"MOONBAH" A LIFESTYLE CHOICE

This perfectly situated home on almost 50 acres is an absolute gem. An exceptional lifestyle property and a delightful sanctuary in a peaceful spot with no through traffic to disturb the serenity. Just the occasional cow or magpie breaks the silence. Yet, the property is within walking distance to town and only 500 metres from the local golf course. In fact, the current owner keeps a golf buggy in the shed to make the trip between home and the clubhouse. Moonbah spreads across 19.597 hectares or 48.42 acres on two titles at the end of a Government road. There is a 472m frontage to Murphys Lane and a 404m frontage to Duggans Road. The property is currently set up for hobby scale farming and the land currently runs a small herd of cattle. The property has great potential, with well grassed paddocks and a lightly timbered gully between Murphys Lane and Duggans Road. There is sufficient land to graze cattle with growing out of calves or cows and calves. Alternatively, it could be used as agistment for cattle or horses. Ample water is available from the two dams on the property and there are two stock troughs, which are serviced by town water supply. The refurbished stockyards are equipped with a loading ramp as well as a roofed cattle crush. The main property access is from Bonang Road along Murphys Lane across the cattle grid at end of Murphys Lane, the house is around a kilometre from the north edge of town. Alternatively, farm gate access is also available from Duggans Road. The highly sought after out of town but nearly in-town setting is a great attribute and certainly gives the owners the best of both worlds. A short stroll from Orbost gives access to comprehensive medical services such as four doctors, two supermarkets and numerous service facilities. Or, as previously mentioned, Orbost Golf Course is nearby as well as the corner shop. The dwelling is a quality built 1980s brick veneer, with three bedrooms, all with built-in robes, there are two bathrooms, a sunken lounge adjoining the formal dining area and a family/dining room area adjacent to the recently renovated galley kitchen. The home has brick feature walls in the lounge/dining room and a brick archway between the kitchen and family room. There is a generous laundry and utility room with separate external access. With its Northerly aspect this is a home that has been designed for year round comfort and careful attention has been paid to fire safety. For chilly nights, there is virtually unlimited firewood at hand to keep the wood heater in the lounge area roaring. Country living at its best. The outbuildings are extensive and feature a detached steel framed 12m x 6m workshop/garage with underground power and internal lighting. There is also a steel framed 8m x 6.8m farm storage shed, a pole framed tractor shed and a trailer shed. A mains operated electric fence energiser unit with up to 95 kms of wire capacity keeps the livestock where they should be. As you would expect, the views are captivating and overlook the township and across the Snowy River flats. With its temperate climate year round, the Far East Gippsland area is exceptionally liveable and is also noted for reliable ocean and river fishing. Surrounded by beautiful national and state parks, and only two hours from the snow fields, the area is a nature lovers dream, with bushwalking, sightseeing, camping and 4WD adventures on your doorstep. If you are looking for your own little piece of serenity, Moonbah will be hard to beat. Property Code: 57
