Jellis Craig’s Paul Keane said the property had been on the market for only a week and had already attracted strong interest from Melbourne.
“City buyers are eyeing the earning potential of the property, size of the land and the style of the home,” he said.
“Winchester Park is undoubtedly a once in a lifetime proposition.”
The landholding shares a boundary with Little Coliban River and includes 13 paddocks with water troughs and electric fences, a large dam and bore, plus all-weather cattle yards and a crush.
There is a three-bay garage, a large timber machinery shed and workshop, and a five-bay farm machinery shed. All outbuildings have concrete floors and are attached to power.
Mr Keane said the current owners ran 35 head of breeding angus cattle on the land.
“New owners could continue to run livestock or agist the land to local farmers,” he said.
The renovated farmhouse, built around 1910, nestles in a tranquil garden of sweeping lawns and mature trees framed with cypress and privet hedges.
A long tree-lined driveway leads to the charming period home, which has generously proportioned rooms set under soaring ceilings.
An entrance hallway leads to three bedrooms, including the main with a box-bay window with bench seats, french doors opening to a veranda, an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
The signature piece of the home is the family living and dining zone with an open fireplace and a kitchen with marble benchtops, an Ilve stainless-steel stove and a built-in coffee machine.
It opens to a wide wraparound veranda that spills to paved and decked outdoor entertainment zones.
Other features include plantation shutters, polished Baltic pine floors, four open fireplaces, refrigerated ducted heating and cooling systems, timber fretwork and panelled walls.
The property is a 10-minute drive from Kyneton and Woodend, and an hour from the Melbourne CBD.
