This property provides buyers with great investment options – permanent home for one or two families, weekender escape with space for the kids to explore, plus a short or long-term rental opportunity for either or both properties.

Also each property has separate entrances to make for easy access.

Make the move, breathe the fresh air and leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. Barrys Reef is minutes away from Blackwood where you can enjoy the local Post Office Cafe, Blackwood Pub and Martin Street Coffee or the mineral springs and walk to the Lerderderg River. Just down the road, you will find all the amenities of Trentham with its amazing array of dining options - Red Beard Bakery, Annie Smithers’ Du Fermier, Cosmopolitan Hotel and Trentham General, Erics, Vic Market Café, Mr Peacocks and the soon to open Hotel Trentham, the monthly Farmers’ Market and vibrant array of shops and galleries. Beautiful Daylesford, Woodend and Kyneton all within easy reach.

At the height of the Victorian gold rush, Barrys Reef was home to no less than six hotels and hundreds of thirsty prospectors hoping to strike it rich. It is now a quaint little village. You might even strike gold.
