This is an opportunity to purchase a natural stand of native timber whether for preservation or (STCA) to clear a small parcel for a privately located dwelling amongst the timbers and enjoy the sounds of the native birds in the trees and undergrowth.
Here is an opportunity to own your very own bush block. Only a twenty to twenty five minute drive from Latrobe or Devonport and a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Railton and ten minutes into Sheffield.
The trees are mostly straight, long established natural timber. A good selection of limbs for firewood. Subject to Council Approval (STCA) building a new home should not be a problem. An ideal lifestyle location so close to town, shops and local school.
The timber has not been previously cleared, and while the owners used to take a few trees each year for firewood, these would be fallen or have been trees that had died or were deteriorating as a rule. There is a small stream that runs across the bottom of the property, that could possibly be dammed, or a well dug, for water usage.
A point of interest is that the Latrobe-Sheffield railway used to run across the bottom of the block, and this foundation might provide the best road access into the block if the intention is to build. Also of interest is that is that its adjacent to Sykes Sanctuary, http://www.sheffieldcradleinfo.com.au/pages/sykes-sanctuary/ which is home to a range of wildlife, including wallabies and sugar gliders as well as a variety of other native animals and plants.
Please note the views containing pasture in the foreground are towards the offering showing the timbers edge and are not part of the allotment for sale.
