The ultimate in self-sufficiency, this modern 6 bedroom country home with 2.5 bathrooms and 2 living areas on 5 lush acres will tick all the boxes.
Situated on the edge of town, the house is private and well positioned on the fully fenced property and offers 360' views of the surrounding farmlands. Surrounding the house are 5 acres of fruit orchards & fully irrigated organically grown vegetable gardens.
The 5 acre property is made up of 10 x half-acre blocks on 10 seperate titles, allowing the possibility of future sale of a block or two if necessary (STCA). Currently surrounding blocks of similar sizes are selling for $60-80,000 each.
The property currently runs Dorpa sheep but would also lend itself to horses, cows or alpacas. A keen hobby-farmer could also expand the existing gardens & create a self-supporting home business growing pumpkins, garlic or any number of things. The gentle lay of the land may also provide opportunity for an easily established dam where a slight water-course flows across the lower part of the property in times of rain. An application for a bore has already been approved by council.
The extensive, well-established fruit orchards include various heirloom apple & pear varieties fully trained onto espallier frames, as well as blueberries, guavas, mulberries, strawberries, youngberries, figs, young avocados & others. There is a huge well-designed, irrigated & maintained, fenced vegetable garden producing pumpkins, beans, peas, edible dandelion, squash, many popular herbs, asparagus, zucchinis, horseradish, etc throughout the seasons. The soil is rich and of excellent quality, suitable for growing produce with all areas of the garden employing organic principles - no chemicals! In the center of the main vegetable garden there is a large chicken coop which provides composting & soil-improvement for the surrounding gardens & provides the home with good healthy eggs. If self-sufficiency is what you are seeking, this property has a lot to offer.
The property is fully fenced & divided into various paddocks & garden areas with the majority of fencing high-quality & in great condition.
The large, expansive home has six bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen with butlers pantry & main living/dining area, a second family loungeroom with sliding doors, ensuite (shower, toilet, vanity) off main bedroom, main bathroom with bath & shower & a separate toilet with vanity - ideal for the large family or just a family needing space or running a home business. There are a number of telephone & TV outlets throughout the house, as well as a satellite dish & outlet, currently picking up a range of free alternative channels.
The house is approximately 28 meters long & almost 11 meters wide including a 2m wide fully-covered timber deck running right around. The 360 degree views from the fully surrounding verandah are spectacular, possibly some of the best in the area, looking north towards the edge of the township & mountains, south toward beautiful lush countryside as far as the eye can see.
The home is fully insulated with a spilt-system air conditioner, also with two whirligigs fitted to the roof to maximise cooling. There are two eco-friendly hot water systems in place. The original instantaneous gas system remains in place with a changeover system allowing it to be used again in the future. Also installed is a new high-quality Apricus Solar Hot Water System providing plenty of free hot water. There is a dual water supply - a combination of town water & rainwater tank with huge capacity. A simple changeover valve allows choice of optimal water source depending on rain, garden irrigation needs, etc.
The property is located in Bemboka in the top end of the beautiful dairy region of the Bega Valley in Southern NSW. A small, friendly town on the Snowy Mountains Highway just 54 Km from beautiful Tathra Beach & just over an hour from Jindabyne, so beaches and snowy mountains are within easy reach.
