Thoughts of the Dandenong Ranges induce a flood of sensory information. You visualise giant green tree ferns and low clouds rolling over blue hills. You hear the laughter of the Kookaburras and the whistle of the iconic Puffing Billy as it trundles along the track. You smell the eucalyptus and crisp fresh air. You can almost taste the food from some of the regions award winning restaurants. And you think about mid-week breaks and weekend getaways.
This is your exclusive invitation to make these sensations part of your everyday life, with enough room for the extended family.
This dual accommodation estate is situated on 1 acre of meticulously maintained gardens and lawns between Cockatoo and Gembrook, along the Puffing Billy Railway line and with easy access to the Emerald - Gembrook Walking Trail.
The cottage has its own carport which has been thoughtfully divided from the main home by screening to ensure privacy. Just a few steps along a sealed path peppered by ornamental trees and shrubs, you reach the picturesque storybook cottage with covered veranda and gorgeous dormer windows. The interior of the cottage features a large lounge and dining area with cathedral ceilings, exposed beams and a gas log fire to cosy up next to, with all the ambiance of a wood fire without the hassle. The bright, functional kitchen features dishwasher, gas cooking and electric oven, and looks out over a private garden sitting area. There is an additional undercover entertaining area where you can enjoy a meal and wine outdoors when the weather is mild. The master suite features an ensuite with large sunken spa, the ultimate in relaxation in those cooler months. Upstairs are the two loft bedrooms, big enough to fit a double and a single bed, meaning the entire family can enjoy their own space. The cottage also features ducted heating and air conditioning for year round comfort.
The main home is a quality built solid brick home with a double carport at the entrance for convenience. The entry door is an oversized wood feature which produces an exciting impression of what lies behind it. Beautiful exposed brick walls and high cathedral ceilings with exposed beams and skylights provide a striking and light filled environment, consistent throughout the home. Immediately past the foyer is the large master suite with sitting room and ensuite with large spa, and a personal entrance through double sliding doors by a private courtyard. The windows here provide a unique aspect over the Puffing Billy Railway line.
Further into the home, off the wide hallway are 3 robed bedrooms serviced by a spacious bathroom. The hallway opens into the main living zone with dining area and commodious lounge with wood heater and windows that look out over the gardens and doors that provide access to the stunning inground pool, nestled aesthetically between the ferns.
Beyond, the main living zone features a well-appointed kitchen with double oven, cooktop and warming drawers and an informal dining area for serving up a quick bite. The laundry is also located here, in addition to the office or 5th bedroom.
Outside, there are undercover verandas on both sides of the home joined by a path that meanders easily through the gardens, designed to make the most of the natural surroundings and wildlife, while providing picturesque seating areas and maintaining privacy.
There is additional shedding with concrete floor and power and 2 garden sheds to house all the tools.
This property is currently known as The Whistle Stopover Bed and Breakfast, successfully trading in the region for many years due to its reputation for outstanding hospitality, pristine accommodations, and tranquil setting. It therefore provides a luxurious opportunity for 2 families to reside and contribute financially, or continue the Bed & Breakfast legacy.
This estate is nestled along the Puffing Billy Railway Line between the Gembrook and Cockatoo townships and is close to shops, public transport and the popular Emerald-Gembrook Walking Trail. It provides many possibilities for the discerning buyer so a viewing is essential.
