Ultimate Sustainable Lifestyle Opportunity on the Surf Coast

This spectacular property redefines sustainable living, with breathtaking bush surroundings & treetop views that instil a close connection to nature. Enjoy the pleasures of growing your own food, harvesting seasonal organic produce from extensive veggie gardens and orchards, & reaping the rewards of the completed home and landscape renovations. A huge variety of organic fruits, vegetables & olive groves are established, an absolute dream for those interested in self-sufficient living, & endless opportunities for a hobby farmer. The tri level home cleverly links all levels via a clear line of sight from the timber kitchen, a key consideration when supervising children. All new kitchen appliances and reconfigured cabinetry make food preparation a joy, with family meals enjoyed under stunning feature lighting in the dining area. Tinted glass atrium windows reveal a garden that’s frequented by Spotted Pardalotes, Eastern Spinebills and New Holland Honeyeaters, to name a few. Freshly painted inside and out, this home has undergone an intensive five-year makeover, transforming it into a clean, functional and beautiful home. Three bedrooms (master with WIR & en-suite) bud off the versatile upper and lower living areas. The spacious north-facing lounge features a raked ceiling with high light windows, polished hardwood flooring, wood fired combustion heating, and a reverse cycle a/c. Large sun-lit spaces on the balcony or patio below beckon you to savour the magnificent, bushland views beyond the grape vine and Wisteria-entwined railings. A large glass-walled studio has the flexibility of being a pool house or retreat space, fully plumbed and powered with timber bifold doors and phantom flyscreen doors. Further enhancing the lifestyle benefits of this property is a salt-chlorinated, solar heated pool (plus a static swim trainer for lap training), that can be used 7-8 months per year, including all new filters, pumps and solar system. 6.3 acres of landscaped grounds reveal lovingly tended gardens, including fully lined, irrigated and frost-netted veggie beds, a state-of-the-art Greenhouse, designated potting benches, chicken coup, sandpit and 100,000ltrs of water storage (including firefighting capacity). An amazing vast mixed orchard of fruit and nut trees has been -planted, employing water-saving permaculture principles, plus a newly re-homed vineyard featuring Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grape vines. A new dam was also built, plus extensive plantings of coastal drought tolerant local species including 120 Manuka trees for the four beehives. Paddocks lend perfectly to horses or limited grazing with two dams and a horse stable. Machinery and vehicle storage is catered to in a large double garage, plus adjoining workshop. Additional improvements include: remote access security system, heat transfer system from the fireplace, new blinds throughout, instant gas hot water system, 3 stage water filter, integrated compost system, Venturi liquid fertiliser system, extensive soil improvement earthworks and revegetation of the entire landscape. This truly is a unique location, offering privacy and an enviable semi-rural lifestyle for your own personal paradise. Enjoy all that the Surf Coast has to offer with close proximity to Bells Beach, Point Addis and the Ironbark Basin nearby, plus easy access to Torquay, Anglesea, Geelong and Melbourne.
