Only two hours from Sydney this is one of those very rare opportunities to have you very own stone homestead with all modern conveniences. Only 18 years old there's not a penny to spend. The solid double cavity stone Homestead is warm in winter and cool in summer. Due to the clever orientation of this home, winter time sees the sunshine stream in the huge front windows. But, in summer not one ray of hot sun makes its way in. Downstairs there are 3 lovely bedrooms with stone walls, French doors and built in wardrobes. Upstairs there's a huge bedroom / sitting room, approached from a wide mezzanine area, this bedroom has an large en-suite bathroom which includes a spa bath. There's also a spacious walk in wardrobe and TV facility. The opposite east west gable windows offer lovely views and cross breeze for summer plus there air conditioning. Back downstairs there's bathroom, with a bath, shower and toilet, plus there's a separate toilet nearby. The living room is a huge open plan room with the kitchen at the eastern end enjoying morning sunshine. The atmosphere of this breathtaking room is enhanced by a large slow combustion heater. The wonderful timber lined cathedral ceilings are supported by a huge tree trunk which has been naturally decorated by beetles which carved wonderfully intricate squiggly patterns all over its surface. The stone interior walls, which stretch up 7 metres into the gables, are studded with quartz Crystals! All the stone was found here on this property. It is completely quiet here with our lovely neighbours being out of sight and earshot. The panoramic views are to the east. The homestead is set high (about 700 metres) on a hill with the beautiful Towrang valley laid out before it.
