HISTORIC FARMHOUSE AND SELF-SUFFICIENT SMALLHOLDING‘Cremona Hillside Farm’ is straight out of a page of English Country Living magazine- from the hefty granite stone walls of the original farmhouse with 4 oven wood fired AGA, through to the well-developed infrastructure of farm shedding.
Built in 1856 near natural springs and nestled into the slopes of the Eastern Peake of Mount Bolton, the five-bedroom family home has happily overseen rollicking children and grandchildren for generations. With secret attic room, library and dining room seating twenty, the home has also been a successful bed and breakfast where catering for shearers is easily done in the large registered kitchen.
There is abundant well-maintained shedding for the pheasants, duck and rare breeds of poultry as well as a modern machinery shed, an operational goat dairy and a fully equipped shearing shed.
A newly built barn houses a small farm shop, a large entertainment area and a loft which sleeps 12. There is a large cool room for butchering and an extra bathroom and toilet downstairs. Farm-stay and camping guests use this expansive space or camp in the grounds of a private chapel.
Granite out crops, a big orchard, a huge market garden, six dams, 114 acres, a constant bore, good fencing and animal shelters ensure that this property never runs out of water and can be redeveloped in many ways.
This property is only 20 minutes from the centre of Ballarat and current owners reluctantly offer their beloved home for sale because of illness.
