Platypus Bend is the most beautiful self-sufficient farm in Dorrigo.

If you are considering getting out of the city, this haven of natural beauty, abundant in wildlife, from koalas, platypus, wallabies and an array of colourful parrots this is the property for you.

Over the last 4 years the owners have created their own food producing gardens, with espaliered fruit trees for ease of picking and raised garden beds for the vegies. Passionfruit, raspberries, nectarines, blueberries, lemons, limes and oranges are just a small part of what can be grown in this cool-temperate area. There is also greenhouse, pond, potting shed, and chook palace area.

The property is approximately 280 acres with about 200 of those cleared and pasture improved. The current owners have been running 160 steers and 200 in spring summer months.

The contemporary home is in keeping with property, it faces direct north and captures outstanding views over the rolling green pastures and mountains in all directions. There is a 5 kilowatt solar system that has batteries attached so you can have a off the grid system if you choose.

The home has a very practical layout with 4 bedrooms all with built-ins and the main bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and a stylish ensuite with a spa bath with a view like no other. The main bathroom and laundry have under floor heating for the cooler months. The living space is open plan in design with the lounge room in the centre of the home with large wood fire to keep you cosy through winter.

The spacious light and airy kitchen with modern appliances and ample cupboard space faces north and has spectacular views. You can cook for family and friends and take in the amazing views.

There is a separate self-contained workman's cottage which you could use for whatever you please.

Plenty of shedding keeps the property tidy and all the tools and equipment safely stashed away.

100,000 litre underground concrete water tank, which also has a bore attached, as well as two 10,000 litre water tanks off the sheds water is no issue.

Water is the greatest asset anyone can have access to now and into the future. This property is abundant in this precious source, from pretty streams running through the forest, to the Little Murray River, which is the boundary of the property boasting a significant, totally breathtaking swimming hole and waterfall. It is like owning your own piece of a national park, which you don't have to share with anyone!

This unique property offers the purchaser a walk in and start living lifestyle opportunity. A must to inspect!
