THE BEST INVESTMENT PROPERTY IN PARK ORCHARDS,that caters for growth areas and financial gain!7 May at 19:12 from atlas
WELCOME TO PARK ORCHARDS ,and the best property with all round growth potential for a family or a tradie.
Our property is for sale at a premium price because we believe it is not the run of the mill property that you would buy to demolish the existing status quo ;too many properties in Park Orchards have been demolished by people who don't realise the Historical value of this area,and the people who made it this way.
We have continued the tradition started by the previous owners;we have not demolished ,removed or cutdown.
We have added a myriad of plants and features that will take many years and much money to replace .Therefore our response to those potential buyer who wish to "beat us down in price",please don't bother as your attitude indicates to us that you do not appreciate the real values in this property.
The same applies to the agency selling our home;the customer is always right,and YOUR OUR REPRESENTATIVE ,SO PLEASE ACT IN OUR BEST INTERESTS .
This unique property is located on Milne Road,nestled behind and in a forest of ornamental trees,privacy and noise abatement is assured.The rambling garden is a childrens paradise,birds and wildlife such as ringtale and brushy tail possums abound,working in conjuction with insects to control pests and other bugs to empower an eco friendl;y enviroment.
In the garden is a big pond,with yabbies and frogs,numerous waterbirds from wild ducks to brolgas,fly in on their way to migrate far a field.Numeous opportunities exist for kids to mess around with their mates and buddies to clean up,and create an adventure playground to further their outdoor skills.
Numerous ornamental trees abound,and these offer the opportunity to build tree huts and cubbies;as well as numerous gardening opportunities in the very fertile and rich garden soils embellished by years of market gardening by the original owners of the original 15 acre property.
The original home is in mint condition out side,its is brick veneer with a terracotta tile roof;most of the original hand made spouting still exists;its over 60 years old,inside the timber floors are original baltic pine ,and in what we refer to as the TERRAZO ROOM,this very large room has a beautiful terrazo floor handcrafted for Frank and Carmal Italiano as a wedding present in the late 1940's.
The original 4 car garage and workshop still stand,but is in need of restoration.This original building was used to service trucks and manufracture sheet metal and castings;there is a small workshop at the end of the garage,and also a disused chookpen and chook run attached .
At the moment Ringtail and Brushy tail Possums as well as an OWL co exist,in same space as we humans venture.
The only bathroom has another terrazo floor in pristine condition,as has the front porch which has uniqic colours that are admire by all visitors.
There are 3 entry doors however the rear entry is the multi function entry point situated on a plant filled patio.
The garden has hand crafted dry stone walls,and garden seats,together with paths leading to hidden vistas,thru clumps of bamboo.
Many varieties of Citrus trees have been planted over the past 17years to blend with existing plantings,including Kaffa Lime Trees Mandarin ,Cumquat,Lemonade ,Limequat,Grapefruits,Oranges of Valencia,Navel,and many unnamed varieties as well.
In amongst these close plants many varieties of Magnolia Stellata,and Magnolia Soulangeana co exist with Japanese Maples and David Austin Roses which produce rose hips and perfumes so exquisette for use in making jams and marmalades.
Natures own adventure with the life cycle of butterflies starts here;there are 2 Mulberry Trees in the garden,not only providing heaps of leaves as food for Silkworms,but fruit to eat and for jam making.
A huge German Christmas Tree is ready to be decorated for this Christmas as well.Olive trees ,and Bay trees grow in profusion as well.
Large areas of the garden are covered with perrenial flowers,and Clivias cross polinated to produce many different shades of orange,which combined with the Dappled shades produce well lit rooms throughout the garden.
This property is not for the faint hearted;its not for the bulldozer or bobcat driven bigboys who crave to take their frustrations out on our work of art ,a future masterpeice for the discerning gardener and homeowner.
This property has a very strong investment potential,because Park Orchards district ,is earmarked for reticulated sewerage in the medium term;once this happens new zoning schemes may allow this one acre block to be subdivided into 2 blocks of 1/2 acre each;an ideal situation for a new purchaser,who may wish to live in our quaint treasure whilst they build their own dream home on the block with access from Joseph Court.
Inside our home there are 3 very large living areas,a pantry,2 kitchen areas,and a pseudo laundry.The pantry accomadates a family fridge,and a unique style kitchen,provides a different approach to catering for a large family.
Our home does not have an oven or hotplates.
Our home has an external mains pressure hotwater service;and it also has HYDRONIC HEATING to every room which provides a cozy feeling when the weather is cold.
There is only one working wood fired fire place,situated in the terrazo room;however there is provision to make an additional fireplace in the front lounge room.
Evaporated cooling or air conditioning has never been installed in our home because the extensive tree cover surrounding our home allows us to keep the windows open on the hottest of days !
This property is located on just over an acre,its located on the corner of Milne Road and Joseph Court,it has 2 street frontages,and the 271 and 303 bus route pass the door,to take and bring home children and adults who attend school and work.
Park Orchards Primary School,Nth.Ringwood Primary School,Saint Annes Primary School and the Holy Spirit Catholic School at North Ringwood are all within safe and easy walking distance.
Secondary Schools abound Luther College Tintern,Whitefriars,Norwood, Parkwood ,and Yarra Valley Secondary schools run buses to and from outside our home.However for a change of direction our home is close to Donvale Christian College,Rudolf Steiner,Aquinus and Billanook College fit within our enviroment.
Of course inner city schools are accessible via regular bus and train services.
The main stream Croydon Community School also has numerous opportunities for high performing students.
North Ringwood Shopping Centre,Eastland and the nearly completed Costco Store near Ringwood Square offers the complete shopping experience,for all discerning shoppers.
Park Orchards is situated in the MULLUM MULLUM VALLEY,it is also in the gateway of the YARRA VALLEY,and the rural areas North of the Yarra at Warrandyte, Enjoy the chase of the ST.ANDREWS Market,and the Hurstbridge Market,but closer to home is the Park Orchards Farmers Market,held at the Park Orchards Primary School,every 3rd Saturday of each month.
It is proposed that Park Orchards may have Reticulated Sewerage installed in the short to medium term,however Yarra Valley Water is still investigating options to normal sewerage systems.
It should be noted that Reticulated Sewage needs to be installed,because as it stands most of the pollution in the Mullum Mullum Creek ,Andersons Creek,Jumping Creek,and the Yarra River comes from these unsewered areas.
So in summary,this is an ideal property,a good all round property for anyone ,particulary those who have adventurous children and parents who wish to show them the outdoor experience.
