Ding ding, next stop... Lauriston!
Ding ding, next stop... Lauriston! Let your imagination run wild at the thought of owning your very own cottage and 1920s tram in the Macedon Ranges countryside. Set on a delightful acre just 1 hour from Melbourne and 5 minutes from Kyneton, this enchanting property is awaiting its new owner. To top it off, a council approved planning permit for a 4 bedroom house is already in place, allowing room to expand if desired. The W-Class tram #410 is almost 100 years old, and if only the walls could talk! Affectionately known as 'Jean Claude Van Tram', it has been refurbished using materials chosen to compliment the existing structure. It offers a multitude of uses, the current owner ran it as a popular BnB and more recently as a work space and studio. The flexible layout features two living areas and a loft, which can accommodate two queen beds. There's space for a kitchenette with built in breakfast bar, a bathroom with shower over bath, and an efficient environmentally friendly (and odourless!) compost toilet. The split-system aircon/heating plus ceiling fan makes for a very comfortable tram ride. The charming cottage is just a few metres away. It contains a kitchen / living area, a bedroom which can accommodate a queen bed, an ensuite-style bathroom, plus a mudroom and carport. Natural light fills the cottage through large windows and sky lights, and the split-system aircon/heating and wood fired Nectre Bakers Oven provides comfort year round. Both the tram and cottage are connected to mains power, water supply is via rainwater tanks, and Internet is available via Starlink allowing you to work efficiently from home. As a bonus, the hard work has already been done to obtain an approved planning permit from the Macedon Ranges Shire Council to build a four bedroom home. The new owner can proceed with the build if they wish, and most importantly, the tram and cottage are included in the permit... no demolition required! Rounding out the rest of the acre are mature trees, various sheds and garden beds. The boundary has been planted with around 40 Feijoa trees which will form a dense and fruitful privacy hedge, along with several other recently planted fruit and nut trees. An extensive fenced veggie patch will delight the green thumbs and master chefs, with everything needed to create that special dish growing just a few steps from your front door. Native shrubs and flower beds provide habitat for wildlife and local birds, with Red-browed Finches and Superb Fairy-wrens flitting about each afternoon, and Kangaroos stopping by at Sunset. This joyful property is really one out of the box, we invite you to come and inspect it for yourself. You'll only need a one way ticket, as once you've arrived you'll never want to depart!
