If you're wanting to downsize while still living a rural lifestyle which also provides a potential income, then this could be the perfect property for you. Not only can you continue to farm on a smaller scale but a well-appointed self contained flat offers accommodation possibilities.

Nestled in a sheltered spot, the spacious Lockwood home offers four bedrooms, two of which are part of a self-contained flat with an refurbished bathroom, full double glazing and a wood burner. Enjoying a rural outlook, the flat offers open plan living areas which are heated by a wood burner. Doors out onto a deck provide desirable indoor outdoor flow. This could be used as an extra income stream or it may appeal as an independent living option for an elderly relative.

Fitted with quality appliances and ample bench space, the thoroughly modern kitchen is sure to delight the cook of the family. Next to the kitchen is the light, bright dining area which also flows into the lounge where a large wood burner ensures cosiness on cooler nights. Both spacious living areas boast dual access to the inviting rural landscape via large sliding doors.The generous master bedroom not only has a lovely ensuite with a bath but that popular 'must-have' - a roomy walk-in wardrobe. As with the main living areas, large doors open out on to the deck. Connecting the main house with the flat is a large room which is currently being used as a rumpus room.

Outside, there's more than enough on offer to keep any downsizing farmer happy with 24.03 Ha of fertilised, mixed contour paddocks. Deer sheds have been converted to cattle yards and there is a large woodshed along with a half round haybarn . In addition, there's a bore and a pump shed. A well-maintained garden has a chance to thrive in this very sheltered location. A single garage and a carport complete the outside offerings.Being close to the new National Equestrian Centre and the CBD, in addition to being within minutes of the saleyards, add to the desirability of this property.
