An exceptional opportunity to purchase the historically significant Lawrence Park homestead, that lies outside the charming rural village of Batesford, is now available through Elders Real Estate.
Set on 268 acres of gently rolling hills and Moorabool River frontage, 56 Butcher Road represents an incredibly rare and unique lifestyle opportunity.
The main brick homestead, dating back to the 1840s, sits elevated overlooking fields and the river beyond.
Elders Rural & Lifestyle sales manager Peter Lindeman said this is an extremely rare chance to acquire a piece of the region’s pastoral history.
“Not only does this historic rural holding offer a snapshot into the romance of yesteryear grazing grandeur, it still boasts a significant land component for a serious farming enterprise,” Mr Lindeman said.
“Alternatively, being so close to Geelong, the potential to utilise its historic significance and enticing rural outlook for tourism-based activities or function space, subject to council approval, are enticing.
“Given Lawrence Park has been in the same family for no less than 150 years – to say this is a rare opportunity would be a significant understatement.
“This offering represents a tremendous opportunity to secure a significant historic rural lifestyle investment.
“Whether you’re looking for a rural business venture or just a great private getaway with some farm income, this property stands out.”
Whilst currently showing its age, it is one of the earliest surviving buildings of the Geelong region and maintains its rural grandeur – with future refurbishment likely an excellent and rewarding opportunity.
Currently it features numerous bedrooms, sitting rooms, a kitchen/dining room and bathroom – all still functional but in need of renovation.
A look back over the long history of agricultural enterprise on the property provides future inspiration – with record of everything from crops, grazing to viticulture.
Given the space, arable terrain and proximity to thriving metropolitan regions, the potential for activating numerous income opportunities cannot be ignored.
The potential is immense and the rewards no doubt extraordinary – so enquire today.
