Rarely does a rural property with so many unique features, come onto the market so close to Sale.
A 25 square load bearing mud brick home is the centre piece of the property with veranda's around the entire house keeping the weather off the home providing protection all year round.
The house has 4 bedrooms with built-in robes, the master having a walk through robe with en-suite including a 2 person spa tub and separate toilet. There are two separate living areas in the house, the main living area large enough to house a billiard table and a double sided wood burning heater separates the family/dining room providing plenty of winter heating.
Polished Tasmanian Oak timber flooring throughout the house is striking, as well as being low maintenance, while timber cathedral ceilings in the living areas with stramit lining provides a stunning highlight along with excellent insulating qualities.
No expense has been spared in the building process with engineered load bearing steel rods being the foundation of the mud brick, which was laid by tradesmen with many years experience in the process. Copper piping only, has been used throughout the property which is a rarity this day and age, not to mention a costly exercise.
In the cooks domain there is a lovely vinyl wrap kitchen with pantry, slow combustion stove, gas/electric stove and more. Heating is via the solid fuel heater in the living room and also via heater panels fed from the combustion stove and there are also LPG batten points in the billiard room and family rooms for when the solid fuel heater is not in operation.
Outdoor entertaining takes centre stage with a mud brick timber and corrugated iron room measuring 9m x 6m with a veranda, pot belly stove, built-in 4 burner gas BBQ with wok burner, original design fire pit with stainless steel canopy and an LPG gas point for the cold nights entertaining.
Adding to this already massive list of impressive features is the 26 solar panels on the shed roof; a Daiken split system air conditioner and 2 x 20,000 gallon water tanks.
The land component comprises 30 acres with 2 main paddocks, 2 dams and troughs in each paddock feed via a 20,000 gallon fresh water tank, with excellent electric fencing and a good set of stock yards with a crush. There is also a very handy 1 mega litre pumping permit from the Wellington main drain with a 50mm ring main for stock and gardens.
Shedding on the property is enormous, with a reconstructed 100 year-old wool store with Oregon trusses measuring 30m x 10m with an attached 7m wide carport the full length of the wool store. There is also a fully self contained 2 bedroom flat at the eastern end of the old wool store, also with an LPG outlet. Other shedding consists of a 20m x 6m hay shed, a 25m x 6m machinery shed and various other chook and animal shedding.
For families the Cobains Primary School is just down the road and the school bus to Sale runs past the front gate. Other attributes of the are include the Port of Sale, Sale racecourse, Greyhound racing track, Polo Cross ground plus much more.
