Escape to the country

September 23, 2021 BY

"Karoola Hills" at 10 Casboults Road in Wensleydale will fulfil your dream of escaping to the country.

HINTERLAND living is the desire of many, a place to get away from it all and create your own private piece of paradise while keeping COVID at bay.

Some of the best lifestyle properties on the Surf Coast are located in the hinterland area between Cape Otway Road and the Otway Forest Park with the hamlet of Wensleydale perfectly positioned on farmland at the edge of the park.

Ferris Gold Real Estate has recently listed a spectacular acreage rural holding that would make for the perfect lifestyle retreat, hobby farm or boutique agriculture enterprise.

“Karoola Hills” at 10 Casboults Road Wensleydale will fulfil your dream of escaping to the country by re-locating to this spectacular property on approximately 62 acres of undulating pastureland and views flanked by bushland, where you can work, rest or play and enjoy direct access to the Otway Forest Park at the rear of the property.

You can move straight into the traditional three-bedroom brick veneer farmhouse with two fireplaces and two great living spaces or re-develop to your taste.

This fantastic property is truly a ‘kids paradise’ where they can ride horses, have loads of pets, build cubbies, explore acres upon acres and let their imaginations run wild.

Ferris Gold director Michael Ferris said this property stands out not only because of the fantastic location, but the fact that it has a rolling hill vista whilst being quite flat.

“The other bonus is having the most amazing state forest at your back gate, bikes, horses, hiking is all part of the lifestyle,” Mr Ferris said.

“Although located in a peaceful part of Surf Coast’s hinterland, it is just a short trip to several rural towns and the coast.”

The property also boasts a well-equipped woolshed with power ready to shear those ‘jolly jumbucks’ and three 10,000 litre water tanks, three dams and six troughs throughout the property to keep livestock well watered.

Another huge shed adjacent to the home has enough space for farm equipment, tractors or eight vehicles.

Just 30 minutes from the coastal townships of Torquay and Anglesea or Aireys Inlet and only 10 minutes to the delightful hamlet of Moriac offering a primary school, general store and cafe.

It is also 15 minutes to the township of Winchelsea with its supermarket, cafes, chemist and hospital and an easy 30-minute drive to Geelong, with just over an hour to Melbourne.
