LANDMARK LOCAL RESIDENCE FOR SALE, BAW BAW MANOR
This private family retreat, surrounded by beautiful established gardens and set across a 4762m2 allotment, is the twenty-seven year old home of wellknown local, Alan Jackson.
Alan is a renowned business person; amongst other achievements, named business person of the year in both Australia and the UK and heading up BRT, one of Britain’s largest companies, during the 90s.
Alan always remained a local lad at heart and loved nothing more than coming home to family and his roots in Drouin.
He bought McNeilly’s farm in the 80s and developed Baw Baw Vista Estate and more recently Jackson’s View – a visionary project of which he was very proud.
Alan’s family are successfully continuing this development.
He also built what was to be his dream retirement home in Mahogany Court in Baw Baw Vista Estate in the early 90s.
Alan and his family visited regularly until his health declined in the mid 2000s and he was no longer able to visit his beloved ‘Baw Baw Manor’.
Alan’s private oasis will now go to the market and is scheduled for auction on Saturday 28th October 2017 at 1:00pm.
Opportunities such as this rarely come to the market.
Set on three separate titles and to be auctioned as a whole, the spacious four bedroom plus study family home is set deep in its own private gardens at the end of this sought after Drouin court.
Extensive lawns, fruit trees, hedging, mature trees and beds of daffodils in the Spring time all define this lovely garden and, of course, the Baw Baw Ranges views are striking.
From the high wrought iron gates which open to the paved driveway, you know you are in for a special treat here.
You cannot see the home itself from the street and it’s hard to believe you’re only a quick trip to the centre of town.
This craftsman built home is well designed.
The main bedroom suite has a large walk in robe and lovely ensuite plus a wellappointed home office at one end of the home.
A balanced collection of both formal and informal living spaces constitute the core of the home, and the separate bedroom wing houses three bedrooms, bathroom and laundry.
Both the generous formal lounge and dining or music room open from the main entrance and flow seamlessly through to the more casual family living zone which is open plan to the kitchen and meals areas.
Patio doors reveal a great gazebo and paved outdoor entertaining area at the rear and a north facing pergola offers further entertaining space to the front which spills into the sweeping garden – this is a superb area!
Offering contemporary appliances and a great work area for any keen cook, the kitchen is the hub of the family zone and it enjoys delightful views across the gardens and further.
Quality appointments and finishes plus ducted heating and cooling, ducted vacuum, an intercom and security system are all part of the offering.
