DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!! WELCOME TO 'ROSELEIGH RISE'
WOW!! An established permaculture inspired, self-sufficient and environmentally friendly property has come to market and is ready to move straight in! This magnificent property has been carefully developed by people who care for the earth and have worked in harmony with the environment to create a unique lifestyle. Be in charge of the life you want to live on this 5.85-acre property. The infrastructure set up, seamlessly integrates with all aspects of the property, and allows for a plethora of organic fruit and vegetables.
On entering the property from a sealed road, you are greeted by a tree lined driveway, sweeping park-like grounds with established European trees, the original cottage currently used as a creative studio space, fenced stock paddocks and glimmer of the main home nestled at the top of the rise. Behind the cottage is a large workshop garage and office area perfect for home-based business. Continuing along the driveway there is a large stable with two horse stalls and secure under cover areas to contain animals if needed. A large chicken coop is at the side of the stables with a 25,000 litre potable water tank for studio and stock use. Moving along the driveway is a wetland dam and the main grazing paddock for stock. All the paddocks are integrated for ease of stock movement throughout the property. Beyond the main paddock is a 14-year-old micro vineyard with room for further expansion. The main orchard is planted with heritage stone fruits, olives, apples, apricots, cherries, figs, blueberries, gooseberries, currants, and several citrus varieties.
Sweeping up the driveway is the main residence which is surrounded by a circular driveway and native gardens. The 14-year-old home sits proudly in the landscape overlooking the valley views and boasts a fully stand-alone remote power station and over 100,000 litres of potable water collected from the roof held in 4 separate tanks making it totally off the grid providing free electricity and water. This home has been built with craftsmanship, detailed consideration and architecturally designed to work in harmony with nature and harness passive energy. The home is approx. 17 squares with open plan living, 3 spacious bedrooms and two al fresco entertaining areas capturing the majestic views from inside to out. The bathroom is huge, and the period claw foot bath and large shower are seamlessly connected with the outdoors through the beautiful windows. The spotted gum timber floors are spectacular and have been oiled with plant based organic oils ensuring allergy free living. The kitchen has an electric double oven with 5 burner cooktops plus an IXL semi combustion wood stove. The main sitting area has 4.8-metre-high ceilings and north facing clerestory window which allows the winter sun to warm the Timber Crete thermal mass wall. This along with a fully combustible Nectre wood heater, double glazed windows and doors, envirotex thermal acoustic insulation in internal and external wall, ceiling and under floor, keeps the temperature of the house at a comfortable degree, no matter what the weather outside.
The house is powered by a sizable solar system ensuring abundant supply of electricity. Under the house is a well sized spacious workshop with adjoining cellar. Outside also features an extensive organic vegetable garden with 18 raised beds, a fully sealed green house to start seedlings, a bush house to harden off before planting out into the garden or into a 6 metre polly tunnel that also extends the harvest over winter. A potting shed, compost bays and small holding dam are close by. The top paddock has a sectioned area with three very productive beehives averaging 30kg of honey per hive per annum.
