435 Old South Head Road, EXETER
Approx. 140 acres of prime rural asset – significant value add infrastructure
The Southern Highlands dream includes a beautiful country home and picture-perfect acreage. This home on approx. 140 acres, which seems to have been plucked from Vermont USA, epitomises that dream. The property, once a stud for thoroughbred horses, is now a working property for grass fed cattle. A winding tree-lined driveway passes clusters of horse shelters on its way to the graceful home, with magnificent interiors by Walter Herman, separate winter and summer living and dining rooms, working fireplaces throughout and extensive views.
The home, which was featured in Vogue Living, retains the sophistication of early 20th century architecture – high ceilings, picture rails and wall mouldings. Banks of elegant French windows overlook the sweeping lawns that surround the home.
The media room features high ceilings, dentil cornices and a limestone mantle surrounds its fireplace, which is set in a stone feature wall.
The kitchen is built around a white marble island and features a dual country oven for entertaining.
Comfort is controlled by reverse cycle air-conditioning.
A dedicated BBQ cabana and entertaining area provide for the joy of outdoor living.
Approx. 6 dams and reticulated water feed all paddocks from the bore (approx. 1200 liters per hour), approx. 2 water tanks.
There is an approx. 3 bay hayshed, a large approx. 4 bay semi-trailer and equipment shed, a large workshop and a large hay pen. The stud currently runs approx. 69 head of breeding cows and approx. 25 with calf at foot. It also runs a year-round steer fattening programme of approx. 50 head of steers.
All paddocks are bounded by electric fencing. Post and rail fencing around all homestead and entrances. Boundary and inbound fences are all new.
The farm is equipped with 2 purpose-built horse washing bays, rain and bore water to all stables with back up and post and rail fencing, as well as no scratch Western fencing for horse’s safety. There is an approx. 8 bay horse stable and training ring (indoor round yard) as well as manager’s room for horses. The property’s approx. 8 dedicated horse paddocks include horse shedding and reticulated water. The property was originally developed to home train and spell thoroughbred racehorses.
