Walkerville: Striking Coastal Homestead with Private Beach Access

The luxury mansion at 460 Bear Gully Road, Walkerville is now for sale.

Situated on 4.75 acres in Walkerville, near one of the state’s southernmost points, this rural oasis was a dream come true for the sellers when they purchased the property in 2017.

“It had everything, beautiful natural surroundings, direct access to the beach, incredible views over Wilsons Promontory National Park across Waratah Bay and great access
“To the South Gippsland food and wine trail,” says the salesman.

“When it came out I said, ‘Let’s make this dream come true.’”

One of the biggest advantages is the highly sought after location, with private access to Cape Liptrap Coastal Park and Maitland Beach.

The seller, who uses the property as a holiday home and for rentals, is now selling 460 Bear Gully Rd. with hopes of a sale price of $2.6 million.

The house is located close to the beach.

Wooden beams can be found throughout the building.

The kitchen leads to the second floor via a spiral staircase.

“The area is becoming increasingly popular, with the beautiful Walkerville South Beach on the doorstep and fantastic beaches at Waratah Bay, Sandy Point and of course Wilson’s Prom.

“The area is renowned for its natural beauty and in recent years the Food and Wine trail has become exciting; our favourite for all the family. Gurneys is great for adults and children,” says the seller.

The property, a recently renovated farmhouse, has high-quality facilities and offers versatile living and/or short-term rental options.

“We renovated the kitchen and bathrooms and replaced the roof and skylights, giving the downstairs bedrooms the opportunity to sleep under the stars,” the seller said.

It feels like you are eating in the middle of nature.

“The renovations have made the house so easy to live in, with bluestone benches, brushed brass fixtures and South American slate floors with underfloor heating.”

The addition of a utility room provides functionality for the winter months and is used as a cleaning area to support the rental.

Flexible living spaces offer a variety of options for entertainment and relaxation.

“We often gather around the kitchen island bench to prepare meals. The second loft-style living space upstairs gives the home real flexibility. While the main living space downstairs benefits from the cast iron Cheminees Philippe open/closed fireplace,” says the seller.

The seven-bedroom house is spread over two floors and is built with beautiful wood and materials such as clay brick and slate, which is a testament to craftsmanship.

“Adobe walls, exposed beams and rammed earth floors instantly create a comfortable home: warm in winter, cool in summer and soft underfoot,” the seller says.

“The dining area, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, makes it easy to entertain large groups.”
