FEELS LIKE HOME | Historic homestead on 100 acres near Millthorpe | Photos, video


Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two garages – auction

AN IMPRESSIVE home combines with prime agricultural land to present an incredible opportunity to settle and grow in the Central West.

Sitting at 386 Pretty Plains Road, 4.5 kilometres outside of Millthorpe, is the blue ribbon property known as ‘Gleneagles’.

The farming property encompasses 101 acres of land and includes an 1880s homestead that blends historic charm with comfortable, modern country living.

The homestead has been thoughtfully renovated over the years, which is sure to take the pressure off the next owner. 

MAP: Where the property is located …

Multiple living and recreation areas can be found throughout the home.

Among the options are a living room, separate dining area off the kitchen, a sitting room, billiards room and a sunroom.

Large windows and french glass doors line most of these spaces, allowing a lot of natural light to flow into the home. 

The kitchen, which sits towards the centre of the home, has been updated.

It includes plenty of bench space, a dishwasher, good-sized pantry, a large Falcon stove with gas cooktop, dual fan forced and convection ovens and a utensil rack suspended from the ceiling.

Within the garden area is a two-bedroom, self-contained cottage that the current owners have used as bed and breakfast in the busy weekend tourist area.

Aesthetically, the kitchen has exposed beams overhead that are a nice reminder of the age of the home and pair well with the timber benchtops. 

There are four bedrooms located throughout the home, as well as an office.

The master bedrooms opens onto a veranda and includes built-in storage and an ensuite. 

Two bathrooms are positioned throughout the home, as well as a separate toilet. A laundry is also included in the home.

Among the other indoor inclusions are fireplaces, airconditioning, floorboards and carpet in some areas.

Outside, this property continues to impress. Sweeping verandas take in the beauty of the established gardens that surround the homestead.

A variety of trees can be found throughout the garden, including Elms, Ashes, Birches, Photinias, Irish Strawberries, Atlantic and Himalayan Cedars. 

Adjacent to the house is an in-ground salt water, chlorinated swimming pool and an astro turf tennis court, both of which can be enjoyed by the whole family and any guests that drop by.

Within the garden area is a two-bedroom, self-contained cottage that the current owners have used as bed and breakfast in the busy weekend tourist area.

This property also offers solar panels, 15,000 litres of rainwater storage, an orchard, vegetable garden, chook yard, a carport, various sheds, seven main grazing paddocks and three small holding paddocks. 

First National Real Estate Bowyer and Livermore agent James Walton said that this property is “on some of the best agricultural land in the Central West”, while the gardens, facilities and “unique” homestead can’t be ignored.

“Someone can walk straight in and have it fully operational tomorrow. It is all there,” he said. 

The property is being presented by First National Bowyer and Livermore and will go to auction on October 20.
