Exemplary 'Gowrie Park' Circa 1900

The original dwelling is a combination of Victorian/Edwardian architecture and dates back to the late 1800s yet, 3070 Princes Highway has seen the most impressive renovation in the past 4 years. Immaculately presented and exceptionally finished, the offering of a 10 acre farmlet within 10 minutes of Camperdown and 20 minutes of Colac is every hobby farmer's dream.

There is not a sqm that hasn't received some form of investment. The time, love and incredible workmanship has resulted in each room of the house being restored and renovated with respect to the heritage and building materials originally used.

As soon as you step inside, the home is captivating and possesses character features of years gone by. The 12ft ceilings create open space and each room has a story to tell, boasting their own characteristics from fireplaces, picture railings, pine lining boards, leadlight windows, chandeliers and window coverings. This four-bedroom family home offers gorgeous places to sit and enjoy a book, entertain and follow the winter sun on the deck, in the enclosed porch or any one of the rooms. The opulent features are unmistakable, the mantle pieces, marble benchtops, cornices and architraves ooze character.

Step outside into the enchanting garden. Take a walk through the vegetable garden and hot house, the garden beds and fruit trees are kept hydrated via the watering system. Bore water, two tanks holding 25,000 litres and solar panels mean weekly household running costs are kept to a minimum and water isn't a problem.
Cast an eye over the dry stone walls to the paddocks, they have been cleared and just a few piles of rocks remain allowing easy vehicle and pedestrian access to all areas. Perhaps you'd like to run a small head of Dexter cows like the current owners are. Included in the sale are the cattle yards and race.
