Ultimate Country Property On Tarago River with State Forest Boundary
Situated atop a rise offering magnificent views and bordering State Forest plus the Tarago River, this super farm of 87 acres offers quality heavy carrying capacity and plentiful water supply including 2 spring fed streams. Neerim benefits from average rainfall of 1162 mm or 46 “and is located an easy 1 ½ hrs or 116 km into Melbourne CBD. An impressive long and gently winding gravel driveway, recently graded and rolled leads you from the road to the home at the crest of the property. There is a further good internal all - season track within the property linking all areas of the farm.
The 87 acres comprises 76 acres of pasture over 5 paddocks with approx. 11 acres of natural bushland offering shelter to local flora and fauna. Concrete stock troughs are fed by reticulated water supply and the fencing is in excellent order and offers laneway access to 10 paddocks with electric wire. A stunning unique rocky outcrop offers the perfect backdrop to stunning mountain views towards Tarago Reservoir and the Bunyip State Forest. Trout and freshwater crayfish and yabbies are plentiful and while the farm currently carries beef cattle, the rich land and reliable rainfall also offers scope for colder climate fruit production, sheep, goats or alpacas. For bike and horse lovers there is easy access for riding into the State Forest trails which border the farm.
The comfortable Federation style BV home is sited in an optimum spot to enjoy the views with a protective veranda at the front elevation. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious walk in pantry off the timber kitchen and a spacious living room enjoying views from multiple angles. A roomy laundry/mud room is located off the large under roof line parking area and is the perfect spot to store your boots and coats.
Outside there is a modern colorbond machinery shed/workshop comprising 2 open bays and 2 closed bays with roller doors, concrete floor and power/water connected. A further workshop/shed closer to the house completes the farm shedding. Cattle yards with a crush and ramp and dog kennel yards are in place.
