We have a large mudbrick home which we built ourselves. It is on a heavily forested block with large garden and fruit trees. We are regularly visited by koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas. We also have a great collection of native bird life permanently on the property - and we only need to take a 5 kilometre trip in the evening to find a wombat. We are 4k from Woodend Village and a train from there has you in Melbourne in 60 minutes.
We are retired teachers/academics who still lead a very active life.
Our project at the moment is building rock walls at the studio we have just finished on another property. The property is 30 kilometres from home and includes a little wine shop, pizza cafe and Art studio. We also need to do some basic landscaping. It's pretty simple work though - as long as you don't mind a bit of dirt on your hands.
You would have a queen size bedroom with garden outlook. You would also have almost exclusive use of the bathroom and shower room because we have our own ensuite upstairs.
We sometimes have a grandchild over to stay, otherwise it's just the two of us.
We have travelled extensively in Europe and have a very basic grasp of French.
Interests; Art, Craft, Theatre, Boating, Fishing, Building.
