Magnificent, elevated 11ha (27 acre) property, on the Melbourne side of Apollo Bay, with two beautiful houses in excellent condition, both with unmatched, panoramic, sea and land scape views and both with excellent access.
The property boasts a mixture of rainforest (complete with private waterfall) and designed pasture to promote and protect these majestic hilltop views and protect and seclude the two houses from each other.
The property is 10 minutes from Apollo Bay, an hour and a quarter from Geelong and two and a half hours from Melbourne.

House one is a multi-levelled and architect designed, Western Red Cedar, weatherboard home with commanding views from every room; down a dramatic valley, out to sea and over to Apollo Bay.
Large windows and the substantial deck are designed to capture those views to the full and to provide a light filled house. A sunny, north facing and sheltered courtyard fully utilizes the other side of the house. Beautiful, established and flower-filled garden and pathways surround the house, enhancing the views. On clear nights, these views take you all the way to the Cape Wickham light house on King Island, if you can caste your eyes down from the endless starlight sky.
This house features:
• A generous L shaped, open-planned lounge and a split level to the kitchen and welcome area.
• 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, (one incorporating a glass atrium, garden shower), laundry, plentiful cupboards, a large deck, covered porch area and patio.
• Heating & cooling via split system air conditioner, ceiling fans, plus a large open-fireplace.
• 5kw solar panel system means little or no electricity bills!

House two is traditional Californian bungalow styled with a modern, open-planned, split level kitchen and living area at the rear of the house. This opens out onto rich sea and hillside views and directly overlooks Apollo Bay. The living areas are open, light-filled and sunny. All the old features of the Californian Bungalow contrast pleasingly with the modern, open feel of the kitchen/lounge/bathroom areas.
The predominantly native garden provides colour, shelter and privacy. Birds particularly love this garden as it provides abundance of protection and food.
This house features:
• 3 bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, bathroom, separate toilet, laundry, large sun-drenched deck, L shaped verandah and plentiful cupboards.
• Slow combustion heater, split system air-conditioning, ceiling fan, natural sun warming and excellent flow-through ventilation provide all the heating and cooling necessary.
• Another 5kw solar system takes care of most of your electricity needs.
• Bathroom with double shower and heating. Separate toilet.
• Ample storage & cupboard space..
• A 2.5 x 6m storage/work area/garden shed with roller door, attached to a generous carport.

Other features on the property include:
• A substantial and beautiful, secluded and private water fall with formed tracks and steps.
• A large, 8 x 16m concrete floored workshop (with office) provides all the workspace and storage necessary.
• Extensively landscaped with established gardens.
• Varied walking tracks throughout the property.
• 125,000 litres freshwater tank water storage
• Perennial stream running through the property
