Gracious Living & Stunning Kalang River Views
This beautiful property is located just 15 minutes drive from the boutique township of Bellingen. Bellingen is a must-see destination for any traveller. The township retains a picturesque and historic country feeling and boasts a healthy arts community, great shopping and it has a lively café culture.
Nestled in 45 acres of rich, alluvial pasture, bounded on 3 sides by the Kalang River, the homestead is situated on a gently sloping hillside. It offers unparalleled views of the cleverly landscaped gardens and the surrounding forest and farmlands. The river is visible from every room. It is in close proximity to pristine beaches and its northerly aspect ensures cooling summer breezes that can be enjoyed from the enormous entertaining areas.
The private and immaculately presented 4 bedroom residence offers a genteel lifestyle. The ceilings are high and the rooms are spacious. Here, there is a sense of luxury. The first glimpses of this striking tallowwood timber house "speak" of comfortable rooms and real country living. There is a 2 car garage with workshop space, alongside the main entrance.
3.5m verandahs circumnavigate the residence and overlook the large in ground swimming pool. This property is one known for guests never wanting to leave! It is tastefully decorated throughout. The informal living areas have soft cork floors. The lounge room features both a huge country style brick fireplace, as well as a more conventional slow-combustion heater. The music collection and library are houses along one long wall. The new kitchen has Bosch appliances including a 5-burner gas stove and dish washer and there's a large "prep" island and plenty of bench space. It is a cook's delight - as is the walk-in pantry.
The formal lounge also boasts a fireplace and leads to the verandahs. Each double bedroom has large windows to maximise the views, built-in wardrobes and plush carpets. The generously proportioned master bedroom has a classic walk-in wardrobe, roomy en suite and spectacular views across the property. The general bathroom servicing the other bedrooms has a double bath ..... There is ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning throughout. Linen and appliance cupboards are substantial. The laundry offers a further shower and toilet and has a second slow combustion heater which creates an excellent drying room.
The property has 20,000 gallons of fresh rainwater storage, 3 dams, plentiful bore water and irrigation to 5 acres of fallow grape vine infrastructure. There are two steel sheds, one with a kitchen area, power and hot/cold water. The 4 paddocks are fully fenced and currently under agistment and there are cattle yards, a citrus orchard and a vegetable garden. The wood shed completes the country image and the boat ramp to the river creates your new lifestyle.
This is truly a place to call "home"; a property to share with family and friends.
