If you love the tranquillity of walking or riding alone through the Otway forest, then imagine being able to do that anytime you wish and on your own land. This sweeping 200 acre property (172 freehold and approx 30 acre Crown Lease) has abundant areas of pristine Otway forest vegetation including enormous mountain ash, native gum & beautiful tree ferns. Three creeks including Skene's Creek & Irvine's Creek flow through the property all year round with delightful cascades and waterfalls (one is 13m high) providing perfect picnic settings.
At your own pace you can stroll and listen to the many bird calls, see parrots and kookaburras, take adventure walks along some of the more challenging gullies to discover your own waterfalls or go horse riding or motor biking over the grassy fields and through the bush.
At the end of your wonderful day you can retire to the cosy cottage and relax on the south facing verandah to watch the sunset and enjoy the views over the luxuriant green landscape to Bass Strait. After watching a magical sunset, the light from the King Island lighthouse is visible and starry night skies are astounding. Bring your telescope!
The current owners have made many improvements to the property over the last ten years and have raised and fattened cattle on the lush, abundant pastureland. Most paddocks have electrified fencing and it is possible to graze over 100 cattle over the summer months to gain income from grazing on this DROUGHT RESISTANT PROPERTY! Rainfall is extremely high in this area.
With this private bushland retreat you can either live in the existing cottage or build your own dream home. Or if you have entrepreneurial vision, this is a fabulous opportunity to tap into the ever increasing number of visitors to the Great Ocean Road, Twelve Apostles and Otway Forest. The property has potential as an Eco tourist/farm stay/health/Yurt Glamping resort, or as an accommodation/conference/wedding centre. (STCA)
