WOULD you like to live in a private retreat or in the middle of a botanical garden?
Situated on the boundary of the charming riverside village of Copmanhurst, this completely private 4.6 acres (approx) is adorned with well established native gardens and a tidy 3 bedroom brick home.
Close enough to the village to enjoy the amenities (including town water) but a world away in your own piece of paradise - really, this is living.
Circumstances have forced this sale in a relatively short time frame but the previous owners enjoyed and loved the place for 30 years.
Downstairs are two bedrooms and an office area, a bathroom and separate toilet, and a separate dining room, kitchen (incorporating a pantry and a small laundry) and a comfortable living room opening onto your garden view veranda. There is enough timber on the land to provide winter fuel for the pot belly. Four reverse cycle air conditioners add to the comfort.
Upstairs a large cathedral roofed "loft room" has windows in every direction to make the most of the vantage point. This room has variously been used as a bed and sitting room, a guest room and just a room for quiet reflection. It is simply lovely.
Outdoors the pergola extends from the home where breakfast is taken daily and friends are entertained regularly.
Next to the pergola is a garage, large enough for your car and plenty of room for a good sized work area and loads of shelving. A separate toilet is located here and another enclosed room, with plumbing, that could easily become another bathroom. Alongside the garage is 2 vehicle carport and at the rear, a small garden shed and water tank.
Every morning the wallabies and kangaroos come in from the adjacent bush land and, safe on the private block, koalas, echidnas and possums also visit. And if you love birdlife, over the years, as the gardens have developed, a total exceeding 180 species have been recorded in and over the property.
Though the home is compact, the outdoor space will never leave you feeling crowded.
Water is supplied through the village system, waste is managed via an approved septic system and power is from the grid.
This property incorporates 3 separate lots (at about 1.5 acres each) and a simple boundary adjustment could see the parts of it officially subdivided and sold off*.
Copmanhurst is a relaxing 25 minutes drive from Grafton, or South Grafton depending which route you take (this allows you to avoid the Grafton bridge traffic with a little forward thought).
The village itself has a infants/primary school, a general store and post office, a police station and a pub with a number of social activities including fishing, golf, pool and darts. Or there is tennis,pony club,craft days.But if you just want to laze in or on the river then drive for 3 minutes and you are there!
* Subdivision subject to council approval.
WHAT IS FASTRAK?
Fastrak is essentially no price marketing in which the buyer puts forward an offer for the seller's consideration. The agent may provide a price guide for the property but really it is the market and the seller that decides the final sale price. Call Terry for a price guide and further details.
