Sought After Serenity
This two-bedroom cottage on a substantial 40,400 m2 / 9.98 acre landholding within the sought after Bend of Islands delivers the best of both worlds. Offering absolute privacy, nestled amongst the trees and it is still close enough to be able to commute to the city for work, school and culture that Melbourne has to offer.
Mudbricks and a carefully considered combination of reclaimed and repurposed materials, including slate, red gum slabs in a unique timber floor, and enormous bridge timbers, feature in a charming character filled interior that includes two bedrooms, one enjoying the ease of direct access to the family bathroom.
A bespoke kitchen under thick red-gum bench tops is seamlessly integrated within the spacious open plan living area. Complete with a woodfire heater and filled with natural light introduced by north facing clerestory windows, it includes double glazed windows and doors which increase its thermal properties.
Protected by the elements, feeling as though it has air-conditioning in summer, and with the fire heating it up beautifully in winter its thermal mass has it genuinely comfortable all year round.
The interior is complemented by an enormous covered outdoor area where you can relax and enjoy life at a slower pace against a bush background which is home to visiting wild and birdlife, a diverse variety of frogs, and a broad array of flora including many different endangered native orchids.
A far cry from the hustle and bustle of the city yet easily accessing Warrandyte, Diamond Creek, Eltham and Hurstbridge, a relaxed stroll has you on the banks of the Yarra. Upstream from Warrandyte, it is cleaner than many other stretches of the river, which only adds to the lifestyle appeal.
A completely captivating package, it beckons quiet relaxation and the good life.
