Set well off the road, at the end of a meandering driveway and perched at the highest point of the property overlooking 136 acres established pastures, Kennedy's Creek (seasonal flow) and 100 year old gum trees, this cosy 10 year old home boasts the perfect opportunity to get back to grass roots and enjoy the lifestyle and privacy this property has to offer. Work from home and connect to the world with NBN availability or establish your own cottage industry business and extend on the thriving Twelve Apostle Gourmet Food Trail.
Wake up each morning to complete silence only broken by the calls of Kookaburras and Corellas and watch the mist lift in the valley as the sun rises over the Otways National Park in the distance. If you're lucky, you may even spot the odd kangaroo or deer grazing in the bottom paddock.
This meticulously maintained home offers 3 generous bedrooms (master with full ensuite and walk-in robes) and with mounted space heaters, plus office/study. Spacious kitchen with large island bench and dining area overlooking the dam, family living space with wood burning fire plus reverse cycle air con, family bathroom and outdoor entertaining space with spectacular views.
Excellent 40'x90' Colorbond machinery/work shed with mains power plus solar panels, concrete floor, two sliding access doors, mezzanine storage level and shower & toilet facilities. Plus additional Colorbond open machinery/wood shed.
The home, sheds and manicured gardens are all enclosed & protected from the working acreage by an electric fence. The working acreage currently yields approx. $22,000 pa as an out-paddock to a neighbouring property.
With the average rainfall in Cooriemungle over 750mm per annum (Melbourne average 530mm pa) the dam has consistent water source with reticulation to troughs in the 5 securely fenced paddocks that also boast pockets of native shelter for wildlife and stock alike. The high average also ensures the 100,000 litre rainwater tank (pressurized to the house) is consistently supplied.
This property has been a labour of love for the current owners who have established this property to what it is from the ground up. This is not your average lifestyle/farming property and an inspection is a must.
