An energy efficient property, abundant water in a truly beautiful part of NSW, with easy access of the coast and forests. A future eco lifestyle now!

Sold - Krambach NSW

This is an easy house to live in with minimal costs due to extensive water storage and 10kw of solar power for domestic use and credit feed in.

The house has been built with an emphasis on energy efficiency and there is quality insulation in walls and ceilings. Each room is directly or indirectly heated or cooled by reverse cycle air conditioning units. In addition, the main living area has a wood stove.

These owners have converted two large paddocks and a hillside cleared of trees and no buildings into an excellent example of ecoproperty®. The hillside has revegetated and shade trees have been planted in the home paddocks. Flora and fauna thrive throughout the property but especially on the wooded hillside.

With lovely views of the valley and wooded hillside part of the property, the house is set in an elevated position in a garden of trees shrubs and shady walkways.

There are four-metre covered decks on two sides of the house and a two-metre covered deck on the third side. The house is designed for flexible living. There are two bedrooms; each bedroom has its own bathroom and sliding doors directly onto the deck. There is also a comfortable studio with views and deck, a bathroom and its own airconditioning unit.

Hot water is provided by its own solar system with electric backup.

Both the house and studio are supplied by rapid wireless broadband internet for working from home.

There is a carport for 2 cars and a 4 bay equipment shed which can be used for cars and other vehicles if preferred.

Some hobby farming with a few cattle or horses is possible, there are 2 dams. If you passionate about horses this may be ideal.

The horse section is divided into seven paddocks. There are two horse shelters. One shelter has a lock up hay store and is set in a yard with gates into three separate paddocks for horse management and grazing rotation. This shelter has its own water tank and trough. The horse shelter near the house has fully insulated walls and ceiling for horses who feel the heat and the cold. There is a feed room or general storeroom attached.

The far side of the hill is a large paddock, with its own dam, which has been used to graze a few cattle. The cattle have access to the dams, troughs. There is a creek that maintains water pools when not flowing.

In an earlier life as a dairy farm, this property has potential to establish a market garden with its good quality top soil and extensive water storage. Irrigation water for the garden is pumped from one of the dams to a header tank and another pump then sends the water through pipes to the garden. This is an ideal set up for extensive market garden growing. There is already a useful covered growing tunnel with a raised vegetable bed. If you wanted to convert to organics, the studio could be used for WWoofers.

There is a spacious four-bay farm shed that is set up for farm machinery and as a workshop with lighting and multiple power points.

The solar electricity system includes 2 x 5 kilowatt solar inverters providing 10 kilowatts of power with the potential to reach 13.4 kilowatts. The grid-connection to mains power means there is a feed-in credit from your energy supplier to minimise or cancel electricity bills.

Easy access by car with 15 Minutes to the Pacific Highway at Nabiac, 35 minutes to Forster, less than 2 hours to Newcastle, and 3 hours from Sydney
