Indulge your dream of owning a thriving B&B in the hills, the reassurance and convenience of a perfect multigeneration design, join forces and move in with mates or live in one cottage and still provide yourself with rental income with this incredibly exciting dual dwelling set-up just footsteps from the village. Two beautifully renovated cottages with yesteryear allure are on offer on a 1000m2 forest-framed allotment with plenty of off-street parking (not that you’ll need your car) for those who can see the considerable scope and potential this rare opportunity delivers. Coffee at Olinda Café, a stroll browsing the boutique shops in the village, lunch at Ranges and an afternoon meander in The Dandenong Ranges Botanical Gardens before heading to dinner across the road at The Forest Lounge. This is the lifestyle up for grabs for you or your paying guests. Alternatively, buy a vintage brew from Olinda Cellars and enjoy it in front of one of two ambient fires, whilst swaying on the swing deck or simply enjoying the quietude of your private garden sanctuary as the mist rolls in from the valley. Families too will love the easy stroll to the local primary school, the playscape and the off-leash dog park and don’t forget to stop at the sweet shop on the way home.

Front Cottage

A home that blends vintage character with modern flair, this inspiring residence is deceptively spacious and would easily accommodate a young family. Three bedrooms are serviced by a lavishly sized spa bathroom whilst the master bedroom features a sparkling ensuite. A contemporary kitchen unfolds to a skylit meals zone before stepping down to a living area warmed by a crackling wood fire. Take the party outside to a freshly stained alfresco deck with bench seating where you can entertain or enjoy the solitude against a forest backdrop. Also features large laundry with attached storage room, ducted heating, floorboards underfoot, double blinds and parking bay.

Rear Cottage

Flowing over two cosy levels, the upper floor showcases open plan living with an alluring gas log fire for winter warmth and an updated kitchen with island breakfast bench that spills out to a sunset balcony for balmy afternoons with a book or a brew. The queen bedroom with dreamy forest views connects to the two-way bathroom and nursery/home office/second bedroom. A third bedroom is found on the ground floor with adjacent living area with its own French door entrance to the driveway ideal for a home business. Glorious gardens frame the home highlighted by a floating swing deck for unwinding as you take in the verdant outlook and sounds of nature and a firepit zone for telling stories under starry skies. Also features carport with Euro laundry, double glazed windows, split system and fresh carpet.

Insider’s Secret: Well placed to embrace the close knit community and friendly neighbours, the location also delivers an endless number of enchanting forest hikes and close proximity to the charming villages of Sassafras, Mount Dandenong, and Kallista.
