An impressive equestrian property with a recently renovated brick homestead on a large four hectare (10 acre) corner allotment at 5 Wallan Heights Road in blue chip Wallan has been listed for private sale by the Kilmore office of Ruralco real estate agents with a price expectation in the mid to high $700,000 range.
At this price level, it is not only an a sound investment in the largest and fastest growing town in the Mitchell Shire, it offers family living with views from the property overlooking the district and CBD to the south and enjoying the delightful views across the countryside westwards towards the Macedon Ranges from the homestead.
Ruralco’s Kilmore agent Grant McKenzie says that the property was set up for one of the vendors to pursue her competitive interests in dressage.
Due to sponsorship and overseas training this property is now reluctantly being offered for sale.
A notable attraction is the American barn which was purpose designed and built to include two of the safest and most beautiful stables money can buy, with the option to add more.
There are exterior yards accessible from inside the barn which also has a tank water supply installed and the option to gravity feed paddocks. There are also two dams on the property.
The building also adjoins a fully constructed Olympic size (60m x 20m) dressage arena with post and rail fencing.
The boundary of the property has been well fenced in post and rail, with four smaller internal paddocks a combination of post and mesh or post and rail (all electric).
There has been temporary fencing of four other paddocks of similar size and one larger paddock which will enable the new owner to make their own regardless if they pursue competition, recreational riding or even breeding.
The brick homestead that underwent a major renovation recently offers three bedrooms, ensuite, plus study with multiple living areas and adjoining dining area, a well equipped kitchen, central bathroom and polished timber floors.
The services include reverse cycle airconditioning and heating with a combustion wood heater and open fireplace for the winter nights, with the rainwater harvested.
There is also a large undercover deck area, double garage and secure carport while the property has partly sealed road access and easy connection to the Northern Highway north of the Wallan township.
“This property zoned farming is directly opposite the Springridge multistage residential estate development on the Northern Highway which itself is opposite the well regarded Hidden Valley country estate development with its eighteen hole Craig Parry designed golf course, country club and most importantly the world class equestrian centre.
“The vendors have commuted to their work in the Melbourne CBD by the VLine train from Wallan station that is only 7 kilometres away, completing their journey in under one hour, while driving is another option with direct freeway all the way and only 45 minutes to the Docklands.
“There are many competitive equestrian facilities and equine services within easy reach while this property being on a corner allotment has two road access points.
“Equine properties like this one in an ideal location for professionals commuting to the CBD and only minutes from shops, cafes, post office and schools are increasingly harder to find, especially where there has been a strong investment in creating the necessary infrastructure” Mr McKenzie adds.
