Property Description

Rural Lifestyle with Home Business Opportunity

Opportunities abound with this unique 20 acre lifestyle property situated at Ecklin South in south-west Victoria. It is currently run as an alpaca farm and the Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill, established by the current owners in 2015. The owners have outgrown the property due to the success of their enterprise and will re-establish their business in regional Victoria so it is now available for the next purchaser(s) with vision.

Built in 2020, the stylish eco-friendly Colorbond home overlooks beautiful gum trees and surrounding farm land with an enviable northerly aspect. The home offers a spectacular living space with open plan kitchen, living, dining and a master bedroom and bathroom under the vaulted ceiling. The entire home exudes a welcoming, light-filled ambience with a Skandi-styled interior. It has been built with a 6.8 star energy rating with a 12.5 BAL rating and features UPVC double glazed windows, concrete floors for thermal efficiency and 3 kilowatt solar power and hot-water system.

Meanwhile, the original 2 bedroom home on the property is solid and secure whilst still in need of some renovation (STCA). Power and water are still connected and it has a reverse cycle air conditioner and woodheater. This presents an ideal opportunity for someone to explore the Airbnb/farmstay possibilities that are becoming so much in demand in regional tourism.

The property also offers shedding for every need including a 21m x 9m fully lined industrial shed with concrete floor, 40amp power supply completely separate to the residence and in addition there is a disused concrete dairy, perfect maybe for horse stables and tack room whilst a machinery and hay shed complete the list.

The land is fenced into 13 paddocks with mainly new fencing and water is supplied by a bore. Meanwhile, rainwater storage in excess of 100,000 litres supplies both the houses and shedding/workshop. An established orchard with apples, plums, apricots, pear and fig trees could be another road-side earner for a motivated buyer. The farmland would also be of possible interest to nearby farmers on a lease/agistment basis.

1580 Cobden-Warrnambool Road, Ecklin South is a must for someone seeking a quirky and unconventional treechange. It has the potential for another home-based business as well as offering an amazing lifestyle for someone wishing to experience rural living.

Its proximity to the Great Ocean Road, the coastal towns of Port Campbell and Peterborough, the booming tourist destination of Timboon with the renowned 12 Apostles Artisan Food Trail and the soon-to-be completed Rail Trail connecting Camperdown, Cobden and Timboon with Port Campbell and the Great Ocean Walk, combine to provide an abundance of reasons to make the move today!
