77 acres of stunning “big sky” views that will leave you breathless!
1227 Wellington Road, HIGHLAND VALLEY SA 5255
Ideal work from home, beautifully situated, light airy residence on a well developed 71 acre hobby farm less than 45 minutes from Adelaide CBD.
The farm is situated on the bitumen road running between Wistow and Woodchester; only 10 minutes and 11 kilometres from Mt Barker, 13km from the freeway, 17km from Strathalbyn.
The house, sheltered by trees, and below the top of the hill, looks out easterly over a vast view across the River Murray valley. It is positioned to take advantage of this view, and the morning sun. Inside the house is light, airy and welcoming, with walls which welcome pictures. There is a large eating, communal living area, and there are 4 bedrooms/offices, 2 separate toilets and a shower. At the back of the house there are raised garden beds, whilst at the front a verandah runs across the length of the house to make a sheltered sitting area. Nearby there is a chook enclosure and a garden shed.
A short distance behind the house are 2 enormous high sheds, one of which doubles as a shearing shed. Both these sheds have large roofs which double as rainwater catchments for the farm which has 3 dams and 62,000 gallons of rainwater tank capacity. The annual rainfall varies around 440 millimetres.
The farm itself can support 100 sheep, or 20 breeding cattle during most years. It is well fenced, supported by electric fencing run by energisers situated in the sheds. It is divided into 5 paddocks which have been laid out so that stock may be moved from one paddock into each one of the other paddocks. There is a central laneway which takes the stock to very substantial yards and loading ramp, suitable for both sheep and cattle.
The current owners (for the past 40 years) have planted patches of native vegetation, and allowed regeneration of other areas, which give the stock shade and shelter, and are encouraging the return of native animals such as echidnas and lizards, and the return of native birds such as blue wrens and honeyeaters.
For prospective owners looking for a holding ready to be lived in and stocked immediately, this is ideal.
