You simply won't have ever seen another like this property.
This period home was built in 1907 on a site in Murwillumbah and was moved to its present location in 1985 when its restoration began. The passing 30 years have transformed the home back to its original form with all the hard work been completed.
Set on approximately 50 acres in the Pottsville Hinterland, the home is ultimately made up of five bedrooms, two bathrooms and four car accommodation. However, itâ??s how these all come together that make the home truly unique.
Walking up the front steps with the original timber arches and lead light windows you are instantly pulled into the early 1900's era. The ornate pressed metal designs that sit atop the 14 foot ceilings, original polished teak floorboards and period furniture are simply amazing.
The 'his and her' bedrooms are enormous, are full of natural light from the bay windows and doors opening out onto the veranda. The other bedrooms are also a decent size but pale in comparison.
The formal lounge is complete with original fireplace, crystal chandelier and unique circular lead light window. Sit back and watch the birds playing outside in the bird bath or poinciana trees.
The kitchen and dining area have been renovated with the modern growing family in mind. The living area, located adjacent to the kitchen has a pot belly stove for those cold winter nights.
Whilst the home is certainly unique, it sits on the perfect ridge line to overlook the whole property. The wrap around veranda allows fantastic access to the landscaped grounds and swimming pool area. The home is extremely private yet has impressive views of the surrounding hinterland and ocean glimpses
The land is made up of a combination of elevated grazing land and flat ground ideal for grazing a few horses or perhaps an arena. It currently runs around 20 breeding Angus cows. Certainly not enough to make a living from but great for the kids to play around with and keep the grass at bay.
There is ample water storage with several dams scattered over the property. It also has access to the Cudgera Creek with a water licence to extract water for irrigation and outside watering systems.
The property is situated just west of Pottsville Village and has easy access to the motorway. 20 minutes to Gold Coast Airport and Byron Bay. Far enough away to be on your own, yet close enough for convenience.
This is homeâ?¦.. well it has been my family home for 40 yearsâ?¦. I know it won't suit everyone, but it was certainly a great place for my parents to bring up my brothers and I. There's plenty of 'space' for the kids to explore. They can spend hours fishing in the creek or the dam or chase a few cows around from dawn till dust.
