With magnificent views of the ranges that surround the Yarra Valley, this 18.5 hectare property, immediately adjacent to Kinglake National Park, contributes to a significant area of high quality continuous remnant native vegetation many thousands of hectares in size. The simple but comfortable dwelling currently comprises two bedrooms and open-plan living/dining areas which lead to full-length balcony with excellent potential to upgrade or enhance (STCA).
This property was generously donated to Trust for Nature by Shirley Anders. You can read more about her story in our Conservation Bulletin.
Due to the large areas of connected native vegetation, the general area is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The nationally endangered Dianella amoena — Matted Flax-lily has been located adjacent to the property on the river flats. As well as Yarra Burgan, Common Cinnamon-wattle, Spotted Gum and Giant Honey-myrtle.
The mixture of vegetation and landscape features on the property provide known habitat for a number of rare and threatened fauna species previously recorded at/on nearby properties. These include Barking Owl, Powerful Owl, Sooty Owl, Tree Goanna, Brush-tailed Phascogale, Common Dunnart and Spotted Quail-thrush.
The site is located approximately 60 km drive from Melbourne (1 hr 15min drive) and close to all the amenities of the Yarra Ranges; spectacular scenery, award-winning restaurants and wineries, and galleries.
Please note that a Trust for Nature conservation covenant will be placed on the property title.
