Just a 16km drive to Coffs Harbour, 16.4km to Coffs Harbour Airport and 22.5km to Sapphire Beach, this property in Dairyville is a convenient yet private hideaway.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
This elegant and spacious country residence is set amid easy-to-care-for, established gardens and grounds. It has breathtaking views across the gardens to the fields and Bindarri National Park and mountains in the distance. It cannot be built out. More than generous 2.5 – 3.5 meter verandas surround the house and all living rooms lead to an under cover entertaining and dining pavilion that greets the most glorious country clear days. A short stroll across the garden leads to the river and its great swimming “pools”.
The only sounds are of the 76 “documented”species of birds – sugar gliders, the wedge tail eagle and both the satin bower bird and the regent bower bird – the trees attract. Camellias, bromeliads, fruit trees, magnolias, azaleas, bottle brush and grevillea are just some of the plantings. There is also platypus in the river and often spotted are turtles and wallabies.
The longest boundary of the property is the Urumbilum River and another is the private driveway to the house. So there is only one neighbouring property! This is a very large residence, suitable for family living and/or those who love to entertain on a grand scale. The open plan dining/kitchen/living rooms are spacious; the floors are local polished spotted gum, the kitchen appliances including the la Germania 5-burner gas stove are stainless steel and the “prep” island is perfect for the most demanding cook – so is the pantry!
There are wonderful views from all rooms, including the 5 bedrooms, with built in wardrobes. The master bedroom is, quite simply, the size of 2 rooms and has French doors to the deck and an en suite bathroom leading to the wide decks and gardens. The “walk around” wardrobe certainly has the WOW factor! There is a laundry/toilet, full bathroom and separate toilet that services the other bedrooms. Bedrooms are carpeted and lead to the exterior deckings. There is a large linen press and appliance cupboard in the hallway.
Now, let’s go outside. The property has 3 fenced paddocks and there is plenty of space for horses. There is an extra large, 12m x 7.5m insulated bay shed with workshop (that could be converted to accommodation), under cover parking for 6 vehicles, a gardening and wood shed and for water, there is a large 12,000 litre water tank and of course the water pumped from the river is the cleanest drinking water available.
Other features are excellent television reception, broadband/ADSL reception, high ceilings and an “inverter” energy efficient reverse cycle air conditioner in the living areas. There is a very valuable irrigation licence in place, which means water forever. Schools are nearby and the bus service runs daily to other educational facilities in Coffs Harbour.
This is a special and private estate, immaculately maintained and beautified – and those summer breezes are an additional blessing.
