The absolutely breathtaking views spanning the Tarago Reservoir and beyond from the appropriately named ‘Celestial Garden’ are without doubt the ‘million dollar’ views one only dreams of – the spectacular ever changing scenery one would never tire of – the elevated architect designed home spanning 700sqm that is not only orientated to capture the stunning panorama from every possible location within the home but also constructed so as to provide a wonderfully large and inviting family residence, or if desired, two separate homes on two separate levels – perfect for extended family, entertaining guests or possible additional income potential – add the stunning gardens and quality pastures and one can see why this holding really does offer it all. The 12.5 acre property boasts over 5 acres of exquisite park and gardens, 7 acres of high quality pasture, as well as outbuildings and infrastructure in abundance.
The main level of the residence features large open plan living, including lounge, family and meals areas designed to capture jaw dropping views from every location, whilst the well equipped kitchen with double ovens, as well as all the amenities one would expect from a home of this calibre, is located on the same level – again to capture the spectacular vista at every opportunity. A magnificent wide verandah runs the entire length of this level and is the perfect location for quiet reflection, large family gatherings or sophisticated entertaining. Accommodation on this level consists of two large master bedrooms, an enormous walk through wardrobe and large ensuite including spa – underfloor heating is a luxurious added bonus. A third bedroom, another bathroom, a superb oversized laundry and a large double garage with direct access, complete this well designed level of the home.
The upper floor provides a further two king sized bedrooms or one and large studio/office space, again with wonderful views, gabled ceilings and full sized bathroom.
The lower level of the home consists of a large apartment or extended family retreat, complete with its own private access and includes 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room with charming outdoor patio area that includes views to the garden.
The grounds of ‘Celestial Garden’ have been carefully designed to capture not only the wonderful views but also to utilise the contours of the land to their very best advantage. The captivating rose gardens include rare and old world roses, Heritage and new breed roses, the formal garden boasts an exquisite large fountain at its heart. The native gardens and the Camellia gardens all flow easily onto one another with abundant seating throughout to enjoy the perfumes of the blooms, the sound of the beautiful bird life and of course the peace and tranquility of this special place. There are open spaces with lawn and park like zones that include Weeping Maples and Cherries, an orchard area with an abundance of fruiting and hazelnut trees, the vegetable garden – all paved with extra-large beds and abundant water supply, the ‘Secret Garden’, fish ponds, a grand climbing Rose covered walk-through – that at 30 x 5 metres would make a magical wedding location complete with views to the Strezleki Ranges and Mount Worth. ‘The Pavilion’ – a self-contained space with power and lighting is perfect for functions – carefully designed and placed for ease of access and low maintenance. The well fenced and maintained 7 acres of high quality pasture flows down from the border of the garden to the lower side of the property.
External buildings and shedding include an extra large brick garage located close to the main home – fully lined and powered with sink, bench, workroom attached. There is a large 5 bay implement shed on entering the property with extra height roof-line, plus another 3 bay shed within ‘The Park’ – all with water tanks in place and pumps attached – 44,000 gallons in total. Taps and irrigation are spread throughout the property.
All power to ‘Celestial Garden’ is underground so as not to impede the views, ADSL internet including Foxtel is available throughout the home. Heating and cooling are provided by a large wood heater in the main living zone for the cooler months, floor heating and large dual air conditioning units throughout the home to cater for every season.
This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a substantial holding in a beautiful location within the Gippsland region – you can even land a helicopter here! With cafes, art galleries, gourmet food, arts and crafts, pony club, wineries, National Parks, Mt Baw Baw Ski Resort and more at the doorstep, ‘Celestial Garden’ offers a rare chance to secure the relaxed country lifestyle of your dreams.
