For those with an eye for beauty and a desire for peace and tranquility this 50 acre property may be irresistible. Only 11 km from Berry and 25 min from beaches, this totally private hideaway provides a rare and exceptional opportunity to enjoy a vista of visual richness, abundant native flora and fauna (lyre birds, echidnas, wombats and endangered wallabies).
It has as its backdrop dramatic sandstone escarpment atop of which lie the protected Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. From the base of the screeslope the land falls in a number of tiers of flats fringed with lilli pilli, sassafrass, acacias, eucalypts and a scattering of red cedars. It then plunges steeply to its frontage with the pristine Brogers Creek, enabling access to a number of magnificent swimming holes.
The organically constructed hardwood house, comprises 3 bedrooms, hovers between elegant and utilitarian with its predominantly brushbox flooring and a combination of western red cedar and cyprus wall and roof cladding. It is well positioned to take advantage of a parklike garden with established trees, large pond and rock walls created from local sandstone and panoramic views across the valley.
The area is well watered and appears perfectly situated to withstand climate change predictions. A natural spring emerges at a convenient location above the house supplying gravity fed potable ground water sufficient for domestic purposes. It has not run dry in the last 24 years of current ownership.
The top section of the property contains 8 paddocks, all but one of which have stables (17 in all). These are equipped with tanks and/or dams. Near to the house are two additional structures that could be used as cabin or studio/office accommodation as well as large machinery shed, enclosed vegetable garden and potting shed.
Properties like this are scarce and tightly held. Delay will lead to disappointment.
