Renowned for its ocean beaches and relaxed coastal lifestyle, Ocean Grove has a lot to offer sea-changers; but what about those seeking the treed life? Easy...the highly coveted Bellevue estate, just a 2 minute drive from the water is the answer to your dreams.
A small acreage estate just far enough away from the summertime crowds, Bellevue offers its residents a unique rural escape with the benefit of some of Australia's most popular coastline on your doorstep. Add to that the spectacular views across rolling farmland, the bleating of grazing sheep and the call of cockatoos and you are assured your place in heaven... right here on earth.
The property itself welcomes you into its hedged circular drive via a timbered gateway at the end of an intimate court with only a handful of other homes and friendly neighbours. The hedge gives way to a discreet path leading to the entry of an executive style farmhouse that caters perfectly to families with its 4 King sized bedrooms and 2 huge living areas. Other features such as polished timber floors, a luxury ensuite with spa, full timber country kitchen (with Kleenmaid appliances and a proper walk in pantry), period cornicing and Victorian lighting all make for a character filled home that flows seamlessly from one area to the next ensuring that every member of the family has plenty of room to indulge in their personal pleasures.
The blending of traditional design with new technology is a standout element with sashless double hung windows providing unobstructed views of the extensive 1 1/4 acre grounds, cross ventilation for climate control and an interior that is flooded with natural light. Ducted heating and evaporative cooling compliment the solid fuel combustion unit and ceiling fans throughout whilst a walled garden is home to the contemporary north facing alfresco and inground solar heated/salt chlorinated swimming pool.
The rendered stone finish and wide verandahs speak volumes about classic styling in an environment that belies its true location on the edge of a bustling township just 20 minutes from Geelong. Where else can you enjoy chic cafes, shops and seaside activities just moments from your private country retreat boasting endless rural views in the heart of a gourmet food and wine region so close to a major regional city?
