Lifestyle & Income Potential Package

Offering an opportunity for a hills lifestyle with options to pursue pastimes and interests, also with business potential for the astute, this property of almost 30 acres is on the market after being held in the same well known family of nurserymen over generations. Arriving at this bush hideaway just a few minutes from the township of Uraidla, the heart of the property is nestled at the bottom of the gully alongside a creek and a dam surrounded by garden. With countless features, now is the time for a new generation to consider the potential to value-add or create new and reap the rewards.

The three bedroom home with multiple living spaces has a welcoming feel. Surrounded by garden the outlook is lovely. The kitchen and dining area boast a sunny northerly aspect overlooking a paved terrace and lawn area. A separate cabin offers a space to retreat and with a little work could be configured as a lovely studio. The garden is filled with camellias and plants, some rare, which have been collected by the family over years. The garden below the house has also been the venue for a family wedding ceremony with roses and box hedging perfect on the day.

Space for pets and animals, the numerous sheds may also appeal to collectors, hobbyists or market traders. The horse float, caravan and Winnebago can be safely undercover when at home. Explore the possibilities of the potential of the large levelled area for an arena or add a marquee for an event.

Take a short drive into Uraidla for necessities from the Bakery and enjoy the lovely country pub feel of the Uraidla Hotel or a pizza from Lost in the Forest. Local produce is available roadside in Summertown and Piccadilly while there is so much happening throughout the Hills. A trip to the city or suburbs is easy down Greenhill Road. For some, embrace a tree change, for those in the know seize the opportunity. This offering has the potential to be life changing.
