‘Strathaven’ 42 hectare Lifestyle Bliss in the Valley of a Thousand Hills.

The first thing you’ll notice are the wow-factor views. In every direction. There are so many vantage points in The Valley of a Thousand Hills, you’ll never tire of looking.
The house is a Deco darling brimming with period features, yet offers the advantage of having been re-roofed, re-plumbed, re-wired and re-stumped at point of relocation, extension and renovation approximately 10 years ago. 4 bedrooms plus study (potentially 5 bedrooms), 2 bathrooms, laundry, mud room/drying room, verandahs and a 3 car carport. It offers Baltic pine floors, authentic leadlight windows, original quirky features alongside an open plan living/dining area, 4.5KW grid connected solar system, a Nectre fireplace with wet jacket, solar HWS, aerial/repeater boosted Telstra mobile signal, a stable NBN connection and an old fashioned land line.
A fenced cottage garden, includes a frog pond, established roses, boxed vegetable bed, dog run and woodshed make relaxing on the verandah a pleasure. There’s even a handy lemon tree for the G&T.
Got, or want, horses? Train, learn or teach in the 20M x 60M fenced sand arena. Make use of the American barn, with 3 earth floor loose boxes, concrete floored tack room, feed room, storage and extra wide breezeway. 10 large yards/small paddocks, laneway, multiple shelters and gravity fed troughs make clinics and horse management a breeze. Cut your own hay, and store up to 300 small squares in the handy hay shed. Plus there are many acres of turnout grazing. All adaptable to any other type of livestock activity.
Then there’s the enormous man-cave powered workshop and the 2 bedroom teenage retreat, also with carport, the open fronted machine shed and 3 spring-fed dams, one of which supplies all the garden water, plus a seasonal waterway. The fully enclosed fox proof chicken run has breakfast sorted. Fruit from the orchard will complete the meal. Across 9 tanks, there is a 202,365 Litre (44,970 Gallon) water capacity and gravity feed to the house & sheds means no pumps required.
And way up high, on the Top of the World and incorporating the Rooftop Walk, is a rustic cabin with an endless vista in case you need some quiet time.
There’s potential for family life, equine business, cattle or sheep grazing, Airbnb, Farmstay, manager’s quarters or just you, enjoying an idyllic lifestyle. For the most part, birdsong is the only thing you will hear.
The property is 99km from the CBD - catch a V-line train from nearby Broadford (a 20 minute drive) and you’ll be at Southern Cross in an hour. Kilmore, Seymour and Yea are all about half an hour’s drive away. Local school buses service Seymour and Yea.
Come have a look – electric solar gates make even that part easy.
