This is what rural lifestyle bliss looks like
If ‘bliss’ were an image, it would be this delightful 7.28ha (18.8ac) boutique rural lifestyle property Located in Tibbuc. With a tranquil rural setting, breathtaking valley and hill views and a full kilometre of the Manning River frontage meandering along one boundary, there is much to offer buyers seeking a relaxed, more self-sufficient lifestyle in a sought-after location. The craftsman built split level Colourbond home is designed and sited to offer an indoor/outdoor lifestyle that maximises its aspect. Nestled into a gentle hill, the ground level offers a double bedroom, well-appointed bathroom and spacious rumpus room making this area ideal as a teenager’s retreat, guest accommodation or excellent home office. There is also a spacious laundry with external access. A wide, covered front verandah and spacious double carport/caravan space or additional entertainment area make this a very versatile space.
Atop the internal staircase is the heart of the home. Soaring cathedral ceilings, beautiful polished hardwood floorboards and a light-filled interior that merges the home with its stunning surroundings deliver superb living. Accessible from every room, verandahs on three sides offer plenty of year-round relaxation and alfresco dining spaces. Free-flowing living and dining areas flow to the bespoke kitchen which is an entertainer’s dream. Beautiful timber cabinetry, sweeping bench space including island bench, Agga-style range with gas cooktop and electric oven, butler’s sink, dishwasher and pull out wall pantry will bring out the master chef in every cook. The sophisticated Master suite boasts BIR, stylish ensuite and French doors to the verandah. Two further queen-size bedrooms each with BIR share a modern, centrally located family bathroom with vanity, bath, shower, and toilet. With its lovely views and dual access to the verandah, a spacious craft/games room/study is a very appealing space. Irrigation to low maintenance garden beds and manicured lawns gently rolling to a delightful rock-bordered fishpond make for lovely play spaces. Additional features include reverse-cycle air-conditioning, slow combustion heating, ceiling fans, enviro-cycle waste-management system, 30000lt rainwater tank, front gate mail delivery, and cute ranch-style tin shed with glass sliding doors to a small deck. An artist’s studio or potential self-contained B&B being possible options.
Away from the home there is a diverse orchard, vegetable garden framework, enormous, fully fenced chicken yard and separate yard fenced for goats, both with shedding and piped water. The excellent infrastructure makes for a seamless transition to a more self-sustainable lifestyle.
Gently undulating, the acreage, largely cleared to grazing and dotted with shade trees enjoys a carrying capacity of 4-5 steers, 8-10 sheep/alpacas or up to 30 goats. A Colourbond shed is ideal plant/machinery storage while a set of timber cattle yards at the roadside facilitates stock movement to and front the property. Bordered by a lovely stand of native timber, the riverbank is home to native flora and fauna, delightful swimming holes and picnic spots. Pumping rights, 1 x dam and average rainfall of 38” provides ample water for stock and hobby farming pursuits, even during the driest conditions.
With Gloucester’s primary and secondary schools, shops, and services only 20 minutes away and Forster’s beaches only 1.5hrs away, and this beautiful lifestyle property to return to, the image of bliss is very much a reality. Price Guide: $790,000
