This beautifully restored farmhouse now offers all the comforts and convenience of modern living in an incredibly private and peaceful setting, nestled amongst high impact but low maintenance gardens. Extensive plantings of bulbs and established deciduous trees display a kaleidoscope of colours as the seasons change. Howes Creek meanders through the property, with nearly 30 acres of productive pasture for your four legged friends. There's a great mix of lush creek flats and rolling hills, with new fencing and water to all paddocks and magnificent gums providing shade and shelter. Their size and health are testament to the quality of the soil and abundance of water. As well as the creek and huge volume of rainwater storage there is also a bore, making this property practically drought proof.
You can watch over your cattle or horses while you relax in the sun on the North facing rear verandah. A selection of stunning native birds are regular visitors and add another colourful dimension to the ever changing views.
The house yard is fully fenced, so children and pets can safely roam under the trees, and there is a nice big shed with concrete floor.
The verandah wraps right around the cottage and all the timber decking has been replaced in recent years. In fact the entire home has basically been rebuilt, with practical inclusions such as new high quality toughened glass windows, an efficient and stylish Arrow wood fire, reverse cycle air-conditioning, and Earthwool insulation in the roof and walls ensuring your comfort in all seasons. The superbly appointed new kitchen and adjacent dining area are bathed in natural light, with every single room in the house boasting delightful garden views and not another house within sight or earshot. It really is incredibly peaceful.
While we think it will be hard to tear yourself away from your new country home, the huge aquatic playground of Lake Eildon is a 5 minute drive, with selection of deep water concrete boat ramps at Goughs Bay. You can enjoy a dip in the sparkling Delatite River at Bracks Bridge en-route. Mansfield township is less than 15 minutes away and there is a school bus service with a stop only metres from the front gate. If you really need to go to Melbourne you can head around the corner onto Howes Creek Road and be on the highway in about 10 minutes. But hurry home...you don't want to miss a day in paradise!
