Just 15 minutes from both Colac and Forrest is this fabulous craftsman build home set on approximately 5 acres of Otways natural bush. Built from Limestone and Western red cedar this approx. 30 year old, 3 bedroom family home blends into the natural bush setting with fabulous views from every window even the sky window over the bath.
The layout of this home takes account of the beautiful setting with the living room opening onto a small seating area that takes advantage of east facing aspect to curl up with your morning coffee and a favourite book. This rustic open plan living dining area has a beautiful antique brick open fire place with timber mantle of local Otway Cyprus and exposed beam ceilings. The kitchen views to the secluded yard make washing dishes a delight but the dishwasher means you can spend more time outside. The gas upright stove is supplemented by the combustion oven in winter.
The rustic nature of this property is further enhanced by the use of cedar windows and doors, slate floors in the bathroom and polished Tasmanian oak flooring and natural timber staircase. Located upstairs are three bedroom. The master suite comes complete with its own balcony and walk in robe as well as access to the attic storage. The other 2 bedrooms both have built in robes and views over the rear of the property.

The ample sized laundry and mud room provides extra storage and space for all those messy coats and bags. There is a carport attached to the house and a garage and workshop is also included with this property.
The nearly 5 acres is virgin Otways native forest with a dam set up with a pump for watering the garden and fire-fighting and 25,000 lt tank water for the house. The gardens surrounding the house have been planned with the natural environment in mind and terraced with stone and stone steps have been used with the introduction of native plants to encourage birds and butterflies.
