This exceptional bayside sanctuary has a magical quality that’s good for the soul. Boasting approx. 75 secluded and fertile acres, a breathtaking Swan Bay panorama and a stunning family home, this is an ideal lifestyle choice for those wanting to escape the urban jungle.
The views are an intoxicating backdrop to a privileged coastal-rural life. The panorama across Port Phillip and Swan Bays extends from Mount Martha to Queenscliff. Established shelter belts frame the view whilst ancient gum sculptures create foreground focal points and a niche for wildlife.
Timeless architecture and interiors disguise the age of the 2-storey family home. The contemporary open feel comes from the clever use of light and space combined with a natural colour scheme and hardwood features. The architecture extracts the best from the breathtaking outlook, framing serene water views in every room.
On ground level, a south facing glass atrium captures the full height of the southern panorama including the mountain backdrop, vivid sky scape and fertile paddocks in front. North and south facing glazing allows vision through the home from the protected north to the picturesque south. Passive solar gain benefits the north facing living zones in winter, and the shady northern pergola guards against the high summer sun.
The central kitchen is the hub of the home and flows seamlessly to formal dining, with wood burner, on to a grand living space with open fire and charming vaulted ceiling. Multiple accesses to outdoor entertaining areas encourage desirable indoor-outdoor living and refreshing cross ventilation.
Appliances include a 750mm Ilve cooker and new F&P dishwasher. Chefs will love the walk-in larder stocked with organic produce from the garden.
Two bedrooms with robes, a bathroom, attic bedroom and cellar bud off a wide sundrenched hallway in the eastern wing. This wing terminates in a lounge/office with 5th bedroom, giving the design great flexibility when hosting.
Upstairs the scenic master retreat revels in the uninterrupted views. A huge picture window on the landing creates ‘theatre’ of the panorama and provides an ideal spot to watch the abundant birdlife. Self-contained and private, the master bedroom boasts walk-in robe and fresh en suite.
An organic philosophy has directed land management for the past 30 years. This ethos respects the values of the neighbouring Swan Bay Marine Park and RAMSAR protected wetlands and provides safe haven for native fauna. Birdlife is particularly prevalent boasting many migratory species and the endangered White Bellied Sea Eagle.
The land is securely fenced into 7 paddocks suitable for a range of grazing and cropping pursuits. A cattle breeding enterprise and rose growing business have succeeded on the fertile sandy loam and black volcanic soils. Town water and dams drought proof the property and 40,000L rain water tanks supply the home. The extensive vegetable gardens and orchard allow a high-level of organic self-sufficiency.
30 minutes to Geelong, 90 minutes to Melbourne and close to quality schools.
This property offers a captivating location and a lifestyle that’s hard to beat! View without delay!
