"ORANA" BUNDALONG SOUTH - EQUIDISTANT WANGARATTA -YARRAWONGA & RUTHERGLEN
Quality rural/farm family lifestyle and ideal for farmer downsizing with income and business bonuses. The vendors who secured the 53 hectare (or 131 acre) freehold property, built their quality family home and developed the property have a desire to return to Queensland where they have family connections.
The property is located one kilometre west of the main Wangaratta to Yarrawonga Road with three main regional centres - Wangaratta and Yarrawonga both about twenty two kilometres distant with Rutherglen about fifteen kilometres to the north.
"Orana" will prove an ideal choice for a farmer wanting to downsize from a larger holding while continuing a reduced scale of rural or farm interests.
The quality rendered home built for the vendors by one of Wangaratta's highly regarded home builders about ten years ago has three bedrooms with a study, extensive open living areas an impressive modern kitchen, exemplery use of space throughout and all modern services.
It presents impeccably with a living area judged as 22 squares, plus there are substantial veranda and undercover alfresco areas for relaxing, taking in the ambiance, or ideal for socialising with visitors or family around the barbeque. There is scope under the main roof line for further internal living area.
It is adjoined by a substantial lawned and paddock area on which the vendors are currently running twenty ewes as effective lawnmowers as it has stock proof fencing.
The balance of the holding of 45 hectares (or 113 acres) has been share cropped in recent years by a neighbouring farmer, it is currently sown to Canola. The crop and sheep usually deliver an income share of $15,000 or more to the owners. The cropping arrangement can be continued at the option of the purchaser of the property, or with its level landform and productive red loam soils could suit a wide range of crop or alternative farming pursuits.
There is one large stock dam available while a reliable bore equipped with a windmill supplies drinking quality water which can be used as garden irrigation or it can top up the existing rainwater tank system in dry years at no cost.
Another feature of this property is the large, fifteen metre by nine metre (or 135 sqm) three bay steel machinery shed and workshop. There are three automated roller access doors while part of the shed has been fitted out with a mezzanine level and provides an accommodation facility for guest or family overflow hosting. Another unique feature is the four tonne capacity electro-hydraulic vehicle lift as the vendor as an interest in classic car restoration and servicing the family vehicles. In addition the rear of the shed benefits from an enclosed extension measuring fifteen by four metres with dirt floor and automated roller door, ideal for storage of equipment.
On the roof of this building is a five kilowatt solar panel array that provides a cost effective power supply plus a useful financial credit for the power generated and sold back to the grid. With all the facilities of a quality modern family home, income from the share crop arrangement and the high value shed infrastructure this property is a gem. No farm is complete without a enclosed chook house, vegetable garden (raised beds) and garden shed. "Orana" has these elements covered also.
A delight to inspect as the presentation of the home and the land area is outstanding.
