Nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Brisbane Ranges, this serene property presents the ultimate opportunity for a tree change, or simply a balanced country lifestyle for a young or growing family.
Situated an easy 25-minute drive to Geelong, Ballarat and Avalon Airport, and one hour to the Westgate, this 9.8-hectare property features two separate dwellings, mesmerising views and loads of features.
The Thompson Road land is separated into three separate fenced paddocks, with the lower paddock adjoining a spring-fed billabong, and the top paddock is tree lined along the west boundary and includes the property's second dwelling - a completely self-contained three-bedroom home on title as a dependant person's unit.
The middle paddock features the property's main dwelling, a double-story home boasting three bedrooms with built-in robes, and a fourth bedroom/retreat with a large walk-in robe.
The home's living areas and adjoining spacious deck are northeast facing, taking in stunning sunrises across the hills and valley allowing you to soak up the morning sun.
The ground-floor floor and exterior walls are fully insulated. The kitchen, lounge, dining, pantry all feature particle board subfloor overlaid with solid Blackbutt. There is also the added convenience of a dishwasher in the kitchen, security system, extra storage and magnificent views of the countryside from every window.
Other internal features of the 25.35sq (235.5m2) home include; raked feature ceilings and oversized Dorma windows to the first floor bedrooms, split-system heating and cooling in the downstairs lounge and main bedroom, solid timber staircase joining the ground and second floors and, yes, more storage.
It's when you step outside the main residence that you fully understand what a unique buying opportunity this property is. Surrounded by undulating hills and gum trees, the pristine outlook will add peace to your lifestyle and is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you fire up the barbi. Imagine sitting back on your 37m2 deck entertaining family and friends with a cold beer or glass of wine. It doesn't get any better than that!
With space for animals and outdoor activities such as horses, dirt bike riding, a veggie garden and near-completed duck pond, its ideal for an active and outdoor loving family. You're even likely to occasionally play host to local wildlife including echidnas, kangaroos, koalas, wild ducks, wedge-tailed eagles and a host of native birdlife.
The property is also complete with an 8m x 3.5m garage/workshop with a roller door, and double carport machine shed of 8m wide x 6m, ensuring there's ample secure storage and shelter for all of your vehicles and possessions.
You'll also find three 22,500-litre water tanks, allowing you to switch between them to supply the house with fresh water.
The second residence on this property is a highlight in itself.
A three-bedroom, one-bathroom, completely self-contained home with front and rear outdoor entertainment decks, separate driveway, two 22,500-litre water tanks and a Colourbond garage with a separate workshop.
Indoor features include timber floating floors, raked ceilings, large kitchen, dining and pantry, laundry closet and, once again, gorgeous views of the countryside from every window.
This property ticks all the boxes for tranquil rural living within easy access to Geelong, and is a MUST SEE to be fully appreciated.
A savvy buyer looking for a change from Melbourne's hustle and bustle, or a family wanting a peaceful country lifestyle but close to the city, will not want to let this opportunity pass.
