A Secluded Bushland Paradise

A home among the Gum trees, immersed deep in nature, this single-level four bedroom log cabin with a separate studio is rich with character and secluded on 57 acres (approx.) in one of the Hinterlands most beautiful natural settings.

The battle axe block affords a level of privacy that is hard to come by with the land composed of natural forest and cleared usable grazing areas for livestock, dams in each paddock, cattle yards, plus a five-bay machinery shed and additional two-bay hay shed with storage. The north-facing fenced house block takes in 360 degree views across the landscape with a north-south tennis court and separate studio perfect for the resident artist, yoga enthusiast or visiting guests.

With an authentic log cabin ambience reminiscent of a lodge in the wilderness, the interiors are composed of natural materials and vaulted timber ceilings and provides the ideal retreat for those wanting a weekend escape from hectic city life or as a permanent residence where you can raise a family in nature, curl up beside a roaring fireplace, set the kids free in their own bushland paradise or entertain guests in complete privacy.

Two large welcoming living zones extend to the surrounding wrap-around verandah, each with its own wood combustion fireplace- one wrapped in floor-to-ceiling stone. An off-peak heat bank is available if further heating is required while the kitchen is efficient and functional. The four bedrooms with built in robes are generous in size and are catered to with two zoned bathrooms, two separate toilets, two separate showers plus a bath, all serviced by gas hot water. Comfortable and cosy, the home presents the opportunity to tailor the interiors with fresh cosmetic updates if desired.

With a trust for nature covenant, wildlife and native birds are in abundance, drawn by two creeks flowing through the property, adding its special nature; while the potential to further extend the agricultural uses and potential of the property are unlimited.

A rare opening into Merricks North, this captivating property resides within a five-minute drive of Balnarring Shopping Village, Le Bouchon restaurant, Port Phillip Estate, The Merricks General Store and Polpero Winery and a further five minutes to beaches including Point Leo surf beach and secluded Merricks beach. Red Hill’s Epicurean and village, a choice of schools, golf courses, farm gates and Peninsula Link are all easily accessible from this convenient yet completely hidden hinterland location.
