About this listing
If you've been looking for a private home in the bush, but that is still close to the beach and town conveniences, then this is it.
Set on 1.5 acres of garden and orchards and surrounded by the Great Otway National Park, Walshan House offers privacy in a beautiful natural environment.
This two level, fairy tale, mud brick home features beautiful timber French doors with lead light, Wisteria lined veranda and antique furniture.
The double height entry and dining area gives a feeling of open space and light.
The lounge area has a wood fire, TV, DVD and a piano. There is also a second lounge/sun room which is the perfect place to read, or just watch the clouds roll by. This sun room also houses a large selection of games, jig saw puzzles and children's toys.
There is a queen bedroom and a bathroom on this level too. The bathroom has a built in bath in the window looking out onto the National Park.
Upstairs there is an open, mezzanine level featuring a four poster queen size bed with doors onto an ocean view rooftop deck. There is also a single bed with trundle underneath on this level, along with a bathroom.
Double doors from the dining area lead out on to the deck and paved BBQ area.
The large, mowed grass area around the house provides plenty of space for a game of cricket or football.
Walshan House is located on the Great Ocean Road at Marengo, only a 5 minute drive into Apollo Bay to restaurants, cafes, shops, and a great swimming beach.
Shelley Beach is close by, and is part of the Great Ocean Walk along the coast and through the National Park.
