The Former Monkerai School House (1861) - your perfect retreat
In the craziness that is our ‘new world’ this delightful getaway on a small acreage delivers the peace and tranquility that allows you to relax, breathe and connect with what is important to you. Nestled in gorgeous Monkerai, a stone’s throw from Dungog and sitting on a blissful 8094sqm (2ac), with its steeply gabled roof, and wide covered U-shaped verandahs, the former Monkerai School House is reminiscent of the Little House on the Prairie. Step inside to a timber lined interior with high ceilings, sunlight streaming in through glass sliders and feature windows including a number of carefully restored stained glass windows. The open plan, studio-style floorplan includes a spacious, warm and inviting kitchen, dining, living and sleeping are with slow combustion heating and reverse-cycle air-conditioning. With its timber-look cabinetry, mini-orb splash back, electric cooktop and under-counter oven, the kitchen more than meets every need. An adjoining room offers a single bedroom, home office or study space. The spacious bathroom is well-appointed with shower over mini-bath, vanity with storage and toilet. The wide, covered front verandah is the perfect space to relax and dine alfresco while enjoying idyllic views over the gently undulating, fully fenced acreage, dotted with a variety of mature eucalypts and ample room for a horse, alpacas, chickens and vegetable gardens. Close proximity to the Karuah River is an exciting bonus. The former Monkerai School House offers an exciting opportunity to operate as a rental, BnB accommodation venue or enjoy your own weekend or permanent lifestyle paradise.
At the foothills of the World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park, an easy 20min drive from the vibrant tourist town of Dungog, 45mins to Gloucester and within 60mins drive to wineries, notable sites and the mid-north coast waterways and beaches, Monkerai has confirmed itself as a go-to owner-occupier and investor destination. It’s never too late to go back to school. Inspection of the former Monkerai School House is a must. You won’t be disappointed.

SPECIAL EDIT 26/7/2021: "Apologies, I have just discovered the advertised access to the Karuah river is incorrect because Crown Lands closed the relevant road reserve and sold it in 2015, which the vendors were unaware of.
The vendors advise that the river and bridge is just a short drive away by road from the schoolhouse and that they always used this option themselves. Apologies to anyone this may have inconvenienced. Denise"
