House in Kongwak, VIC
EXCLUSIVE RURAL RETREATNestled in one of the most picturesque valleys in Victoria. "Kodaikanal" is a complete opportunity to release the rigours and stresses of modern and demanding life. An opportunity to walk the paddocks and wander through the bush.
Feel yourself immediately begin to unwind as you drive across the small bridge leading to what is a very private property that put simply, is a very peaceful and beautiful place to be.
The property is approximately 106 acres in size, of which around 50 acres has been re-vegetated and covenanted with native plants, including eucalypts (47,000 plants approx).
The land is suited to gourmet farming pursuits which may include unique cattle breeds, horses, rare pigs and poultry.
A range of small farming horticultural activities could also take place depending on varieties such as a vineyard, olive grove, fruit orchard and berry orchard. A shed and carport are situated adjacent to the home and there are 3 dams, a 3 bay hayshed, stockyards and a disused dairy.
The home on the property was created as an inspirational designer masterpiece.Positioned perfectly on the side of a gentle north slope, capturing northerly views across the valley to the north, and encompassing grassy pasture, magnificent rolling hills and dramatic sky as the backdrop.
The home has been fastidiously built using a well blended and balanced mix of recycled bricks, while combining the use of beautiful modern fixtures, fittings and luxury comforts. Note the view from the master bedroom (and bath)
Furthermore, the home has a 6 star energy rating, enhanced by the use of high quality double glazed cedar framed windows. The polished concrete floors are low in allergens, easy to care for and provide excellent thermal mass.
The remainder of the property is divided into paddocks, currently leased to a local farmer, creating very little work for the current owners and a source of income.
Situated in Kongwak, in the Inverloch hinterland, the coast is around 20 scenic minutes drive away and Melbourne City is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes’ drive. A School buses runs along the Bena Kongwak road.
