THERE’S simply no need for hype where the auction of a 68 hectare (169 acre) farming property, at 270 Phillip Island Road, San Remo is concerned.
The selling agents Alex Scott and Staff are both honoured and delighted to be handling the sale of the property for a family that has been with the firm for 100 years, and the vendors have a genuine reason for wanting to finally pass the property on.
“They would have been cattle clients for our firm’s founder, Alex Scott, back in the day and we’ve been able to continue that association for the best part of 100 years,” said selling agent, Greg Price, a licensed estate agent and also the present-day chairman of Alex Scott.
“That’s quite something.
“So, it is with great pleasure that we are able to offer this superbly located property and from the level of interest we have received to date, we are very hopeful of a good result for the family,”
Mr Price said the auction on Saturday, November 2 of the Melbourne Cup Long Weekend, would be the first time in over 100 years that the 169-acre property, which runs right down to Westernport Bay, had been offered.
“It was known as Amy Simpson’s farm for many years before it was passed on to Jim McFee and it has been in the same family all those years, and of course they’re reluctant to sell it but the time has come.
“It’s nicely elevated property with a gentle undulation running down to the bay. We’ve put together a terrific video, which you can see online, which highlights the glorious 180 degree views of the hills, a nice little sandy beach and the water from the Waterline area around to French Island and Churchill Island.
“There’s the original, old farm house badly in need of renovation or the new owners might like to build a new home.”
Subject to planning approval, there are many fine locations for a new home taking full advantage of the rural surrounds and incredible sea views.
“We’d expect it to sell for $20,000 an acre and upwards especially given that the 177-acre property next door sold for $25,000 an acre in 2016. This is a unique area and we weren’t at all surprised by the interest we have received to date.”
Visitors to Phillip Island will certainly have noticed this property as they drive past, admiring the panoramic views, down to the 843 metres of bay frontage and out across the water.
Here you’ll find easy access to all paddocks, a good set of stock yards, four dams, town water and good shedding.
The auction will be held on site at 2pm on Saturday, November 2. For further details contact Alex Scott & Staff, 113A Thompson Avenue, Cowes, phone (03) 5952 2633 or selling agents Greg Price 0419 337 441 and Brian Silver 0407 347 509
