This prosperous property offers a family the opportunity to live the quintessential rural lifestyle just minutes from a well-serviced regional centre.
The propertys manageable size and close proximity to the provincial city of Warrnambool make Greenhills an ideal opportunity to embrace an idyllic lifestyle whilst maintaining touch with the modern comforts and services of a thriving regional centre. Land lease opportunities also present the opportunity for income - perfect for a professional couple looking for a tree-change.
Greenhills many features include a beautiful, well-maintained weatherboard homestead with period charm; ample shedding; expansive, well-maintained gardens and stunning vistas.
Greenhills is located 2km North of Winslow and an 18km drive from Warrnambool, accessed via a long and sweeping private driveway off a major thoroughfare between Warrnambool and Hamilton.
Plantations of established native trees majestically frame the home and surrounding paddocks, providing both practical shelter and an attractive outlook.
Aptly named, this lush property currently operates as a Grazing Property, but would be just as suited to sheep, horse breeding operations or dairy runoff.
Just 15 minutes drive south is the thriving regional centre of Warrnambool, where bus services connect to the citys many primary and secondary schools, shopping centres and the other abundant services that one would expect to find in a regional city.
The cornerstone of this beautiful property is the three-bedroom, weatherboard homestead.
Finely maintained, this Period Home overlooks the northern plains of Greenhills, with views as far north as the world-renowned Grampians mountain range.
The homes design has many period features including 9-foot-ceilings; polished floorboards; intricate ceiling plasterwork and wrap-around verandah with discreet and practical modern updates such as a spacious blackwood kitchen; laundry and bedroom additions, new wiring and plumbing, full insulation and a 288-bottle wine cellar.
The homes formal entrance opens to a wide hallway, flanked by the master bedroom (with grand bay window) and spacious, well-appointed home office to the left, and a formal lounge/sitting room on the right.
From here, the hallway leads to a generous living and dining space that includes a large blackwood kitchen, updated with many mod-cons, including walk-in pantry, dishwasher and freestanding oven. A north and east facing window provide plenty of natural light.
For those days (and evenings) when the warm sun is less abundant, a wood-fired heater guarantees a cosy environment.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the formal dining room, featuring west-facing French doors that open to the verandah. While its location and design make it a ready-made dining space, it would just as easily be utilised for more informal needs, such as a second family room, or childrens playroom.
Towards the rear of the house, two bedrooms have been sympathetically added to the original structure, along with an ample family bathroom and spacious laundry. Finally, the large, underground wine cellar completes the inside features.
The homestead is framed by a charming cottage garden, featuring carefully-planted selections of roses, perennials and bulbs. A productive orchard complete the established plantings that surround the homestead and lush lawns.
Adjacent to the homestead is a 50 x 20 two-door, lockable garage plus workshop with shelving, racking and a workbench; full concrete floor & power throughout.
Set high on the hill offering 270-degree views over the farm and beyond.
The property of 220 acres is in two titles and subdivided by a laneway to 12 main paddocks with excellent permanent electric fencing, all leading to the sheep and cattle yards for ease of stock handling.
An excellent self-sufficient Water supply; the homestead is connected to rainwater, while bore water tanks also provide pressurised supply to livestock and the garden. Each paddock is water under reticulation from the bore (200 deep) by 2 poly pipe main line. The fertiliser history is sound and the pastures are perennial based.
The shedding is outstanding. There is a 6 bay shed which includes a 2-stand raised board shearing shed with connecting sheep-yards, and machinery shed fully concreted with power connected. This space would be an ideal storage area for large farm or leisure vehicles, such as a tractor, boat or caravan.
Another smaller shed with removable pens conveniently located with easy access to the homestead - lends itself to the rearing of bobby calves or lambs. Alternatively, the pens could be removed to make way for a stable.
