Same family ownership since 1920, this federation homestead on 52 acres has been faithfully restored and extended into a charming family home. The residence is flanked by century old pines and boasts 11’ ceilings. A deep front veranda provides entry to the main hall and formal sitting room with stained glass window and OFP. A generous hallway runs the entire length of the home and leads to a lounge with wood-heater and RC/AC. Sunny country kitchen with meals area, timber bench-tops plus huge WI pantry. There are three bedrooms, main with ensuite, WIR and OFP, while bedrooms 2 & 3 both have BIR. To complete the home, there’s an office or fourth bedroom, a central family bathroom with shower, separate WC and a large laundry room with loads of storage.
In addition to the main home, there’s a separate self-contained one-bedroom unit, with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and laundry which lends itself to a studio, office or separate living quarters for a teenager in need of their own space. Offering panoramic views to the Otway Ranges and Surf Coast, the property is subdivided into six paddocks and includes a 3-box stable complex with handling yards, new 4-bay workshop with garaging and loads of storage. Zoned farming, the property also includes an easement to the Barwon River. Primary school bus passes front gate. 20 minutes from the ring road, 25 minutes to Geelong and 75 minutes to Melbourne.
