Amazing Lifestyle with Income PotentialProperty ID 1542020Built on 55 hectares of undulating bush, this home/eco retreat has views to wow, with no neighbours in sight. Running from the hill top house at 710 m with 360 views, down 2.7 kms of internal roads to the Wollondilly River and your private floating pontoon where you can swim, fish or kayak. Close by there's a campsite with bush cook-house kabana, fire pit and cleared sites for camping, plus one permanent tent.
Back at the house, enjoy spacious, indoors outdoors' style living. One section of the house can be closed off and used as a self-contained apartment, with its own bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and private entrance.
Over 80% of flooring is covered in hard wood timbers, accentuated by a stone (10 sqm) feature wall which houses a clean burn fireplace. The large open plan living area is fitted with a commercial kitchen and dining area, where bi-fold doors open onto a wonderful 150 sqm patio. This area leads to your own small amphitheater. There's always a sunny or shaded spot to be found in or around the house.
The lounge/dining areas offer fabulous views through 4 m high windows. On spring and autumn mornings you can find yourself above the cloud filled valleys for another amazing wow view.
This bespoke 3 cantilevered roof, passive solar designed house, incorporates many energy and green features that facilitate a low carbon impact. All without sacrificing any modern day living. From the self-sufficiency of filtered rain water and the powerful solar system for electricity, though to differing E values in the double glazed window glass. These windows are designed to allow the most amount of light and breeze while minimising summer sun and maximising winter heat.
Feel at one with nature along the 7 kms of walking tracks, which harmonise with animal trails where possible. These trails lead from the house down to a custom built dam area, where you can relax with a rustic bush shelter, fire pits and siting areas, then on to the camping area and the river.
Over 500 indigenous trees were planted near the house encouraging a wide variety of bird life. All this, plus an enclosed vegetable and herb gardens, complete with automatic watering system.
Come and enjoy your own private sanctuary, without sacrificing modern living comfort and convenience.
