Sustainable Living in the Heart of Castlemaine


Discover the essence of sustainable living in the heart of Castlemaine with this exceptional house and land package. Lot 5, 80 Farnsworth St Castlemaine is part of our exclusive, environmentally sustainable ten lot subdivision.

Designed by award-winning local builders, Lot 5 offers a modern split-level three-bedroom haven, crafted for high-quality, eco-conscious living.

As you step into the home, an entrance featuring the natural textures of Rammed Earth walls welcomes you. The open-plan kitchen and dining area features a walk-in pantry with ample shelving and benchtop workspace, spacious kitchen benches and a study nook. Continuing down three Vic Ash stairs to a sunken living room, a quiet retreat with expansive windows offers views to a generous undercover northern alfresco entertaining area.

The primary suite is a sanctuary in itself, boasting a walk-in robe, ensuite with a large shower, vanity, and toilet, and direct access to a private north-facing courtyard. Stepping down to the southern side of the home, two additional spacious bedrooms with built in robes, a separate laundry, and main bathroom with a shower, bath and separate toilet complete this thoughtful design.

Eco Sustainable Homes Testimonials

We were so impressed by the kindness, professionalism, trustworthiness and transparency Lyn, Tony and the whole Eco Sustainable team employed during the design, build and post-move in. We have lived in our home for 9 months now and absolutely love what they have created for us. Our home is incredibly beautiful, comfortable, efficient, and built to last. We could not recommend Eco Sustainable Homes more highly.

Heather"Comfortable, efficient, and built to last"

Living in our new home is a joy. The workmanship is excellent, the solar passive performance outstanding and the unique design ‘fits’ perfectly in our environment and with our lifestyle. We thank Eco Sustainable Homes for their patience, professionalism, dedication and warmth, and would highly recommend them.

Chek"Patience, professionalism, dedication and warmth"

Our new home that Eco Sustainable Homes designed and built for us is as close as I can imagine to be perfect for us. Lyn & Tony did a magnificent job of not only designing a house to suit all our wants and desires, including being solar passive, but within budget and timeframe. We have a very high quality home that we love.

Graeme"Solar passive, within budget and timeframe"

We relied heavily on Tony and Lyn’s skills and decision-making when we worked interstate (unexpectedly) for most of the build. They were again totally reliable and honest in every aspect and kept in contact with us constantly. I would never have considered such a drastic step with another unknown company but was very confident in dealing with Eco Sustainable Homes.
We’ve lived in our new home for two years. It has fulfilled all our expectations and we love it dearly.

Bron"Reliable and honest in every aspect"
