“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately…” Henry David Thoreau

  • 48.55 ha (approx) Land Area

If your daily grind no longer holds the attraction that it once had, and all you are doing is working to pay bills. if you never see your kids and nobody is happy…then get a life!

This approx. 45.51 Ha (120 ac) block of gently undulating bushland which is only about 10 kilometres from the centre of town may well hold the key to a new life.

It must be noted that the current owners have spent the last 17 years cherishing and caring for this land with an unwavering commitment to treating it respectfully, sustainably and organically. There is no doubt that this block could provide a level of blissful peace and contentment for anyone who chooses to continue nurturing it in this fashion.

This would be a wonderful place to raise children and chickens, ducks and goats. A place where children can run like the wind and explore like Oxley. A place where children can marvel of the birth of a foal or watch ducklings hatch. Who knows, perhaps by the age of six or seven your kids might become enterprising little entrepreneurs supplying local restaurants with organic eggs and yabbies. Or maybe they will just grow up being happy, healthy kids from the bush that will have access to the diverse range of opportunities that the City of Armidale (well known as a centre for education) can provide.

The block has a dwelling entitlement and already hosts a shed/cabin which has a pleasant outlook over an attractive dam that has previously been stocked with fish. There are a number of very attractive sites to choose from to build a home on.

The property holds good reserves of gravel suitable for engineering construction and a significant quantity of fallen timber suitable for firewood or landscape wood chipping. It has a number of very good large dams. Some of the fencing is currently being replaced, while the remainder is in fair to good order. There is some excellent timber on the property including some wonderful examples of protected Yellow Box (perhaps the little entrepreneurs could get a few beehives going??)

This place lends itself to the pursuit of peace, privacy and happiness and provides a chance to leave the worries of the world behind yet is still offers the convenience of being close to a city with all of its services and employment opportunities.

This property is suitable for:

• Those seeking a quiet refuge to come home to after work.

• Those seeking a sustainable, slower, healthier lifestyle.

• Those seeking to raise children in an atmosphere of environmental awareness.

• Those seeking a place of inspiration to ignite the creativity, innovation and passion that forges new ideas.

• Those seeking to create, build or grow something with their bare hands and revel in the deep satisfaction that comes from accomplishing such things.
