A large property of up to 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms and everything of the highest standard, and was completely upgraded in 2015.

Set at the end of a quiet court – out of the hustle & bustle and yet still close enough to town that you can park your car and just walk everywhere.

An easy 6 minute flat walk to town, 1 minute walk to a huge park at the end of the street, 2 minutes walk to the Ovens River and its miles of car free Riverside walks.

The 92 klms of sealed Rail Trail Bike trail starts 2 blocks from your front door.
