16.29ha (40.25 acres). Spectacular and diverse property comprising Bavarian inspired large family home, ex worker’s quarters and huge shedding. Beautiful valley with mature gardens, established cherry orchard, dams, bore, water licence and more.
LAND: 16.29ha (40.25 acres). This magnificent setting provides lifestyle choices ranging from a superb recreational living to mixed farming at a chosen level. Included in the property is a fertile valley where the home surrounds are adorned by some massive and majestic, exotic trees that put on a sensational display of seasonal colour and provide beautiful shade canopies in the warmer months. The domestic fruit orchard and vegetable gardens will supply plenty of fresh produce and aid the self sufficiency of the property. Water is plentiful, with a pair of dams and a good bore giving the property all the water it needs, including a 22 mega litre water licence.
The fertile countryside of the district is known for its production of high quality fruits including apples, pears, grapes and cherries; there are 14 varieties of cherries on this property covering approximately 7.5 acres with over 2000 trees. For those with an interest in cherry production, there is scope for further establishment with the generous amount of water and space available. Being 40 acres in size, there is room for more activities, be it grazing stock or for loved family pets. The views from varying points on the property are superb, whether it be from the home, overlooking your own valley or, from the high point on the land, the far reaching views to the ocean.
RESIDENCE: Only 9 years of age, this Bavarian influenced styled home is incredibly well constructed and provides quality living to accommodate a large family. Built across two levels, the lower level of the home includes the fine Blackwood timber kitchen with its marble look bench tops, built-in electric oven, deep cupboards and wide breakfast bar. Tasmanian oak floors sit below the 8’6” ceiling and flow seamlessly to the lounge room where the slow combustion wood heater and split system airconditioner is located. The first of the four bedrooms is located on this level and features an ensuite bathroom and a large built-in robe. The luxurious main bathroom, with its deep corner spa and very large shower alcove, is located up the Cyprus pine staircase, where two of the three bedrooms gain access to the balcony from which the views over the property are superb. There is certainly no shortage of storage with the attic spaces providing almost rooms within themselves. A designated study / office along with the laundry and 3rd toilet is back down the stairs of this very attractive home which gains the benefit of the 3kw solar unit. Forming part of the home is a brick and lined double carport and, with the simplest of conversions, this could very easily become a large family room. A pergola fronting the home is covered by a stunning wisteria and complements the home and surrounds just perfectly.
IMPROVEMENTS: There are many substantial structures on this property commencing with the very useful x-shearer’s quarters. Shedding is also bountiful with the main complex covering approximately 500m2 in area. Best described in 3 sections, the first is a 40’ x 30’ area with extremely high clearance, concrete floor, power and internal room. The next section is a 60’ x 30’ space incorporating the shearing shed with a 60’ x 40’ implement shed. All this is serviced by its own toilet and can provide a multitude of uses. 13000 gallons of water is stored for the home and a pair of 6000 gallon poly tanks store ground water which is, in turn, supplied to the cherries and gardens and supports the home supply.
