This one-of-a-kind property on the Bellarine provides a rare opportunity to create the ultimate lifestyle in an idyllic rural setting while offering potential to develop part of the huge 71acres (approx.) of land (STCA).

The architect-designed former residence of Melbourne Cup-winning horse trainer George Hanlon sits on 4.94acres with a second house, alongside a further parcel of almost 66.05acres zoned part-rural living/part-farming.

Stables set up during Hanlon's training days can accommodate up to 20 horses.

The spacious brick main home is bathed in natural light throughout and includes a stunning kitchen, dining and sunroom area with Coonara wood heater, overlooking a sunken living room with open fireplace and a north-facing wall of glass that leads out to the garden and outdoor deck.

The kitchen includes granite benchtops with a huge island bench, walk-in pantry, appliance cupboard, European appliances and abundant cupboard space.

Both the master bedroom and ensuite have picture windows that showcase the property's wide-open spaces and country feel.

The ensuite, with walk-in shower and floor-to-ceiling tiles, adjoins a large walk-in robe.

There's plenty of flexibility in the current floorplan with up to five bedrooms or four bedrooms with the current fitted-out study.

Other features include a large storage shed, plenty of space to store boats or caravans, split-system units, a huge laundry, loads of storage throughout, solid timber and terracotta floors, security system and ceiling fans.

The second house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas with its own entrance and separate drive.

On a quiet country road, the unique property offers a relaxed rural lifestyle, yet is just a stone's throw from Lake Connewarre and an easy drive to Bellarine beaches and wineries, Adventure Park, Curlewis Golf Club and Geelong's CBD.

There are plenty of nearby shopping options and you're within 10 minutes of a host of schools, including Christian College's Bellarine campus, St Ignatius College, Bellarine Secondary College and Wallington Primary School.
