Would suit a retired couple. The dog is a 7 year old very friendly American Staghound (see pictures), and the property is a 10 acre farmlet adjacent to the Whipstick State Park. The property comprising of a 4 bedroom double brick house with ensuite to master, a stable block (no horses/animals - other than the dog), and four empty fenced paddocks. All main living areas and bedrooms are fitted with their own R/C Air Conditioners, and the main room is equipped with large coonara heater with plenty of supplied wood if necessary - although not likely in the required house-sit months. The property is a rural property adjacent to the Whipstick State Park and approximately 8 minutes drive to nearest shopping in Eaglehawk, and approximately 16 minutes into Central Bendigo depending on direction taken, so a vehicle is essential as there is no public transport. It is a quiet rural property with all services (Tank Water - 4 tanks, NBN Internet, etc.) There are several neighbors within a few hundred metres so the property is not totally isolated. Property is on Google Maps at 490 Camp Road, Woodvale. Vic. 3556. The dog only requires feeding once per day and has free roam of the property, and he sleeps & eats inside. He is a very good noisy guard dog, but very friendly to known friends to the farm. (See pictures for property).
