Relax in your own unique light filled, very comfortable, modern four bedroom home. Stay at home and unwind on five peaceful acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Only 26kms to CBD... ten minutes to Melbourne Airport.
When visiting Melbourne, for business or pleasure, enjoy all that the city and surrounds have to offer, then come home to Silky Oaks, your own private retreat. Silky Oaks has much to offer all year round. In winter, relax in front of the fire in the spacious lounge or have your coffee on the sunny garden deck. Snuggle up with a book in the cosy study or catch up with your email correspondence. Perhaps the small, sunny yoga/meditation room may be what you need after seeing the sights or to unwind after those business engagements.
In Spring, enjoy the many blossoms of flowers and fruit. In Summer, enjoy the fruit! Every season has something different to experience in the native garden. Take time to sit and unwind on our rustic benches and observe the variety of birdlife that have made the native and indigenous garden that is Silky Oaks their home.
We are next door to the Melbourne centre of the Tibetan Buddhist Society with its beautiful traditional temple and ten acres of magnificent gardens.
