Rare iso bunker with pool and a ‘massive view’

A Flinders acreage with a "massive view" and more than 5ha to roam is tipped to tempt Melbourne buyers after lockdown.

The 27 Razorback Rd hobby farm was listed the day Victoria's circuit-breaker shutdown was announced.

But Kay & Burton Flinders' agent Andrew Hines said the "stunning-from-every-angle" home was exactly what city-slickers would look for once they escaped their 10km bubble.

Mr Hines said since the first pandemic shutdowns last year, he had seen those with holiday homes in the area race to leave the big smoke behind.

"It's that idea of not being confined and I actually think people just feel a bit healthier with a coastal location," he said.

'The moment they hear of even a circuit-breaker lockdown, there's no doubt people quickly head to their coastal property because they'd rather be in lockdown on the Mornington Peninsula than in town."

The 27 Razorback Road, Flinders, house has plenty of space to enjoy some fresh air.

And the 5.39ha home at No. 27 should have significant appeal to those with a $12.5 million budget and the desire for a feeling of space no quarantine can impact.

"There's such a big view over Bass Strait and it has been renovated all the way through about five years ago," Mr Hines said. "You can even see the Nobbies and Seal Rock (at Phillip Island). It's a massive view."

Understandably, the house makes the most of its vista, with living spaces from the formal dining room to a sun room and study looking towards the water.

A family room takes in northern sunlight on the other side of the home, with extensive glazing and scope to open five sets of double doors to turn a casual meals space into an outdoor room.

The granite kitchen comes complete with a walk-in pantry and a breakfast bar.

A spiral staircase leads up to a second living room and two of the home's five bedrooms upstairs.

A tennis court and an infinity-edge, solar-heated pool surrounded by landscaped gardens add to the appeal. And a dam with a pier offers space for more rustic pursuits, with scope to add fish, or keep a small amount of cattle as the current owners have over their 11 years at the property.

The offering was also surrounded by some of the region's finest rural homes, Mr Hines said.
