Endless Opportunities on a Rare Freehold Island Sanctuary
Elizabeth Island, a hidden gem on 26.1 hectares (65 acres approx.) presents a rare opportunity to own a secluded private island sanctuary, business venture, or the best of both worlds. Located in Western Port Bay, southeast of Melbourne, tucked between Phillip Island and French Island.
Custom-designed for remote seaside living. The main residence embraces sweeping northerly views over the golden cliffs of French Island National Park. On the west coast, you can see out to Phillip Island and Bass Strait. Sea views from every window, a changing tidal outlook, and an all-around veranda dotted with hammocks and outdoor furniture, combine to create the perfect space for relaxed engagement with the marine surrounds.
The newly built two-bedroom two-bathroom villa with breathtaking views over Elizabeth Bluff, and all modern facilities, is privately situated 200m approx. from the main home. It offers capacity for income or a place for family and friends to stay, maintaining seclusion for each residence.
The private jetty makes for easy access to the water, whether fishing, swimming or boating. Boat across to San Remo on the mainland or Rhyll on Phillip Island for some shopping or lunch or take a bike ride to explore a little further, before returning to the peace of Elizabeth Island. For added convenience, the French Island Barge offers vehicle access from Corinella to Elizabeth Island. Newhaven has a nearby airport for helicopter access.
There is plenty of space for landscaping and farming activities such as vineyards or olive groves. Birdlife thrives, especially around the northern point sanctuary. Seals, dolphins and even the odd whale have been spotted off its southern shores. The coastal vegetation is marked by sporadic bursts of white, pink, purple, or yellow floral. Inland, native grasses and trees thrive alongside large pines.
Elizabeth Island is on a freehold title of 26.1 hectares (65 acres approx.) and zoned Rural Activity Zone (Tourism & Agriculture) under the French Island and Sandstone Island planning scheme. No council rates or land tax, the only fixed outgoings are an annual fee for the jetty license and a bushfire levy.
