An extremely rare, once in a lifetime opportunity now exists to secure this amazing and breathtaking country property. Comprising a total of 84.45 Ha or 208.6 Acres, in 2 titles, of some of the most picturesque and unique land west of Melbourne. The land is varied and spectacular, offering a variety of visual delights. Australian Blockbuster film, ‘Ned Kelly’ staring Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush was partially filmed on this land and the hut used in the film is still present today. Other Australian Films such as, ’Flying Doctors’ have enjoyed filming on this remarkably unique and spectacular backdrop landscape. There are 3 homes on the property. The original homestead is an older weatherboard home and is currently leased. The main home is brick veneer and has been tastefully renovated. It includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, study/home office, modern kitchen and many comforts to make country life preferable. The third residence is a fully self contained 1 bedroom home that is also modern and in good condition. There are several sheds on the property including a 14m x 12m lockup shed, an 18m x 6m open fronted shed and an 18m x 15m hayshed. There is 40,000 gallons of tank water storage, 3 septic systems and new fencing around the property. There are 6 main paddocks that are all securely fenced. The main residence has been well located in an elevated position and the large sundeck offers breathtaking views to the west, particularly stunning sunsets across the Bacchus Marsh Valley, Market Gardens and Famous Avenue of Honour. There is a Telstra Tower on the South Eastern tip of the property, adjoining the Old Western Highway, that has a permanent lease currently returning $25,000 per annum and is indexed for annual increases. There are approx 150 acres of Farming/Cropping/Grazing Land plus a balance of undulating semi bush covered land adjoining the Bullmallee Forest in Long Forest Road. With a 29 Mega litre water right that is pipe fed to the property, the river flats could also be used as market gardens. There is also an additional 20 Mega litre pumping right from the Bore on the property. This is in addition to over 2 klms of Coimadai Creek frontage that gently meanders through the western boundary. Located only 50 klms from Melbourne and with travelling time via the recently ungraded Western Freeway now less than 40 minutes, it is loaded with future potential. There is road frontage to Bulldog lane, Old Western Highway and Long Forest Road. With Rural Living and Small Acreage Subdivisions adjoining the property to the North and West, and the Western Growth corridor, Green Wedge Zone only 5 klms away, the future here looks very bright. The successful Hopetoun Park Estate is also less than 5 klms away. Given the amount of Investment and development currently underway and planned over the next 20 years in and around Melton and Bacchus Marsh, this must be something worth careful consideration.
