A lifestyle and grazing property with a unique landform at Gooram about fifteen kilometres south of Euroa is scheduled for auction in Euroa on Saturday 14 October at The Flour Mill Restaurant at 11 am.
Known as 102 Mt Cecilia Road the property is designated by a local landmark known as Mount Cecilia which peaks at 568 metres above sea level, from where three hundred and sixty-degree views of the local district including part of the Strathbogie Ranges and the Creighton’s Creek valley and the Ruffy district are in sight.
It also has a view over the Lindsay Park Racing establishment of the Hayes family.
The property has a freehold area of 257.3 hectares with another 12.6 hectares held under lease being an old unused road reserve, making it a total space of 269.9 hectares.
Importantly the property is held in six titles and is being offered on behalf of a Melbourne family who has held the property since 1999.
Ruralco Property’s selling agent Matt Giffin who holds the auction listing says that the vendors have used the property for recreational purposes, running cattle and had unrealised plans to ultimately build a home on the holding, or even to subdivide it given the six titles.
The property is subdivided into seven paddocks with stock proof fencing and there are seventeen dams most of which are either catchment or spring fed and reliable holders of stock water.
The only building is a barn style shed which has been a storage resource.
Mr Giffin says there are a number of internal access tracks leading up to the summit while half the property has easily accessible grazing, with the balance as native eucalypt and understorey with a number of large and striking granite boulder outcrops.
There is Crown Land adjoining to the North.
“On offer here is over 660 acres of land that can be used for a variety of purposes from running cattle, with a set of yards in place, to all sorts of outdoor activity, or with the addition of an appropriate permitted building it can become an ideal lifestyle hideaway or permanent living.
“It is within about 170 kms of the city with access either via the Hume Freeway or the Maroondah Highway via Merton from the west.
“I am anticipating that auction offers will fall in excess of $800,000 as the panorama is a unique and positive feature” Mr Giffin says.
