Description

Harcourts Hastings is proud to offer for sale the opportunity of a lifetime, the Exclusive Private Island Hideaway – Eleanor Estate!

This majestic, entirely off-grid, property is situated on French Island, which is approximately an hour’s drive from Melbourne and accessible by regular passenger ferry from Stony Point or the vehicle barge from Corinella.

Often referred to as one of the best-located properties on French Island, Eleanor Estate is situated on a generous allotment of 100 acres (approx. 40ha.) of undulating pastures and mature, sweeping gum trees. Meticulously designed and built, the 6-year-old, two storey luxury timber farmhouse must truly be seen to be believed. The residence offers only the best fixtures and fittings; such as one of a kind, century old leadlight windows and timber floorboards plus many other pre-loved and vintage inspired building materials, which were sourced from prestigious inner city homes in Toorak, Kew, and Malvern.

Consisting of three bedrooms, one main bathroom, and the plumbing in place and space allocation for a second ensuite bathroom, the home offers all the modern conveniences one would expect, plus an added dash of character and heart. All of the bedrooms overlook the rolling hill and bay views, with their own French doors, offering direct access onto the private deck which wraps around both the upper and lower levels of the home. The heart of the home would have to be the beautiful French provincial style kitchen, with stone bench-tops, quality fixtures which blend seamlessly with the style of the home and compliment the quality appliances at hand. There are four large sheds with an abundance of space for storage or business usage, with additional space for an expansive vegetable garden, There is no hard work on this property to complete.

Another feature that makes this home even more unique is its ability to run efficiently using its own power source, leaving no power or water rates to pay. Solar panels provide reliable power to the property that is backed up with a diesel generating system. There is also 48-volt battery storage (deep cycle batteries) ensuring off-grid power self-sufficiency capability. A slow combustion wood fire heats the home and there are two Fujitsu reverse-cycle air-conditioners which offer relief from the warmer months. Surrounded by bushland and shelterbelts, the home is sheltered and a home to many resident wildlife, which includes koalas, various bird species (including swans, ducks, ibis, kookaburras, and parrots) plus rare plant species. The property runs Angus cattle, sheep and alpacas and the rich pastures have been kept free of superphosphates and other fertilisers.

This truly unique property furthers its appeal by offering in conjunction with the sale of the home, a freehold business, allowing the option to continue running it’s successful ‘French Island Glamping’ business, or choose to have a relaxing lifestyle in an idyllic country setting, surrounded by stunning rural and coastline views overlooking Dragon Bay. The business, French Island Glamping is a well- established fully operational, highly acclaimed tourist destination for luxury accommodation. It offers five luxury Glamping Bell Tents with existing permits for seven.

French Island Glamping was awarded the 2017-2018 Trip Adviser Certificate of Excellence Award. It also received excellent 5 Star reviews. The business has enormous potential for future growth should the new owner wish to take the business to the next level and further their income capacity.
