How often have you wanted to find a lifestyle property that all the family can comfortably enjoy, where you can work from home, and take advantage of the best the hills have to offer, right on your doorstep?
Stop your search, this home is exactly that and more!
Located in quiet Moola Road, this 2.5 acre home is literally on the fringe of Wrights Forest where you can wake to the serene sounds of the birds and enjoy watching the wildlife right on your doorstep. This home is located along the Eastern Dandenong Ranges Trail with picturesque trestle bridges, bike riding and walking tracks leading to Clematis, Emerald, Cockatoo and Gembrook where the iconic Puffing Billy can be seen and heard as it winds its way through the landscape.
This homestead style, mudbrick home has a rich history with exposed timber columns supports that have been recycled from the Echuca wharf in the 1980s after spending a century in the waters of the mighty Murray River. The mud bricks themselves were crafted onsite from Cockatoo clays and locally sourced straw, these unique features giving this property an eco friendliness complementary to its environmental location.
This gorgeous home offers a world of possibility with its superior floorplan that provides the option of 2 separate homes under the one roof with their own entrances, or a large home that can accommodate the entire family.
The first or formal entrance welcomes you into a huge living area with wood heater, exposed mud brick walls and cathedral ceilings with clerestory windows for excellent natural light, plus a large formal dining area. 2 good sized bedrooms, one with an ensuite, are located at the end of the short hallway in addition to the main bathroom and laundry.
The heart of the home is the large kitchen with bay windows, gorgeous thick timber bench tops and white cabinetry with servery windows on either side that can be closed or opened, depending on your requirements. Immediately behind is the huge mudroom with access to the rear entertaining area with shade sails so you can enjoy the natural aspect year round.
The other side of the home almost mirrors the first, with a huge rumpus room, secondary laundry, 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom with huge ensuite and walk in robe.
This offers a great opportunity for independent living for aging parents or growing teenagers where you close off both sides so everyone has their privacy and you can still meet in the middle to break bread.
Each side having its own access, and the idyllic forest location, there is also an opportunity to utilise as a B&B where you can live on one side while deriving an income from the second, without ever having to leave!
The home also features a large 3 car lock up garage, cubby house, a horse stable and woodshed, plus solar hot water.
This home has enormous potential and is in such a great location; once you visit you will be able to see the lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of!
