Midwest American-style barn on the market in Garfield, Victoria
A barn-house that looks straight out of midwest America has been listed in Garfield, 70 kilometres south-east of Melbourne.
A dream for fans of Americana, the property is even pictured with a classic 1950s jukebox.
Agent Graeme Dimsey from LJ Hooker Cranbourne says the vendor, Robert Seger, is a fan of all things American.
“He did a lot of travelling to America, he’s got a lot of custom-built American cars. He has a lot of nostalgic things he’s collected over the years,” he says.
“He liked what he saw in the midwestern barn and decided to build a house on top of one.
“He built it just because he could. He’s a very cool character.”
The property is billed as being ideal for horse trainers or agistment. Mustangs can run free on the property’s 15-hectare spread. The barn comes with five stables, a 90,000-litre underground tank and bore, numerous loose boxes and timber post and rail fencing.
Upstairs is a four-bedroom residence with timber floorboards, dark-tiled bathroom and a huge kitchen big enough to prepare and cook a Thanksgiving day roast turkey and pumpkin pie.
There is room for a small muscle car collection in the property’s three-car garage, as well as plenty of room for uncovered parking.
Dimsey says a lot of the wood used on the property is reclaimed timber.
“A lot of the timber you see, all the posts and things, a lot of it came from Queenscliff when they ripped down the jetty, all the reclaimed boardwalks and jetties.”
Dimsey expects to sell for around $1.3 million.
