Be spellbound by the tranquility of El-Pida, a 15 hectare property, adjacent to the Astronomical Society of Victoria's "Leon Mow Dark Sky Site", approx 16km North of Heathcote. Set up your own telescope & binoculars or enjoy the clarity of the Southern Sky with your naked eye!
During the day you can tend the 600 Olive trees (200 Greek Kalamata table & 400 Italian oil variety olives) & 391 Shiraz grape vines (1654 clone). The 2013 harvest from 252 mature vines produced 380 bottles of shiraz. A drip irrigation system is in place with 2 x 6.5 HP Honda pumps - one on each of the 2 dams (approx 2meg each). A custom made "olive catcher" is available to make collecting the olives easier. The 40ft x 24ft lock-up shed, with power, is perfect to store your tractor, bikes or ride-on mower.
At the end of the day, relax in the surprisingly spacious 2 bedroom w/b home with open plan kitchen/meals/living with a/c & Coonarra, serviceable bathroom & large laundry or enjoy the views from the timber deck while your pizza cooks in the huge brick pizza oven capable of taking 8 pizzas at a time!
With some TLC you could turn this into a comfortable lifestyle property or you can keep it as a well equipped weekender- the choice is yours! Please call Fiona McClure to arrange an inspection 0428 804 266
