Look no further. This amazing rural property of an impressive 147 acres is absolutely perfect for those wanting a piece of the idyllic farming lifestyle. No matter whether your interest is cattle, horses or any kind of livestock, this property caters for them all. The rich red soil throughout is even productive enough for cropping if that is your interest.
There are two main sections separated by Chilcotts road, 'The Home Farm' and 'The Clayton Block'. The Home Farm being 117 Acres approx. and The Clayton Block being 30 Acres approx.
The Home Farm…
The home itself is everything you expect from a country homestead and more. Extremely neat and tidy with 5 bedrooms, a generous lounge room with wood heater and a skillion off the rear of the home housing the kitchen, cloak room and bathroom. The kitchen is functional and provides plenty of storage space, there is also a great view of the farm from here, making cooking dinner a scenic experience! The bathroom is generous in size and offers a large shower over bath, vanity and toilet. There is another wood heater at the rear of the home and working open fireplaces in both the kitchen and one of the bedrooms.
Nearby the home there are several outbuildings including a pump shed, wood/garden shed and the old dairy come tack shed with the option for power to be connected. Leaving the house yard and heading over to the farm yard you will find a huge 5 bay machinery shed, a fully powered workshop with hot water available, a 4 bay machinery shed, the old granary, chook house, the old stables and shoeing bay and of course the barn. There is also a cattle yard off the rear of the old stables. Perhaps the jewel in the crown of this property is the stunning dam near the home and farm yards. Sitting on the back porch overlooking the dam, often with swans on it, is just serenity in its greatest form.
There are 9 paddocks on The Home Farm, all but one with its own natural water source. Natural springs are scattered through the property as well as 3 spring fed dams and Bishops Creek ensuring there is fresh stock water all year round.
The entire property is extremely well fenced with the rear boundaries having new wallaby fencing. All the gates throughout the property are also good quality metal stock gates.
A huge hay barn is located at the rear of the home farm providing plenty of round bale storage. The gravel pit is located nearby.
Between the Home Farm and Clayton Block there is access to horse riding trails for as far as you wish to go, you could ride all day and not cross the same path twice. A horse lover's dream.
The Clayton Block…
It's hard to explain how beautiful this area of the property is, it's simply an oasis where you truly feel a world away. The Clayton Rivulet runs through this 30 Acre block and there is a great little swimming hole for ending those hot summer days on the farm. Three sides of the block are fenced, the road frontage with new wallaby fencing. 9 Acres of the Clayton Block have been a plantation in the past and this has been harvested. There are beautiful secluded areas with man ferns and native forest as well as plenty of cleared area. On top of the hill you can look back over almost the entire property, what a great place to build your dream homestead (STCA).
A scenic 15 minute drive will find you in the town of Ulverstone, with all the amenities you need… while the fantastic Sprent Primary School is only just down the road.
This property is so much more than a farm, it's a lifestyle and an amazing one at that! Call the listing agent Wendy Squibb to arrange your private inspection.
