Create your own version of the 'good life' on this idyllic 21 acre (approx.) Mornington property, comprising lush farmland with fenced paddocks, a spring-fed dam, a new barn, a renovated four-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by established gardens, plus a unique self-contained residence converted from a 'red rattler' train.
Located in the prized Mornington racecourse precinct, and stretching to Balcombe Creek, the 'green wedge' zoned property, comprising 16 fenced paddocks with water troughs and sheds is perfect for equestrian or horticultural use. A spring-fed dam provides ample water for the farm and residences, while an impressive, newly constructed barn has triple remote roller doors, one extra high for boat or truck storage, a remote rear access roller door, and a mezzanine level.
Accessed from the Moorooduc Highway service road a long driveway leads to a turning circle beside the charming homestead-style single-level 4-bedroom timber home, which is surrounded by a lovely garden setting, including a superb wisteria-draped pergola above the rear undercover alfresco zone. A lush lawn with a miniature horse stable (or cubby/shed), and the 'Taj Mahal' of chicken coops complete the picture. Recently renovated, the classic 1960s-built farmhouse features engineered oak flooring, an open plan living/family room with a wood fireplace, and the central kitchen has a marble-topped island bench/breakfast bar, a pressed metal splashback, and is fitted with quality appliances including an electric free-standing stove. The main bedroom has lovely garden outlooks through a multi-paned window, a walk-in robe and ensuite, and there is a gleaming newly renovated main bathroom. Newly carpeted, two of the additional good-sized bedrooms have built-in robes, while the third (or home office/study) has its own entrance door.
Ideal for guest or short-stay accommodation, a converted 1940s 'red rattler' train is now a unique self-contained one-bedroom residence, set in a fully fenced yard complete with undercover alfresco deck. Retaining many of the train's character-filled original features including light fittings and doors, the layout includes a lounge area, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and even a unique laundry contained in the driver's compartment.
Additional features of this outstanding property, just a five-minute drive to Main Street and the coast, include 3-phase power, split system heating/cooling, and plenty of multi-use storage including triple carport, plus machinery shed/garage.
