The views from the home over Andersons Inlet are extraordinary.
WHEN Bob and Jean Stone were in their early 50s, they spotted this magnificent elevated site of 2.86 acres.
It had vast and panoramic sea and coastal views but not a tree in sight.
They purchased it and built their retirement home there in 1984 and called it ‘Bahla Bluff’ after the name of their 750 acre grazing property ‘Koombahla’ at Dumbalk.
‘Bahla Bluff’ was designed to capture the fantastic 180 degree water views which are uninterrupted from Wilsons Prom to Eagles Nest and from all of Andersons Inlet out to the horizon of Bass Strait.
It is an outstanding residence of the time being solid brick with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living room areas, viewing platform and a double garage.
Over the years they created a beautiful native garden and also put in a gravel tennis court.
Many a fun family day was had there with the four siblings Lewis, John, Kaye and Martin plus the 15 grandchildren and friends.
Later a Compass in-ground swimming pool was added much to the delight of the kids and others!
The property is located only 5km from Inverloch in a very private yet not totally secluded area.
You can walk into Inverloch via the beautiful Screw Creek nature walk which is a very pleasant walk.
The mature garden offers wonderful privacy and is a habitat for many native birds as Jean and Bob were keen to create a protected and bountiful environment.
Over the years a whole host of visitors (for Weekly Times… including Brunetta Stocco) have been awe struck by the magnificent views and you will be too.
Many very happy events were held there including Lewis and Judy’s wedding (and others) plus quite a number of birthdays and celebrations.
For 31 years this was the family gathering point, but with Jean sadly passing away at 88 recently and Bob not being able to look after ‘Bahla Bluff’, it has been reluctantly decided by Bob to sell the property by auction on Saturday, February 28 at 1pm conducted by his eldest son Lewis Stone from Lewis Stone Real Estate, Inverloch.
