KILMORE’s MOORLANDS – 61 HA FARM, STUD OR LIFESTYLE WITH HIGH QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS
Moorlands is a 61 hectare (or 152 acre) high quality rural property with outstanding building improvements located at 345 Moores Road at Kilmore.
Situated only eight kilometres west of the well serviced Kilmore township the property is listed for private sale by the Ruralco Kilmore office with an asking price of $1,125,000.
The vendors who commenced the development of the property eleven years ago have brought the highly attractive property to the market with a plan to retire.
They designed and had built the 22 square four bedroom homestead that is sited on an elevated position to command the best local views and aspects.
The brick homestead is built around a steel frame and includes all the desirable mod cons including spacious rooms, open plan dining and living areas, walk in robes to two main bedrooms and a spacious kitchen with a built in pantry.
The ceiling height is 2.74 metres or nine feet with double glazed windows and quality carpets, lighting and curtains.
There is a three car garage under the roofline with an adjacent three car capacity carport.
Another feature is the pergola measuring 21 metres by 6 that runs along the eastern rear of the homestead affording the ideal location for sitting, relaxing, entertaining or just to take in the ever changing outlook over the local district.
Three water tanks each of 93,000 litres in capacity ensure a reliable water source for household use
Two springs on Moorlands also afford an additional water source.
There are nine paddocks laid out to mostly new fencing with a reticulated stock trough watering system and electric boundary fencing., while spread around the farm are seven dams one with an electric pressure system installed for garden watering or emergency needs.
There is a 18 by 9 metre steel clad shed with concrete floor and three phase power currently in use as the machinery shed and workshop.
A recently constructed second steel shed of 18 by 18 metres is used as a hay shed with a capacity estimated at several hundred large round bales.
There are also two paddock shelters fitted with water tanks and a practical set of cattle yards.
Installed on the roof is a sixteen panel by three kilowatt solar power assembly that is paid at the premium rate for the excess power delivered into the grid.
Ruralco Kilmore’s selling agent Grant McKenzie says that the vendors until recently conducted a well known registered Highland cattle fold that gained many show successes along with their commercial Red Angus cattle.
“With their plan to retire the vendors destocked the property recently with the soils providing a mixture of pastures of rye and phalaris able to produce excellent quality hay and fodder.
“All the infrastructure is ready for a new owner and enterprise be it livestock, horses or as an ideal size of property for a stud breeding operation.
“This property is within about fifty minutes of the northern city fringe with easy Hume Freeway access and with Kilmore’s retail, services and education facilities would represent a great family living opportunity.
“The vendors are ready to retire and are keen to see a new owner able to capitalise on the excellent foundations created under their ownership”.
