Outstanding 4.1acre Block - Opportunity Choices
There are three exciting ways to view the purchase of this property.
Either could provide you with a fulfilling way to establish the property of your dreams in an undeniably brilliant location!
The property consists of a sensational 1.67ha/4.1ac block of land, a recent multi-functional shed set-up and original 3 bedroom home.
Carefully established freehold lots aren't easy to find, and this one is the product of a lot of earlier scoping and hard work that's provided a 50% covering of established trees that form a bird-filled canopy over the block.
Shadows of the original house area gardens include diligently stacked stone retaining walls, specimen plantings of various shrubs and interesting pathways. Sometime back in the late 70's or early 80's a selection of ornamental conifers and mixed variety trees were planted that now provide a forest-like feel to the mid-block sections of the property. The rear open bore/dam paddock at the rear of the block is ideal for livestock, especially ponies. The Murrumbateman Common is only a short pedestrian distance away, so you can keep your pony on-block and not need to float-up to go for a meaningful ride.
Another attractive feature of the block is its topography that provides visual separation between the elevated house site and the rear sections of the property. This means that if you could build a 2nd north-facing dwelling on the block, you wouldn't have immediate line-of-sight between the 2 dwellings. There's simple vehicle access to the block's rear sections from the property's entry gate.
The 12m x 7m shed is configured as 2 covered bays for horse floats, plus 2 enclosed bays with over-height that are ideal for tack/feed or utility storage.
The 187m 3-4 bedroom home has plenty of well-proportioned living areas that include a formal lounge with separate dining room, large family meals room plus a rumpus.
Your first purchase perspective involves maintaining the property under its existing tenancy arrangement to provide a rental income stream until you are ready to move onto the property yourself. This is a first-class way of securing your Murrumbateman property at today's prices, but not be under any influencing timeframes to move.
The second purchase selection is where you routinely take up residence or just move in.
This method would permit you to appreciate the property's cushioned atmospherics and seasonal orientation before launching into any upgrades. The current home could provide you with foundation elements for renovation works that would save both time and money.
Option 3 would involve the complete replacement of the existing home. The current elevated home site provides an ideal north-facing position to build a modern open-fronted home with forward entertaining decks and below level garaging amongst the existing trees.
Essentially this is a well-established property with a good mix of country lifestyle features. The property's centred attraction is its fabulous rural block that provides you with a broad range of residential choices, in addition to strong degrees of shelter and privacy.
