Your Invitation to the Ultimate Lifestyle PropertyModernised 4 bedroom farm house, 320 acres and endless water - welcome to self sustainability land.
You will benefit from breathing Megan's clean air while you watch the animals grazing, the vegies growing and the waterfall exuding all those negative ions and vast amounts of oxygen.
This magnificent 320 acre farm of 5 fenced paddocks consists of a modernised, north-east facing, 4 bedroom farm house with an office, a truly Australian vehicle/machinery shed with a concrete floor, a delightful self contained guest wing and converted bales which have been restored for use as manager's quarters.
To become less reliant on the outside world the owners have installed both solar hot water and solar panels to provide electricity to the main house and guest quarters. You will enjoy the pizza oven and bricked fire chimney under roof and to complete this amazing picture, you will find an underground wine cellar and root cellar keeping your wine at the perfect temperature.
Apart from the waterhole with tallow wood decking for swimming from, the land has 500m of absolute river frontage boasting waterfalls and swimming holes cascading over rock formations. The property can carry around 50 breeding cattle at any one time and there is a "super" supply of beech forest tree timber.
The homestead features polished wood and carpeted floorings, insulation in the roof and walls, a spacious full bathroom and separate toilet, a guest toilet and powder room. There is a large south facing deck for morning sun, and another off the living area for the early evening - both made from hard tallow wood and providing perfect aspects.
There is a separate sitting room and through the open plan dining and kitchen areas is a huge walk-in pantry. There is another cook's delight ..... the classic Rayburn stove (wood stove) which has been shipped from England and hot water can heat the house through radiators in most rooms throughout winter. The kitchen has been professionally designed with kitchen blum cabinets, solid reclaimed wood kitchen work bench, a modern gas stove and a wood cook stove in the lounge.
From an inviting vestibule entrance off the kitchen is an entertaining and barbeque courtyard and nearby is a fully fenced/roofed "Jamie Oliver" vegetable garden! The woods used in the house are blue gum and other local hard woods.
The guest house has a light and airy bedroom, a large lounge, a beautiful bathroom including a roll top bath, plenty of space, lots of storage and a wood fire.
The old bails have been recently restored to rustic nostalgic beauty embracing the original charm and features yet complimented with modern conveniences. Perfect for your guests or estate manager / farm hand.
The property's water supply is gravity fed from a new concrete tank, filling the numerous water tanks from the roofs and the river. The landscaped gardens and shrubs surrounding the house complete the picture. The gardens provide beautiful colour all year, balancing natives, with lavender and rhododendrons amongst others. The orchards are mature and much loved, are organic and have been mineralised.
Your family can eat from the well planned orchard. The citrus trees include limes, lemons, grapefruits, cumquats and grapefruits. The stone fruit includes a balanced variety of apples, peaches, nectarines, quinces, cherries and all sorts of berries and grapes. They are netted with love and care to protect fruit from birds so you will not lose any ready to eat delicacies.
To further add to your self sufficiency, there are chook houses and houses for other livestock There is also dog proof fencing around smaller rotating paddocks surrounding the stone orchard.
This property's sheer beauty, never ending water, its earning capacity and its private seclusion surrounded by lush pasture lands, make it one of the most desirable holdings in the Dorrigo area.
The owners are only moving due to going overseas for business, otherwise, they would live in this haven for ever - sincerely.
