2286 Wymah Rd, Wymah NSW 2640

It is not often a 1 acre block is available in the middle of farming country, surrounded by the and beautiful valleys and with Lake Hume close by.

In the 1800s this acre plot was the site of a church in a small settler’s hamlet. The church building was moved to Granya across the Murray.

Left behind were the forest river gums which over that last 100 years plus have increased in majesty.
The block has been part of the organic farm for 20 years that now surrounds it.

So here is an opportunity to enjoy a country lifestyle, chemical free but without the responsibility of a large acreage. Enjoy the endless views of the farms around.

The land is peppered with old growth red gums, with a good-sized area for your eco build set away from the road and sheltered from wind.

Here you can go off grid (or on) settle into a quiet way of regenerating a special piece of land back to nature’s way.

There is a clear area near the house site for a permaculture garden and orchard and enough for rotating chooks.

The soil comes up well with care and time – you can see the prospering olive trees nearby.

The North Arm of Lake Hume can be seen nearby.

A trip to town (Albury) can be taken via the Hume highway or via the free ferry over the Murray River and a lakeside drive.

There is the lakeside community area with tennis courts around the corner from this land.

The school bus collects the kids and the bus driver never fails.

The stunning beauty of the valley never lets you down either.

If of interest, you may want to be involved in the next ventures on the organic farm that surrounds you.

Or you may want peace and quiet to camp now, enjoy the location and facilities, and build your tiny home, or a fabulous eco design house and lifestyle property over time.

The property is fenced, and the driveway access will shortly be completed.

Expressions of interest are until June 15, 2022 unless sold prior. All Offers will be considered.

147 Sandy’s Hill Road, Durham Lead Vic 3352

Under Contract – Situated 4 kms from the historic township of Buninyong (which is 12 kms from Ballarat on the Ballarat/Geelong Road.)

Approximately two thirds (5.581 ha) of the property is under covenant with Trust for Nature because of its high ecological value. The bush is predominantly Messmate/Peppermint tree cover with Blackwood/Bursaria mid-storey and varied herbaceous groundcover.

The cleared area (3.828 ha) includes the building envelope and the domestic zone for all the human and animal activity.

The building envelope is in a cleared area towards the top of an eastern facing slope which overlooks the occasional creek that runs the length of the property.

Mains power is on the covenanted area boundary. However, this property is perfect for establishing your high quality eco home utilising the many eco designs products and services for off-grid living.

There are 3 dams and several seasonal waterholes.

The area between the main dam and a small wetland area next to Brennan’s Road would be the ideal site to set up a permaculture productive garden. It is flat, has road access, permanent water and good soil. Previously a pony was kept in what is now the rundown paddock and water was pumped from the dam. So this would be the best site for an animal enclosure if you wanted one.

It is a bird watchers’ paradise, also frequented by swamp wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos, koalas and echidnas. Historically a mining area, there are some shallow shafts and mullock heaps remaining along the creekline.

All the necessary reports addressing planning overlays have been completed already leaving you free to plan your dream home with independent power and water.

Please submit the property inquiry form and you will be sent the Section 32 which contains the Reports and covenant details. This is very valuable to be able to commence the process of building your eco home immediately. You can also SMS 0468 489 333 with your request and please advise Durham Lead property.

Lot 18/203 Staniland Drive, Strathdickie Qld 4800

2 Ha of pristine tropical rainforest on a hillside in the Whitsunday area – with a modest 2BR cottage – ready for a new custodian.

The property is situated in rural Strathdickie at the end of a good bitumen road, 10 mins from Proserpine, 20mins from PPP airport and 15mins from Whitsunday coast.

It adjoins National Park.

It has a brilliant balance of being accessible but with the feeling of complete detachment from human chaos. The peace is astounding. The privacy is that of billionaire’s remote island but has grid electricity and a garbage service.

The property retains 98% of original forest cover. Other adjoining properties are also naturally forested and have existing buildings that cannot be seen and are rarely heard (only one with a dog, an aged one that never barks).

The cottage was built by a respected local builder in 1994 for a dedicated conservationist. It was built strong, but humble. A thorough renovation of the kitchen and a complete rebuild of the bathroom, both done with ease of use and ease of cleaning prioritised (plus safety advice from Occupational Therapist), completely new gal-steel and hardwood stairs, electrical and other refurbishments, were completed earlier this year.

