WHEN selling a family property as a vendor, you are essentially letting go of a piece of family history that will be embedded in you and your children’s minds forever.
We all think back to those special moments when we were growing up and exploring the world as kids, and this is what makes a great family home, and this is precisely the situation for David and Janelle Treharne who are selling their much-loved semi-rural property in Moolap.
After many years of joy creating their family oasis (a small farmlet central to everything), David and Janelle are moving to be closer to their family, creating a wonderful opportunity for the next owners to create their own family dreams.
“We’ve lived here for more than eight years in our own piece of paradise that we have all loved,” they said.
“Our four kids enjoyed running around outside playing chasey with friends, the playground, in the treehouse and riding motorbikes.
“They all love their sport and we have catered for them with their own footy oval, soccer goals, netball and basketball area… not much time left for technology.”
To top this off, and to make the best of the property, David and Janelle have created a fantastic entertaining space for all ages to enjoy.
“We love entertaining and have had many a party in what we class as the man cave of all man caves, huge pergola, barbecue and spa area where you can enjoy a drink or just relax.
“It is so quiet here that we sit outside and hear nothing but birds and wildlife.
“Having fresh fruit and veggies just metres from our door has been amazing, our kids eat fresh fruit they’ve never had before because it tastes so different to (what’s available in) the shops.
“Chicken eggs are also collected daily, and provide an easy dinner or yummy brekkie on the weekends; we will really miss our oasis but are needing to be closer to family.”
With five-acre properties so close to the town and the beach such a rarity, 21-29 Chipperfield Drive Moolap is expected to attract a great deal of interest.
Listing agent Lee Botsios from Fletchers Queenscliff said that this magnificent semi-rural living opportunity is perfect for families or horse devotees.
“What better lifestyle is there than this?” Mr Botsios said.
“You have the best of everything in one property, while having the region’s best activities and attractions on your doorstep.
“The modern four-bedroom home is superbly presented with nothing left to do other than move in and enjoy your very own slice of rural paradise.”
Located at the gateway to the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, the acres surrounding the home host a myriad of quality, well-planned outbuildings, offering an array of options as to their use.
There is a six-car garage, huge undercover entertaining area with fenced outdoor spa, two garden sheds, a large fenced paddock at the front, perfect to ride your horse in or install an arena.
Other improvements include further hotwired paddocks, with water access, stables and a round yard, a family fun paddock with football oval and soccer goals, playground, cubbyhouse, a basketball/netball area, large chicken pen and run, a fantastic bird aviary and firewood shed.
A fully separated veggie garden with ample fruit trees ensures sustainable living and there is a caravan that can be utilised as a guest/teenage retreat and further bungalow/storage room.
