'Ovens View' at 540 Kays Road, Tarrawingee is the epitome of privacy and tranquillity. Located just 10 minutes from Wangaratta via the Great Alpine Road the 4.4 acre property has an extremely rare and direct overview of the Ovens River.

The changing moods and seasons of the river provide a panorama from the verandahs, master bedroom and living rooms of the high set home just 60 metres away. The whole of the property is part of the high flood free terrace.

Originally an extension of the adjoining farm, the present owners, who have relocated to Melbourne for business reasons, have created a low maintenance property that includes mature eucalypts and natives, around 20 olive trees, orchard trees and an irrigated two acre merlot/chardonnay vineyard. The title adjoins the leased Crown river frontage with its massive and majestic Red Gums, grassed undercrofts and huge gravel and sand banks along the frontage.

The twelve year old homestead style three bedroom is of Hebel panel and colorbond construction with polished hardwood floors throughout. The latter along with vaulted ceilings, a northern aspect and clerestory windows provide lots of winter sun, natural light and endow a warm ambience to the living areas.

The master bedroom with en-suite is spacious and enjoys river views. Two other bedrooms have built in robes and an adjoining bathroom. An expansive open plan living area incorporates kitchen and dining spaces with heating provided from a wood fired unit with reverse cycle air conditioning and multiple ceiling fans throughout. In addition to the 180 m2 of living space, there are covered timber decked veranda's on four sides, linking the part covered outdoor recreational/alfresco timber deck area which provide an additional 190m2 of all weather living space.

The adjoining two car carport and powered colorbond shed of 122 m2 also has a self contained toilet and shower. The shed which has two roller doors has a machinery bay extension for a tractor, caravan, boat or motorbikes.

The vendor is a Paralympian who designed the home to be seamlessly accessible, which includes graded walkways and ramps, all weather pathways, open plan design, stepless showers and open ensuites, many of which are a much sought after feature for anybody seeking ease of access.

The agents Morris Bros who will sell 'Ovens View' by tender describe the Tarrawingee property as idyllic and a 'stress free zone' with its extremely rare, private riverside location.
