Undoubtedly one of Bellarine Peninsula’s finest houses

This secluded and substantially proportioned estate presides over approximately 5.5 acres of provincial- style gardens and breathtaking Australian bushland featuring the Bellarine Yellow-gum, while still being close to all amenities.

Truly unique, the inviting interior features dormer windows, a striking timber staircase, polished floor boards ,slate floors and ornate high ceilings. Massive timber beams recycled from the Yarra Street Pier lend an inimitable sense of old world grandeur.
Imbued with natural light and charm, the kitchen is designed to be a practical and attractive centre of the house. Bespoke solid timber cabinetry, modern appliances and a walk-in pantry brings the best of both worlds to this exquisite space. Featuring a casual meals area with beautiful glass cabinet, it is open to the adjoining formal dining room.

A large fireplace takes centre stage in the formal sitting room, where the triple aspect saturates the room in light, looking out onto gum trees, lake and gardens.
Upstairs, the large master bedroom and guest room each contain an en suite, plus French doors onto a spacious balcony with magnificent views. A private study with solid timber shelving and built- in desk offers a peaceful place to work.
Ideal for entertaining, a separate wing contains an enormous games/family room with built-in bar, sauna and shower room, plus a brick downstairs cellar perfect for wine storage. Three more bedrooms with built-in robes and desks, a bathroom, powder room and European-style laundry are also found at this end of the residence.

Underfloor heating, a reverse cycle split system and a large wood heater provide climate control, plus there is a ducted vacuum system for the entire house. On the ground floor, six sets of French doors open to reveal the solar-heated in-ground pool, outdoor living area, and formal lawn.
Separate to the main residence, a huge bluestone barn that possesses a marked rustic beauty with an enormous loft that would make a dream office, artist’s studio, teen’s retreat or the possibility of a bed and breakfast. The dog- proof boundary fence also encompasses an orchard, a fully fenced asphalt tennis court and a lake spanned by a Monet-style bridge.
This property is close to schools, buses and shopping, the double garage has auto roller doors, workbench and internal access to the house.

Alongside a nature reserve, this stunning property is a sanctuary for humans and wildlife including echidnas, kookaburras ,tawny frogmouths, koalas, eastern rosellas, rainbow lorikeets plus a variety of finches and wrens. This oasis of serenity awaits those that seek a beautiful and tranquil retreat in close proximity to all amenities.
