Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTIES ON THE WATER -

WHEN Bob and Jean Stone were in their early 50s they spot­ted this mag­nif­i­cent el­e­vated site with sweep­ing sea and coastal views at In­ver­loch.

They bought the 1.161ha prop­erty and built their re­tire­ment home, “Bahla Bluff”, on it in 1984. The home was de­signed to cap­ture the fan­tas­tic 180 de­gree wa­ter views from Wil­sons Prom to Ea­gles Nest and over­look­ing An­der­sons In­let out to Bass Strait. The solid brick home in­cludes three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, three living ar­eas, a rooftop view­ing plat­form and a dou­ble garage.

The cou­ple cre­ated a beau­ti­ful na­tive gar­den over the years and also put in a gravel ten­nis court.

Later, an in­ground swim­ming pool was added to the prop­erty’s life­style of­fer­ings.

The ma­ture gar­den is a pri­vate haven for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors as well as a pro­tected and boun­ti­ful habi­tat for many na­tive birds. Just 5km from In­ver­loch, the prop­erty en­joys pri­vacy with­out be­ing se­cluded.

The Screw Creek na­ture walk pro­vides a lovely con­nec­tion to the town­ship.

Count­less vis­i­tors have been awe struck by the mag­nif­i­cent views en­joyed from the prop­erty, which has hosted many cel­e­bra­tions in­clud­ing wed­dings and birth­day par­ties.

“Bahla Bluff” has been the fam­ily’s gath­er­ing point for 31 years but with Jean pass­ing away re­cently Bob has re­luc­tantly de­cided to sell his piece of par­adise, list­ing it for auc­tion with his son’s real es­tate agency.
