Situated in a picture-perfect, peaceful, private location this beautiful property offers a rare opportunity to enjoy the country with the added bonus of fantastic mountain views from all around the home and a 600 tree Olive Grove. This property is an ideal hideaway from city life but still within an easy 40-minute drive to Canberra or 25-minute drive to Cooma.
Positioned in your own little valley the peaceful rural outlook is second to none. The beautiful tree lined entrance road is the first thing you notice creating a magic driveway to the house. Once there you'll love the full-length front verandah, a great spot to relax and take in the vista of the Mountains all day long.
But that's only half the story, this lovely 3/4 bedroom home is very unique with plenty of features and benefits like: large spacious separate living room with high timber ceilings, exposed beams and slow combustion fire, feature brick walls throughout, separate dining room and family room again with high ceilings and second cosy warm slow combustion fire, large kitchen with loads of cupboard space and island bench, slate floors in living/kitchen areas, and huge master suite again with high ceilings, big robe with its own built-in desk, timber lined bathroom and the majority of the house has double glazed windows, including the large slider off the dining room.
Out back opening off the dining room you'll enjoy the spacious covered enclosed BBQ pergola area providing a great space for kids to play or entertain your family and friends while enjoying each other's company.
The property offers 101 acres (41.22 hectares) with a combination of open paddock space and treed woodland areas well suited to run a few stock or horses. There are four securely fenced paddocks, covering an area of approximately 30 acres with water troughs which fill automatically by gravity feed from two dedicated bore water tanks. One tank being the major 50,000L tank and a smaller tank feeding two troughs on the paddocks adjacent to Colyers Creek.
The bonus is a fully established Olive grove (planted in 2003/2004) of over 600 trees made up of the 5 varieties producing both extra virgin olive oil and table olives which offer a great opportunity to earn some extra income. The trees are well established now and produce a regular yearly crop of olives that have been sold as either table olives or pressed into extra virgin olive oil.
Also included is a very usable and well set up additional space above the garage which would be great as a 4th kids bedroom, room for extended family, studio, rumpus room or guest bedroom.
It should also be noted in today's drought conditions the property offers excellent water storage with 5 x rain water tanks collecting approximately 80,000L of rain water plus add additional 25,000L header tank where rain water is pumped to before a separate pump is the pressure pump servicing the home internally. The owners have said "in all our 17 years on the property we have never run out of rainwater even during very dry spells". In addition there is a 50,000L tank dedicated to bore water and the bore water is used for flushing of toilets, animal water troughs and throughout the garden through an extensive system of taps.
It is a spectacular place to enjoy the Australian bush.
