This prized parcel is Zoned Rural Living with several excellent options for home sites to build on now or later (STCA). The orientation of the block is fantastic in that it allows for a highly desirable north facing solar passive design with great street appeal and the added benefit of a wonderful outlook over One Tree Hill. A beautiful Cypress lined boundary is already in place along the neighbouring fence at the rear providing both beauty and privacy plus most of the fencing is new. Excellent power supply is also readily accessible with 3 phase power available from either Mandurang Road or Nankervis Road.
The land offers a gently undulating slope that gradually falls away to Sheepwash Creek which is lined with majestic red gums and forms the western boundary of the property. The creek flats offer rich fertile deep loam soil and the property was once used as a Chinese market garden back in the 1800's making it an ideal site for a hobby viticulture or horticulture enterprise. Water supply consists of a 2.2 megalitre water right which is piped to the property providing a 30' head pressure which can run up to 8 large sprinklers under gravity alone. The bottom corner of the property would be an ideal spot for a dam which would further compliment the water supply.
