Private Creek and Perfect Home on 6.56 Acres

A remarkable double brick home recently updated in a private location on 6.56 acres. Steeped in history this solid brick home was the first house in the street with ties harking back to the horse station days of the Gillans family from the 1800's when The Slide was known as Gillans Saddle. Combining a generous family home with a running creek, large dam and mixed land in a beautiful native setting, this your chance to upsize on acreage.

This home consists of 4 bedrooms + study, 2 bathrooms and 2nd laundry, generous formal lounge, large open plan renovated modern kitchen, living, and dining, and a huge rumpus room at the rear. Off the rumpus the cantilevered balcony overlooks the sprawling backyard and leafy surrounds. The separate livings zones create a good balance for families and the home still retails some of its historical elements such as the original handmade bricks first found on the property from the original owner.

The master bedroom has an updated en suite and all bedrooms have built-in robes. Some of the many features include Mitsubishi split system, Jindara wood heater, ceiling fans, LED lighting, NBN and 2 phase power. There is also a Growatt solar system with 10 panels to reduce your energy bills.

Externally the property boasts a large circular drive great for guests, as well as rear access to the triple garage with concrete base, power and internal access to the house. To the left of the home is a large undercover outdoor entertainment patio area great for summer entertainment. An easy to maintain lawn surrounds the home, with established trees. The land is fully fenced for stock and pets with walking tracks throughout and double access from the front. A part from the natural spring fed creek that runs throughout the year, water storage is ample with 6 water tanks, and a dam in the middle of the property.

Only 15 minutes to Yarra Glen, 25 minutes to Healesville, 30 minutes to Lilydale and 10 minutes drive in to Kinglake, you have everything you need including the Yarra Valley wine region on your doorstep. With Christmas just around the corner, now if the time to see if this property is your dream home before the holidays. You will not find a more affordable opportunity to get onto acreage.
