Completely unexpected, this home stands among olive groves, with 1700 mature trees, as though in Italy.
Here, is an amazing lifestyle opportunity offering a substantial home with purpose-built, guest accommodation in a rural setting.
The reality is Redbank, once a gold mining town now recognised for its vineyards and olives and home to this 37square, double-storey house (built 2003) which occupies an elevated site and offers a multitude of features.
Closely planted around the house are mature fruit trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers. The olive groves cast long shadows and a walk to the lake (licensed 30meg dam) is a delight. There is a second dam (12meg) and there are 3 tanks with a total capacity of 90,000 litres - the property is irrigated - and there is an assortment of shedding for equipment and cars. Redbank Olives produces table olives and extra vrigin olive oil. Varieties include Arbequina, Correggiola, Frantoio, Kalamata, Koroneiki, Leccino, Manzanillo, Sevillano and Verdale.
Constructed with over-size brick, all windows are double glazed and there are polished Jarrah floors throughout. Downstairs: the main bedroom has a walk-in robe and large, semi-ensuite bathroom plus powder room; large laundry/preparation room with outside access. The outstanding living area has 4 components - kitchen with new SMEG oven, dining area and two sitting areas (both with wood-fire heaters). This area is spacious but also completely warm and inviting, and is adjacent to a library/music room. Outside is a timber deck which offers wonderful, far-reaching views. Upstairs: 4 double bedrooms (all BIR) 2nd tiled bathrooom plus powder room and a living/games room with kitchen facility. All the bedrooms have direct access to balcony-decking and stairs.
With the vendors' background of 38 years in Falls Creek, this house has been built to offer home comforts plus amenities tailor-made for B&B accommodation. In addition, the views, walking trails (kangaroos and native birds) and the lake are the aesthetics and also the activities. Enjoyment would include shared meals at the dining table, great coffee in the little library or the balcony; a brush of rosemary as you enter the garden gate and the quiet.
Located 13 minutes, 19.5km from Avoca via the Sunraysia Highway, B220 Floor plans available.
