A Botanist’s Dream!!! 11.25 acres nestled in the Barham Valley just a 5 minute drive from Apollo Bay and very close to the renowned local scenic spot, aptly named ‘Paradise’. This property is exceptional, offering a deciduous nurtured forest of exotic trees from across the world blending beautifully with the indigenous native bush.
The property has many overlays including public conservation and resource, rural conservation, environmental significance, significant landscape, vegetation protection, bushfire and erosion overlays. Obtaining planning permission is not guaranteed, we recommend contacting Colac Otway Shire for more information.
The land has a story to tell. Owned for the past 40 years by a passionate Botanist, who was the Government Botanist of Victoria and Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens for many years. It is clearly evident the property was a retirement dream; the love and dedication shown in the planned planting and selection of rare and beautiful trees is testament to a deep knowledge and understanding of nature at its finest.
The acreage is well laid out with two cleared areas. There are four driveway entry points; one off the Barham River Road and three off Killala Road. This property is a tribute to the thought and planning undertaken in creating an incredible environment complete with a dam, cleared vehicle tracks as well as walking trails.
With gorgeous mountain views to the north, close proximity to Apollo Bay, the sounds of the Barham River bubbling along in the background, this property is ready and waiting for someone with vision and a love of nature.
