Squires Leap is one of those rare landmark properties that retains its history and integrity into current times.
The Smith Family milled the timber from trees on the farm to build their grand family homestead in 1926. They created a colonial inspired home full of art deco style on a scale rarely seen.
The ornate plaster cornices, ceiling roses and rich wood panelling complement the high ceilings and warm hard wood floors. Wide wrap around verandahs and expansive covered deck have hosted many a large gathering of friends and family, flowing out to the beautifully established gardens, iconic giant hoop pine and lily covered spring fed swimming dam. The feeling is one of elegance from a bygone era.
Squires leap covers 224 acres of rich Mountain Top land, ranging from lush creek flats, high plateaus with breathtaking mountain views to gentle paddocks and forested pockets.
The land is blessed with fertile volcanic soils watered by creeks, springs and dams. Currently running cattle and horses with plenty of room for further horticultural pursuits and tourism activities.
Presently enjoyed as a lifestyle property based around horses this could be expanded by further utilising the huge 24m x 12m timber Dutch Barn, dressage area and round yards. With long scenic riding trails on the land adding up to a possible tourism venture.
Supporting the farm income are the charming 2/3 bed original farm house and 1/2 bed converted dairy bales. Both are full of original features with glorious mountain views and currently tenanted, providing a handy income.
The current owner has been the custodian of this special property for 28 years and has made the decision to move to pastures new, creating the opportunity for the next chapter at Squires Leap.
