" CRAIG AVON " - 1906.
One of the district’s most gracious and charming historic homesteads, Craig Avon sits high
between Port Phillip and Western Port bays.
The home, built in 1906, has recently been given a Cape Code feel, in harmony with it’s
many original Arts and Crafts features, by Chalmers LeFerve Architects and Interior
With soaring ceilings and majestic proportions, Craig Avon boasts 4 bedrooms, a library
with boudoir grand piano, 3 living areas, a farmhouse kitchen, 2 bathrooms, oak floors
throughout, a glasshouse studio, and extensive decks all around. The outdoor decks areas
include 2 table settings, a built in bath under the trees, and many lounging possibilities.
The house is set on 6 acres, amidst lovely mature olde world spruces, cedars and cyprus,
originally planted by George Alan, the head of Parks and Gardens in Melbourne, who
originally built the house. There are rambling Edwardian gardens, a ‘vicars’ vegetable
patch, small orchard, and a newly planted crop of passion fruits - this is an Enid Blyton
wonderland for children and adults alike.
You can share the property with a bevy of chooks, ducks and turkeys in a beautiful chook
residence, and two adorable miniature donkeys (LouLou and Fitz). The property is also
home to an amazing array of bird life, with kangaroos stopping to share the magnificent
sunsets overlooking Port Phillip bay, nibbling on the lawns.
Located one of the highest points on the peninsula, Craig Avon has views to Port Phillip
Bay, and glimpses of Western Port Bay.
Surrounded by Vineyards and an Apples Orchard, the property is on a quiet country lane,
the perfect place to get away from the city bluster, yet so close to beaches, wineries,
restaurants and all that the Peninsula has to offer.
