224 DUCKPOND ROAD, Wellard
Fancy farming near the city?
2.93 ha/7.24 acres of farming land - great for crops or stock.
Freshly painted, air-conditioned 4 X 2 home plus very special out-buildings.
Separate lounge at the front of the home has wood look flooring, a picture window and sliding door overlooking the gardens and the lushness of the property.
The carpeted master bedroom is spacious and has an ensuite bathroom and walk-in-robe. The three minor bedrooms are all carpeted; there are built-in storage cupboards in the laundry and a double door linen store in the hall.
The main living area is overlooked by the kitchen with a pigeon-pair fridge and freezer included in the sale, a walk-in pantry and an access door from the double carport.
Patios on both the Western and Eastern side of the home provide several opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
The man cave/Party House or Pizza Hut is built with limestone bricks and has a kitchen, Pizza oven, cool room, wet bar and patio and has hosted parties, traditional cook-ups and could even make an alternative living area. Another structure is the studio, with running water, insulated, R/C air-con which has been used for a hairdressing salon but would also work as a teenager's accomodation, retreat, home office or hobby room. There is also a patio attached to this building. Apart from these two there is a huge workshop with 3 phase power and will delight the man of the family. As well as this workshop that is big enough to house a truck or caravan there is a lot of undercover hard stand for extra vehicles.
Talk about living off the land! The netted orchard has chooks living underneath the fruit trees - the list of fruit is amazing: several types of apple, figs, white and yellow nectarines, peach, apricot, mango, orange, lemon, mandarins, mulberry, avocado, pomegranate, almond, loquat, persimmon, carob tree, passion fruit, banana tree, grape vines and raspberries - all very productive. Currently sheep and horses graze in the paddocks: the fencing, the zoning and the fact that Kykuri is green all year makes it ideal for all stock. A tractor with a rotary hoe attachment, working platform with tow bar, a bucket on the front and a 3 point link on the back plus a ride-on mower are included in the price of this property.
The big rainwater tank services the home and the bore reticulates the garden and orchard.
Another amazing construction is the huge wind turbine that was erected to produce the property's electricity supply - this was never fully installed but would be a great opportunity if the new owners wanted to complete this project.
If you have a yen to farm but like city conveniences then this may suit your family. Definitely a "one off" property. Call to view.
