Nestled on the outskirts of the township of Kimberley and bordered by frontage to both the Mersey River and Coilers Creek is this unique 11.5 acre retreat and farmlet. With a neat well presented and partially renovated 3 bedroom timber clad homestead, fertile soils and productive river-flat pastures, expansive river frontage perfect for the avid angler or kayak enthusiast everything is here to enjoy the serenity and privacy of this very attractive lifestyle property as well as the ability to derive a handy supplementary income. The residence is clad in stained hardwood timbers renewed in the last three years. Also in the last two and three years the house has been has had new colour-bond roofing and guttering, had ceiling insulation added; the kitchen-dining living room and passage have had been re-plastered, the interior painted, new carpet in the living area, a new kitchen installed, and a new water poly water tank added for rainwater collection. Heating is provided by a Saxon wood heater with a cook top capacity for slow cooked stews. Household water is on a pressure system from the rainwater collection tanks. Garden, laundry, toilet and stockwater is supplied from a pressure system from Hot Water Creek which meanders through the property, the third of the permanent waterways at the property. The paddocks are fenced with electric division, with smaller permanent holding paddocks and stockyards around the house and main compound, The riverflats lead to the banks of the two main waterways, and provide some wonderful picnic sites, and outstanding trout fishing opportunities. Views from the property take in Mount Roland in the distance, the pebbled river banks of the Mersey River, surrounding rural landscape and wooded hills. The property shed facilities include a zincalume double garage, corrugated iron clad barn with a capacity of approximately 550 square bales of hay, and a double bay utility or machinery shed. The property comfortably caters for 10 or twelve beef cows and progeny, particularly with the fodder the riverflat pastures produce in the lushness of spring to be harvested for winter storage. For a family wishing for an affordable small acreage holding and an idyllic lifestyle opportunity, or of a country background looking for a weekend retreat as a hobby farmlet with obvious lifestyle attractions it is perfect. There is also ample opportunity to extend the home and add facilities if one wished. It is adjacent to numerous riding trails, in fact the annual Kimberley endurance ride base is only a few hundred metres up the road, and the Kentish ride also passes in close proximity. Railton and Sheffield are both within ten minutes drive, while Devonport, Latrobe and Deloraine are all within approximately 30 minutes. Property Code: 39
