"Gwandoban" (Resting Place)
A rare opportunity has arisen to secure this 14,900 m2 (1.49Ha) Gippsland Lakes property commanding a private hilltop position. This character house, positioned in a coveted pocket at the end of a winding driveway in the heart of the Metung peninsula is set in an environment alive with native flora and fauna.
A panoramic vista of uninterrupted stunning lake and mountain views greets you as you reach the top of the driveway. Surrounding the house are lush lawns and terraces with views to the Victorian Alps to the north and across Bancroft Bay, then the Bass Strait to the east. These views can never be built out. Over the past 40 years, the owners, both past and present, have created a tranquil sanctuary and lifestyle retreat which is registered as Land for Wildlife.
The house complements its surroundings with timber-lined ceilings and has up to date conveniences of modern life such as heating and air-conditioning and up to date kitchen appliances.
The beautifully sited home is quiet and cosy with large timber picture windows, low maintenance tiled floors, a cosy wood-burner fireplace with brick surround, and an entertainers deck overlooking the lake, Bass Strait and lush tree-tops. The single-level floorplan makes this a comfortable place to call home. Each of the bedrooms has its own individual character. The master bedroom boasts an adjoining retreat which can be used as a walk-in closet or study, an ensuite bathroom and direct garden access. The other bedrooms also feature large walk-in closets.
A well-maintained garden with a mix of native vegetation and lawn areas, including a fenced and irrigated vegetable garden/orchard. Undercover drive through carport with parking for up to 4 cars or boats and a large shed (11mX5m) which offers substantial additional space complete with workshop. Additional studio/home office areas or possible extra accommodation room adjacent to the carport adds to the amenity. The property has town water and sewerage and is only 180 metres from the Metung Primary School or take a leisurely 10-minute stroll to Metung Village with its cafes and historic pub.
This peaceful retreat offers a large landholding with huge opportunities to capitalise on the house and land area STCA in this much-loved East Gippsland village with its boating and eco-tourism attractions. This allows for future expansion, or the option of subdivision upon planning permit approval.
