The Best of Town and Country
Beautiful block 855m2 allotment with established trees, tons of light, wildlife, and a part ownership in 10ha (25ac) of surrounding land as well as a neighbourhood house boasting a gathering area, kitchen, guest accommodation, and a communal laundry for all to use.
The Bega Valley has so much to offer with spectacular beaches and mountains 15mins away, as well as hosting all the services needed including the new Regional Hospital.
Nestled within the Bega Eco-Neighbourhood Development (Bend), a unique sustainable Community title development, the north-facing block offers views of the bordering organically certified rural community lands with a natural swimming pool, dams, orchard, sheds and community house.
The Bega River is a short stroll away (400m), and a 10 min walk gets you to the heart of Bega, passing by the local Steiner school a mere 2 min away.
It’s location fosters a beautiful balance of town stimulation, open community and rural lifestyle. Swim in the Bega River, milk a goat and walk to town.
More specifically, this 855 sqm block (60m x 15m) on a gentle slope has a generous 14m x 15m building envelope, allowing for a partial double story construction, leaving scope - if you wish - for the development of your own agricultural endeavour, anything from a market garden to organic goat cheese.
This beautiful blank canvas, boasting the only established deciduous oak tree near the house site, provides good summer shade and plentiful warm winter sun, is limited only by one’s imagination and creativity.
The block is part of Bend, a socially and economically inclusive neighbourhood with a consensus decision making platform and a strong focus on supportive community and sustainability.
Included are orchards and infrastucture such as fire-fighting equipment, photovoltaic panels, greywater recycling systems and the fully furnished neighbourhood house available for guests, classes and events. Adding to the enjoyment of the area a diverse mix of well-established native plants blankets the Anabranch conservation area attracting a myriad of birds and other wildlife.
Bend is managed using Permaculture principles, which integrates areas for nature conservation, abundant food production, and sustainable housing. The whole community is water self-sufficient with water captured on site and hygienically recycled using vegetation ponds.
