Something truly unique

House - Balook Vic

Adjoining Tarra-Bulga NP, Strzelecki Ranges, ‘Steeplegrove’ is a stunning property on two titles (40ha and 2ha).

Protected by conservation covenants, both titles are predominantly rainforest and wet sclerophyll forest of soaring trees, including some old growth giants. The remaining 10ha is arboretum/gardens with over 1,000 ornamental trees and rhododendrons, providing dramatic displays in spring and autumn.

Three kilometres of maintained walking trails showcase the property with its permanent creeks and abundant wildlife, including many lyrebirds.

Garden layout and covenant allow for construction of five SC holiday cabins (STCA), each within a secluded garden setting.

With the 130,000 annual visitors to Tarra-Bulga growing since opening of the 110km Grand Strzelecki walking track, this would make a great ecotourism investment.

A dwelling/ B&B could also be constructed on the 40ha title and the existing cottage on the 2ha title then used as a holiday let to supplement income. Alternatively the property would make a wonderful personal retreat.

Both titles are offered with all tools, equipment and furnishings (walk in, walk out).

The 125 sqm three BR home built in 1999 features low maintenance Hardiflex Woodgrain cladding (looks like cedar), open plan living, timber flooring, double glazed aluminium windows, full insulation, dual heating/AC, built-in robes and solar HWS. One bedroom is currently used as a study.

A steel double garage with workshop is brand new. The home has been maintained in excellent condition and overlooks its own beautiful garden and fern gully. The 40ha title includes machinery shed and tool shed.

Asking price is $770,000 complete.

Will reluctantly separate, in which case the 40ha will be offered for $455,000 and when sold the 2ha with house/garage will be offered for $355,000.
