Inner-city buyers are increasingly being drawn to the Yarra Ranges thanks to a thriving food and beverage experience and a more relaxed lifestyle.

Local agents say they’re “flat out” during the spring selling season, with properties in full bloom as the days become longer.

We’ve taken a look at some of the best properties on the market in the region.

19 Cornelius Cres, Healesville

RT Edgar Yarra Ranges agent Eliza Houghton said she loved the “craftsman style” at the 5.67ha property at 19 Cornelius Cres, on the market for $1.2-$1.3 million.

Mountain and Chum Creek valley views from the mud-brick home were favourites for the vendors, who are downsizing closer to family.

Ms Houghton said Healesville properties were highly sought as weekenders or tree-change options for Melbourne buyers.

“We often find eastern suburb buyers moving out our way, just because it’s starting to get very busy and with smaller blocks closer to town,” she said.

“Healesville in particular in the last 15 years has started to flourish.”

510 Healesville-Yarra Glen Road, Tarrawarra

A four-bedroom house and 4ha winery at “Tarra Lane” has price expectations of $2.75-$3 million.

An elegant open-plan space with soaring ceilings is divided by a brilliant two-sided fireplace at the property.

Ms Houghton said spring was always busy in the Yarra Valley.

4 Plowman St, Olinda

Bell Real Estate Olinda agent Corinne Sukroo said inner-city buyers were wooed by the peacefulness of properties like 4 Plowman St, valued at $1-$1.1 million.

“They’re tired of high rise and development in the city and they want a calmer lifestyle, the homes on offer for sale up here have room and it’s a nicer environment in the community,” she said.

Ms Sukroo said she was “flat out” with new listings at the moment.

The Olinda property is on the market for the first time in 20 years.

60 Longs Road, Yellingbo

This Yellingbo four-bedroom property on 20.3ha comes with a price range of $1.4-$1.475 million.

Known as “Banyon Park”, the property features 11 paddocks, a dam and barn-style shedding with stables.

A wraparound balcony encircles the stylish house, which still retains its rustic charm.
