This picturesque and historic Peninsula property has all the makings of fine country estate. ‘Maroolaba’ was originally part of a 198 acre farm dating back to the late 1800s. Today the property is currently about 32.29 acres and features the original home which sits on a rise with views over paddocks across to Bass Strait south of St Andrews Beach.
The home is surrounded on three sides by a bullnose verandah and it reflects all of the appealing period qualities of the era in which it was built such as the wide shady verandah and high ceilings inside. The interior consists of a large living room with an open fire place, three bedrooms, and an appealing country kitchen displaying lovely polished timber floors. Two of the bedrooms feature panoramic views across to Bass Straight. An annex is attached to the house which houses a bathroom and laundry.
The current use of the property is the breeding of thoroughbred horses, and as such is perfectly set up for equine enthusiasts as there are stallion paddocks, eight stables, a round yard, crush, wash bay with electric pump, several undulating paddocks, 3 phase underground power, mains water with commercial tapping as well as bore water complete with a gravity fed tank. In addition there are a further 2 x 5,000 gallon water tanks at the rear of the feed shed. There is also a container in use as a second feed shed. The fences are all electrified with the stallion paddock having back up solar power. The property has 2 entrances making it possible to sub-let the equine section if required.
