Badgers Keep Circa 1854
The name of this property evokes the images of Wind in the Willows, romantic, rambling gardens, endless paths leading to new discoveries. It is a place of dreams, where you can nestle into a large chair and look to the clear sky and breathe.
Bagders Keep is a delightful property of around 43 Acres, with large mature trees and established gardens and hedges. There are 5 large paddocks with ample tree shelter, 2 dams, small yards, old wind mills, a chook shed and a tennis court. The land is productive for hay, or a flock of sheep or cattle, with plenty of space for horses, or a menagerie of animals.
There is a large hay/machinery shed, a shearing shed, a tack room with 2 stables, a three car garage with a fabulous workshop and a large functioning cool room for all the produce from the irrigated vegetable garden with its own glass house and arch way of prolific flowering crepuscule roses. Two bores supply water to the house, gardens and vegetable garden.
The main home has been updated and reflects the relaxed life desired in country living. The separate cottage has a retreat , bedroom and bathroom provide great potential for B&B, or family/teenagers. The outdoor entertaining area is surrounded in sumptuous gardens, lilacs, apple trees, wisteria, and the scent of blossoms permeates on the warm evenings. The guest room is part of the old original homestead, and backs onto the carriage shed used for the once used as a Cobb & Co coach stop.
Located just 5km from Lancefield township and 8.5km to Romsey, this is a truly unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the reality of the richness of country life.
