Located in the beautiful Orara Valley just 12 minutes drive from the amenities and beaches of Coffs Harbour, 'Strathclyde' is a stunning lifestyle and pastoral property.
With over 1 km of pristine Orara River frontage and beautiful 360 degree views this mostly renovated Colonial Style home is set on 88 acres.
Situated centrally in a fenced established garden of around 1.5 acres the house was extensively renovated 5 years ago to provide free flowing open plan living and entertaining areas. The house is linked via a covered carport to a garage which can optionally be used as a children's rumpus room or easily converted into a granny flat.
The features of this property will suit you and your family with 4/5 bedrooms and spacious open plan living areas. A high quality kitchen sets the scene for your meals and entertaining with access out to the deck overlooking the gardens and pool.
The 5th bedroom could be an office enabling you to work from home with its own entrance from outside.
Your family and friends will love the salt water chlorinated swimming pool with a spa and sauna.
There is extensive garaging fed from the delightful circular gravel driveway welcoming you to this quite delightful setting.
There are huge storage sheds and shelters with ample room for a boat, caravan or tractor.
With stabling for up to 3 horses, a simple renovation will keep them dry and comfortable.
With a multitude of private swimming holes along Orara River frontage, you and your friends and family can enjoy the secluded locations to fish or BBQ on those days when the pool ambiance doesn't quite suffice.
NBN is connected, you are surrounded with great bird-life and for the adventurous the 10 acres of private old growth forest awaits.
Strathclyde is located only 12 minutes from Coffs Harbour town centre, 15 minutes to magnificent beaches and 20 minutes to Coffs Harbour Airport.
The local primary school is 5 minutes drive away and the school bus for primary and high schools in town stops right outside the property.
The total acreage is 88 acres of which 76 are divided into 6 well-fenced paddocks including 3 river flats. All paddocks have excellent access to water and in addition a tank-fed, trough based gravity fed water system is currently being installed. A cattle holding yard and loading ramp is centrally situated.
At present the land is agisted to the local dairy farmer and supports around 50 cattle. The existing arrangements may be extended or you may choose to raise your own beef cattle, sheep or goats, keep horses grow blueberries or perhaps consider an Eco-tourism business.
Alternatively you and your family can just sit back and enjoy the property!
Strathclyde's residence is situated 150 metres above sea level and commands excellent 360 degree views. Access to the house is by a gently rising shared private road which leads to an impressive bluestone circular driveway.
Just reiterating that the extensive Orara River frontage provides great recreational opportunities such as fishing and kayaking. The secluded swimming holes are very special indeed and have to be seen to be truly appreciated.
Dual occupancy status will shortly be granted by Coffs Council allowing construction of a second dwelling on the property. Also of interest to prospective buyers is the Coffs Harbour bypass which has recently been given the go-ahead and is scheduled to be completed by 2023.
Please phone Peter or Michael to arrange an inspection whenever suits.
