Approaching the homestead from sealed road frontage along sealed driveway, you'll be amazed by its picturesque rural surrounds and outstanding views, the homestead itself is nestled high on a hill overlooking the picturesque Murrumbidgee River valley.
The north facing home oozes country charm with thoughtful modern updates throughout maintaining its country feel. Offering rural and garden views from all rooms, the versatile layout offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and generous living areas located away from the bedrooms.
The stunning country kitchen, recently updated to a high standard will have you cooking up a storm and enjoying casual meals at the timber breakfast bar overlooking the river and valley taking in the serenity.
With breathtaking views from all living areas, you will love curling up on the couch by the window reading a book, or relaxing in the sunken lounge room with the wood-fire burning during the winter months.
The large master suite has a custom made built-in-wardrobe, recently updated ensuite and ample space for a sitting area creating a great space for a parents' retreat. The second and third bedrooms are quite spacious. The third has its own ensuite and built-in-wardrobe, whilst the fourth bedroom is segregated at the eastern wing currently part of the Bed & Breakfast (B&B) with its own guest quarters.
The B & B accommodation under the main roofline but segregated from the rest of the house has a fully equipped kitchenette, private entrance and balcony area with its own lounge room and ensuite. The B&B can be configured as having 1 bedroom with ensuite or alternatively 2 bedrooms each with ensuite. The current owners have estimated an income of up to approximately $45,000 p/a. Also, this area could easily be utilised as a teenager's retreat, extended family accommodation or guest quarters if the B & B isn't your thing.
The 40 acres are divided into 8 paddocks with 4 dams. There are around 900 mature Hazelnut bushes which are not currently being commercially harvested by the owners, so the opportunity is there for you to capitalise on additional income earning potential. The grove which doubles as a great "lambing paddock" has over a dozen different varieties of hazelnuts. The birdlife currently gets the major share of any crop as the bushes are not covered/protected during harvest. It could be worth investigating the use of a "drone" to discourage excessive feeding on fresh nuts.
There is no shortage of water here! Riparian water rights from the river provide water for stock and domestic use PLUS there is a four megalitre Irrigation Licence.
Automated electric pump at river directs the river water to a settling tank high on the hill which gravity feeds to two 10,000ltr (approx) holding tanks, then to the Hazelnut bushes and the oval - (Yes there is a small football oval with a goal post for some fun with family and friends.)
Water is also pumped from one of the main dams (stacked with yabbies) to another holding tank at the top of the hill, then gravity feeding to the gardens and can also supplement the supply to the Hazelnuts. There are a number of rainwater tanks off house and sheds providing holding capacity of approx 250,000 ltrs of potable water.
This is riverfront living at it's best. Imagine how much your family and friends will enjoy what the mighty Murrumbidgee has to offer. Swimming, canoeing, fishing, platypus spotting, relaxing on the riverbank, etc - All on your doorstep.
