Modern Homestead. Premium Land. 4 Minutes from Fish Creek Township
‘Worfolks’ nestled in the fertile foothills of the Hoddle range is an exceptional modern homestead surrounded by 176 acres of premium grazing land on 2 titles just 4 minutes from fabulous Fish creek township.
The original 1920s farmhouse has been totally remodelled, retaining its distinctive Art Deco features, with the new high specification modern homestead thoughtfully built around it.
The result is a sparkling residence that optimizes the exceptional outlook and location while staying true to its purpose as a family home and working farmhouse.
A visit to the house starts as you step past the attractive and highly productive kitchen garden, up the steps to the broad front veranda and into the gleaming modern kitchen with sweeping paddock and hill views.
Wide stone benches, European appliances, and a generous butler’s pantry provide the perfect setting to process the high quality fresh food produced by the farm which is virtually self-sufficient.
The vendors love to entertain family and friends and they have designed the property to offer several entertaining options.
A more formal venue in the dining room and sitting room with its snug Nectre wood heater or a more casual option in the large informal alfrecso dining and lounge area with a large Ultimate Spectre wood heater and spectacular views of the Hoddle range.
The family wing has 3 large bedrooms one with a walk in robe and ensuite bathroom and all with charming farm and paddock outlooks. A central bathroom and homestead office with NBN internet also sit at this end of the property.
The Masters wing starts just beyond the kitchen with a super comfortable TV room and yet another large Nectre wood heater.
The super king sized master bedroom has the same spectacular views of the mountain seen from the TV room, a large walk-in robe, massive ensuite with stand-alone bath and separate toilet.
Step downstairs from the TV room to the functional utility area, with its central cellar and wine room.
The all-weather wet room with a dedicated farm laundry area and easy access toilet and shower keep farm gear in control and the house clean and tidy.
The house laundry, with room for 2 house washing machines, freezer room and the under house, remote access 2 car garage complete the practical areas.
The owners are perfectionists, and this can be seen everywhere at ‘Worfolks ‘ from the quality of the build, to the cosy underfloor heating in tiled areas, 100% wool carpets to the double glazed powder coated windows.
Outside, thoughtful attention to detail persists.
A cosy firepit with views of the hills and paddocks is set up close the house.
The sustainable dam watered, kitchen garden, includes vegetable and fruit beds, an extensive orchard, with fruit trees and olives and even a small vineyard.
Happy chooks feast on garden and kitchen scraps in a large secure chicken run beside the sheds.
2 Large sheds offering round bale hay and machinery storage and a 2 bay lockable workshop and other undercover cattle and sheep yards and handling facilities and shearing station.
Regular weed and fertiliser programs ensure the land is well maintained. Fences and electric fences are in good condition and have been maintained and upgraded as required.
8 dams, and pressure fed water troughs ensure stock have plenty of water.
In addition, the sheds host 2 x 5kw Solar power inverters, and the house has a solar hot water system and a 45,000 litre rainwater tank provides house water.
Worfolks is positioned just 4 minutes to the cafes, school and pub at Fish Creek and adjacent to the famous Southern Rail Trial and Hoddle mountain track. 14 minutes to the shops and medical facilities at Foster, 21 minutes to the beach at Sandy Point and only 2 hours and 34 minutes from central Melbourne.
