This amazing lifestyle property is truly something out of the ordinary and will be very attractive to those seeking a prime location offering peace, privacy, and tranquillity. 'Moondani' is an Aboriginal word for 'embrace', which is exactly what the owners have done; they have embraced beautiful native bushland surrounds, preserving this rarity through a 'Trust For Nature' covenant. The bush is full of magnificent gums, wattles, lower storey flowering natives and orchids. It attracts a huge variety of birds and native marsupials. It's even the first port of call food stop for Swift Parrots on their migration from Tassie! On approximately 40 acres (plus government road lease), arrive at the gateway then meander along the track through the beautiful trees. Following rain, the air is exquisite.
Arriving at the striking, 4 bedroom / 3 bathroom architecturally designed house is exciting. It's like an oasis in the middle of bushland, the home set on a northerly orientation amongst an expanse of lawns. Stepping inside, you know you're in for something special. First impressions are of distinctive craftsmanship. Rich slate flooring with feature tiling, a mixture of painted double brick walls, strong wood work and leadlight feature windows and doors combine to give outstanding appeal and character. A well equipped kitchen is central in the open space living plan. There's both electrical stove and a combustion stove cooking (an alternative hot water heating option) and a large walk-through pantry which leads through to a sizable store room. Adjoining the breakfast bar is a spacious dining and open lounge area, complete with solid fuel heater. Expanses of windows here and in most rooms take advantage of restful garden/bushland views. Coming off one end of the living room is a walk-through study or business centre with NBN connection. Further on is a stylish two storey retreat, which has a separate entrance, sitting room downstairs, bathroom, and enormous bedroom upstairs. An upstairs balcony is the place to enjoy floodlit surroundings of an evening. This wing lends itself to B & B / additional visitor accommodation/teenager retreat or home based business prospects. Extra storage cupboards are found throughout the whole home while bedrooms have BIR's. The main suite includes BIRs, walk-in-robe and en suite. Double glazed windows and passive design and orientation provide constant ambient inside temperatures.
Moving outdoors, surprises and features are many! Several paved areas for outdoor living and entertaining can be found, with wonderful options for gourmet cooking including bricked fire - pit, pizza oven and separate roasting oven. Shedding and storage is fantastic:
- Double carport for parking - (internal access to home)
- Charming separate studio (15amp power, mosaic and major leadlight features)
- Below ground concrete wine and storage cellar
- 9m X 7m shed
- Workshop with upstairs cubby, (15amp power/solar panels)

As well as the terrific tank water supply for the house, there are further tanks providing additional water for veggie gardens. There's also a beautiful large wetland and dam area. An expansive open area with ground sprinkler system provides potential for someone to start up a nursery. A tennis court and gazebo are just two of the many extras on offer.
Created and under the same ownership for nearly 40 years, this property is an absolute credit to the owners. They have had the ability to create a very special property that is in harmony with the existing environment. It is an opportunity for lucky purchasers to continue to enjoy this unique, wonderful lifestyle with the benefits of town services close by; a short walk to Koonwarra's, central to both Leongatha and Meeniyan. Central too, to South Gippsland's wonderful beaches.With properties of this nature seldom coming onto the market, inspection is highly recommended.
