Commuting distance to Geelong (a 50 minute drive away) and less than two hours to Melbourne, make this property an ideal weekend escape or a permanent tree change. Since 1982 this property has been developed into the ideal rural lifestyle that it now is. Horse enthusiasts will love the indoor arena as well as the purpose built wash yard, outdoor arena and lunging yard. This property has been the breeding ground for many horses in the past and has hosted events, training rides and with stunning riding trails nearby, this may be the place to call home for many more horses in the future. The 4.05 hectares features a dam, well fenced paddocks, wood shed, 80ft x 30ft shed with stables and room for the caravan as well as the old dairy providing storage and additional stables. Take a walk through the garden gate and you will find 'The Shack' where you can enjoy a drink around the campfire or sit inside and watch some TV in your very own retreat.
The main house consists of three bedrooms, one bathroom, two living areas and an office/sitting room. Three wood heaters provide warmth and ambience and the front verandah is the ideal place to sit back, relax and enjoy the wide open space of the country setting. The carport doubles as an alfresco entertaining area and the adjoining second living area is open plan with the kitchen and dining area. The pool with decking and adjoining grassed area will please the children and adults alike, many days and nights throughout the warmer months can be spent enjoying the fresh air in the privacy of your own yard. Sprawling cottage garden beds can be watered by the 10,000 gallons of tank water. We invite you to enjoy the quieter life whether it be on the weekends, as a tree change or permanent hobby farm. Rear calves, ride the motorbike or appreciate the fruits of your labour from the orchard (pear, apple, nectarine, nashi and plum trees) and the vegie patch.
