SUSTAINABILITY, PEACE, PRIVACY AND BEAUTY AT ITS FINESTAs we all know, certain properties have their own instant indefinable effect on upon the viewer. You will be charmed and enchanted by this magnificent property.
Situated on 34 acres of grazing and forested land, this elegant home is spacious, tranquil and well appointed. The 270-degree views over the Wallamba Valley are spectacular and unsurpassed.
A major goal when designing this house was to bring the outdoors indoors. Rooms have large glass sliding doors and windows which do indeed bring the outdoors in. Wherever you look there is something beautiful to see. A large open-plan living area with wooden floors and verandas provides areas to relax or entertain outdoors at any time of the year, surrounded by delightful gardens which attract a large variety of Australian wildlife. Over 60 different bird species have been counted near the house, from tiny blue wrens and finches to kookaburras, king parrots and mighty wedge-tailed eagles. Wallabies, echidnas and kangaroos are also regular visitors.
Built to be environmentally conscious and sustainable, the house includes a solar heating system, a 10-kw roof-mounted solar electricity panel system, Envirocycle septic system, in-ground water systems for the orchard and gardens, and an inground pool with solar-heating. The large, modern kitchen is open, well-appointed and has a walk-in pantry. The house is connected to town water and has a sealed driveway, ducted vacuum cleaner system, ducted air conditioner, wood-fired combustion heater, wine cellar, three-car garage, workshop, carport and garden shed with shade house.
Behind the house is a flourishing orchard and a netted vegetable garden, expertly developed and nurtured to require minimal maintenance. Macadamia, pecan, pear, nectarine, peach, apple, guava, longan, lemon, orange, lime, mandarin, mango, paw paw, mulberry, olive, fig and plum trees are well established, and there are beds of asparagus, strawberries, loganberries and many varieties of herbs and spices.
With unsurpassed views and country clean air, the property is located only 30 minutes from the popular tourist towns of Forster, Tuncurry and Blackhead with shopping centres, restaurants, beaches and the glorious Wallis Lake with its abundant wildlife, including dolphins and pelicans. It is an easy three-hour drive from Sydney.
A gardener’s delight, an environmentalist’s dream and a property which is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the country lifestyle, or it could easily become a sustainable business.
