221 South Cathedral Lane, Taggerty VIC 3714
"BUCOLIC PENUMBRA" (Idyllic Rural Setting) House on Acreage - Property ID: 957917
This unique 36 acre property will appeal to buyers who are seeking their own private sanctuary abutting the Cathedral Range National Park. Once you enter the discrete driveway you are treated to a vista of the Cathedral Ranges which grows as you travel up the 800m (approx.) drive past the large trout filled dam and up to the house. The property is set well back from the Lane giving it privacy and a commanding view of the surrounding ranges that has to be seen to be truly appreciated. The table setting beneath the oak tree and open fire pit provides the perfect spot to absorb the splendid views and dramatic sunsets.
The concrete slab, three bedroom, two bathroom open plan house, with exposed truss ceilings in the living area, is 7 years young and originally designed by a local architect with contributions from the owners, who themselves were reputable architects from Melbourne. The building combines quality fittings with energy efficient features and zoning overlay requirements to produce an extremely low running cost home with full solar and battery power, large capacity rainwater tanks, bottled gas plumbing, back-up generator and central wood burner. The wood supply is never an issue with more than 15 acres of peppermint, mountain ash, wattle and other species providing regular replenishment as they naturally fall.
The majority of the property is cleared and paddocks established for livestock if you wish. The house sits on a concrete slab and has a large 15m x 6m colorbond shed with double roller doors and 2 side entrance doors with a veranda covered path to the house. An additional site with driveway access is currently used for excess parking and can easily accommodate a future 15m x 6m shed with veranda or other building STCA.
For nature lovers the property is surrounded by established wildlife corridors, a seasonal creek that flows much of the year and drains into the Cerberus Creek. This provides ample opportunities to observe the abundant flora and fauna in the Triangle area.
Only a short drive to General Store, Skate Park, Hotel, Primary School in the township of Buxton.
