Secluded slice of Tuscany for sale in the Victorian bush at Shepherds Flat
A Tuscan-inspired regional dream home built with stone found on its sprawling property is a slice of the Mediterranean among the gum trees.
The sophisticated architect-designed pad at 10 Carrols Lane, Shepherds Flat — about a 10 minute drive from Daylesford and six minutes to Hepburn Springs village — has hit the market for the first time in more than a decade with a $1.695 million price tag.
Hocking Stuart Daylesford agent Annette Leary said all the stone used to build the striking curved home with a “large Italian-inspired terrace” came off the 44.5ha site.

“It’s next to Jim Crow Creek so you’ve got all these established lush gum trees surrounding the acreage,” she said.
“Inside you have generously proportioned rooms and the whole second level of the property is a master suite with a very large bathroom, master bedroom, walk-in robe, seated area where you can take in the views and an office.
“There’s a very large grand stone fireplace in the living room and the curved architecture when you’re in the living spaces is quite amazing, you’ve got views from every window.”
A large country-style kitchen and “enormous cellar” are on hand for long lunches and memorable occasions with family and friends on the wisteria-draped verandas.
Ms Leary said the property was private among established trees and next to the creek, with the entry over a little bridge at the end of a gravel driveway.
It was a “unique and special property” in the area and had attracted “good interest” ahead of its first open for inspection on Sunday, April 14.
CoreLogic records show it last sold for $900,000 in 2006.
