Peaceful, private lifestyle.... priceless!
This gorgeous park like homestead includes a heritage style 4 bedroom homestead as well as a fully functional cottage, built on a stunning green rolling landscape displaying gorgeous views from every angle. The property has been long established in the historic Sandy Flat area in the Northern Rivers, and is close to the booming township of Tenterfield NSW 2372. Embellished in new England style landscaping and horticulture, the property has been carefully planted with deciduous trees and fruiting mulberries to compliment the green pasture and grazing lifestyle. Meandering down the scenic driveway, colours change throughout the seasons as the Liquidambars (sp. sweetgum) turn from green to red signalling the coming winter; the beauty of the farm really is sensational year round!
Originally a sheep and ram stud, the land has exceptional grazing and is well watered with 7 dams, 3 genuine fresh water springs and seasonal run-off tributaries that course over little rock waterfalls. There are also several rain water tanks, amounting to over 60,000L of separate rain water storage, with options to increase by adding tanks to the sheds and garage, although owners have stressed the point that they have never run out of water.
The property boasts all new main water lines throughout the whole property, bringing water to every paddock to service the needs of animals and installed with the intention of establishing more fruit and nut tree orchards in the fields close to the house.
4 bedroom steel post eco-board and Timber house with Hardwood front and rear decks raised off the ground for termite proofing and view vantage. The house is fully insulated, very sturdy and well constructed by a licensed builder with over 60 years experience. Country homestead feel with ergonomic design, there is plenty of functional storage throughout the house. Open plan kitchen and living, warmed in winter by a wood stove fireplace with private bedrooms that open each side of the house onto the wide verandahs. Laundry and muck-off room at the rear entry to the house keep muddy feet clean, with additional freezer and storage space. 2 generous master bedrooms at opposite ends of the house make for a very spacious and private living arrangement, complimenting the cozy feel to the home. The entire house has recently been painted inside and professionally cleaned throughout.

Premises is less than 2 years old and custom designed for low maintenance and to meet the environmental and behavioural needs of dogs. All steel and hardwood design, with lush grass and big iron-bark trees giving shade.

Multiple fully fenced pastures support rotational grazing for cattle (up to 50 head), horses, sheep, donkeys, alpacas and a few families of native wallabies, kangaroo, goanna and echidna. Big old shade trees are spread out nicely in the fields and are home to the occasional koala sighted, while hardwood forest of stringy and iron bark surround the vista. Firebreaks have been maintained along the perimeter, and the Sandy Flat Rural Fire Station is right across the road for local support and Friday arvo coldies with the crew.
