Off the grid and off the beaten track
IN the spectacular Victorian Alpine country, with frontage to the Ovens River, is this environmental gem.
The 70.1ha property has a handcrafted homestead — made from strawbale, mudbrick and recycled timber — a springwater supply and alluvial soils.
The house uses passive solar design and is ‘‘off the grid’’, with a hydro turbine and solar panel system.
Inside, there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a recycled redgum kitchen and open-plan living with cathedral ceilings and a wood fire.
There is also an additional cottage and an in-ground pool.
Tumblegum is at 1763 Great Alpine Rd, Smoko. An auction will be held on the property on Saturday, April 6. Details: PRH Real Estate, Matt Childs 0418 512 494 or go to prh.com.au
