About our home

Our home situated in a warm temperate climate zone, is located on 30 acres of land that has the same classification as National Park.
It is located in the Strzelecki Ranges in Gippsland, in a large landscaped, prize winning garden of approximately two acres.
There is reverse cycle air conditioning as well as an unlimited supply of wood for two wood heaters if you want the comfort of a cosy fire.
There are 3 bedrooms plus a study/bedroom, a large family/dining room and kitchen with all modern conveniences adjacent. There is a lounge room with a music room and piano. We have solar electricity to supplement the mains supply and a solar hot water service. A sun room on the west end of the house, and a verandah on the east end with a dining table and 6 chairs, swing couch and day bed are very pleasant places to laze away the days if you so wish. We dine most of the year outside on the veranda as it is a great place to observe our many beautiful native birds.

The water supply is filtered rain water and is very plentiful. There are 2 large TV's and iMac computer with large download plus telephone.

The native wildlife visits us regularly and it is not unusual to have koalas grunting outside the bedroom window at night.
Our kangaroos regularly feed on our lawns in the evening, along with wallabies and the occasional wombat and echidnas.

We have walking tracks around the property and down to our creek which is about 300 feet below our house but quite easily accessed by steps and graded path.

Many species of native birds, including the world famous lyrebird, inhabit the garden and their calls are easily heard from the verandah.
Because there are no predators the birds are often quite tame and easily able to be observed from the house.

The closest town Churchill, a quiet University town, is 7 kms away and will supply all your needs. The nearest railway station is 16 kms at Morwell where fast, comfortable trains to Melbourne depart 19 times a day and 10 to 12 times at weekends and it is a very pleasant 2 hour trip.

The closest surf beach is about an hour away at Inverloch and the ski fields about 1.5 hours traveling in winter. There are several National Parks close by and local towns and cities also with good restaurants, shops, indoor swimming pool, art gallery, cinemas etc.

Gippsland is a very interesting and stunningly beautiful part of Victoria with glorious beaches, rail trails for cycling, seaside towns and mountains. Not far away is an old gold mining town Walhalla with a tourist railway and a fascinating history.

A Holden Berlina International V6 sedan is available for use as well as a Toyota Hilux 4 wheel drive seating four. There are bikes and canoes available if you wish as well as camping equipment.

The garden will need no maintenance and there is no threat to safety from our timid kangaroos or other beasties.
We are sure you would enjoy a stay in our peaceful and beautiful home.
