Historic 6 acre property with superb bay views. Tightly held within the same family for generations, ‘Tarra’ showcases 5.98 stunning acres of fertile red mountain soil with charming gardens, a four-bedroom home and breathtaking views across neighbouring vineyards and pasture framing Western Port Bay and Phillip Island. One of the regions finest panoramas!
Laced in history as a former sawmill, the property was also the site of one of region’s first vineyards growing grapes for 20 years under the label ‘Cotton Springs’, while one of the sheds hosted the foundation meeting of the Mornington Peninsula Vignerons’ Association.
Now with numerous citrus and fruit trees and a picturesque olive grove, the romance of this magical setting continues with just a few relics remaining of that bygone era.
Architect designed in the 1970s with a California-ranch style elegance, the residence provides a distinctly unique layout with both formal and informal living zones in the main house skirted by a wraparound balcony with stunning water views, which are shared off the large master with a contemporary ensuite and private terrace.
Across a covered patio, an annexe comprises three additional bedrooms along with a second bathroom, providing fabulous guest lodgings or separate quarters for older kids.
Providing an exceptional lifestyle opportunity with spectacular views to Phillip Island and the hills beyond, the property includes a gas fireplace, dishwasher, dual Smeg oven, sunroom, wine cellar, powder room, storeroom, various sheds, 22K-litre rain water supply and triple car accommodation.
