A lush property about to hit the market north of Melbourne has its own internal waterfall and fully-fledged cocktail bar that has serviced a bunch of musicians.
The four-bedroom Wandong house will be listed for a mega $4m-$4.6m sale, led by Wilson Partners director Georgina Smith.
Vendor Kylie Wilson said prior to purchasing the property in 2005, it was constructed by then owner-builder and architect Rod Williamson who included the cascading indoor water feature, plus a fireplace and chimney — all made from hand-picked and sealed stones.

A fully equipped, commercial-grade bar and entertaining area complete with a neon cocktail sign, bar fridges, stools, a billiards table and plenty of wine storage, is the other highlight.
“We’d have a party, it was an annual thing, and a lot of the time it was fancy dress,” Ms Wilson said.
“It was really any excuse for a party, it’s such an entertaining home.”
The couple had various musicians and artists play at these events, including frontman of Australian rock band Chocolate Starfish Adam Thompson, actor and comedian George Kapiniaris, and guitarist Marcus Kurban.
A life-size sarcophagus, or ‘mummy casing’, which Ms Wilson said housed their billiards cues, adds to the home’s quirks.
Plus, the ceilings are made from rare Canadian redwood, now on the endangered list.
“My girls grew up and went to school here, it’s a bit bittersweet,” she added.
“But I think there’s a time you need to move on and I think it’s time for somebody else to enjoy it.”
Ms Smith said there were proposed plans for a 60-townhouse retirement village on the property, pending council approval for neighbouring properties.
“If not, it’s an amazing lifestyle property for a Melbourne buyer wanting a tree-change,” she said.
CoreLogic records show the home last sold for $700,000 in 2005. The listing is expected to hit realestate.com.au in early February.
