"Over-rated and overpriced by miles."

I knew the original owner for years, and got to hear all the ups and downs. The main problem is that the Marysville-Buxton Road lies almost entirely on a flood-plain, and the whole area is regularly flooded. In fact, unless the actual property contains some high ground it's unlikely the Council would issue building (and particularly septic-tank) permits.

It's some distance from even the modest facilities Marysville offers (or DID offer before the fires!), and EVERYTHING else is AT LEAST half an hour away (Alexandra). Not useful for access to schools or in emergencies like heart-attacks or snakebite.

Along with the remoteness, the fact that the property lies between two lots of mountains means that services like phone, tv, etc are practically non-existent.

I lived for 3 years in Marysville and a further 22 years off the Marysville-Narbethong Road, (on the other side of the hill from this property) and am familiar with the district. Life there suited me because 1. land was still cheap enough when I bought in (2.5 acres for $10,000)....,2.. I was a single man, and 3.... I'm something of a hermit.

The buxton-Marysville road is ONLY (and VERY) good for grazing. I think it's way too expensive for that.
