An Oasis of Natural Serenity with River Frontage
Bordering the Moorabool River, this off-the-grid property presents an exclusive lifestyle opportunity on approx. 106 acres of native bushland.
You'll be amazed at the overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility, with this precious pocket of bushland attracting an abundance of native birdlife and wildlife. As you walk or bike ride along the winding trails, you can spot wallabies, koalas, echidnas and more. The tranquil river runs along approx. 1.2km of the property, where the river beaches entice you to swim or kayak along the entire length. Home to a platypus and long neck turtle, the main river beach inspires you to enjoy fun-filled family days thanks to the drinking water tap, hot shower and compost toilet. A large area that is well suited for camping is perfect for you to invite your family and friends to join you for weekend fun by the river. A walking trail runs alongside the entire river for scenic strolls, while the top of the river is the perfect place to start and finish your kayaking journey.
The charming home is perfectly positioned between secure yards, which is ideal for young families. A wood heater creates a cosy ambience in the open plan living/dining/kitchen zone, while the adjoining sitting room features a double-glazed skylight for stargazing. You'll love opening the glass bi-fold doors onto the verandah, where you can enjoy peaceful afternoons and nights. So why not cook up a storm in the outdoor kitchen as the kids play on the in-ground trampoline? Or light the firepit for a relaxed winter night? The kitchen exudes character with timber benchtops, bifold servery windows, a fridge, stainless steel cooking appliances and an integrated Miele dishwasher. Two large bedrooms feature mirrored built-in robes, while the bathroom will delight with a spa bath.
The entire property is serviced by ample rainwater tanks so you can enjoy your spa baths without concern and a 4KW solar system that is large enough to run power tools and air conditioners. However, should it be a cloudy day, the solar system is backed up by an automatic starting three-phase generator and smart system that you can start from a windows based computer. The expansive shed features an adjoining six-bay carport, while raised veggie gardens, chook shed with free range chicken run, and fruit trees provide fresh produce.
Another standout feature is the standalone bungalow which will sleep your family and friends or act as a third bedroom, serviced by a tap and basin, air conditioning and hydronic heating panel.
Other standout features include an outdoor shower attached to the house, outdoor speakers, a dam, storage sheds, a workshop and three hot water service systems. There is also a security camera system connected to the smart system.
The property has a vegetation overlay protecting the innumerable, beautiful and ancient grass trees some of which are several hundred years old. There is also a bushfire overlay for which extensive protective measures have been put in place.
The quaint township of Meredith is home to the General Store, Meredith Primary School and Meredith Golf Course. Just jump in the car, and you'll soon be exploring the region's nature reserves or cruising over the Westgate Bridge in approx. 70 minutes.
