11 Tunnel Creek Road,
The Hill StationA remarkable property that captures your senses on every level. The entrance meanders arriving at the homestead which has the signature of the architect, Jamie Learmonth. The house sits in a whimsical garden setting which has evolved over time from when it was first settled in the 1930's.
This iconic property is located on the lower slopes of the Macedon Ranges, approximately 750 metres above sea level. The garden blends intimate garden rooms, open parklands with a feature being the grid of stunning Liquid Amber trees along with established mature plantings including Silver Birch, Maples and Ash. The easy to maintain garden boasts seasonal colour of bulbs and azalea.
The home offers flexible accommodation of 4 bedrooms, study and a self-contained studio, which is great for friends to stay or for B&B potential (STCA). The heart of the home is the large living room, where you can only imagine the great times had around the open fire place. Additional background warmth is provided by hydronic heating. The main bedroom is linked to the house via a sun drenched conservatory.
There is approximately 10 acres of cleared land around the home and the balance of 56 acres is pristine native habitat, ideal for horse riding or exploring on foot. There is a winter creek which flows amongst tree ferns and Rhododendrons. Fantastic infrastructure includes a machinery shed and the original 1930's timber cutters cottage. Further attention to this separate dwelling provides further options. An abundance of water serviced by a productive bore and rainwater is stored in four 50,000 litre tanks.
This iconic property is located on the Melbourne side of the Macedon Ranges in the historic hamlet of Cherokee. Only 50 minutes from Melbourne CBD and even less to the international airport.
