House for Sale
A Little Piece of History on 60 Acres
Property ID 2002515A much-loved family farm for over 30 years on 60 acres, located with sealed road access close to Hall Village and an easy commute to Canberra, offers new owners the chance to take on the rural lifestyle they dream of.
Tucked away behind the tree lined driveway sits the 4 bedroom plus study homestead. In original condition it has great bones for a renovation or possibly temporary accommodation whilst you build your new home or even an ideal rental or guest house - the options are endless!
Picturesque mountain views across the Brindabellas and mature gardens surround the home making it a truly tranquil country escape yet so close to the city.
The property is 60 acres of gently undulating red brown soil suitable for grazing or agriculture, ample water supply with bore and windmill pumping to 2 x holding tanks, then gravity fed to paddock troughs. The oversized open hay shed is very accessible, perfect for alternative uses such as keeping machinery, cars or used as animal shelter, also could easily be enclosed to become a large shed.
There are 4 large open paddocks with troughs and excellent fencing with laneway designed access, a stock yard and race adjacent to sealed access, and 2 dams protected by a windbreak of established trees on the western boundary.
For the equestrian enthusiasts there is a 5-bay stable block plus tack room. Alternatively, you could utilise as additional shedding or storage.
With a touch of nostalgia and an important part of the region's history, sited in the back paddock are the historic ruins of a family home from the 1800's (just most of the walls left, no floor or roof). Alexander Rochford, aged 22, arrived in Australia in 1863 from Bannow, County Wexford. He walked from Melbourne to Queanbeyan to join his brother John at Yarralumla working on the property of Irishman Terence A Murray. They conducted a small leased farm there. Alexander married Elizabeth Rolfe in 1872. By 1882 they moved with several children to Bedulluck near Hall and developed a farm, "Forest View", from virgin bush.
This property, 271 Kaveneys Road was part of the original "Forest View" property. Most of the walls are still standing today and it lends itself to potentially being rebuilt to be brought back to life as some type of outbuilding.
Whether you are after a lifestyle change or hobby farm, this property has much to offer.
