Just 3 minutes' drive from the centre of Kyogle and nestled into the side hills for supreme privacy is this absolute gem of a property. From the moment you enter the property and drive across the creek flats looking toward the tree-lined creek and timber hills you approach your own private bridge. The pre-1900s homestead stands grandly, hidden behind the magnificent fig trees. With a wide three-sided verandah wrapping around the house, French doors coming out of the bedrooms and timbered floors throughout, this is the house and property you have been waiting for to make your tree change.
The home features three large bedrooms (one with air-con); sunny lounge room with raked ceilings and air-con; grand dining room with fireplace; modern kitchen with big island bench, two-drawer dishwasher and Falcon cooker (electric oven & gas stove); charming bathroom with bathtub & separate shower; huge utility room with storage space & second toilet; and the extra-tall ceilings and wide hallways which characterise houses of this era. There's solar power and solar hot water, as well as an ample rainwater supply.
Surrounding the home are the beautiful established gardens featuring a number of mature fruit trees including citrus, pecans, olives, macadamia, mulberries, peach, dragon fruit, persimmon, guava and mango. The garden is watered by a timed drip system.
Water is a feature with Horse Station Creek running through the property. It has numerous swimming holes along the creek and an electric pump is set up to pump up to the header tanks to supply stock and garden water. There are also two bores and four dams as well as rainwater tanks for the house.
The property has two sets of cattle yards, horse stables, old dairy bails which have been partially restored, and numerous other out-buildings. Two huge sheds plus one small machinery shed provide ample storage.
The property has approximately 15 paddocks for cattle grazing. The creek flats and a plateau paddock can be farmed for cattle.The pasture has a mixture of seteria, rhodes, giant paspalum, native grasses and some wynn cassia. The soils are a mixture of red and black basalt and alluvial soils.
Being 3km from Kyogle, 40 minutes to Lismore, about an hour to Ballina Airport and just over 2 hours to Brisbane, the property is very well-located. The property would be ideal for setting up a B&B and under current conditions would run around 60-70 breeders and followers.
With views to the Border Rangers, this is simply a beautiful place to live - be quick to book your viewing!
