Rarely do you inspect such an immaculately presented hobby farm, the cornerstone of which is a light and bright three- or four-bedroom home set in delightfully manicured garden surrounds.
Situated on 59 acres of select, elevated country 4km west of Heywood, the property is ideal for all types of cattle, horses and other boutique agricultural pursuits.
The home features a modern kitchen with attractive rural views opening onto a north facing sunlit dining alcove.
The sitting room, with slow combustion wood heater, extends to an open-plan lounge that in turn opens onto the front deck.
The family bathroom is within easy access of all bedrooms, while a fourth utility room could easily be converted to a bedroom. The large entrance foyer likewise could easily be adapted for other purposes.
A feature of the garden is the established palm trees, which are complemented by native shrubs and roses in landscaped surrounds.
A feature of the farming country is the sandy grey loam well drained soil types over limestone, which promotes year-round grazing and, unlike most of the surrounding country, waterlogging is not a problem in the winter months.
There are seven well fenced paddocks with an established laneway for mustering purposes to the post-and-rail cattle yards, complete with steel crush.
Adjacent the yards is the old dairy, which provides power to the submersible pump on the bore. Stock water from the bore services three paddocks plus there is a large permanent waterhole.
The property is ideal for active retirees, young farmers or families wanting space. It is situated close to all the services Heywood has to offer, with the regional centres of Portland (34km), Hamilton (62km), Warrnambool (95km) and Mt Gambier (95) within easy commuting distance.
