Appeal of a rustic homestead with the all the advantages of a modern home


Constructed in 2009 from local stone, self-sufficient and off grid.

Sourced from the surrounding hills and valleys the owners have lifted one heavy stone upon another to build walls 450mm thick creating an ideal, ecofriendly and energy efficient home.

Are you looking to get away from the hustle a bustle of busy life? Step out of the main stream and get back to nature. Here is a rare opportunity to walk straight into this 142 acre rural lifestyle property.

Whether you’re looking to cut and bale hay, run sheep or outsource management to a friendly community of neighbours as the current owners do, this property is country living at it’s best.

Alternatively you could develop and cultivate a natural environment for the native wildlife in the area.

Designed with grandeur, step through the entry and along the wide passage to the combined kitchen, meals and living areas all of mammoth proportions, perfect for entertaining. Centre of all is an eye-catching carousel wood heater spinning sparks behind the glass, creating a warm glow to every corner of the room.

There is a proportionality large country kitchen which has a sit up breakfast bar with ample bench, cupboard and storage space.

There are 4 king-size bedrooms that offer space to spread out, the master has an ensuite and WIR.

Double French doors open onto an undercover outdoor Entertaining area with distant views over the valley floor below.
