This GAFIA country (Get Away From It All) has large tracts of recreational land with farming potential and where domestic housing permits can be obtained.
Parcels like this are getting increasingly difficult to find, especially when they are sought for motor bike riding, four wheel driving, camping or hiking or just to enjoy the great outdoors. When they are within under ninety minutes from the Melbourne metropolitan area and just east of Seymour and within 10 kilometres of the Hume freeway, it's bonus on bonus here.
The land area is significant at 152 hectares or 376 acres, made up of 320 acres of freehold with a 99 year lease over another 56 acres while the land form is a mix of two prominent hills, their valleys and open country that is part timbered, part pasture.
The boundary fencing is in good order with several established tree lines with scope to run some sheep, goats or alpacas.
There is an additional bonus as the property currently generates an income of $23,500 per annum from the existing long leases to Telstra and Optus.
There is an already existing Telstra telecommunications tower on the property while Optus has leased the site for its yet to be installed tower.
Mr Woodley says the driveway is locked public access and is not available for security reasons. He can arrange inspections of the property so phone for an appointment.
