Tuscany at Fish Creek

Do you aspire to a Mediterranean style country lifestyle, surrounded by mature Olive Groves just minutes to some of the worlds’ best beaches?
That lifestyle is now possible right here in Fish Creek

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe this totally unique property.
It encompasses 100 acres (approx.) of some of the most productive land in South Gippsland and from its highest point, at the very top of the Hoddle Hills, some of the most spectacular views in Prom’ Country.

The property is totally private and can’t be seen from the road.
Sitting just 7 minutes from Fish Creek township the estate has its own unique micro-climate. Perfectly suited to growing almost anything, but currently producing high quality olive oil and table olives, wine (for the owners table) and organic garlic. While the surrounding hills are used to graze fat sleek cattle who drink pure spring water from the properties own natural spring which is also the source of water for Fish Creek.

Its unique nature reveals its self as soon as you turn off the bitumen and head up the long European oak lined driveway with the lush water meadows on one side towards the 2 homes nestled deep in Olive Groves and the protective surrounds of the Hoddle Range.

Pass the cluster of useful farm buildings which include a state-of-the-art modern olive processing and storage facility, through the rustic homestead gates to the productive orchard, thick with citrus, figs and gnarled olive trees with so much character they even have names.

On to the 2 homes.
The first a newly renovated two-bedroom, one bathroom cottage sited discreetly from the main house, perfect for a farm manager, granny flat, overflow accommodation or income generation as an Air BnB.

The main homestead is very understated and sits softly on the surrounding land, positioned to optimise the rural outlook across the Olive Groves and rolling hills.
Enter the light filled living/dining/kitchen area via the large front deck, positioned to capture stunning South Gippsland sunsets and rolling hill views. Passing native plantings and bird baths, busy with small birds, many rare, who live in the surrounding vegetation.

Built for relaxed living, the first impressions are of gleaming spotted gum hardwood floors, high ceilings, leafy outlooks, plus the combustion wood fire which burns wood from the property, already set in anticipation of chilly nights to come.

The kitchen is compact but functional with masses of storage, whilst a large walk-in pantry provides room to store all that home grown produce. The house is well serviced with phone and internet and a practical galley style office/library provides the perfect place for those who prefer to work from home.

The master bedroom is situated to the rear and left of the family living area, sharing the hilly outlook, it has a long walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom.

To the rear and right, sits the practical combined, wet room and laundry with direct covered access to the generous double car garage, perfect for rainy day shopping or gardening.

Turn right from the family room through to the central formal dining and lounge, with its timber floors, stone fireplace, 4-meter-high ceilings, striking views and sheltered, covered, rear barbecue and entertaining deck.

2 roomy guest or family bedrooms with built in robes and separate toilet and family style bathroom are reached from the formal areas via stylish timber stairs and the recessed TV/Rumpus room.

House and yard water are supplied by over 90K litres of rainwater tanks and the house has both solar and instantaneous hot water systems.

Outside, in addition to approx. 1000 30-year-old olive trees in three groves, there is an established productive veggie patch serviced by a garden shed and greenhouse potting shed. Comprehensive orchard with stone fruit, apples, pears, mulberries and figs and 100 grape vines for home wine making, including Nebiolo 230, Lagrein and Ameis varieties.

Victoria’s top garlic grower currently leases acreage from the farm to grow organic garlic. The lush and high carrying capacity grazing land is currently leased to a local farmer, and has had regular weed control and super programs, with main access via 2 all weather gravel laneways and good vehicular 4wd access to other areas.
Water is never an issue as a spring fed dam is used to gravity fill troughs in 9 of the 12 paddocks. The same spring water is used in the garden taps. Three dams provide water for stock in the other 3 paddocks.

The high point of the land sits next to the Hoddle Range Park and walking trail, and on a clear day offers stunning views all the way to world famous Wilsons Prom’, Corner and Shallow inlets, Waratah Bay, Sandy Point, Tarwin Lower and Inverloch. Add to that a cellar, a large modern 4 bay Colorbond shed with in-built olive processing room & bottling room – Machinery sheds and a workshop. Fully renovated stockyards, run and crush and you have a very special property indeed.

The farm is currently a permanent home, the owners grow, process and market their award winning, estate grown olives and oil and derive additional income from cattle agistment, seasonal olive processing for customers, garlic crop lease, and the B & B cottage.

The new owners could do the same or simply lease out the olive groves and olive processing facilities and enjoy the serenity of this one-of-a-kind country retreat.
