Once in a while a prop­erty comes onto the mar­ket which is truly unique, a coun­try re­treat to en­joy a quiet life­style of pri­vacy and peace.

This 16 acre hold­ing, nes­tled amongst the rolling coun­try­side of Ton­im­buk and the mag­nif­i­cent Bun­yip State For­est, is one such of­fer­ing. The prop­erty is lo­cated on a sealed road ap­prox­i­mately five min­utes from the free­way and 50 min­utes from Mel­bourne. Ton­im­buk Eques­trian Cen­tre is just down the road and the Pak­en­ham Racing Club is a 20 minute drive. Ideal for the equine en­thu­si­ast, im­prove­ments in­clude a block of four sta­bles, tie-up rails, tack/feed room, sand based rid­ing arena, 24m x 8m pow­ered shed/work­shop with a con­crete floor and built-in work­bench, a load­ing race and hold­ing yards. Level to gen­tly un­du­lat­ing, the shel­tered acreage is di­vided into 6 pad­docks with post and rail fenc­ing plus hot wire, ac­cessed by an au­to­matic key pad en­try gate. How­ever, it is the res­i­dence that in­spires the imag­i­na­tion and sets this prop­erty apart. The two level home has been con­structed from re­cy­cled bricks, sourced from an his­toric Mel­bourne res­i­dence, giv­ing the ex­te­rior a time worn ap­pear­ance and old world charm. Re­claimed ma­te­ri­als also fea­ture in the in­te­rior with tim­bers from the orig­i­nal Neerim East hall, a sal­vaged stair­case, doors and dec­o­ra­tive shelv­ing. A fas­ci­nat­ing piece of his­tory is the boiler from an old pad­dle steamer dis­cov­ered in a dry river bed at Echuca, clev­erly con­verted to an out­door heater in the al­fresco.

All th­ese eclec­tic el­e­ments have been seam­lessly fused with mod­ern ameni­ties and com­forts, in­clud­ing split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ing on both lev­els, to cre­ate a stylish and wel­com­ing home. Flex­i­ble and spa­cious, the lay­out high­lights three bed­rooms, the main bed­room with a walk-in robe, en­suite, sit­ting area and a large mul­ti­pur­pose room on the sec­ond level, a gen­uine coun­try style kitchen/diner, liv­ing room, sep­a­rate for­mal din­ing room and a large home of­fice or fourth bed­room. A broad en­try hall fea­tures high ceil­ings, wide skirt­ing boards and warm, pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing. Di­rectly ahead the din­ing room with bi­fold doors con­nect­ing to the home of­fice cre­at­ing one large liv­ing space when all the friends and fam­ily come to visit.

To the left of the hall an in­trigu­ing tim­ber door re­veals the liv­ing room where a brick fea­ture wall ac­com­mo­dates a solid fuel heater. Be­hind the brick­work is the kitchen, an invit­ing work space with shaker style cab­i­netry, tim­ber lined ceil­ing and an im­pres­sive Smeg cooker set into the brick fire­place. A dish­washer and a walk-in pantry, util­is­ing the un­der stair space, are fur­ther fea­tures. Tall French doors from the kitchen, liv­ing room, din­ing room and the home of­fice al­low ac­cess to the veran­dah which wraps around to the cov­ered al­fresco. Re­turn­ing to the en­try hall, a broad cor­ri­dor leads right to the two sec­ondary bed­rooms, both with a walk-in robe, fam­ily bath­room, pow­der room and the laun­dry. Pri­vate and boast­ing splen­did views across to the state for­est, the main bed­room is a

is peace­ful respite from the lower level.

French doors open to a bal­cony, the per­fect spot to re­lax and en­joy the pic­turesque vista. The mul­ti­pur­pose room with its an­gled ceil­ing and ex­posed beams would be ideal as a stu­dio, nurs­ery or home gym. Well es­tab­lished, the sur­round­ing gar­dens in­clude weep­ing spec­i­men trees, lovely shade trees, an ar­ray of fruit trees and raised veg­gie boxes.

There is also a hen house, wood shed and a quaint trac­tor shed. Wa­ter for stock sourced from a spring fed dam which sup­plies the pad­dock troughs. This is in­deed a once in a life­time op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire a unique prop­erty, full of his­toric el­e­ments and char­ac­ter, yet of­fer­ing all the mod­ern com­forts and con­ve­niences for to­day’s life­style.
