Coragulac is a great name – you just want to say it out loud again and again, because of the way it rolls off your tongue.
In the same way, the opportunity to move into a beautiful, recently renovated four bed room home with a ready made horticulture hot house on your property is a proposition that will keep revolving in your head for some time.
Just a quarter of an hour out of the rapidly growing centre of Colac, on tranquil plans with sweeping views to the ancient volcanic crater of Red Rock, the home at 85 Dorans Road offers the opportunity for an instant family lifestyle, at less than the cost of the average Melbourne home.
There’s a great house, 2000 square metres of hot house, just over 2 hectares of land and even a rustic tree swing. As they say in hydroponics, there’s a complete new life package ready to go, just add water. Fortunately that is easy too, with an onsite bore providing a whopping 13,000 litres per hour.
Families with a green thumb who like the idea of creating a new family haven surrounded by tranquil farms can snap up the farm for $589,000.
Nearby, Colac is undergoing an economic boom, with strong growth of industries including one of Australia’s favourite summer brands, Bulla Family Dairy; the Australian Lamb Company; AKD softwoods and other local companies all eyeing growth opportunities.
Located on a popular highway route busy with tourists travelling to and from the Great Ocean Road, the city of just over 12,000 people also has a growing hospitality and tourism industry.
Situated on the serene Lake Colac, the area is surrounded by Volcanic plains, connected to excellent public transport links and situated just two hours south west of Melbourne.
Ancient volcanic activity has given the Colac area with an abundance of natural attractions. The area is a popular destination for twitchers, attracting a huge range of birdlife, with a range of protected wetlands nearby.
Close to Colac there are a range of lakes, including Lake Corangamite, Australia’s largest lake with permanent water. Three times as salty as the ocean, Corangamite attracts a range of birdlife and has pink salt crystals forming at its edge as its’ mineralised waters evaporate.
Colac residents can access Geelong, Warrnambool or the famed beaches of the Great Ocean Road within an hours’ drive, providing an enviable lifestyle.
