Tree Change Dreaming
Have you dreamt of country living surrounded by trees and lush rolling South Gippsland hills?
This comfortable small farm (on 40.8 acres) offers the perfect tree change location within easy reach of Waratah Bay and Wilsons Prom. All the hard work has been done, so you can sit back and enjoy the lifestyle, clean air and stunning views.
Sitting above the head waters of Fish Creek and between the townships of Foster, Fish Creek and Meeniyan, this much loved home is full of rural character and sits in extensive cottage style gardens with mature native trees and stunning hill views.
As you enter the front door and step into the large entry hall your struck by the sense of space and the high ceilings.
The light, bright study which sits to the left of the hall, has a big window overlooking the picturesque garden.
The main open plan living area includes a foodie friendly modern kitchen with plenty of storage, European appliances, a feature recycled timber bench and family meals area, plus a more formal dining area with valley views, a large slow combustion stove and new Daiken Inverter split system.
From the open plan meals you step down to a roomy lounge with stunning views over the valley and the large alfresco deck and entertaining area.
The extraordinary master bedroom with recently refurbished ensuite and wrap round corner windows overlooks the land on 2 sides, the stunning views would make staying in bed to enjoy them very, very tempting.
The two light and airy family bedrooms with garden outlooks, share a large family bathroom and second toilet in excellent original condition.
Outside, the property has so many benefits it’s hard to know where to start.
In the garden, there is a second paved entertainment and dining area. A swing with a wide valley view, a lily pond set in landscaped gardens.
Those looking for a self-sufficient lifestyle with enjoy the three large raised veggie beds netted against furry and feathered marauders with a veggie grow tunnel. New 2.5 x 4m greenhouse on a concrete slab.
A mature and well maintained, house orchard with apples, peaches, apricot, cherry, plum and fig trees and assorted citrus trees. Plus a fully fenced chook shed. All watered from 75,000L rainwater tanks fed from the house shed roof.
The family members who want a big shed, will love the over engineered 14m x 9m three bay house shed with a concrete floor, power and 3 x 3 meter high roller doors, two of which are remote opening. It even has a in-shed wood stove to keep the workers warm in winter. While a 5kw solar system on the roof reduces household bills.
The attention to detail, extends out to the farm infrastructure, which has been set up to run sheep close to the house and cattle in the more distant paddocks with mains electric power to all farm fencing.
Modern stock yards with a vet crush and loading ramp sit close to the house. All weather laneways provide access to all areas. Water is no issue with 3 dams, 2 of which are spring fed.
While a 33,000L gravity feed stock tank which collects water from the 9m x 5m Hay/Machinery shed, ensures full troughs in those paddocks without dam access.
The final crowning glory of this unique small farm is a fully irrigated 250 tree highly productive hazelnut grove.
