Keatings Real Estate’s John Keating said the property was a rare find on the market and would suit a special buyer.
“This is an exceptional and rare opportunity to purchase a unique and productive small farming property,” he said.
Mr Keating said it was “most unusual” to have three separate character homes on one property with three, four and five bedrooms plus studies and living areas.
One of the houses on the property.
“The sale offers an opportunity that would not be allowed under current planning rules, which prohibit the building of more than one house on a block,” he said.
The property with three houses clustered in a treed environment was ideal for families or friends wanting to stay close together or those with generational living needs.
“There is also the option of knocking a house down and replacing it with a modern dream home,” Mr Keating said.
The property was also perfect for a bed and breakfast business or holiday house accommodation.
The houses are filled with character and charm.
In the heart of the Macedon Ranges, the block is suited to farming with its volcanic soil, quality fencing, four dams, eight paddocks, sheds and bore water attached to the houses and troughs.
“It’s not far from Hanging Rock and has beautiful views of the Rock, Mt Macedon and Camels Hump,” Mr Keating said.
Awesome views of Hanging Rock are appreciated from the property.
The sellers are two separate families who had lived at the property for more than 33 years.
“They are living in two houses and leasing out the third,” Mr Keating said.
Its previous owners were three parties who built a house each and shared the running of the farm.
The property had been on the market for two weeks and generated interest from local and Melbourne buyers.
“Most buyers are looking at it from an investment perspective, to run the farm and rent out the houses,” Mr Keating said.
