PLEASANT Place is an absolute dream.

For buyers hunting for an escape from the city to a relaxed country lifestyle, they may have to travel a long, long way to find a comparable property.

Blue Edge Property director Stephanie Huizing said this 102ha farm was “one in a million”.

“This is a special property as it has been a tightly held family farm for more than 20 years now, and it is ready for a new family to move in and love it just as much as the owner Sandra and her family have over the years,” Stephanie said.

“Throughout this time they’ve transformed the homestead, adding a second storey, a sweeping veranda and a sheltered alfresco dining area to give the house character.

“Sandra created the landscaped gardens that embrace the home and offer distinction from the surrounding pastures.”

Pretty as a picture.

Wide open space.

The homestead offers four bedrooms and an impressive tiled bathroom with a tub and vanity.

Each bedroom is a generous size, with one located upstairs alongside a study, if desired.

Stephanie said the home was perfectly suited to a family or a couple seeking a country life with room for livestock, horses and room to spread out.

“I think its best feature is the complete tranquillity,” she said.

“The gentle rolling hills and green pastures that surround the home create a beautiful setting.”

The spacious, extensively renovated home features an elegant sitting room with access through to the family room, highlighted by the romance of a wood fire — a perfect addition to any country home.

Warm and inviting.

Cook up a feast.

In the blackwood kitchen there is superb cabinetry, leafy views and an island bench. From here the floor plan flows to the dining room.

These living spaces are kept comfortable year round by a reverse-cycle airconditioner.

On a balmy night or a sunny afternoon, the covered veranda offers an ideal outdoor entertaining space suitable.

The surrounding land is divided into 16 paddocks, which are fenced predominantly with ring-lock fencing with steel strainers and electric outriggers. There are 13 water holes.

The house is serviced by a 90,000-litre tank on the shearing shed and a 20,000-litre tank filled from the home’s roof. And there are three more back-up tanks — just in case.

The bore pump is plumbed to run five sprinklers to the gardens, as well as topping up the 8ML dam.

Run some water, then relax.

Entertainment options galore.

With a full complement of facilities, including a 256sqm shearing shed and sheep yards, a dairy with cattle yards and loading ramp, a 12m x 18m hay barn, an 18m x 9m storage barn, plus a small glasshouse and a five-bay garage/machinery shed, this farm has pretty much got every “i’’ dotted and “t’’ crossed.

Stephanie said Pleasant Place offered the ideal lifestyle change for those seeking a hobby farm and room to grow.

“I think there could be many ideal buyers for this outstanding property, such as people who want a hobby farm, someone looking for a country bed-and-breakfast destination, or it would be the ideal horse-riding property or school,” she said.

Lush from any angle.

Roll up your sleeves and get busy.

In the past, Pleasant Place was the centre of a larger farm.

Its 102ha of fertile land is picturesque and peaceful, a perfect fit with the gorgeous landscape and avenue of grand pine trees that welcome visitors to this exceptional property.

So, where exactly is Baden? In one direction, Oatlands is nearby — within a 10-minute drive, offering services and amenities. In the other direction, Hobart is about 50km from this adorable farm.
