18 STOKES STREET FLINDERS

Much of peninsula boast the coast-country lifestyle; however, Flinders is one of the few towns that really pulls it off.  Different in culture to its neighbours on the western side; Sorrento and Portsea, Flinders enjoys a stillness; a place where you can live peacefully all year round, in summer soak in the warmer atmosphere; and locals will tell you, winter is just as endearing.  The ambience of an open fire, the freshness of Westernport bay, the bare branches of deciduous tree lined streets and driveways creates a non-pretentious familiarity.  Weekend community footy with a few beers and a stroll home, local winter produce on the menu and the ruggedness of the open surf.  In town you stop for a casual chat and dogs on leads say a respectful hello.

Property in Flinders is special and occasionally the town offers up one of its more historical homes for sale.  Homes such as this one only come on the market when father time taps the shoulder and a new chapter is calling. 

This property is simply beautiful. The sweeping driveway is a statement on its own. Bordered with indigenous plantings of mature shrubs, bushes and trees acting as a theatre curtain revealing an unprecedented parcel of landscaped gardens and dwellings that fit perfectly into the setting.  Wrap around covered decking, a country manor feel. High ceilings, polished wooden floors, neutral toned carpeted bedrooms; an open fireplace and large windows showcasing the surrounds.  Stylish for the sophisticated taste; friendly for the those who crave the company and peaceful for the melancholy to connect with their books and garden. It’s a sharing type of air, meals are conversation and relaxation is relaxation. 

The current owners have added the ideal guest accommodation. A large but unobtrusive colorbond shed; fitted with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom and upstairs causal lounge, kitchen and master bedroom; views over the garden to a display of veggie boxes. Now growing veggies is not difficult but just looking at them conjures ideas and emotions that stimulates connections. It’s a strange sensation but one that’s as filling as the food itself.  

The full-sized tennis court jutting onto the main home has hosted many a match and the local oval; just over the road, has witnessed kick to kick extend to 40 meters as the young ones have grown into a full sized sherrin. 

This is more than 1.3 acres of prime Flinders landholding with one of the best presented homes in the district. This is a home that brings the Flinders township to the doorstep.  Walk to the village, walk to the oval, walk to the beach.  Once part of the 2000 acres making up WILGA farm; the original dwelling dates back more than 80 years. Part of Flinders history and a significant influence on those privileged to make it their home.
