Darkwood Farm “106 Acre Tropical Bush Oasis - Words Just Aren’t Enough”Phone Enquiry ID: 30176
A spectacularly unique, dream-come-true lifestyle property like this 106 acre oasis, very rarely becomes available. Undoubtedly the most beautiful property in Thora and beyond, perched high atop the mountain boasting impossible 180 degree views over world heritage rainforest and out to the ocean, from the escarpment down the waterfalls and to the Bellinger valley below.
Superior privacy, and yet close to schools (Steiner and public) and the local general store. Here, around the cleared house block, you have undulating, organically certified, drought and flood proof land, made up of old-and-new-growth tropical rain forest, 300m Bellinger River frontage, your own private swimming hole, fertile river flats, endless walking, biking and horse riding tracks and a never ending stream of visiting wildlife including wallabies, quolls, echidnas, parrots, fish, turtles, platypus and kookaburras, to name a few.
Fully set up for horses; with stables, fenced paddocks and riding arena, plus large sheds and and a mediterranean-inspired home boasting a landscape and a luscious backdrop that will absolutely take your breath away!
9 ft ceilings and solid brick walls adorned with expansive windows throughout the villa, with picture-perfect vistas from each one. And with no neighbours within view, there’s zero reason to ever close the blinds and shut any of it out.
The flexible floor plan offers an array of comfortable living options with four bedrooms, study and rumpus room. There is clever separation and privacy between wings - the master suite offers walk-in-wardrobes and ensuite, plus two other bathrooms service the rest of the household.
A contemporary kitchen with quality 900mm SMEG stainless steel upright stove and gas cooktop, built in pantry and two very generous family living areas, capturing both breezes and magnificent views - one opening straight out onto the covered, wrap-around patio, and the other onto the huge 100sqm sun-drenched deck allowing you to enjoy any time of day, while BBQ’ing with guests or retreating alone with a book, enjoying the serenity of the surrounds and watching the waterfalls.
Plus an additional activity room alongside one of the bedrooms and bathrooms, presenting great options for growing teens or guests as well as a rumpus room/fifth bedroom which could also serve as a teenage retreat.
Enjoy the beautiful, organic tastes of the fruits from the homegrown figs, limes, oranges, avocados and mandarin trees and two raised garden beds – all just metres from your front door.
5 x 5000 gallon water tanks (100,000ltrs approx), plus a 2 Meg water license and domestic bore. Storage and workspace won't be a problem with 3 large sheds - two 6m x 18m 4-bay machinery sheds, a 6.1m x 15.2m storage/workshop space and a garlic drying and packing shed.
Horse heaven with a fully functioning stable with 3 enclosed stalls, a tack room, indoor wash bay/grooming stall, indoor round pen, 4 board fenced 20m x 40m riding arena with sprinkler system, as well as horse-safe, fenced pastures with automatic waterers.

Conveniently located only 7kms to the local shop, post office and fuel station, 25 mins to the towns of Bellingen and Dorrigo, next door to the Rudolph Steiner School and 4km to the local public primary school. Coffs Harbour domestic airport is 45 mins.
