Check out the views to the Samaria and Strathbogie Ranges from the arena. For equine enthusiasts there's also a round yard shaded by a small stand of gums and plenty of shedding that could be converted to stables for your four legged family members.
For your two legged family the charming cedar cottage has been beautifully renovated to offer comfortable accommodation with 3 nice big bedrooms, an updated bathroom plus another separate WC off the laundry/mudroom. The big bright kitchen boasts a swanky big stainless steel range and a lovely bay window with views across the paddocks to the North of the home. There's a spacious open plan living area with a reverse cycle split system and wood fire, plus an adjacent study or sunroom. The dining area opens up onto the North facing deck plus there's another verandah on the South side of the home. So many lovely spots to relax and enjoy the views.
No need to worry about water with ample rainwater storage and new guttering on the home. There's also a grid connected solar system so you don' t have to worry about power bills.
The gently undulating paddocks are suitable for all kinds of livestock in addition to horses and there are cattle yards, the original shearing shed plus a 3 bay machinery shed and 2 bay garage with a workshop. There is also a chook shed and an insulated sleep-out (donga).
Swanpool is a vibrant rural hamlet with a licensed general store , primary school, retro style cinema, football/netball club grounds and even a bowls club. Lake Nillahcootie and the Strathbogie State Forest are within easy reach for all your outdoor adventure needs. For shopping and education requirements Benalla is a pleasant 20 minute drive to the North and the booming tourist town of Mansfield just a little further afield in the other direction. You can be in Melbourne within a couple of hours...but not sure you will want to leave this lovely part of the world too often!
