Unique Country Property - Everything you could possibly want!With Mount Wombat as the backdrop this beautiful 10.5acre property is located 2hrs from Melbourne and equally close (20kms) to the Hume FWY(Euroa) and Maroondah HWY(Merton). It is central to Seymour, Mansfield, Benalla and Shepparton. The property is divided up into 3 paddocks and the house block with excellent fencing.
The fully renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom weatherboard house is fully insulated (ceiling, walls and floor), surrounded by a large verandah with a covered alfresco deck area. Adjoining the deck is a separate theatre room/study and an outside toilet. Floors are polished timber with carpeted bedrooms. Heating and cooling are by split systems (living area, games room and theatre room/study) combustion heater in lounge, Nobo wall panel heaters in bedrooms and bathrooms and ceiling fans in bedrooms. The house surrounds can only be described as parklike.
Step off the deck and enter the amazing landscaped entertainment area comprising large in ground pool and games room. This area has to be seen to be believed. The 13.5m pool is salt chlorinated, solar heated and virtually maintenance free thanks to the automated pop up in floor cleaning system. Step up onto the pool deck which leads through the bi fold doors into the games room. This 12m x 6m fully insulated room with exposed truss ceiling, polished concrete floor and rustic theme has a great bar area, 9’ slate pool table, 3 high king single bunks, inbuilt sound system, TV and internet access and all the room you will ever need for entertaining or housing guests. The pergola covered BBQ area is attached to this via the side entrance.
Across the lawn approx. 40m from the house is a magnificent dam surrounded by gums, willows and bull rushes containing all manner of wildlife, aquatic and otherwise. There is a deck over the water from which you can fish for the mature Yellow Belly, Silver Perch and Bass or just relax and enjoy the environment. Or for the young at heart the plunge off the giant granite rock can be more invigorating.
There is a huge amount of shedding on the property in two areas. The first shed complex comprises a very large open area, 10 stables and two areas currently used for storage and a gym. The other shed also has a 5kw back to grid solar system mounted to it’s roof with a generous rebate tariff of 66c per kwh. There is a good set of stock yards and ramp with a new cattle crush and a separate enclosed wash bay for horses/bikes/etc.
The property has a 36m bore supplying an endless amount of pure crystal drinking water at 2litres per second. This is connected to all outside taps, troughs and is also linked to the water tanks. There are three interconnected rainwater tanks that hold approx. 16,000litres plus another of approx. 12,000litres which is purely bore fed. This property has bitumen road frontage with mail, rubbish collection and school bus to the front gate.
The wildlife in this area is incredible, you name it and it is here for your enjoyment. Local attractions such as Gooram Falls, Polly McQuinns Weir and the Strathbogie township are all close. Fantastic neighbours top off this ideal location. Inspection is highly recommended.
