Designed to ensure year round comfort and efficiency this charming three bedroom two storey (barn style) home allows you to enjoy the spectacular Northerly views across the Otway Ranges from the living areas, deck and upstairs master bedroom. The property is so efficient it's off the grid! You will never receive a power bill no matter how often you are there, making 110 Old Colac Road the ideal weekend getaway or permanent residence. Step inside the front door, kick off your shoes in the large entry boot room and enter the open plan kitchen, dining and living by area. Timber features throughout the home and allows you to truly immerse yourself into quiet country life. Downstairs also consists of two bedrooms both with BIRs, a modest bathroom, separate toilet and storage aplenty in the laundry with outside access.
This much loved property features a gorgeous established garden, fruit trees and netted berry plantation containing gooseberries, red currents and blueberries. Last year the current owners picked an impressive 45kg of blueberries! There is plenty of room for more and the seasonal weather and rainfall is ideal for growing fruit and vegies - the area is well known for it's potato farming. Maybe it's time to invest in that hobby farm you have always dreamed about.
Located only a few minutes drive from the Otway Fly Treetop Walk, the most scenic waterfall and rainforest walks in Victoria and under 30 minutes to the Great Ocean Road. Beech Forest also has its own local pub, cafe/general store and is frequented by tourists enjoying the wonderful produce grown in the region as part of the Otway Harvest Trail. Don't miss the opportunity to own your very own 5 acres with a sustainable home and spectacular views.
