Nestled in the Barham River Valley on 60 acres this property holds a prime position in the valley as its one of very few with expansive open areas and flat acreage allowing the main house and separate self-contained cottage to capture sunshine throughout the day. The traditional features of this country style residence with established gardens, huge creek fed dam, array of farm animals roaming about and abundant birdlife completing the most tranquil picturesque setting.
The homestead has operated as a successful bed and breakfast for many years, delighting both international and domestic guests seeking an authentic farm retreat. The current owners have a small flock of sheep and utilise shearing contractors annually to remove the woolly coats in the large timber shearing shed with separate road access off the Barham River Road. If wool and sheep are not your passion it is easy to let your imagination fly envisaging alternative purposes for this rustic authentic building; gorgeous wedding scenes, yoga retreats, art workshops … Whilst the buildings require attention, there really is great scope for someone with creativity and vision!
The property has 5 small creeks with approximately 25 acres of the land currently utilised for farming and the remaining acres merging with the natural bush. Set in the magnificent valley with the Barham River skirting along the edge of the road it’s a short 10 minute scenic drive to the bustling township of Apollo Bay. The town is well resourced with a P-12 school, hospital, kindergarten, numerous sporting clubs, shops and cafes.
