About this listing
Rarely do you find a farm with a reliable, annual indexed income outside of its normal rural purpose. This is the exception to the rule! An idyllic location, it is currently utilized for fattening 10-20 cattle and a peaceful lifestyle.

Superbly located at the end of a no through road, seclusion and tranquility await. Immaculately maintained, the 3 bedroom log cabin is nestled in a perfect spot to maximize views. The vibe is relaxed and the living spaces reflect this. A northerly aspect provides natural light to the sitting room and a slow combustion heater ensures that the kitchen/dine/family area are always warm in winter.

With no neighbors to disturb, you really are free to live the life many dream about, but few experience. Drinks on the verandah and wandering around the established gardens will become a favorite pastime. Lazy afternoons by the pool over-looking another stunning view - it is all here.

Imaginative souls will look at the 2nd de-commissioned log cabin and feel the urge to breath life into the space. What a perfect spot for an artist studio. Council may consider a B&B but this would naturally be subject to their consent. Located in a private little valley away from the main house it has sheds and overlooks a dam. Perfect!

Shedding is of a high standard with the main workshop measuring 10m x 6m and a second garage/workshop of 9m x 6m. Both have single phase power and concrete flooring. Abundant water is provided by a sound rainfall, 4 dams and ample rainwater storage in multiple tanks. Fenced into 6 paddocks the land is an attractive mix of mature gums, moss rocks and rolling open grazing land. Best suited to grazing cattle, sheep or similar.

When you consider the rental income, solar rebate, natural supply of firewood and water this property really does offer both financial security and sustainability.
