Tucked into the shel­tered ru­ral land­scape, a short drive south of the Yar­ragon Vil­lage, this cap­ti­vat­ing prop­erty is the em­bod­i­ment of pri­vacy and seren­ity.

A true labour of love and the ful­fill­ment of a life­style vi­sion, num­ber 72 Yar­ragon South Road, Yar­ragon was es­tab­lished by the cur­rent own­ers to cre­ate a coun­try re­treat for their fam­ily.

The be­spoke res­i­dence sits snugly amidst five acres of glo­ri­ous land­scaped gar­dens, per­fectly po­si­tioned to cap­ture the spec­tac­u­lar views across the val­ley and beyond to the north­ern ranges.

With a fo­cus on fam­ily liv­ing, the four bed­room, two bath­room home in­cludes mul­ti­ple spa­ces for pri­vate and shared liv­ing, in­clud­ing a sep­a­rate games/ bil­liard room, with the invit­ing coun­try style kitchen form­ing the heart of the lay­out.

There is also a home of­fice, large util­ity room and a mud room.

The in­te­rior has an ‘easy to live in’ aes­thetic where warm tim­bers, nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and an abun­dance of light en­hance the ca­sual, yet stylish am­bi­ence whilst qual­ity ma­te­ri­als, func­tional plan­ning and in­no­va­tive de­sign have stood the test of time.

For out­door en­ter­tain­ing, the in-ground swim­ming pool with a ca­bana and the full size ten­nis court will keep fam­ily and friends en­ter­tained dur­ing the long, lazy sum­mer days.

The nearby semien­closed gazebo with a kitch­enette and sep­a­rate toi­let is ideal to es­cape the heat and in­sects or re­lax around the open fire on a chilly evening

Large so­cial gath­er­ings can be en­joyed through­out the gar­dens, in­clud­ing the nat­u­ral canopy of shade cre­ated be­neath a splen­did golden elm near the rear of the res­i­dence.

A show­piece in their own right, the gar­dens are a tes­ta­ment to the own­ers metic­u­lous plan­ning, ded­i­ca­tion and love of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

Man­i­cured sweep­ing lawns with ex­otic spec­i­men trees stretch out from the front of the res­i­dence and line the drive­way down to the road.

Closer to the home, lay­ered beds of colour and fra­grance are a de­light to the senses whilst veg­gie plots and an or­chard stock the home larder.

At the rear of the prop­erty, a Eu­ro­pean for­est of de­cid­u­ous trees cre­ates a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play dur­ing the au­tumn.

Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude a de­light­ful tim­ber barn com­pris­ing an open plan liv­ing area, kitch­enette and bed­room on the up­per level, a com­bined bath­room/laun­dry, large stu­dio and two stor­age rooms on the ground floor.

A solid fuel heater on the lower level, re­verse cy­cle air con­di­tion­ing on the up­per floor, a ceil­ing fan and dou­ble glazed win­dows in the stu­dio main­tain cli­mate con­trol.

There is also a three bay shed with a con­crete floor and power, large dou­ble car­port off the res­i­dence and mis­cel­la­neous sheds for wood, gar­den tools and stor­age.

Two or­na­men­tal lakes pro­vide wa­ter to the gar­den, large tanks and town wa­ter sup­ply the home.

En­try to the res­i­dence is through a stun­ning lead­light tran­som and into an im­pres­sive foyer with a che­quered mar­ble and slate tiled floor and a gor­geous Ore­gon lined curved ceil­ing.

Fur­ther along are the util­ity room, mud room, dry­ing cup­board and the sec­ond bath­room with a shower, toi­let and hand basin.

Dou­ble doors to the right of the en­trance lead to the fam­ily liv­ing room, din­ing area and kitchen.

Large win­dows, in­clud­ing a su­perb arched bay win­dow, max­imise the northerly as­pect and mar­vel­lous vista across the ru­ral land­scape.

A gas log fire, split sys­tem air con­di­tioner and a ceil­ing fan pro­vide year round com­fort.

French doors from the liv­ing area con­nect to a cov­ered pa­tio and brick ter­race with broad steps down to the lawn.

The kitchen is func­tional and well ap­pointed with all white cab­i­netry, Co­rian work sur­faces, gas hot plates, elec­tric un­der bench oven, dish­washer, glass over­heads and a walk-in pantry.

Cen­tre­piece is the com­bus­tion stove set into a brick and tile fire­place, pro­vid­ing an ad­di­tional cook­ing source, win­ter warmth and heat­ing the wa­ter.

Fur­ther along from the kitchen is the for­mal sit­ting room fea­tur­ing a solid fuel heater built into a brick fire­place with a carved man­tel and ex­ten­sive tim­ber shelv­ing along one wall.

Be­hind the fire­place is a pas­sage­way which con­nects the liv­ing ar­eas to the bed­room wing.

A wall of glaz­ing here chan­nels light into the in­te­rior and has a lovely out­look to the gar­den.

The bed­room wing in­cludes the home of­fice, four be­d­rooms, two dou­ble linen presses, a rum­pus room and the main bath­room with a stun­ning stained glass win­dow, walk-in shower, bath, large van­ity and a con­cealed cis­tern toi­let.

Two of the se­condary be­d­rooms are po­si­tioned off the rum­pus room, which can be closed off from the pas­sage­way cre­at­ing a more pri­vate space for adult chil­dren or guests.

Dou­ble glazed win­dows, a split sys­tem air con­di­tioner, ceil­ing fan and ex­ter­nal shut­ters in the rum­pus main­tain a high level of com­fort.

Built-in robes are found in three of the be­d­rooms, in­built cab­i­netry and a work desk are in­cluded in the home of­fice and rum­pus room.
