This 30 acre (approx.) property is situated at the end of a quiet picturesque lush valley – with rainfall of approx. 1200mm per year. Situated near the head waters and the first on property on the South Esk River, the rivers unpolluted water meanders as the front boundry featuring rockpools, streams and waterfalls representing an untouched paradise. This beautiful valley is a well kept secret.
Water is virtually endless flowing from the South Esk RIver as well as having access to a permanent spring, gravity feeding to the house. The land is a mixture of pasture and trees providing the ultimate privacy. At times all you can hear is the wind or the crack of a tree as it takes its last resting place. The house and cabin are both on an elevated rise – looking down upon the river flats.
This property presents a private location with only one (hidden) boundry neighbour, but within easy driving distance to the airport, major service centres and many tourist attractions including the ski fields, bike trails, fossicking, waterfalls, beaches or you could go for a horse or bike ride up to Tombstone forest.
The property is home to various wild life including wombats, quolls (spotted tail & eastern), wedgetail and sea eagles, devils and possums and plentiful bird life. The river has platypus and its resident Brown and Rainbow trout are well prized by fly fishermen.
With the size of the property there is space for wikicamp sites, crops such as pepper berries, grapes or a large market garden. The night skies and stars are crisp and clear without light pollution and this property has endless potential for tourism options and an income – it just needs you.
