After living in Spain for a time, the owners of this unique property have included some of the poetry and romance they experienced there in their home.
Welcome to their "casa humilde" (humble home) on the site of the old Korong dairy where they have renovated the dairy and added a distinctive cottage with genuine Spanish influence.
The cottage is linked to the dairy by a high brick wall with a courtyard in between. Both buildings have typical white render with blue accents and matching casement windows and a replica Spanish red gum door to the courtyard.
The home features two robed bedrooms, main with access to the 2-way bathroom and French doors to the vine-draped courtyard; a central living room and open kitchen/dining with north-facing windows to the rear gardens and more French doors to a covered, sunny alfresco adjoining the courtyard.
Notable cottage extras are high ceilings, split system air con., gas cooking, Tasmanian oak benchtops, quality carpets and floor tiles, claw foot slipper-style freestanding bathtub, corner shower, separate WC, walk-through laundry and roof-mounted satellite dish.
Accessed by wide steps to an elevated landing, the dairy opens to a study/music/sunroom overlooking the courtyard with a wood-fired heater and living area (or 2nd bedroom). A handmade barn door slides back to reveal the living/dining room, mini kitchen (with original chiller converted to walk-in pantry/store), bathroom/WC and main bedroom with French doors to the courtyard. With an attached oversized garage and workshop it makes an inviting teen retreat, guest lodge/Airbnb or studio.
The outdoors is just as adorably different with citrus and olive trees, quaint shedding, chicken coop, 7.5K gallon rainwater tank with pump and permaculture vegetable/herb gardens waiting for Spring.
Set on approx 1,168m², the feel of the entire property is one of casual Mediterranean warmth - hand made with love and vision. Unfortunately, the time has come for the current owners to move on and hand over this Spanish sanctuary to another fortunate family.
