Nillahcootie dreaming... Your new country home on 8 acres in a truly amazing setting!
If you are quick and secure this lovely property you will be able to enjoy taking a dip in beautiful Lake Nillahcootie this summer. Or maybe you want to take your boat out and catch some fish for dinner. Come home to chill out on the vine covered verandah with a nice cold beverage and watch the sun set behind the Strathbogie Ranges. Does this sound like the country life you have been dreaming about?
This really is a remarkable part of the world. So peaceful yet only 15 minutes from the booming regional town of Mansfield and about 30 minutes to the Hume Freeway and Benalla.
A modern take on the traditional Australian homestead, the charming low maintenance home is not huge but that is part of its appeal. The versatile floorplan offers the potential for dual living, with a self-contained guest wing for extended family or even paying guests. We love the wide verandahs that wrap around the house, designed with the perfect solar aspect to provide shade in summer and allow the winter sun to stream in and warm the living areas. There's also 2 reverse cycle air-conditioners and a lovely wood fire. A grid connected solar system helps minimise power bills and there's over 75,000 litres of rainwater storage so you don't need to worry about water either.
And talking about water, there's a beautiful swimming spot a few minutes away on Lake Nillahcootie...and plenty of fish to catch too! Children can catch the bus to school in either Mansfield or Benalla. And keep their ponies and other four legged friends in the 3 paddocks, all with established trees for shade and shelter. There's a nice big dam in one paddock with supplies water to automatic troughs in the other two paddocks. There's also a hay shed with tack & feed room, as well as the obligatory wood shed. Cattle and sheep roaming the neighbouring farms enhance the bucolic bliss!
