Nestled discreetly within the landscape on the Western side of King Island, ‘Buttons Road’ provides a completely self sufficient oasis for the artist, nature lover, environmentalist or indeed anyone in search of privacy and seclusion.

Entry to the main home meanders via a charming boardwalk through a rear atrium which is complete with entertaining area, outdoor wood heater, and a raised bank of herb and salad/garden beds – perfect for casual dining with friends and family. The main home opens to a light and bright open plan kitchen and dining area with stainless steel appliances, large modern pantry and kitchen island with seating. The main living room boasts polished timber floors and imposing wood heater with its very own oven to the lower section and is capable of heating the entire home beautifully when needed. Large windows take in the wonderful views from this zone, as they do also in the well proportioned main and second bedrooms. Bathrooms to either end of the home are large and functional with one even having a storage loft above. There is a dedicated study/ studio/office with views over one of the two decked outdoor areas to the front of the property which of course also has those stunning views.
