A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire 250 acres of prime pasture land with a working farm and family home minutes from Berry with unrealised potential.
The solar passive architecturally designed addition to an original farm house has five bedrooms and a floor plan that blends seamlessly with the old homestead. North facing glass sliding doors fully open onto timber decks from the modern kitchen featuring Miele appliances and Ceasar stone bench tops.
Designed with two separate wings for the extended family making it a home simple to maintain when only living in the modern wing. A wet edge pool ties in the deck that links the two living areas and a large lounge/games room with a fireplace.
It is hard to create this kind of ambiance in modern homes, the history and adaption of the original farm cottage gives authenticity to the house on a site selected for its aspect, coastal sea breeze and mountain vista.
The magnificent uninterrupted sunset and sunrise from the horizon of the ocean to the mountains, facing magnetic north, encourages you to rise early and embrace the day! Complete privacy so close to town!
A north-east fall, with 10 paddocks, the farm is segmented with a laneway facilitates easy movement of cattle to the prattley steel cattle yards, machinery and storage sheds.
The property has had only 2 owners in 70 years. Original gardens added to, with landscaping that enhances the established trees, hedged "rooms" and low maintenance plantings. At any time of the year a sun drenched or sheltered nook in the garden can be found.
As the property was originally a dairy, there is an abundance of stored water with 2x100,000 litre tanks along with nine spring fed dams and concrete cattle troughs with access to permanent water.
A wildlife corridor of tree plantings has been established with an environmentally rated wetland that is a haven for migrating birds and an abundance of wildlife, a sanctuary that has been fenced to preserve this unique resource.
The pastures are fertilised annually and can easily run 50 breeders with calves. The alluvial fertile soils support a pasture of clover, kikuyu and rye. The potential to increase productivity is waiting or can be easily managed as is.
Few properties offer the privacy this setting has, you cannot hear or see other homes from the house site, it is a hidden oasis. The proximity to town, the beach, and the opportunity to capitalise for subdivision of a 150 acre parcel has already been approved.
