This old vineyard now offers home to Jem & Outi, their 3 dogs and 3 horses. The house is huge with so called dual living zones: this means that one end of the house is wasted as no-one is using it. We have 2 double bedrooms available with shower + toilet pretty much for your use only. Outside we have a swimming pool, tennis court (you'd have to provide your own rackets & tennis partner!), riding arena, a garden that is too big, horse paddocks and native bush.
We would like Helpers who are comfortable with basic farm/house maintenance, fencing/old shed repairs, gardening etc i.e. basic DIY knowledge would be great. Anyone with engine/mechanical skills or shed building/repair skills would get priority.
We exist on tank water so short showers are a must; we also use a wood burning heater to keep the house warm and this needs a regular feed of logs to keep the house comfy (everyone should participate in this as well as chopping firewood if needed).
We are based approx. 5km outside Broadford town (Vline station in town), approx 1 hour from Melbourne and close to the Hume HWY.
