Woolbrae is an idyllic combination of equestrian facility and country estate - a rare jewel on the Surf Coast. The 45-acre property features park-like gardens, a spacious, contemporary Australian farmhouse and extensive equestrian facilities.
Fully renovated and surrounded by generous verandahs, the house boasts a large modern kitchen with stone benchtops, Miele appliances and walk-in pantry, opening onto a dining room with vaulted ceiling and living room with open fireplace. American oak floors flow throughout, every room has beautiful views into the garden and there is an alfresco entertaining area with open fireplace. The children’s wing has five carpeted bedrooms with built-in robes, desks and bookshelves, two bathrooms and a spacious TV room. The parents’ wing features a huge main bedroom with walk-in robe and large ensuite. A spacious carpeted study overlooks lawns and into the paddocks beyond.
The garden features a 20-metre swimming pool and tennis court, dog and chook runs, sumptuous lawns, flowerbeds and a vegie garden. The equestrian facilities include a 20x60m dressage arena, 50x60m jumping arena, round yard, stables, wash bay, truck and float garage, tack and feed rooms, hay store, 18 post and rail paddocks (12 with shelters) and two hay paddocks. A riding trail and cross-country course wind around the property.
Other buildings include a double garage with bunkroom attached, an old woolshed, a woodshed, an aging cottage and a large machinery shed. Town and tank water ensure a plentiful supply. The property ebbs gracefully toward Thompson Creek on its southern boundary, providing scenic views of the surrounding landscape. Woolbrae is only ten minutes from Torquay and Geelong, an idyllic blend of country, coast and equestrian utopia.
