In ‘Glenstrae’ we have a pearl of a property, located at Upton Hill at the lower end of the Strathbogie Ranges, only 10 minutes off the Hume Freeway and 1.5 hours from Melbourne, with only its third owner since selection in the 1880’s.
Our Vendors John and Jean McGregor bought ’Glenstrae’ in 1984 as a weekender, but soon fell in love with the place so much that in May 1986 they left employment in Pakenham and shifted with their two young boys to a tin shed and two paddocks.
Thirty busy years later the 230.6 Ha property (570 acres approx. in 2 titles) includes approximately 200 acres of natural bush with abundant wildlife and a natural 100 metre deep gorge and amphitheatre, 17 paddocks with excellent fertilizer history, numerous tree plots, 12 dams, 3 creeks, 11.6 Meg water right plus a separate licenced S&D bore supplying beautiful water. Magnificent sheep and cattle yards. The shedding is plentiful; 64’ x 40’ shed with power and a 40’ x 35’ lock-up shed with workshop, concrete floor and single phase power. There are 3 dwellings with natural beauty and views that literally go on forever.
The main homestead is weatherboard with wide verandahs and features a large lounge/dining area with combustion heating and split-system air-conditioning. The timber kitchen/family area has a slate floor and features a combustion stove (HW), LPG gas cooktop and wall oven. A floating timber floor hallway leads to the bedrooms, bathroom and laundry.
The second dwelling is a lovely two bedroom cottage in bush surrounds. The third is a two bedroom granny flat with carport.
But in life, “Nothing Lasts Forever” and so it is that the time has come for the McGregors of Glenstrae to start a new phase of their lives and relinquish their farming interest.
With a balance of about two thirds grazing area and one third bushland, “Glenstrae” can be anything you want. Either your own private retreat, or for the right someone there could be still much to do. The property location lends itself beautifully to tourism development with stunning views and the possibility of accommodation development S.T.C.A. and there is the most stunning house site, truly worthy of a Grand Design.
Nestled between a State Flora & Fauna Reserve, two well established vineyards (Elgo’s and Fowles), two grazing properties and a free range poultry layer enterprise, careful planning has maintained ‘Glenstrae’ as an intensely private location. This is a ‘Bushlovers’ heaven with ‘Wallaby Gully’ 330 acre Native Flora & Fauna Reserve through the fence, giving 500 acres (approx.) to explore.
Only 10 minutes off the Hume Freeway, an easy drive can put you on the train for a Melbourne commute or you can be on the Bolte Bridge without seeing a traffic light. School buses for both Euroa and Seymour are just around the corner.
So, are you the right someone?
