Rare Mount Martha Beachside Acreage

Idyllically located on five acres of tranquil pastureland nestled between the Bay and The Briars, this captivating coast-meets-country property presents a rare opportunity to reside in this exclusive rural environment, just minutes to Mount Martha beach and Village, with the potential for wonderful north-facing Bay views from a second storey (STCA).

Privately set well back from the road, down a long driveway, the sprawling, five-bedroom single-level brick home has a rich history and contains unique features such as a timber mantle that originated as a sleeper on The Ghan railway, and handmade convict bricks inserted into the fireplace surrounds. Solidly built, with raked exposed-beam ceilings and slate and timber flooring, the generously proportioned layout is perfect for contemporary family living and effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining.

Oriented towards the north, with far-reaching rural views and bay glimpses through the treetops, the main open plan living/dining area features an open wood fireplace and flows through to the casual dining area that leads to a verandah and elevated entertaining deck. The well-appointed central kitchen has 2 ovens, a Bosch induction cooktop, dishwasher, pantry and the adjoining spacious living area has a woodfire heater and reverse cycle air conditioning.

The master bedroom is zoned in the front section of the home and has a walk-through robe and ensuite bathroom, and another bedroom, with fitted robe, is also in this section and could be ideal as a nursery or study, while a further three large bedrooms, all with built-in robes, plus the main family bathroom are positioned together in the home’s rear zone.

Also includes 2 separate living zones, a powder room, laundry with external access, an abundance of storage cabinetry, split system heating/cooling, and outside is a timber separate studio/home office, a four-car garage/machinery shed plus a covered double carport attached to the home.

Originally set up for equestrian pursuits, the 20,234 square metres (approx.) of elevated, undulating land is fully fenced, with paddocks, bushland pockets and a dam that attracts native wildlife including turtles and blue-tongue lizards. Birdlife also abounds in this tranquil landscape with kookaburras and blue wrens regular visitors. There are three large-capacity water tanks, and an assortment of established fruit trees including apple, plum and olive.

This fabulous Mornington Peninsula location is just a short walk to Balcombe Grammar, Balcombe Creek Trail, and The Briars, and within five minutes to Mornington or Mount Martha beaches and shopping.
