KATABANUT. A PLACE OF RARE BEAUTYCan you picture yourself waking up in a property surrounded by ancient native rainforest, tamed enough to still be paradise, then turn over and take in the ocean?
Katabanut is named after the king parrots who inhabit the surrounding trees and it provides the most perfect nest to escape to. Architecturally designed and built in the 1980s, it has been lovingly looked after by one family who have lived like custodians of the land, nurturing and caring for it at every corner.
A pretty covered deck leads to a large, sun-filled open-plan living room and kitchen with views taking in the woodland and breaking waves below. Inside are three roomy bedrooms, a bathroom, WC and laundry. This property is self-sufficient in that it captures the solar energy for power and uses water that has fallen as rain and is kept in large tanks; it is environmentally friendly living at its best.
Outside, there are 40 acres to explore bordering National Park and state owned forest. Near the house is a native plant nursery, a dam, sheds, a shade house and greenhouse, mature orchards and a vegetable garden brimming with food for the family. Private tracks around the property lead to the Great Ocean Road and Apollo Bay ten minutes away, or through pristine rainforest teaming with wildlife to the Great Ocean Walk and Shelly beach. The Great Ocean Walk is a well-regarded trail for walkers and visitors and there is scope for more businesses to make the most of this popular attraction. The proximity of this house to the walk puts it in a class of its own.
At Katabanut you can let your imagination run as wild as the sugar gliders, kookaburras, koalas and King Parrots who share this land. Make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity to live in a pocket of the Otways that sings.
