A very well presented equestrian or lifestyle property located at the junction of Bowers Road and the Northern Highway only minutes north of the Kilmore township is currently listed for private sale by the local Ruralco Real Estate office.
Comprising a land area of eight hectares (or twenty acres) the property is for sale with an asking price of $650,000 to $685,000.
Ruralco’s selling agent Grant McKenzie says he anticipates the property will be bought by a family with existing equestrian interests, while there is also an opening to establish a horse agistment business to take advantage of the excellent infrastructure that is in place.
The substantial home and the large area of buildings in place could also attract a trade’s style buyer who could operate his business from this property.
The homestead is a large brick veneer three bedroom home that is estimated to have a size of about twenty squares under roof.
It is positioned well back on the allotment and provides a commanding view over the rolling rural countryside to the west.
The home also has a large veranda where McKenzie says he envisages the purchaser sitting to watch the setting sun.
He notes that the homestead offers three large bedrooms all with robes while the master has an ensuite and a large walk in robe.
“There has been a good deal of recent remodelling including the fully equipped Tasmanian Oak timbered kitchen and a refurbished bathroom.
“The large open plan living area at the rear of the building traps the morning sun and has a wood heater and plenty of scope to relax when your days work is done.
“Exterior facilities include a large aviary, established vegetable garden and storage shedding”.
But he says it is the equestrian facilities that tops the billing.
There are two ménage areas ideal for dressage or show jumping preparation plus a large timber fenced round yard.
The property’s fenced subdivision is into sixteen horse paddocks, eleven of which have horse shelters in place.
There is also a large 18 by 15 metre concrete block stable building with scope for six large indoor boxes plus tack room and a wash down area, even an enclosed dog yard.
On the roof of the block is a fourteen solar panel assembly which helps ensure that the property power costs are modest.
There are three large paddock dams throughout the farm and extensive rain water storage, while additional buildings provide or hay storage and farm machinery.
Bowers Road is a no-through road but it provides access for plenty of trail riding or horse exercise opportunities.
The property is for sale to enable the vendor’s daughter Jessica Mace to pursue an advanced show jumping career interstate.
Having already competed at a high level and been a member of an Equestrian Victoria training squad Jess has recently gained her Bachelor of Equine Studies from the Melbourne Polytechnic and wants to specialise in future in the treatment of equine muscle structures.
Jess-says the property facilities are well set up for hobby to semi professional horse activities and the central Kilmore location provides easy access to the main equine events of central Victoria.
Selling agent Grant McKenzie says that this is the type of property that is traditionally purchased by a family relocating from the metropolitan area.
“With all the community facilities and residential and commercial developments that gives Kilmore one of the highest growth rates in the State and is only minutes away this is the type of lifestyle location that causes no loss of amenity.
“All the equine infrastructure is well established for an active participation, with the option to grow an agistment business or to use as a tradies working location so I highly recommend inspection of this property” McKenzie says.
