Bega Plains Homestead presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the great old homesteads of the Walla Walla district.
It was built more than 100 years ago by the Muller family.
The 92-hectare property is only 35 minutes' drive from central Albury, 5km from Walla and 15km from Culcairn.
Bega Plains Homestead is constructed of double brick, which was kilned on the property, on rising land with stunning views over the countryside in all directions.
The home incorporates three large bedrooms, an ensuite to the master, as well as a spacious study that could be used as a fourth bedroom. There are 12-foot ceilings and wide verandahs.
The main living area has a wood heater plus there is ducted split-level air-conditioning to all rooms.
The kitchen is extensive, there is an enormous formal dining room, a large attic with stairs, plumbed and room for two bedrooms or a rumpus room.
Outside you'll find the historic brick cottage, originally the property’s shearer’s quarters, with air conditioning, an underground cellar and a lovely established garden encompassing the surrounds of both the cottage and homestead.
The pump shed nearby was once the meat room and an old storage shed was the cubby house of Mrs Joyce Muller and siblings back in the early 1900s.
Improvements include a large steel shed, 30m x 10m with power and flood lighting, excellent fencing and water reticulated to troughs.
