Unique Property For Sale in Red Hill VictoriaA Luxury Red Hill Lifestyle with Beautiful Grand Residence, Artists Studio and Bed & Breakfast
About This Rare Opportunity
Situated in the stunning and ever popular Mornington Peninsula Hinterland, the property known affectionately as ‘Dragonfly’ is nestled in the hills with spectacular views of the tranquil Red Hill bushland. All buildings are purpose built and have been designed for the enviable Red Hill lifestyle. The main residence is warm, open and bright and features an open kitchen, living and meals area with an open fireplace. On the upper level there is an exquisite master bedroom with bathroom & parents retreat. While on the lower level there is a further 4 bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms & kids sitting area.
Next we have the Studio. This 2 storey barn styled cottage is a wonderful place to explore your creativity or (as was originally designed) can be easily converted into an additional Bed & Breakfast unit.
At the far end of the property we have the Duplex Bed & Breakfast Cottage. This building has been used for over a decade as an incredibly successful luxury accommodation, leased either as a twin stay to unrelated groups or opened up by way of the interconnected doorway as a full featured cottage suitable for a party of 6.
The flexibility of the Bed & Breakfast business model has suited the owners’ lifestyles, enabling the raising of 4 children, the undertaking of 2 Bachelor degrees, and running another business concurrently. The accommodation known as Dragonfly on the Hill was leased to varying degrees depending on the family commitments at the time. The owners say the most difficult thing about running this business has been saying no to guests when you decide to take time off, because guests are keen to stay all year round!

About the Accommodation
For over a decade, the owners have run an incredibly successful accommodation business using the separate & private double storey cottage positioned away from the main residence with it’s own driveway & cleverly divided into 2 self contained apartments(1 x 1 bedroom and 1 x 2 bedroom). With the inclusion of an interconnected doorway, the apartments have the ability to be leased individually or opened into one larger accommodation. The building, with its ability to accommodate either a single couple, 2 individual couples, a family & couple, a large family or a larger group of up to 3 couples, is arguably the most flexible accommodation available in Red Hill. The building is divided into two stylish suites, the Amethyst & the Garnet.
With consuming full time careers in medicine & architecture, the owner’s decided to operate the Bed & Breakfast business at an occupancy of only around 30%, showing dates as unavailable as required to fit in with their other commitments, not to mention their 4 children. This flexibility not only allows for the realistic possibility of expanding the business given the incredibly high demand for quality accommodation in Red Hill, but also the ability to run at any level to suit any lifestyle.
