THERE is something special about this 2.83-hectare property at 185 Dalyston-Glen Forbes Road, Dalyston that sparks the imagination, conveniently located for country living, six minutes’ drive to the beach and the bustling hub of Wonthaggi.

And there is something special about how it will go to auction at 2pm on Saturday, April 18, with Stockdale and Leggo hosting one of the region’s first fully online, live auctions.

Stockdale and Leggo Phillip Island, Kooweerup and Hastings director Adam Schutz said the live online auction process would be as near to the real thing as possible.

Interested parties, including those who want to see how the system works, can register online and participate as if the auction was taking place on the property. They will be able to view bidding increments and see the current live bid, and have live interaction with the auctioneer who can decide whether to accept or reject bids.

Afterwards, the successful bidder and agent will digitally sign contracts which are then emailed to all parties. The buyer can even choose to use a fully online conveyancing service to complete the purchase.

Adam said Stockdale and Leggo was already moving to online systems before the COVID-19 outbreak, and only needed to make minor changes to make the auction process completely online.

Upon entering this property’s electric gates, you can just hear the family gatherings under the lovely gum trees. With a large, three-bay machinery shed, loose boxes in the paddocks and multiple other functional buildings, one can only start to imagine the possibilities of building a lifestyle property, country retreat or farm stay.

There’s a lovely homely feel throughout, with a country kitchen, modern appliances, and open plan living. This country home allows for entertaining too as the living area flows into a huge family space with lots of light. A mix of tiles, carpet, and floorboards gives warmth to this home that has a lovely modern bathroom and functional laundry space. Out the back you can send your teen, granny or significant other into a well-designed one bedroom flat.

The Bass Coast area has become a popular tourist destination with Melbourne just 90 minutes up the South Gippsland Freeway plus Phillip Island and Inverloch both just 20 minutes away.

There are many options for this property as you could tap into the tourism market with a home business or create your perfect hobby farm, this is certainly worth considering.

Full of possibility and purpose, this property has a little bit of everything.
