Hazewind, High Country, North Eastern Victoria.
Perched on the edge of an escarpment, overlooking the 126 acre property, and located at the end of a quiet country road, this truly is a retreat from the world. Two hours from Melbourne in Victoria"s high country, close to two major towns, the ski fields and Lake Eildon, there"s always something to do - if you really must, or you can just enjoy this stunning and ever-changing view.
The property is situated at the end of a quiet country road and entered via a long, tree-lined driveway. The house was built and developed by the present owners to reflect their love of nature and bushwalking and the need for respite after a busy business week in Melbourne. The house was built on a ridge 700 metres above sea level overlooking a beautiful valley with spectacular views to the Strathbogie Ranges.
The property is 50 hectares (126 acres) of mostly native bush with six acres of cleared land on which the house is situated, with a winter stream at the bottom of the property. A feature of the property is the bird life which is prolific and drawn to the native bush plantings and the peace and quiet, from the tiny wrens to the magnificent Wedgetail Eagles that soar on the thermals so close to the front of the house, you can hear the wind rushing through their feathers.
The house has grand cathedral ceilings of elaborate steel construction with an open plan main area of over 100 square metres, finished with slate flooring and heated by a large wood heater and a gas heater. There is also a large ceiling fan. The country style kitchen with walk in pantry allows the cook to chat with family and friends while the meal is being prepared. There is also a mezzanine floor which is very popular with young children, but it could also be used as an office for those lucky work at homers.
All three bedrooms and the study open onto the wide ornamental steel verandah to taker advantage of the spectacular 240 degree views. The main bedroom wing has a huge bedroom, walk in robe and ensuite and there is also a sitting room/study off the central living area. The guest wing has two bedrooms which also open onto the verandah, and there is a bathroom and toilet serving this wing as well.
There are extensive outbuildings including a 94 square metre lock up workshop / shed, an ornamental car port reminiscent of the style of an old Victorian railway station, large enough to fit at least three cars. There is a fully enclosed vegetable garden, a fernery and a large enclosed wood shed. There are 120,000 litres of tank water available.
The aforesaid work-from-homers will find that internet connections are good and the environment inspiring. With features too numerous to mention, this spectacular house and property needs to be viewed to be appreciated.
