A small acreage farm holding at Springfield only nine kilometres west of the thriving Romsey township and in the Macedon Ranges Shire is currently listed for private sale by the Kilmore office of Rodwells Ruralco Property.

With an asking price of $925,000 to $950,000 Cushen Farm will offer the purchaser comfortable living in a great rural environment, even productive land to pursue a farming or animal husbandry interest and it would be a great opportunity for a tradesman or couple wishing to continue an off-farm business or working income.

The land area is 34 hectares, or 85 acres, that takes in some of the upper catchment area of Deep Creek.

Here the vendors have worked alongside Melbourne Water to preserve and protect the seasonal streams by fencing them off and over recent years planting more than 5,000 trees.

The subdivision is into eight paddocks with an equipped bore based trough watering system, a workable central set of cattle yards and even one paddock that has fox proof fencing as the vendors for a time conducted a free range egg laying enterprise.

The homestead is a comfortable, if older style weatherboard, with three bedrooms and one bathroom with spacious living and dining spaces, a country style kitchen with modern appliances and services including a wood fire and a split system for heating and cooling.

There is a 5kw solar panel system as well as a spa, pizza oven, a feed and tack room providing the choice to run a pony or two.

The property has also regularly run about ten cows and calves.

There is also substantial and usable farm shedding including two hay or machinery sheds including one with a concrete floor.

A quite new garage, tractor and machinery shed with a carport at one end measuring ten metres by ten metres and as one of the vendors is a plumber this building provides a very useful workshop for a trades and storage purpose.

It also has a two vehicle carport at one end.

The vendors, a young couple who have worked to bring Cushen Farm up to its current level and presentation, say that they have picked out the best site for the construction of a new quality home on the property.

So they have obtained from the Macedon Ranges Shire a residential building permit for this planned project which has about eighteen months of currency on the permit with the new owner having this option to pursue if they wish.

Rodwells Ruralco Property selling agent Jeanette Laffan says that the vendors are considering their options for a new rural property or even a larger farm holding hence they are submitting this property for private sale.

” With its location under an hour from the City, with the Melbourne Airport even closer Cushen Farm offers attractive perspectives over the local rural landform with a lot of quality work done so that it presents very well.

“The proximity to Romsey, almost all the way by bitumen road, means that all township services or a community or sporting involvement is close at hand.

“Being adjoined by large scale farms, with its own appealing land forms Cushen Farm at 55 Cushens Lane Springfield via Romsey offers all the peace and quiet that is a key factor sought by all those that aspire to live comfortably and productively in a convenient rural location” Jeanette Laffan says
