unique-country-retreat-goes-to-auctionAt this auction, you’ll have to chance to get two for the price of one, including the charmingly restored Almurta Hall.

THIS week’s special property offer comes from LJ Hooker in Wonthaggi which is marketing a unique country retreat at Grantville where you’ll quite likely get more than you bargained for but in a good way!
The auction is coming up on Saturday, October 11, although prior offers will be considered and you have the opportunity this Saturday, October 4, between 1pm and 2pm to take a pre-auction day peek at an open for inspection.
There’s little doubt that you’ll like what you see and there’s a significant bonus for you to discover.
According to the agents, “this is an extremely rare chance to secure both an historic hall dating back to 1929 and a three bedroom cottage” in the one property.
“The Almurta hall has been painstakingly restored to include the original polished floor boards, 12 foot ceilings and curtained stage,” said Scott Hughes of LJ Hooker.
“The main hall has a large inverter split system and wood heater for all year round comfort and features a separate kitchen with open fireplace.
“Also included in this rare package is a neat and tidy three bedroom cottage enjoying peaceful garden outlooks from every room.”
According to Scott, the lounge and dining area is a great place to relax and entertain with an open fireplace and opening onto a deck which offers outstanding views. The modern kitchen includes dishwasher, pantry, ceramic cook top and wood heater.
The property is spread over two titles comprising some 3320m2 of lush lawns, beautiful gardens, bitumen driveway and paths. There is also a 9x7x2.7 metre garage, carport and approximately 43,000 litres of water.
It offers a secluded and sheltered park like setting only an hour’s drive from Melbourne’s eastern suburbs and only six minutes from Grantville and the Bass Highway.
“This is an extremely rare offering which would be an exciting country getaway or would suit uses such as a B&B, café artist studio, reception centre or numerous other commercial pursuits, subject to council approval.”
The auction is being held on site at 1pm on Saturday, October 11 but don’t leave it until then to make an offer if you’re keen.
