The owner of the wonderful “Wallendoon”, an historic homestead in Cudal, near Orange in New South Wales, Australia, recently shared with us why they love the home and the area:
“Cudal is 30 minutes from Orange, one of the fastest growing towns in New South Wales. The community spirit is alive and well and there is so much to do in the area. We have three hatted chef restaurants, vineyards, orchards, arts, crafts, drama, food markets, sports to watch and play for all, and some notable locals. Orange is home of Michael Manners, who was last year inducted into the Foodies Hall of Fame. Perhaps this is why Orange has a “Slow Food Movement”.
What I love about living here is the sense of peace and tranquility, having so much space and knowing you overlook the Village of Cudal, where you can see movement, giving comfort knowing you are not isolated.
I love waking up to the beautiful birdsongs and then watch them play while sitting on the verandah with a morning coffee. The wonderful feeling of satisfaction for a job well done when the roses are in bloom, when vegetables take pride of place on the dining table, and the fruits can be eaten straight from the trees, all from our magnificent gardens.
Welcoming friends and family to enjoy our wonderful surrounds and stay is a joy. Guests enjoy their own privacy in rooms off the courtyard, where they can sip a nightcap or enjoy an early morning cup of tea. Best of all are the winter dinner parties held in the magnificent dining room with the open fire, creating a wonderful ambiance.
“Wallendoon” has been restored out of love and I am sure someone will love the home as much as we have.”
“Wallendoon” is located on Merga Street, Cudal and was built from late 1899, and has since been lovingly and thoroughly restored to its original condition. Set on 24 beautiful acres, the property fronts onto Boree Creek, a flowing trout stream, and features magnificent views overlooking the township of Cudal towards Mount Canobolas.