It has the feel of a tree-house but is fully screened, dry, safe, and very comfortable. A recent guest remarked, “As the days passed I could feel my blood pressure decrease and an overwhelming desire to stay forever”.

To be 100% clear, there are no fences, no bore, no potential for clearing or farming. It’s forest. Pure, and simple. The cottage was discretely inserted with minimal impact achieved. The only other construction is the modest carport. There are no exotics, is kept weed free with little effort, and there’s no lawn to bother with.

The bio-type is seasonally-dry Wet sclerophyll forest, home to the threatened Proserpine Rock Wallaby, and the bird list from a local expert is 100 species. Beyond the site of the Cottage the land is mostly steep, with some majestic trees and lots of Rock-wallaby-friendly rocks. There is no formal delineation with the National Park, and as there are no tracks or other human facilities, no one ever visits.

Registration of the property as a Nature Refuge with Queensland Government – Department of Environment and Science, is currently underway.

The appeal of privacy and lack of disturbance is of enormous value. Cottage cannot be overlooked by anyone, cannot be seen from roadway.

The forest type is naturally fire resistant and is not known to have ever burnt. Two significant cyclones have affected the area in the life of the cottage and it sustained no damage.

There is storage underneath the cottage and enough height to allow for a potential workshop. There are two water tanks in fair condition, a water pump, and potential to increase capacity and collect from carport. Drinking water is filtered and UV treated.

It is available fully furnished (as pictured), preferably on a 30 day settlement.

It would be ideal for those looking for a wilderness retirement, those seeking a work-from home escape, or even those busy working who just want to live simply and peacefully in a clean environment and don’t have Old-Macdonald-ee-i-ee-i-owe fantasies. It has been listed on AirBnb and this remains an option with current arrangement for those not wishing to occupy immediately or full-time.

Please submit the property inquiry form to receive all the details of how to have any further questions answered and to arrange your visit.

114-118 Stirling Road, Metung Vic 3904

Under Contract

Meet ‘Gwandoban’ so perfectly named as it means ‘rest’ in the language of the Kurnai tribes of Gippsland. A very rare Gippsland Lakes property of 1.49HA with a hilltop character house at the end of a long driveway in the heart of the Metung peninsula.

Uninterrupted magnificent lake and mountain views open up at the top of the driveway from the house and surrounding lush lawns and terraces to the Victorian Alps to the north and across Bancroft Bay and Bass Strait to the east that can never be built out.

Over the past 40 years the current and previous owners have created a tranquil sanctuary and lifestyle retreat at this property which has Land for Wildlife registration.

What we love about the house is its originality and rural charm. How refreshing to visit a house that is of its time that has been respected. The comfortable house was built in the late 70s to suit the site and climate and its amenities and comforts have been regularly updated by the current owners who have used it as a holiday and weekend retreat. It has never been rented out but has been loaned to writers and artists as a tranquil place to create surrounded by nature.

Over almost 20 years, it became the perfect getaway, cosy living and great outdoor spaces for relaxing. Just like them, we appreciate its quirkiness and simplicity, it is loved and well maintained.

We have seen many a cork floor over the years, but this property has quite stunning cork walls as you can see in the study and hall. The owners have retained them for their acoustic qualities and originality.

The house with its traditional verandahs that provide shade and shelter has timber lined ceilings, all the up-to-date conveniences and two Velux skylights (facing east and south) with in-built adjustable blinds in the living areas that flood those areas with natural light. In slab electric heating in 2 zones with thermostats, reverse cycle heater and air-conditioning in the living room, a Clean –Air wood burner fireplace, new Noirot electric panel heaters in bedroom 1 and 2, and ceiling fans in all bedrooms, living/dining room and studio. All bedrooms have walk in robes, a very unusual feature allowing for a lot of extra storage. The master bedroom has an adjacent room that can also be used as retreat/study and has an en-suite. There is a spacious renovated family bathroom and recently refurbished laundry.

Recently the owners commissioned an architect to prepare plans to expand the house. They are happy to share with you their architect’s adaptable and scalable concept floor plans for an extension to match the fantastic location to review. As their family has grown up and moved overseas they now want to pass this unique property to others to appreciate and enjoy, in the same way that it was passed to them.

