144 Leane Road, known as “Fairfield,” is a fantastic property, a mountainside slice of luxury which promises all the splendour and utility an owner might expect from country living.
It is a rare opportunity, premier grazing country typically tightly held in the Mount Jagged region. Spread across roughly 500 acres, Fairfield has a gentler slope than might be expected for a home embedded in a mountain, the angle not so steep as to make traversal difficult, whilst allowing for appreciation of the sweeping grassy hills pulling away below, and the water gathering in ebbing creeks and placid lakes in the depressions.
The property consists of two titles, either of which would be desirable purchases in their own right. The largest, the homestead, is spread across approximately 350 acres, and represents grand, contemporary living.
The exterior of the homestead is magnificent, multi-levelled, and comprised of soft blues which provide pleasant contrast with the surrounding green. The homestead contains four bedrooms, four bathrooms, numerous large living areas, and a French Provincial kitchen.
The interior decor is modern, but not to the point of contradicting its natural surroundings. It is imbued with rustic charm, and the walls are apertured by as many windows as possible, to allow for the fantastic rural views to be appreciated from any part of the house.
The remaining 150 acres consist of shedding for dairy, hay & implements and a spacious, rustic cottage. The possibilities created by this second title are many; agricultural, rental or redevelopment opportunities included.
It is the agricultural opportunities which have been taken advantage of by previous lucky owners. Fairfield has been home to thriving dairy enterprise, featuring 156 milkers, 57 dries and 101 heifers, and to quality effect – the produce of Fairfield has received Milk Quality Awards in 2010/2011, 2012/2013, 2014/2015 and 2016. An additional accolade received is Johne’s Beef Assurance Score of 7.
Even ignoring the extensive practical utility, Fairfield is an amazing home, its scale breathtaking, its views magnificent, its interiors luxurious. Fairfield represents the apex of country living, and is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for prospective buyers.
The two titles contained in 44 Leane Road are on sale for $2.95 million, and are being represented by Ross Coleman of Ollwitz & Partners Real Estate.
