Property For Sale

“WATERFALL CREEK”

149 Waterfall Creek Rd, Tallangatta Valley, Victoria, Australia

For Private Sale - $1.65M

Perfect property and home for a range of interests. Horses, flying, hospitality, livestock production, rural lifestyle living. Moderate income from several sources (currently run as a B&B, and Horse Retirement/agistment property).

Architect designed solar passive stabilised rammed earth home, fully double glazed and powered by a large stand-alone hybrid electricity system. 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, semi commercial kitchen with gas and wood stove. Stunning open plan living space with cathedral ceiling. Floor to ceiling windows. Spectacular views. Landscaped low maintenance gardens with many well-established trees. Undercover parking for four vehicles.

For the aviation minded, there is a 400 metre graded grass runway with 2% slope and a fully enclosed 40 x 30 foot hangar.

Water is THE big feature of this property. There is a permanent creek running the full length of the property (with waterfall!) and is supplemented by several permanent productive spring fed dams. A permeant spring fed well with solar pump supplies domestic water. The creek water runs a micro-hydro generator and combined with a solar array, all the property electricity needs are met.

Firewood in abundance! Two wood heaters in the house provide winter warmth, and supplements to two 400 litre solar hot water systems.

The property features remnant and planted native vegetation corridors and shelter belts.

"Waterfall Creek" has been farmed organically for over 20 years using dolomite, RPR and composted chook manure for fertilizer. There are 17 well fenced paddocks, and an ongoing pasture improvement program. Most paddocks have stock troughs as well as dams.

Large orchard with 40+ fruit trees.

Excellent shedding, aircraft hangar and airstrip. Round yard for horse training, and several paddock paradise feed and movement tracks set up for horses.

This is a superb property and is priced to include much of the machinery used here - including a MF 165 tractor and a variety of suitable and useful implements.
