The property located at 155 Capstone Drive which runs off the Whittlesea to Wallan regional road is at the end of a no through bitumen court and it has an area of 9.3 hectares (or23 acres).

A feature is the solid four bedroom bluestone block home that is situated on one of the highest points of the land.

In its peaceful location as the last property in a court style precinct and facing east it traps all the morning sun and offers a spectacular view over adjacent farmland with the Kinglake Ranges and the Dandenong Ranges much further east providing the horizon.

Ruralco’s selling agent Jeanette Laffan says that the vendors have implemented a substantial timber post and rail fencing program around a formed internal roadway to create access to nine horse paddocks, six of which have shelters.

The vendor has a competitive interest in the equestrian sports as well as being a breeder of pure Friesian and Friesian cross horses.

“They have ensured that the pasture development and infrastructure together with a reticulated paddock water supply is in order to suit their interest.

“The large blue stone block home offers four bedrooms the main with en suite, two bathrooms and a large open plan living space with the lounge area having an open fireplace with polished timber floors beneath a cathedral ceiling”.

The open plan kitchen and meals area with wood heating and split system air-conditioning with wide shady verandas and a double garage able to house four vehicles under the roofline complete the package.

There is also an in ground solar heated salt water pool while a large concrete storage tank harvests rainwater.

Another building on the property is a large enclosed steel machinery shed measuring eleven by six metres with concrete floor and power connected; this building would be a significant benefit to a tradesman type business.

Ms Laffan says 155 Capstone Drive is set amongst similar acreage lifestyle and rural holdings.