The Gippsland Lakes has a wonderful climate with mild winters. The well insulated house was carefully sited and constructed to be naturally warm in winter and cool in summer, with its northerly and easterly aspects capturing the cooling easterly sea breezes in summer and sheltered from the south westerly winds.

The hill top location enable the occupants to watch the morning sea mists roll in from Bass Strait over the tree top and the clouds hanging in the valleys to the north. As well as watching the magnificent dawn colours as the sun rises over the sea.

It’s lovely inside/outside living with bedrooms 1 and 2 and living areas having water, treetop and bushland views. The master bedroom has its own direct access to the garden, terrace, deck and spa.

The Vortex Xenon 8 person spa is recessed into a large deck with glass safety fence built 7 years ago that provides totally joyful experiences out to the sky, the sea, the bush. The owners use it all year round.

The house is perfect for working from home on a full or part-time basis. It has NBN connected, excellent mobile coverage. There is also excellent TV reception and TV aerial points throughout. Whilst there are home office and working spaces within the house, the current design of the two “studios” could be converted for this purpose or have a bathroom added for use as a rentable apartment. Its separation from the home on the other side of the carport section works well for easy access and separate parking for visitors or clients.

The well-maintained garden and surrounds have a mix of native vegetation and lawn areas including a fenced and irrigated vegetable garden/orchard. Growing fruit and vegetables here has been a passion of the previous owners with a wonderful north facing slope. The veggie garden has produced copious crops of zucchini, tomatoes, fava beans, eggplant, corn, potatoes and herbs over many years. In recent times the fruit trees have produced large crops of nectarines and peaches and there are also lemon, grapefruit, cumquat and apple trees producing seasonal fruit as well as a grove of olive trees.

On a lower section of the land in the area perfect for children exploring, the odd game of footy or cricket, additional fruit and nut trees and vines could also be grown.

It has undercover drive-through parking for up to 4 cars and boats, as well as a large shed (10m x 5m) and workshop with concrete floor for hobbies or craft occupations or for additional storage of a large boat and trailer or caravan. It includes built in work benches and shelving with spotlights and fluorescent lights and power.

The property has town water and sewerage. Also ideal to install a photovoltaic system on the north and west facing roofs for excellent solar electricity.

How nice is to be able to walk everywhere. The Metung Primary School is a 5 minute walk (180m) from the front gate. The town itself is a leisurely 10-minute stroll to Metung Village with a variety of routes there and back along the Lake King beaches, the Bancroft Bay boardwalk or down Stirling Road. The Metung bush reserve with its varied walking trails that can lead to the property is almost next door.

Metung is a delightful waterfront village with excellent cafes, cake shops and deli, a bakery and a historic pub as well as a post office and general store.

Bairnsdale, 20 minutes away has all professional services and is the major regional town servicing north east Victoria.

This is the perfect property for those in to boating, fishing, sailing, caravans with sheds and carports and is also highly adaptable for creative pursuits.

Enjoying the birds and native animals from all the surrounding bushland is another gorgeous feature.

As the eastern boundary of the property is currently not fenced, there is access along the boundary track from the nearby bush reserve to the property’s lower eastern grasses, and a wildlife corridor has been established down the northern boundary to the native bush areas of the property where native Hyacinth Orchids appear in summer. From the deck and terraces hawks and pelicans are regularly watched gliding on the thermals over the eastern part of the property.

Echidnas regularly visit the house surrounds and blue tongue lizards explore the veggie garden and sugar gliders are in the grove of remnant grey box near the house.

Birds that visit are Crimson Rosellas, Eastern Rosellas, King parrots , Lorikeets, Owls, Fairy Wrens, Magpies, Kookaburras, Galahs and Wattle birds Honeyeaters as well as the occasional heron.

This is a beautiful and peaceful retreat which offers huge opportunities to capitalise on the house and large landholding STCA in this much loved East Gippsland village with its boating and eco-tourism attractions.

It lends itself not only to owner occupation but also as a lifestyle eco-tourist accommodation for investment and perhaps the addition of additional accommodation subject to planning permission.

Please visit our website to see the ecoproperty® Guide to this property or submit the property inquiry form to request it.

There is the further opportunity to purchase a 10 metre berth on a multi-year lease at nearby Chinaman’s Creek subject to Council approval – terms to be advised.
