decor that salutes the richness of timber – it lines most floors, walls and ceilings, with wall plaster serving as occasional leavering.
There are four fitted bedrooms, as well as a study/sitting room (leadlight door to verandah), which provides access to an attic retreat plus in-roof storage. The main bedroom has an en suite; others share the main bathroom and separate toilet.
A good-sized lounge room, with slightly vaulted ceiling, connects with the living hub and kitchen where a wood heater keeps things cosy. A bay window at the sitting end frames garden and distant vistas. The kitchen has a classic country look, with some of the cupboards painted a soft green as contrast to lots of wood.
Outdoors, amid the beauty of European trees – including ash, liquidambar and oak – is an in-ground pool within steps of the full-length side verandah.
A chicken coop, vegie garden, orchard, two water tanks, two dams and a bore further cement the rural appeal.
Other features include electric panel heaters, split-system and a 4.5kW solar system.
