Rare Views, Position and Style.
This unique property sits at the centre of South Gippsland’s ‘Golden Triangle’ within a short drive of Fish Creek, Waratah Bay and Sandy Point beaches and iconic Wilsons Promontory.
The extremely private, award winning home was designed by renown Tasmanian Sustainable Architect - James Morrison and features stunning ocean views of Wilsons Prom’, its islands, beaches and the surrounding lush green countryside.
As you approach the property via the sweeping rustic driveway from Waratah Rd, first impressions are of expansive green gardens, large ‘Bird’ sculpture, rolling hills and big sky views across to Sandy Point and beyond.
The house nestles unobtrusively into the hillside and is totally hidden by native plantings until you step though the landscaped garden beds to the front door.
Surrounded by 4.21 hectares (approx.) of gardens and paddocks, the bespoke, cyclone rated, concrete and steel constructed house is orientated to make the most of its extraordinary position, with huge recycled timber framed doors and windows capturing the spectacular views.
The entire house was designed to facilitate the current owners love of entertaining family and friends.
2 large multi-use high ceilinged living areas can be opened up for easy summer indoor outdoor living, or fully enclosed on wild winter nights made snug, with passive solar, a French ‘Chiminees Philippe’ slow combustion fire and under floor heating.
The food lover’s galley kitchen is the beating heart of the property and with its striking feature patinated 7 metre long concrete kitchen bench and bar, Savoir Faire Stove and artisan made dark timber cabinetry make preparing quality local and home grown produce a joy.
Three distinct, zoned outdoor areas ensure the hosts can entertain all year round. From the monumental and expansive Merbau front deck with 180o views of the paddocks, dam and Prom’ which runs the full length of the house perfect for balmy weather summer parties. To the covered side deck dining area with both Prom’ and veggie garden views and the Mediterranean inspired, intimate, rear Wisteria covered pergola with its character filled handmade black river stone floor deck.
The owner’s suite and master bedroom, with its own private entry, retreat and office, sits at the far end of the house. Large picture windows, enable the lucky occupant to while away hours, lying in bed watching the ever changing light over the Prom’ or to lounge in the bath in the expansive bathroom, sipping bubbles as the sun goes down over the ocean.
Guests or family are generously accommodated in the main house by two large family bedrooms, both with beautiful views, serviced by a second bathroom and separate toilet. While a practical laundry sits in the centre of the accommodation wing.
Located away from the main house sits a stylish additional space, currently used as a studio and workspace.
Those who wish to grow their own food, will appreciate the land which is gently undulating and highly fertile with a natural spring and dam.
Plenty of room to run a few cattle or sheep or even a couple of horses.
The large fenced mature orchard contains all manner of heirloom fruit trees including peaches, plums and apples, some of which date back to the days when the property was the site of the old government school.
Conveniently located to the left of main house sits a sunny established kitchen garden with raised veggie and herb beds.
A storage shed houses mowers and tools. The property is on mains power and has approximately 90,000L of tank water.
This rare property one of a kind and is perfectly positioned just 8 minutes to Fish Creek. 8 minutes to Sandy Point beaches and only 2 hours 18 minutes to the Melbourne CBD.
