A getaway shack on a rock escarpment in the Tallarook ranges, just over an hour's north from Melbourne up the Hume Freeway, sold at its weekend onsite auction.

The rustic single room timber cabin, set on a 27 hectare holding, fetched $375,000, when offered through agents Pat Rice & Hawkins.

It was bought by a buyer from Toorak.

The cabin sits on a granite tors with a large timber deck.

It has its own portable toilet.

The vendors have harvested rainwater and installed a portable solar system to provide the basic home comforts at the getaway.

The cabin structure was originally built by people with interests in the caravan industry so it is quite sturdy and easy to maintain, the agents advised.

It last sold at $105,000 in 2014.

The vacant block sold at $18,000 in 1992.

The vendors say 470 Ennis Road, Tallarook had been their ‘glamping’ destination offering seclusion, interesting local vegetation, with no shortage of firewood, plus some amazing wildlife.

Buyers were assured the location also provided good internet and television reception.

Set about 400 metres above the surroundings, there are views to the south and west firstly over the township of Broadford in the mid foreground and to the Macedon Ranges in the distance.

The vendors are off to a farm near Hamilton in the western district.

The marketing did not show the interior, with Bart O’Sullivan Pat Rice & Hawkins expecting the auction offers would begin from $200,000.
