6-Bedroom Modern Home on 5 Acres, 10 Titles
The ultimate in self-sufficiency, this modern 6 bedroom country home with 2.5 bathrooms & 2 living areas on 5 lush acres will tick all the boxes.
Situated on the edge of town, the house is private & well positioned on the fully fenced property & offers 360' views of the surrounding farmlands & mountains. Surrounding the house are 5 acres with fruit orchards & irrigated organically-grown vegetable gardens.
The 5 acre property is made up of 10 x half-acre blocks on 10 seperate titles, allowing the possibility of future sale of a block or two if necessary (STCA). Similar local half-acre blocks are currently selling for $60-80,000 each.
The property currently runs 4 Dorpa sheep as lawnmowers but would also lend itself to horses, cows or alpacas.
The extensive, well-established fruit orchards include various heirloom apple & pear varieties fully trained onto espallier frames, as well as blueberries, guavas, mulberries, strawberries, youngberries, figs, young avocados, various lemons & limes plus others. There are huge well-designed, irrigated & maintained, fenced vegetable gardens producing pumpkins, zucchinis, beans, peas, corn, squash, watermelons, tamarillos & many popular herbs, asparagus, zucchinis, horseradish, edible dandelion, etc throughout the seasons. The soil is rich & of excellent quality, suitable for growing produce with all areas of the property employing organic principles - no chemicals! In the center of the main vegetable garden there is a large chicken coop which provides composting & soil-improvement for the surrounding gardens & provides the home with good healthy eggs. If self-sufficiency is what you are seeking, this property has a lot to offer.
The property is fully fenced & divided into various paddocks & garden areas with the majority of fencing high-quality & in great condition.
The large, expansive home has six bedrooms (one is nominated as a Study) all with built-ins, linen cupboards, an open-plan kitchen with butlers pantry & main open living/dining area, a second family loungeroom with sliding doors, ensuite with shower, toilet & vanity off main bedroom, a main bathroom with bath, shower & vanity & another separate toilet with vanity - ideal for the large family or just a family who enjoys lots of space. Plenty of room for family to visit!
The house is approximately 28 meters long & almost 11 meters wide including a 2m wide fully-covered timber deck running right around. The 360 degree views from the fully surrounding verandah are spectacular, possibly some of the best in the area, looking north towards the edge of the township & on to mountains, south toward beautiful lush countryside as far as the eye can see.
The home is fully insulated with a split-system air conditioner, also with two whirligigs fitted to the roof to maximise cooling. There are two eco-friendly hot water systems in place. The original instantaneous gas system remains in place with a changeover valve allowing it to be used again in the future if necessary. Also installed is a new high-quality Apricus Solar Hot Water System with two evacuated tube collector panels on the roof providing plenty of free hot water. There is also a dual water supply - a combination of town water & rainwater tank with huge capacity. A simple changeover valve allows choice of optimal water source depending on rain, garden irrigation needs, etc.
The property is located in Bemboka in the top end of the beautiful dairy region of the Bega Valley in Southern NSW. A small, friendly town on the Snowy Mountains Highway just 54 Km from beautiful Tathra Beach & just over an hour from Jindabyne - so great beaches & Snowy Mountains are both within easy reach. The bustling town of Bega with the new $187Million Hospital is just 25 minutes away. Three nearby airports make it easy to get anywhere - Merimbula Airport - 40 mins, Cooma Airport - 55 mins, Canberra Airport less than 2 hrs (International). Sydney/Melbourne Coaches pass right by.
