One of the titles to 'Carlow', Peter and Jan Nolan's Tarrawingee property was first issued to their fore-bears in 1872, they having settled in the district in 1859. The family name is synonymous with Tarrawingee and, particularly with the iconic Plough Inn Hotel, located just a stone's throw away from 'Carlow', which was operated by Peters parents for many decades. The forthcoming Auction of Peter and Jan's 290 acre showpiece home and grazing property is sure to attract widespread interest because of its viable size, location and outstanding features. With multiple road frontages and eight crown allotments, Carlow lies just 12 kms east of Wangaratta via the Great Alpine Road and Beechworth Road to which it has frontage.
Pasture improvement of the 290 acres has been comprehensive including regular liming and annual topdressing. All the seven main paddocks and the property boundaries have excellent fences with most electrified. The paddocks have independent water supply from three main bores (two with solar pumps) to troughs. Hodgsons Creek, which bisects the property providing seasonal flows. Approx 10 acres of retained native timber plus attractive established plantations provide for valuable shelter and Creekside protection. The history of high quality stock turned off Carlow, is testament to the quality Ovens Valley soils, the highly improved pastures and top management by the family.
The unparalleled presentation of 'Carlow' extends to the attractive four bedroom dwelling. The twenty one year old home offers two living areas and two bathrooms with quality built ins, fittings and fixtures throughout. Features include high ceilings, evap cooling, solid fuel and gas heating plus shady country style verandahs.
