Tucked away between Ocean Grove and Queenscliff, on the ocean side of the Bellarine Highway, is a secluded hinterland haven that offers the best of semi-rural living minutes from the beach and the best the Bellarine has to offer.
Boasting spectacular views to a secret lagoon, ‘Hamalot’ located at 152-170 Creswell Road in Marcus Hill is a modern four-bedroom home set on approximately 18 acres with three living spaces, a fantastic outdoor entertainment zone and an endless swimming pool with spa.
The home comes surrounded by three main paddocks, three secondary paddocks, four dams, expansive shedding and a fabulous display of established trees.
RT Edgar rural manager Peter Lindeman said ‘Hamalot’ is a private country retreat with plenty of extras, wide open spaces and wonderful lake and sunset views.
“It’s hard to believe such an oasis exists in the heart of the Bellarine,” Mr Lindeman said.
“Whether you’re an animal lover or just want your own private space to enjoy, this property has it all.
“Acreages like this so close to some of the most popular coastal towns in Victoria are a rarity in the current market.”
The home boasts an elevated swim/spa and adjoining undercover heated spa with views across the south paddock dam and beyond “Freshwater Lake” waiting to be appreciated.
Home to black swans, shorebirds and spoonbills, the picturesque lagoon attracts native birdlife and creates a dynamic scene with a stunning sunset backdrop.
With hard wearing bamboo floors and crisp white walls throughout, the home feels welcoming and spacious.
The main bedroom includes a contemporary ensuite with sleek black floor-to-ceiling tiles, a large walk-in robe and an impressive outlook over the lake.
Featuring a servery window, a full suite of Bosch appliances and an enviable butler’s pantry, the kitchen is elegant and overlooks the comfortable lounge room and dining space which in turn merges seamlessly via stacker doors to the fabulous alfresco.
This undercover outdoor entertainment zone with aggregate concrete underfoot can be enjoyed year-round thanks to its surrounding glass-balustrade and cafe blinds.
Two large palms, an oak and mature eucalypt trees can be found in the well-maintained front yard and a trio of reclaimed Barwon Heads bridge timber bollards surrounded by low-lying flora forms a sculptural display at the home’s facade.
Shedding includes an enormous multi-purpose shed to the west, and two oversized, high-roofed double garages to the east – one is 8x9m and the other is 7x9m – suitable for storing machinery or a boat.
A 27-panel, 8.2kW solar array assists with supplying 3-phase power to both the house and sheds.
There’s town water supply, four dams and 60,000 litres capacity rainwater tanks with 13 taps dotted around the garden.
Extras include split system ACs, a wood fire, smart-technology Eufy doorbell and security system.
Also available is an additional Agricultural Grazing Licence on 2.7 acres adjacent to the property.
This rural lifestyle property enjoys easy access to a range of coastal towns on the Bellarine Peninsula – Queenscliff is just five minutes away, Ocean Grove is 10 minutes, and it takes only 25 minutes to reach Geelong’s CBD – yet you will feel a world away.
