A unique holding of approximately 40 acres at the end of a quiet country lane with direct access to the Morton National Park.
10 acres of cleared, usable land has a combination of two paddocks in pasture, an impressive olive grove, and a marvellous garden surrounding the homestead. The remainder of the property is in natural bush, bounded by two river gullies of the National Park.
The European inspired home is beautifully presented and absolutely brimming with tasteful country charm. A high vaulted entry hall with walls of bookshelves flows through to a sun drenched northerly deck and is the link between the formal lounge, master bedroom wing and the kitchen, dining and guest rooms.
The classic country kitchen features a Rayburn wood fired oven and a light filled dining area adjacent is beautifully furnished with glorious views of the bushland falling away to the east.
Beyond the kitchen a central hallway leads to three double bedrooms, one with built in robes and French doors to the deck, two additional bedrooms adjoin with one currently used as an office. The main bathroom in this wing has galvanised mini-orb lined walls, a shower over the bath, a beautiful bespoke vanity and a separate toilet in the same d├ęcor. A side hall leads to the attached double garage which houses the laundry.
The spacious formal north facing lounge has a wonderful Houlier Angeau Desquilbert antique wood-burner, double glazed windows and French doors to a lovely pergola covered courtyard.
The master suite has direct access the deck, with hand-made wardrobes either side of an elevated window seat complete with European style internal shutters. The ensuite has a toilet, vanity and unique curved glass shower.
The entire property is off the grid and a power generation system has been recently upgraded with 1.5 kilowatts of PV cells, a bank of high quality batteries and a state of the art automatic diesel generator backup. Approximately 52,000 litres of above ground tanks provides ample water storage and the sewer is an onsite septic system.
There is a four-bay high ceiling farm shed/garage and several other sheds including one for the electricity infrastructure and a very cute garden shed/studio. A huge anti-aviary houses fruit trees including old fashioned apples, figs, pears and cherries, a raised vegetable garden and Chook run. At the western end of the property is a huge dam with its own pontoon.
At the end of a delightful bush track is a stunning studio overlooking the gullies. This rustic refuge is divided into two generous rooms with loads of light opening onto n elevated deck which gives the feeling of floating above a canopy of the bushland below. There is an Ultimate 500 wood fire, a large brick open fire and electricity connected. The perfect place to retreat from the world in its own private valley amongst the Lyrebirds and rock wallabies.
Beautiful gardens surround the home with established corridors of buxus and camellia, banks spill over with perenials, pergolas are draped with wisteria and jasmine and a beautiful tree lined driveway is underplanted with a plethora of spring bulbs. Established specimen trees include Liquidambar, Silver birch and Nyssa, with several stately specimens of Paulownia providing stunning spring displays .
An idyllic private retreat with good access to the Hume highway, local southern villages and train station.
