Wake up with the lyrebirds and breakfast with the bellbirds in this spotted gum forest paradise as you enjoy the antics of the king parrots, cuckoo doves and the rainbow lorikeets jostling at the bird feeder. This tranquil 6.8 ha property is surrounded by the Bega River to the south, a rainforest gully to the west, the Mimosa Rocks National Park to the north and the Murrah Flora Reserve to the east and its ridge top location gives expansive views of the river and forest gullies, with glimpses of the ocean as well.

The vaulted ceilings and celestory windows open out to the north and south through 6 panel sliding doors to a sundrenched patio and an alfresco area overlooking the river respectively - ideal for entertaining or everyday relaxing. The master bedroom, large ensuite and study face north so that full use is made of the floor to ceiling windows that bring in the winter sun, and the cooling sea breezes in summer. With no near neighbours you can forget privacy worries, so relax in bed or in the shower as you appreciate the native gardens.The guest wing has another large bedroom, separate toilet and bathroom with extensive views out over the river from the freestanding bath.
