This charming permaculture homestead is ideal for live-in occupants. With garden beds nestled around a quaint circa 1904 church in the quiet village of Muttama, close to Cootamundra and Gundagai.
The original condition weatherboard Church has high a cathedral timber ceiling and the quality of light from the coloured glass arch windows is like living inside a rainbow. 4 years of spray free soil regeneration techniques has liberated the nutrient dense clay soil to allow permaculture gardens to prosper in the 3401 sqm block (3/4 acre), And there is still room to build separately on the site and keep the Church’s charm as a studio or Air BnB.
The church is surrounded by a shade cloth arch zone, providing a year round outdoor living area and ideal wicking bed microclimate. It includes eco features such as a composting toilet, grey water bio filter system and a unique glasshouse bathing facility.
The sale will include resources such as the seedling nursery, pots, wheelbarrow and a selection of hand tools required for the new owners to be set up for continuing the maintenance and development of the gardens.
Along with the Church there is also a four year old council approved creative workshop complex which covers 120+ sqm over several adjoining structures. The two main light industrial workshops have suspended flooring, insulated walls and ceiling and strategic skylights that light up this creative zone. The adjoining courtyard is paved and the ceiling has skylights to provide abundant natural light. Three smaller storerooms offer excellent weather sealed storage.
Power is mains supply, but all water is captured on site and currently our tanks are overflowing (a 27,000 litre stainless steel tank, a 22,000 litre poly tank, a 4000 litre garden tank and an 800 litre st/st header tank next to the church), subsequently the rates are a modest $530p/a. Within 2 km there is an Optus tower (hence excellent reception) and a small ‘locals only’ waste transit station.
Inspection is by appointment only.
