With a prized and visible Merricks address full of potential as a permanent or weekend country retreat on almost 10 acres, escape suburbia and give your family and friends a taste of clean rural living only moments from the foodies’ favourite Merricks general store, internationally awarded Stoniers Winery and the spectacular new Pt Leo Estate winery and sculpture park.
A truly coveted location on the Western Port coastline, this 9.24 acre (approx.) property bestows the quintessential Australian farm lifestyle complemented by a refurbished three-bedroom country house with gardens for fresh home-grown produce, a wetlands area teeming with birdlife and fenced paddocks for grazing.
For horse enthusiast, the property is also only a few hundred metres from the Merricks Pony Club and the start of the Red Hill-Merricks riding trail while a large workshed on the property could easily be converted into stables.
Behind a gated horseshoe driveway, the residence charms with polished timber floors, a cosy wood fire in the open plan living and meals area, a modern kitchen with timber benchtops and a north/west-facing deck to dine alfresco and toast the serenity while overlooking the rear of the property.
Beside the large workshed is an attached storage area while there is additional shedding for equipment, a double carport, rainwater tanks, chook shed, raised vegetable garden beds and a small orchard.
Little more than an hour from the city and seconds to quiet Merricks beach and the surf break at Pt Leo, go ahead and create your own idyllic peninsula lifestyle!
