About Vicki Buchanan
After years of inner city living, we felt the country calling. Desperate for a big vege garden, a few chickens, a menagerie of fury creatures and some form of self sufficiency, we began the search for a property. We now call Westcott in Ballan home. Loving country living!
Vicki Buchanan purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Vicki Buchanan chose Ballan
Westcott screamed out to be rescued. It was a massive project, but worth the effort. Run as a maternity hospital in the 1920's - 40's, many of the elderly Ballan residents were born here, so there are many stories to be told about this property, and much sentiment for Westcott within the town. The property is almost 4 acres on the edge of town and backing onto the Werribee River. What was not to love about this property... Set on hill with views down the river valley to the Wombat State forest, and steeped in history. Not to mention a barn to die for!
What makes this Cottage unique
Westcott is a lovely, old rambling house with an amazing old barn that once watered Cobb and Co horses. The view from our living area to the country side and forest is amazing, especially given the property is within Ballan township. It is situated on the edge of the goldfields and in spa country. The stunning autumn colours bought on by freezing winters, give way to the most spectacular spring blossoms. We love the four seasons in this area. Within a 30km radius of Ballan there's so much to explore. There are many historic towns and sites, great food and wine, fantastic walks and beautiful countryside.
