In a truly stunning pristine wilderness location, this property has two houses, a self contained one room apartment and a huge shed with studio and loft bedroom.
The property is on the edge of the lush rainforest of the Tarra Bulga National park. It is 50 metres from the Tarra River, and is surrounded by the emerald green, semi-forested pasture land of the sheltered Tarra Valley.
The houses are set on 5 acres of land, 3 acres semi-forested, and 2 acres of permaculture gardens, filled with berry and fruit trees, lavender paths, comfrey bushes, herbs, old French rose hedges, young avocados, young mulberries, 350 mature asparagus plants, and a huge flower field of 6 foot high blue sage. The gardening has all been done according to permaculture/wilderness gardening type ideas, principles and aesthetics, so it is quite lush, wild and natural.
The main house is large and spacious with thick blonde bamboo floorboards throughout. 4 bedrooms with a study, spacious decking, stunning views.
The second house is newly renovated with 2 bedrooms, and gorgeous interior design, with huge abstract wall paintings by established Melbourne artist William Holt.
It is currently being used as an accommodation/rainforest retreat business which you can check out at www.tarkiratree.com . The space is ideal for what I do, which is teach meditation and healing to retreat clients. It is also used for straight accommodation for tourists.
The separate apartment space has a lovely peaked wooden ceiling and an ensuite bathroom. This space is also being used currently as a bed and breakfast or straight accommodation business space. Both spaces have been booked out over the holiday period, and have been generating an income of about $1600 a week during this peak time of Christmas, new year, and early to mid jan. Both spaces are listed on airb'n'b and you can check them out thru that site also, and check out all the lovely positive reviews from guests.
The huge shed on the property, very close to the river, is currently being used as an artists studio and has a built in studio room with a low ceilinged loft bedroom above it. The studio and loft are ultra insulated and have all double glazed windows and a great wood heater. In the last 3-4years we have installed two giant water tanks with new plumbing (one tank is a reserve that we have never had to use) , solar panels and solar hot water service, double insulation under the main house and double insulation in the roof.
This is one of the very few properties with multiple spacious buildings for creative uses not too far from Melbourne that is genuinely in a stunning rainforest location. The gorgeous wilderness location makes it truly viable as a tourist type business if you are interested in a lifestyle property.
