This property is full of lots of opportunities for the discerning buyer. Situated on a high plateau (280m above sea) with 360 views located in the Border Ranges of the Northern Rivers district of New South Wales.

This property is a model of sustainability. There are mature bearing fruit trees and a well-established, producing permaculture garden with raised beds.

There is good native pasture for horses or a mix of other livestock for self-sustainability. As well as a working chook house and yard. A variety of small birds and native bees abound, as well as many species of native wildlife.

The main house has a large open plan kitchen/living/dining and a separate formal dining area. It includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a loft and large veranda. The main bedroom has it's own private full sized bathroom and wardrobe.

The house is in excellent condition. Only 10 years old and recently painted. It was architecturally designed to suit the climate and accommodate passive heating and cooling principles.

It is possible to observe wildlife from most rooms in the home, which has 10 foot verandahs on the South and paved access between the buildings and garden areas. There is always a good breeze in summer months and the winter sun is accessible to the living areas.

A Guest Cabin (granny flat) is fully self contained and situated adjacent to formal garden beds that provide privacy from the other buildings.

A Clinic/Studio/Professional Rooms/Home Office is a multi functional space with access to the orchards as well as the patio area, with a separate entrance for the treatment room, with separate clinic/office and toilet.

The Equipment shed has large opening doors for equipment access, work benches and storage shelves built in as well as a central covered area for maintenance, and areas for lots of timber storage.

Large shed/studio/craft room with its own toilet.

Ionised pool, outside shower & large wood fired sauna.

Fully self-sufficient with 100% solar power featuring a massive standalone 48V solar energy system. New German gel-batteries updated December 2014. Mains power close by. Plenty of power to operate all of the buildings, house, fridges/freezers, pumps and any number of media devices.

Water is the key to survival in the bush and there is an abundance of water resources on the property. Back Creek runs along the Eastern boundary and a 111 meter well into basalt provides excellent quality drinking water. Other water storage includes 3 x 30000 L and 2x 45000 L tanks.

A large 3.5 million litre dam supports an aquaculture program stocked and harvested in 2 year cycles with over 200 Silver Perch and Bass ready to harvest.

The 111 m deep well with documented excellent mineral water (potential for bottled water business).

Orchard with over 200 Olive trees and 90 fruit and nut trees with multiple watering points. The orchard consists of many varieties of fruit , nuts, olives and citrus. All edible including the bamboo.

The diversity of such an orchard guarantees some harvest every year as different trees do better in some years than others.

Overall there is a good balance of food produced. Winters are full of citrus and summer brings tropical fruits like Mango & Sapote.

Watering points have been placed throughout the orchard for small crops like garlic, melons, pumpkins or lilies.

Easy access to water makes ploughing and sowing small crops a winner.

Multiple Grasstree forests, paddocks and mixed forest.

Mount Warning is an extinct volcano caldera and provides a lush environment for the rain forest area, which is famous for fresh water. Water bottling companies export water from this region due to its purity and mineral content that comes from deep layers of basalt excellent for filtration.

Surrounded by National Parks, the property is located at the base of Homeleigh Mountain, and is an active partner with the New South Wales Parks and Wildlife conservation program.

The area is recognised for its diverse cultural stability providing homes for farmers, cowboys and alternative lifestyles. Both Casino and Kyogle host annual rodeo events and Nimbin is the home of the Aquarius Festival and the annual Mardi Gras.
