Restored, historic country home

Positioned in the highly sought after Upper Orara Valley, this beautifully restored 100 year old country farmhouse has been given a new lease of life. Situated on a rise the home overlooks forty hectares of gently sloping paddocks and fertile river flats beneath the Great Dividing Range.

This historic home boasts the original façade; bull nosed verandahs; polished hardwood timber floorboards; 12 foot pressed metal ceilings; leadlight and sash hung painted timber windows; original fireplaces in two bedrooms; wide moulded skirtings and architraves, in addition to as many of the original doors and hardware, as could be retained.

Designed to complement the home's country character, previous owners added a northern wing. Solidly constructed with an exterior stone façade, this grand addition provides a generous second living room with soaring ceilings, combustion wood-fired heater and access outdoors to the delightful stone courtyard and the swimming pool beyond.

Parents will appreciate the privately located master bedroom which features four graceful windows framing lovely rural vistas. A unique walk through robe leads to a colourful tiled bathroom with shower, separate toilet facility and a private entry to the courtyard.

Designed for family life, the two living areas have easy access to a central kitchen and dining space. An adjoining practical and compact home office features a desk and shelving artfully crafted from local timber.

The older wing of the home contains the original entry hall leading to three bedrooms with timber floorboards, two with pressed metal ceilings and fireplaces. A large main bathroom offers an open shower space, luxurious claw foot bath and ornate vanity cabinet with double basins. A separate WC is privately located at the end of the hall.

There's plenty of space to relax outdoors with delightful timber verandahs and flagstone courtyard at the rear of the home. Beautiful and extensive stonework features in the gated entry, exterior walls and landscaping, adding to the grandeur of this charming home.

Significant features of the 120 acre property include approximately one kilometre of river frontage to the pristine Orara River, fully fenced fertile river flats providing income producing fodder cropping, 70 acres of forest with creeks and trails for bushwalking or riding and a pocket of rainforest at the rear.

Located a scenic 20 minute drive from the CBD of Coffs Harbour and right on the school bus route.
