A unique rural lifestyle holding with beautiful views and unlimited potential
280 GLOUCESTER TOPS ROAD FAULKLAND VIA GLOUCESTER
From the striking post and rail entrance, passed fertile paddocks to the high-set family residence with commanding views, you know you’ve arrived at something special. And special is an understatement. This superb 328ac (132.7ha) offers a tranquil rural lifestyle with excellent income opportunity. Boundary and internal fencing is in excellent order. Approximately 200 cleared acres has been divided into 8 paddocks and undergone a tremendous pasture improvement program that allows for the production of oats and rye for personal use or sale. The remainder of the acreage is native bush with an abundance of native flora and fauna. The property is extremely well watered with 10 dams, 3 of which withstood the drought. A bore and seasonal creek with permanent waterholes confirm ample paddock and stock water even under the harshest conditions. For cattle lovers, the superior quality of the pasture and permanent water supply deliver a carrying capacity of 35-40 breeders or 60 steers for fattening. Likewise, horse enthusiasts will relish the flat to undulating and steeper land dotted with shade trees and numerous riding, walking and mountain bike trails throughout open and timbered country. Additional features fully fenced dog yard, single-phase power, gravel tractor bay, steel stockyards, crush and race, hot-wired front paddock, daily mail delivery and school bus at front gate.
Surrounded by manicured lawns, the family residence is nicely sited on a rise to take full advantage of the breathtaking views over rolling farmland and across the valley to distant hills. A light and bright neutral palette throughout enhances the feeling of space. Open-plan living and dining zones with cosy slow combustion fire flow through to a kitchen that meets every need with ample bench and storage space, electric cooking, dishwasher and island bench with storage. The spacious covered alfresco patio opening from the kitchen is a delightful place for relaxation and entertainment. Three bedrooms, all enjoy property views; the enormous master with sliding doors to the expansive front facing patio which also doubles as a carport.
