House Site available - Shepherds Ground Rural Farm and Village land share community in the Hunter Valley, NSW

- Butterwick NSW

All visits and inspections by appointment only. See contact information below.

House site for sale (approximately 1000m2) in a rural land share community – 20 minutes from Maitland, NSW and 40 minutes to Newcastle and Port Stephens and close to primary schools and bus route for high schools.

This is a multi-generational community interested in biodynamic and organic farming practices, and a great place to raise kids close to nature.

Community values are based on being connected to the land, respecting and caring for the surrounding natural environment, creating a sustainable life that will continue for generations to come.

This is an off-grid community and houses are built from a range of ethical materials…composting loos are a must. Many of the initial houses used the hempcrete building material.

Originally set up through the State Environmental Planning Policy No 15 (SEPP 15) to encourage and facilitate the development of rural land sharing communities committed to environmentally sensitive and sustainable land use practices.

The total cost of a shareholding is $120,000 which gives you the right to a generous house site in a village of 27 dwellings, set within 112ha of farming land.

Currently, fourteen houses have been built with four in process.

Good quality dirt roads provide all weather access on the property.

property is owned by the company of which you become a shareholder and entitles you to receive a renewable 99-year license to occupy a site.

Community members are expected to join one of the community working groups which contribute to the tasks of managing a rural property and build a strong sense of community with all its challenges and rewards.

The property has wonderful wild places to walk in winter, abundant wildlife with wallabies and birdlife, plus the resident cows, pigs, chickens, resident pythons etc.

This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a vibrant community, to live a rural life, grow your own food, with opportunities for sustainable farm related ventures and live amongst nature, while still a stone’s throw from city amenities, beautiful beaches and airports.

You will need to be self-funded (banks will not lend against company shares) and community minded, with a desire to live more sustainably and get involved.

Please submit the property inquiry form and you will receive all the contact information and how to receive details, to have any questions answered, an information pack will be sent to you and you will be able to arrange your visit.
