6 HA – Views – No neighbours

Back in the 1950s, when homes were built to last, time was taken to construct things well. This solid brick residence is no exception. It will pique the interest of those who are seeking a project in need of a modern makeover. Bordered by a prime parcel of land, there is a stunning view all around. No neighbours, quality bore water, 3 phase & good sheds complete an interesting package.

Northern light streams into a cheery country kitchen which adjoins a dining nook cradled by pretty views. This is the spot to nestle down, cuppa in hand. Cosy-up to your loved one in the lounge that enjoys huge picture windows or take any family event into the big living room. Warmed by a slow combustion heater, it will fit everyone in on a chilly winters day. The master bedroom has a classic 70's ensuite and built in's whilst the main bathroom is still in its original condition. All remaining rooms (bed 2, 3 laundry etc) are ready for some TLC. 

Horse lovers might view the old dairy as the perfect spot for your new stables. Constructed of besser brick it sits on the high ground away from the home. With some work, it might also make an amazing studio given its peaceful location. Shedding is plentiful here with 2 separate garages, a modest workshop plus a double caravan/carport at the rear of the house. 

Small acreage and quality useable land don't often come in the same package – alas you will find both here coupled with a fantastic bore water supply. Fenced into 2 paddocks this is superb horse and cattle country with lush pastures and quality soil. Your fur babies will thank you if you do decide this might be their new patch.

Sweeping lawns frame the home which is surrounded by an attractive array of mature deciduous trees providing plenty of dappled shade in the warmer months. A few mature fruit trees include apples, walnut and plums. 

Good bones await those of you with a touch of grit and some vision. Time invested here will reward you for many years to come. It's a move you will not regret.
