This property is deliciously different to say the least and diverse in its investment potential. Approx. 45 mins from the CBD, it may be used as a weekender, to offer Air B&B or to live in as your own private retreat. Known as a site of botanical significance featuring a sanctuary of Australian bushland and wildlife, this property offers an intrigue and serenity like no other.
Situated on over 3 acres of land as surveyed but more like 5-6 acres by foot, this spectacular property offers life-style, comfort, privacy and the most incredible expansive views toward Menzies Creek ranges and Cardinia Reservoir. The property features a 3 bedroom residence nestled amongst the natural surroundings; a separate studio styled with sophistication; a sizeable garden workshop/shed; a separate bar styled wine cellar with custom made wine racks and to complete it all, an adjoining large home office space.
The flora and fauna are plentiful with resident wallabies, kookaburras, tawny frog mouths, amazing butterflies, abundant birds, bandicoots, echidnas and native orchids. The fern forest and creek frontage are accessed by a meandering bush path that is fondly referred to as the Temple Road 1000 Steps. At the top of the property is a beautifully decked boardwalk with numerous discrete spaces to soak in the surrounds and views of natural granite and includes a rotunda with lavish day beds; a firepit area to share stories and music and a very exciting rock climbing/abseiling wall that is simply magnificent and celebrates the allure of adventure that the property exudes. The home reminds me of a chalet perfectly placed to absorb every change of scenery from dawn to dusk and is enhanced by beautiful windows and an impressive decking with shade sails perfect to entertain and show off your own scenic mastery.
The property has dual road frontage at Temple Rd and Bolton Rd and the driveway to the home is circular with two entrances and abundant car parking. The property attracts significant annual funding grants for bushland maintenance, collects its own water and has an environmentally friendly sewerage treatment plant with pumped irrigation to the garden, to once again enhance the sustainable living plan.
The home features open plan living, a coonara style wood fire plus ducted heating and a split system for cooling; a rustic modern bathroom with dual shower and spacious kitchen to prepare the food and entertain in droves. At the front of the property there is an undercover alfresco area that allows you to sit and ponder the magnificent and extensive landscaping that brings this property to another level. The property is located minutes to Belgrave train and main street cafes and shopping precinct and approximately 900m to Belgrave South.
