Now sold - lovely secluded valley
Impressively designed passive solar home plus a 1/8 share in 900 acres of pristine bushland and mixed pasture.
The house is full of light and using passive-solar principles means that it is cool in summer and warm in winter.
A permanent creek runs through rainforest areas with recognised high environmental values, adjacent to Copeland Tops State Conservation Area. Over a hundred species of birds have been observed on the property, from blue wrens to wedge-tail eagles. Echidnas, wallabies and koalas are also in residence.
Here is an opportunity to have a beautiful home and a rural lifestyle, while sharing the work of running a rural property.
Features of the home, built in 2010 include:
flexible living spaces with central open-plan living room
superb, uninterrupted views over rainforest and creek
vaulted ceilings, polished concrete floors, ceiling fans, wood heater
reverse brick veneer construction
louvres for cross-ventilation
solar power feeding back to the grid
solar hot water system
Biolytix wastewater system
NBN satellite with wifi setup
2 x 20,000 litre rainwater tanks
The house garden has 40 assorted fruit trees, large vegetable plots, chook house and small tool shed.
By buying the home, you become one of eight families participating in using the community land. Essential infrastructure (road, electricity) is in place, and the community is working on a range of projects, including bush regeneration, a herd of cattle and a small pecan orchard. The farm has a tractor and other equipment.
The property is in a secluded valley, yet only 15 minutes from Gloucester. There is a school bus and mail service. Gloucester is a local centre with cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, boutique shops, hospital and a regular train service to Sydney.
