The perfect home - practically carbon neutral - exists, presenting a lovely brick veneer dwelling on estate-like grounds in Melbourne's favourite lifestyle region: the Kinglake Ranges.
Enjoying a private location within 15 minutes walking to the Kinglake township, this 2 acre property marries township accessibility with a serene sense of seclusion.
The brick veneer home is built to last, with custom Jarrah timber frame. The home is comprised of 3 bedrooms, 2 brand new renovated bathrooms with Italian porcelain tiles, kitchen/dining, formal lounge, 2 toilets, and laundry. Features include spotted gum flooring, argon filled double glazed windows, reverse cycle air conditioning, fan-forced Saxon wood heater, SMEG oven, and induction cooktop and soft closing drawers to kitchen.
The house elicits a Mediterranean feel with an ornamental vine running the length of the front verandah. The lounge also spills out onto a paved entertaining area set in a courtyard with gardens close at hand for warm summer evenings.
A 24 panel 5kw solar system eliminates the current owner's electricity bills. More than that, the current homeowners receive a 66 c rebate per kwh with a contract transferring to the new owner and lasting until 2024. This is a valuable asset for a system that generates up to 20 kwh. This provides a rare opportunity to not only save on power, but to generate a passive income.
There is a reason properties in Kinglake are so tightly held - you will not pay water rates, sewerage rates, or gas bills - and in this case, no power either. It is truly an ideal of self-sustainability. Furthermore, the property's green areas allow a budding gardener to service a high percentage of their diet with home-grown fruit and vegetables.
The fenced backyard includes fox-proof chicken run, wood shed, and 3 m x 4 m equipment shed. The property supports 100,000 L of water storage in 3 tanks, and also possesses an 8 m x 8 m remote-controlled double lockup shed that could be used as a garage or studio workshop.
The house and ancillary is cleverly setback at the end of a sweeping drive, maximising the enjoyment of the acreage. The property is well drained and slopes towards a frog pond with an entertaining deck and fern arbour surrounding. A lovingly crafted garden of extensive ornamental and fruit trees includes limes, blood oranges, nectarines, and much more.
