Unique family estate - income potential

A true one-of-a-kind, this 1.2ha Stillwater sanctuary presents an enticing opportunity to live, work or accommodate extended family in paradise. Known as Whistler's Lodge, the property is a much-admired local icon with a colourful history that will surprise and delight buyers with a passion for the unique.

The main residence, originally a 1930s schoolhouse, was relocated to the site in the 1980s. Many original features were carefully retained. British entertainer Ronnie Ronalde, once declared the world's greatest whistler, purchased it in 1988 as his home and declared it Whistler's Lodge.

As well as the generous main house, the property boasts a two-bedroom sleepout, one-bedroom sleepout, as well as a 72sqm garage (with WiFi and power) and a β€˜She-Shed' for hobbies or art.

The current owners have poured their heart and soul into the property, which is a feast for the senses in every way. The spacious four bedroom home is filled with rich textures and tones, as well as vintage features that have been repurposed wherever possible. Quality and comfort are not sacrificed however, as it is beautifully finished and designed for easy modern living. Many inviting areas throughout provide space to relax and reset, while the upper level is the ideal teenage retreat.

The property's picturesque proportions and landscaped grounds have seen it host many large family occasions over the years, from milestone birthdays to long Italian lunches by the pool. The 100sqm deck at the front overlooks the sweeping lawns and countryside vista, while the private pool complex boasts a wood-fired pizza oven, chimenea and covered patio.

This premium lifestyle property is in an exclusive location. Silverdale is close by and the new Penlink onramp (under construction) will be only two minutes drive away.
