Inspection Times

Welcome to your country paradise. This property is perfectly presented as a quality country retreat. Great potential to expand the home if needed but as the property currently presents, the property represents your opportunity to immerse yourself in authentic country ambience with space, tranquillity and self-sufficiency. Immaculate, affordable and modest family home, with everything done properly. The home is strategically positioned in the middle of the property, surrounded by mature trees for privacy and a wonderful ambience.

The home was built on site and is currently arranged as two bedrooms (one room is presented as a bedroom/study with fold out bed), both with full height built in robes. Master bedroom has an abundance of light and relaxing views. A separate laundry with easy access to the outside. Open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room again with light, space and views of the countryside over large decking on both sides of the home and beyond. Entertaining will be a special experience at this property.
Combustion heater and reverse cycle heat/cool keep the home comfortable year round.
Two-bay garage is complemented with an attached shed (cement floor) which serves as a workshop. A Biocycle septic system in place. Another shed attached is currently operating as a storage area.
The property has approximately 58,000 L of rain water storage, and with a well (equipped with a small pump) plumbed to several spots around the garden, water security is in place. A winter creek meanders across the property and is another useful and strategic water supply asset.
Fencing is in good condition across the property. People looking towards self-sufficiency will be pleased with the hard work that is evident – just walk in, unpack and enjoy from day 1; fruit trees, vegetable gardens, chook sheds, even room for a couple of sheep or a horse is not out of the question. In addition to being self-sufficient for water, a 1.5kW solar system is installed providing approx. $100 of credit each quarter.
At the back of the property is two-room stone cottage (easily 100 years old) which has been recently re-roofed but remains a “work in progress” with the opportunity to transform into something quite special.
