Multiple paddocks with excellent fencing, automatic water troughs and lush improved pasture will allow you to run stock at similar levels to much larger properties. You could cut hay like the current owners and there is option to purchase this property walk-in walk-out with or without their beautiful herd of alpacas. There's excellent shedding including a well set up shearing shed, a four bay machinery shed, a big hay shed plus a double garage and a number of additional storage sheds. Fenced lane-ways with smaller holding paddocks and a great set of yards mean even the novice farmer can handle their stock with ease.
The comfortable country style home boasts 4 bedrooms and a study, a nice bright kitchen with adjacent dining room and a big separate lounge-room plus a sun-room or second study. It is tucked away in a peaceful, private garden setting surrounded by beautiful deciduous trees. You would never know that you are just a minute off the highway and only 90 minutes from Melbourne. Mansfield is about 30 minutes further en-route to Mt Buller.
The property title includes a small parcel of land on the other side of Merton Creek, conferring riparian water rights and there is a pump and storage tanks in place with lines to the stock troughs and gardens. A selection of established fruit trees, fabulous raised vegetable garden beds and a big chook run mean that you can enjoy lovely fresh produce and keep your grocery bill right down!
Does this sound like the country property of your dreams? Private. Peaceful. Enough good quality land to call a farm...but not too much to worry about if you are not quite ready to move out of town full-time. But be will find it hard to leave 'Cloverlea Farm'.
