"Littleglen"

Littleglen is a cosy 3 bedroom cottage set on approximately 20 acres of mature chestnut, olive and hazelnut trees in the Victorian alpine region, 5 minutes from Wandiligong and 10 minutes from beautiful Bright.

Enjoy spectacular views from the verandah as you unwind from a days bush walking, skiing or simply soaking up the serenity. Beautiful, practical and affordable this property is suitable as a year round retreat or the ultimate tree change.

The House and Land
The property includes flat pasture with natural spring, sloping groves of chestnut and hazelnut trees (approximately 11 acres cleared), and a wood of your own native alpine bushland (approximately 8 acres) including nature walking/biking/horse riding trail and shady glades. It is divided into 3 main paddocks with recently installed ring-lock and plain wire fencing and automatic water troughs.

The cottage was built approximately 8 years ago and is environmentally considerate, including good natural lighting and orientation, gas hot water and cooking, a wood burning stove for heat in the winters and good insulation. The house is powered by an accredited solar power system, including new panels installed in 2007 and an automated generator with long range fuel tank. Rainwater is collected from the house and the shed into a large poly tank, installed in 2007.

The living space comprises an open plan living and dining area with stripped wood floors, a charming country kitchen and generous front verandah overlooking the property and Morses Creek, with beautiful valley views from each window. There are 2 good size double bedrooms, the master with built ins and access to the verandah, and the third bedroom a single room. The bathroom has been recently renovated and opens through to a compact laundry room. There is ample room on both sides of the cottage to extend if you need more space, architects plans have been drawn up for a extension to take the property to 5 bedrooms should this be required.

The house paddock comprises approximately 1 acre of landscaped terraces and lawns, with native and cottage gardens; a vegetable terrace with raised sleeper beds; a small fruit tree orchard and a fenced enclosure suitable for chickens or young stock in the shade of the chestnut trees. There is also a newly built Ranbuild large colour bond shed (13 x 7m), with power connected and suitable for a range of uses.
