IT’S ‘auction day’ this Saturday, February 10 for a small rural property, ideally located between Leongatha and the ‘it’ place of today, Meeniyan that has much to recommend it.
Located at 6 Minns Road Koonwarra, it boasts almost 10 acres of productive land, a nice older style farm house, plenty of shedding, great fencing, water reserves and more.
The property is being sold by agents in conjunction Alex Scott and Staff and SEJ Real Estate at 12 noon.
One of the agents at Alex Scott in Leongatha, Alan Steenholdt, is enthusiastic about the property.
“I’m a renovator myself so I see the potential in the house but the block itself is an excellent one as well. It’s good country, nicely undulating and you don’t get many around the 10 acre mark.
“You’ll see the smaller rural allotments of one, two and three acres, but 10, not so much.
“It would really lend itself well to the sorts of more intensive agricultural pursuits you see across South Gippsland now or just retain it as a small grazing property.
“I really like the place myself and I’m sure there are others who will as well.”
As well as the 9.98 acres and the three bedroom “renovators’ delight” well located on the top of a lovely rise, the property features secure grazing paddocks with most of the fencing recently upgraded, a large open bay machinery shed, a disused dairy, cattle yards and loading race, water storage tanks plus a holding dam for stock and garden water.
Although modest the three bedroom weatherboard home oozes character of times gone by.
It is described by agents as “a great canvas to work with and put your own flare to it”.
The property is part of a deceased estate and agents have acknowledged they have clear instructions to sell. There has already been an extensive inspection program but the agents would only be too happy to organise a visit this week, or simply come along before the appointed hour this Saturday, February 10, prior to the auction time at 12 noon.
Could this be the bargain-priced, once in a lifetime chance to live off-the-grid between Koonwarra and Meeniyan?
