With commanding views to Lake Colac and the Otway Ranges and overlooking one of the many crater lakes that punctuate the landscape of this region of western Victoria you’ll find this most charming of homes.
Well positioned in an established garden setting with tree lined drive on a rural allotment of 4.5 ha, (approx. 11 acres) this well-built, three bedroom brick veneer family home takes full advantage of its elevated site and panoramic views on offer.
All rooms offer lush garden vistas and none more so than the lounge with bay window and wood heater and adjoining formal dining room with its feature stained-glass window. There are three good size bedrooms, all light-filled and offering garden views through floor length, double hung cedar windows; the main with ensuite and walk-in robe, while another has built-in robes.
At its core is the well-equipped kitchen with black slate floor and timber bench tops and adjoining family meals area which opens to an undercover alfresco area overlooking the back garden and crater lake. A central family bathroom, separate WC and laundry with external access complete the home offering.
The owner’s love of gardening is evident with meandering brick-paved terraces, hedging and well-established shade trees. There’s a small orchard and with time to explore, you can walk to the base of the crater lake which has lain dormant for the past 8,000 years.
The property is zoned Farming Zone (FZ) and perfectly suited to a small grazing operation with highly productive soils, good fencing, established shelter belts and mains water, which is reticulated throughout the garden and to all stock troughs. There’s a double garage and sundry shedding which could accommodate a pony or two, plus cattle yards with loading race.
Just 12 minutes to Colac's town centre, 60 minutes to Geelong and Lorne’s spectacular surf coast and 115 minutes to Melbourne. Inspection will impress!
