Easy commuting distance from the suburbs and extensive town services plus a delightful environment means lifestyle family residential properties like this in the Kilmore district are always keenly sought.
This established property is only about three kilometres north of the recently built Coles and Aldi retail complex on the northern edge of central Kilmore.
The vendors, who have owned the property since 1977, say they never got around to putting a name on the front gate as it was their peaceful and delightful getaway.
But with their children now grown up and building their own careers, and with their permanent home in the suburbs, they have decided it’s time to realise “their weekender’.
Firstly, there is a rural land area of 16.9 hectares or 42 acres, where the vendors for many years bred quarter horses and thoroughbreds and successfully raced their produce.
The property is quite a striking land form of rising ground coming off the Northern Highway entry.
The quality brick veneer homestead has four bedrooms and a Colorbond roof.
Being sited on a high point its position affords outstanding perspectives across the local district.
The 271 square metres, or 29 squares, home was built only about twelve years ago and includes two living areas plus all services; the deck at the front is a great place to observe the seasonal changes.
The services range from a combustion wood fire to reverse cycle air conditioning, while the classic kitchen has a bay window, a dishwasher, downlights and ceiling fans in all the rooms.
The large master bedroom has twin vanities, walk in robes and an ensuite with spa.
There is also a home office or study that has served as a fifth or overflow bedroom when needed. Under the high-pitched roof is even an attic storage area of about 31 square metres.
There is adequate rainwater storage while the property has three stock dams.
