Tree Change Opportunity

 

Tucked away on the lower slopes of the Jeeralangs, this unique hillside home offers the ultimate in tree change living. In a style reminiscent of an early Australian homestead, it is north-facing and filled with light all year round. Two high-set verandas are accessed from all main rooms. One has views to the Baw Baw ranges, the other overlooks the property’s productive gardens, with olives, citrus, figs, stone fruits and soft fruits and espaliered pomes.

The main living areas – formal dining room, sitting room and study, four of the bedrooms and hallway – have traditional Baltic  pine flooring throughout. The sitting room has an open fireplace with marble surround. The main bedroom has tree views from windows on three sides. Three other bedrooms presently serve other purposes, as a TV room, a sewing room, and a gym. 

The farmhouse kitchen, huge walk-in pantry, utility room and powder room, are fitted with blackwood cupboards, and have terracotta tiled floors. The fifth bedroom is small but, with toughened glass windows, wet room plaster and tiled floors already
in place, it has been prepared for a Jacuzzi and shower to be installed one day. All rooms have high ceilings with deep cornices.

The property has 2 driveways, 2 concrete 45,000 litre water tanks and 2 dams. An American-style barn (6m x 8m) complements the garage and workshop (6m x 12m). The 5-bar timber gates, internal post and rail fences, boundary fences, small cattle yard and loading ramp, are all less than five years old. With gardens laid mainly to Australian natives, the paddocks abound with wild life. They have, in recent years and at different times, also carried a few cattle, angora goats and sheep.

This is an immaculate 38 square home on 20 acres located 20 minutes from Traralgon, 10 minutes from Federation University in Churchill.
