74 SHOREHAM ROAD RED HILL OMPHNEWS

2 BEDROOMS - 2 BATH - 20 ACRES - STABLES - WORKSHED - DAM

As the sun sets a shifting swell of red; orange and yellow slowly makes its way from the horizon painting the rolling hills, through the valley; kissing the creek before beginning its climb up the gentle slope. A slight pause to caress the outbuildings letting the chooks know its time for the coup and the meandering jersey cows it’s getting late. Tiny flying things explode from the paddocks; the butterfly’s head home and the frogs begin their night time symphony. From the deck you sit; lost in the sights, sounds, the smells of Red Hill Country. Whatever happened today is rejoiced or forgotten as a glass of local red beckons your attention.

Intervening at just the right time, current owners Allister and Lucy have brought a rare mixture of dreamer and doer saving this unique property from the overgrowth of recklessness, restoring, indeed altering its journey in Red Hill history. Embarking on a new home build in 2014 Allister and Lucy have created a hand-built piece of Zen paradise. Recycled raw materials mixed with modern screens of matt black and wide aperture windows, drawing the outside in, dropping your heart rate, slowing your breathing and bringing the grinding cogs of the mind to an oiled stillness.  From the south west facing deck each day is an intriguing work of art; like a skilled magician slowly revealing his trick; the lifting morning fog leisurely unveils the pristine acreage, so subtle in change from yesterday and one you feel rather than see.  A meandering gravel drive weaves its way down to the stables and work shed. You cannot see or hear your neighbours, but their friendliness is ever present; in a social solitude; there when you need them, not when you don’t. The days end is yet another theatrical display of colour and stillness that belongs to nature and you’re simply an observer with front row tickets.

The property is currently used as permanent living sprinkled with successful stints as a B&B when the owners head away for holidays.  Its proximity to the Red Hill village, brewery and gateway to the areas stunning wineries, restaurants, world class golf courses and the surf breaks of Point Leo, Gunnamatta and Flinders positions it as one of the most accessible and strategically best placed homes for a variety of applications.  A perfect couples adobe continuing the essence of the current owners, the ideal weekender or take the current building design and replicate two more on the lower end and you’ll have a collection of B&B’s that just keep on giving.

Whether you’re romantic or commercial or perhaps a desirable combination of both; this is a home that will be a hotly contested piece of Red Hill artistry and one you just can’t miss.  Scheduled for auction on Sunday May 13th at 12:00noon.
