This special parcel of bush is where my inspiration for Into Your Skin came from. Living off grid here for the past 6 years has been wonderful. We have learnt so much and every day has been enjoyable and interesting. Walking the tracks, growing veggies, pumping the water, morning coffee with the sunrise, listening and watching the wildlife, its all been fantastic. Now it's time to move on and as one door shuts another one opens. Our unique off grid mud brick home which is which is nestled amongst 68 acres of native dry and wet sclerophyll forest, with 1 km of river frontage and a year-round creek is FOR SALE. Positioned at the back of the property on a hill 800m from the road sits this incredible opportunity to live completely off grid.
The property is just 12 minutes’ drive from the centre of Scottsdale and is comprised of a three-bedroom, one-bathroom dwelling surrounded by ¾ acre of a fully automated irrigated garden, encircled by a possum proof fence, and includes a green house, veggie gardens and a 9 x 6m powered shed and double carport. 68 acres of native bushland, wildlife and State Forest surround all this.
Rain water is used for the house and creek water is pumped up for the irrigation. This water is kept in 2 x 10,000 litre water tanks, 1 x 76,000 litre rain water tank and 2 x 3,000 overflow water tanks.
Along with gas cooking and evacuated tube solar hot water, there is a 5Kw 48-volt SMA Solar System with a 6.5 petrol Honda inverter generator back up which has more than enough power to make this home comfortable. Wood heating from the Rayburn 3 with a hot water jacket and the Windsor wood fire ensures warmth in the winter and the well treed block will provide substantial firewood for years to come.
This property offers a unique opportunity to live simply on 68 acres in a fantastic location, close to all that the North East offers.Contact Justin Wiggins for more details or to view this truly unique home. Offers over $349,000 will be considered.
