LAND­MARK LO­CAL RES­I­DENCE FOR SALE, BAW BAW MANOR

The Gazette Real Estate - - Front Page -

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.
