Two first-class Barrabool Hills holdings on offer
HF Richardson Property has listed two superb Barrabool Road properties that are being offered as a whole or as two separate lots in first-class Barrabool Hills holdings.
840 Barrabool Road offers 124 acres with exceptional views and quality, undulating pastured country.
This private acreage enjoys prime versatile soils, supported by a permanent spring and well-structured paddocks and laneways.
Positioned in one of the region’s most sought-after locales, providing the perfect blend of country living on the fringe of Geelong, this rare-to-market and truly blue-ribbon holding is a fine example of rural acreage in a premium Barrabool Hills position.
The eastern side of the property features a comfortable three-bedroom western red cedar family home, enjoying a tree-lined driveway and an elevated position which takes advantage of the north westerly views.
The large family home features a spacious verandah that takes advantage of the panoramic views, an expansive master bedroom with walk in robe and split system heat/cooling, two further bedrooms with built in robes, and a kitchen with Beko electric stove and oven.
The home also has a meals area, lounge with wood fire, a central family bathroom, large laundry and approx. 83,000-litre tank water supply.
Other property improvements across the farm include a near-new five-bay hay/machinery shed with 45,000-litre tank water and a second five-bay hay/machinery shed with 45,000-litre tank.
The property has one dam, 11 main paddocks, and a permanent spring that fills a header tank which reticulates to paddock troughs.
The area is nicely planted out with shelter belts and extensive native plantings with improved pastures and separate access off Barrabool Road for stock trucks/machinery.
This property provides plenty of flexibility with the existing family home offering comfortable living in a private position, while the undulating natural landscape offer the potential to build your dream home (STCA) to take advantage of a multitude of sites that enjoy exceptional elevated views.
HF Richardson’s Matt Poustie said this was an exclusive chance to secure two exceptional holdings that offered the ultimate lifestyle choice and a farming opportunity.
“Both properties stand out and offer something unique in this market,” Mr Poustie said.
“Whether you’re looking for a smaller lifestyle property to enjoy the tranquility of the rolling Barrabool Hills or looking to stretch out on a larger property and enjoy the farm life, these offerings have it all.
“Once you come and see the outlook and lifestyle these properties offer, you will realise just how special this area is.”
The adjoining 850 Barrabool Road property is steeped in history and set across a comfortable six acres.
“Westcott” offers the rare opportunity to secure a small acreage holding amongst the rolling hills of Barrabool, where peace and tranquility becomes a way of life.
This superbly positioned rural lifestyle property features a charming and light-filled three-bedroom weatherboard home, which enjoys sensational, elevated views to the north and a rural setting that will be sure to impress.
The home has been fully renovated with a modern kitchen featuring Smeg appliances, a spacious family bathroom, and enjoys a large family lounge space with split system heating and cooling and an excellent slow combustion wood fire.
Leading off the kitchen and meals space is a huge deck area with an undercover barbecue space, enjoying a spectacular northerly vista of the surrounding hills and paddocks, plus the company of the abundant birdlife that calls this place home.
Adjoining this entertaining space is a historical, split-level sandstone wine cellar, with storage room above.
Externally, the home is nestled amongst the established trees and gardens, further adding to the beautiful country feel and rustic nature of this incredible property.
The 1856 two-storey sandstone stables are used for storage and shearing (one stand), while a modern two bay machinery shed/garage has been tastefully added onto the structure featuring rammed earth walls, secure parking and a workshop with approx. 45,000-litre tank water.
The property also enjoys the provision of permanent stock yards, four main paddocks, an older three bay machinery/hay shed, one large dam, old dairy building which has been converted into a small workshop/garden shed and a 30,000-litre tank water.
Privately positioned in an exclusive rural lifestyle enclave, in the heart of an established farming community, this blue-chip Barrabool property is ideally suited as a permanent family home or as a rural weekend escape.
Conveniently located just a few minutes from the town of Ceres, 9 minutes to the Highton Village, elite private schools Geelong Grammar and Geelong College are only a short drive away, with the nearby Hamilton Highway or Barrabool Road on-ramps providing easy access onto the Ring Road/Princes Highway for an easy trip up to Melbourne or across to the Surf Coast beaches.
