164 Grassmere-Hexham Road, Grassmere VIC
The house! The land! The sheds!
This eight year old home, sitting on about 73.5 acres, is certainly one to behold. Locally designed and constructed, it is unlike any others. The raked ceiling coupled with oversized double glazed windows provides enormous amounts of light throughout the entire home. From every room there is a tranquil view out to the peaceful countryside. A formal glass-filled entry greets guests and frames the views of the courtyard and farmland beyond. From here the home opens into a contemporary open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area showcasing the floor-to-ceiling windows - the jewel in the crown of this statement property. The kitchen has stone benchtops and a three-metre stone island bench with stainless steel Smeg appliances. A huge 3.4-metre stacker door opens onto the large undercover outdoor room. Specifically designed to capture the warmth from the sun on a winter's day, you can imagine yourself relaxing the days away in this area in both summer and winter. Cleverly zoned, the master bedroom with both a walk-in robe and en suite, along with a dedicated storage room, an excellent sized laundry with custom cabinetry and garage, lies at one end of the home. Two queen-sized bedrooms complete with built-ins, along with a purpose-built study with storage, a family bathroom, toilet plus a powder nook complete the other zone. The property has extensive shedding with a 29.6x12m two-stand, raised-board shearing shed with steel cattle and sheep yards. Another 9x18m lockable workshop is fully concreted with two-phase power and is used for storage and machinery works. Water is available via 70,000-litre rainwater tanks that service the house and shed, and bores facilitate stock and garden needs. The land component is well fenced and has some tree shelter. Leasing or agisting are options and the property would be ideal for a tradesman looking to run their business along with a lifestyle. Grassmere is a strong grazing and dairying area located 10km north of Warrnambool with a hall, church, primary school and a strong community. This property has everything the growing rural family desires and there will be plenty of options open to the new owners, whether they wish to use the whole amount of land themselves or agist some off. All in all this property is unlike any other in the current market and will serve its new owners brilliantly. With land prices increasing you'd be smart to secure this property while you can.
