The essence of country living
If you are in the market for a country retreat – the perfect place to escape urban stress, unwind and enjoy the simple joys of rural living, then read on.
Skylark Hill is a picturesque 89 acre property located at Heath Hill, one of West Gippsland’s premium locations with fertile red and grey soils, high rainfall and the most stunning views.

The acreage is accessed by a central laneway, well fenced and with excellent sheloffice ter for stock and native wildlife. A number of dams and natural springs provide an abundance of water which is pumped to troughs throughout the property, whilst tanks supply the home.
Far reaching views sweep across the rural landscape and further enhance this idyllic holding. Nestled amidst an established garden of native and deciduous trees, the residence is private and tranquil. Multiple sets of sliding glass doors throughout the home allow access to the garden to enjoy a meal under the trees on a warm day or a quiet place for reflection. A double carport provides covered entry, past the laundry, main bathroom and into the kitchen and family living area. Extensive windows across the south east aspect maximise the superb vista whilst time worn floorboards give a relaxed ambience to this much utilised space. Functional and well equipped, the kitchen features a Glem 900mm cooker with rangehood, dishwasher and ample storage including a double pantry.
Steps up from the kitchen connect to a second living area, a lovely room with high ceilings and a peaceful garden outlook.

Highlight of the home is the main bedroom, a spacious retreat with wrap around glazing, a walk-in robe/dressing room and a lavish ensuite with crafted timber cabinetry, oversized shower, oval bath and a toilet.
Here you can enjoy the change of seasons, colourful birdlife and the restful setting without leaving your bed, the outlook simply serene.
