Stately Federation homestead on 52 acres (approx.) of prime farming land
A marvellously restored and stately Federation homestead (circa 1900) overlooking the majority of its fertile and well organised farm of approximately 52 acres. Lightly wooded in the western section and with glorious farmland views elsewhere on the property, this is a private and peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Koalas, parrots and other native wildlife are a regular feature and the sweeping lawns around the home provide a wonderful play space for children and family.
The home features 13 ft ceilings, gas ducted heating, cosy combustion wood fire, evaporative air conditioning, 4 bedrooms, study/cinema room, light-filled and grand open plan kitchen and meals area, 2 wonderfully proportioned living areas, box bay windows , and 2 bathrooms. There is a lovely sense of space and light within the home and its external wrap-round verandas add a further attractive dimension to the home’s generous living spaces. The views from within the home and from its expansive decks are restful and serene.
Featuring a number of magnificent specimen trees throughout the property, there are further features to consider: plentiful stock water including 2 dams and a bore, 2 large rain water storage tanks, seasonal creek, veggie garden, orchard, new and electrified fencing, cattle yards, a menage, stables with 3 loose boxes and tack room, plus a large lined 3 bay garage and workshop (concrete flooring), in addition to other farm shedding. These attributes complement this prime cattle breeding property close to the Bullengarook Pony Club, Gisborne, and within easy commuting distance of Melbourne.
There are 12 fenced paddocks with the external boundaries’ electrified fences being in particularly fine condition. Currently, there are Charolais cattle grazing the property with potential in peak times to run around 100 Charolais using on-site feeders. All water troughs throughout the property are gravity fed from the bore.
This is a stunning and rare property – an ideal offering for families, those with a farming bent, horse owners or anyone seeking a property with character and charm in a special area of Victoria.
