Or if you are lucky enough to escape to the country full time...this is a beautiful place to call home!
The park like setting is incredibly private and peaceful, yet you are only a minute from the highway and less than 2 hours from Melbourne. It's just a few minutes drive to a selection of concrete boat ramps at Bonnie Doon and 10 to 15 minutes into the booming regional town of Mansfield en-route to Mt Buller.
The property slopes very gently down to Brankeet Creek and the shores of Lake Eildon, with a gate directly onto the lakefront reserve. A great feature if you love horse or motorbike riding, or even just exploring the natural environment on foot. Paradise for kids - big or small, 2 or 4 legged.
The beautifully renovated home features a flexible floorplan with 3 bedrooms and a study with 2 bathrooms, plus there's a self-contained guest suite with another bathroom. The main living area is absolutely stunning, with soaring cathedral ceilings and a feature stone fireplace. In winter the big North facing windows flood the room in natural light, with the wisteria covered pergola providing shade in summer. The open plan kitchen boasts a big Belling range with an induction cook top and a nice big pantry to store your baking supplies. You will have plenty of fresh produce from the irrigated orchard, veggie garden and greenhouse plus there's a great chook pen so you won't run out of eggs.
Back inside, there's a second living area that's the perfect spot for a TV or children's toys, although there's so much to do outdoors we think your 'screen time' will be minimal. The expansive patio between the house and the mod-grass tennis court boasts lovely views across the paddocks to the ornamental dam, complete with jetty and fountain, and the covered alfresco area on the other side of the home includes a 4 person spa. Further afield we have an incredible array of quality shedding, secure storage and workshops, in addition to the garage attached to the house. And there's still more...2 stables and 2 sealed tack/feed rooms plus a day stall and holding paddock.
Water is abundant with over 90,000 litres of rainwater storage plus the large dam and a bore supplying the automatic irrigation system. There's 3 powerful reverse cycle air-conditioners and a 3.7kW solar system to minimise the power bills.
For more details please request a copy of the vendor notes. We can also supply you with a link to take yourself on a 3D virtual tour of the home.
