Surrounded by rich volcanic farmland on the fertile Fernleigh plateau, this homestead built over 100 years ago has the character and charm of a bygone era. Take in the lovely rural views from this very tidy property and soak up the rural atmosphere with little to do. The present owners have enjoyed it for many years and the lifestyle this property offers but reluctantly it's time for them to downsize.

The old homestead has been lovingly maintained & cared for by the present owners, which features original teak, beech, cedar & ghost gum timbers throughout the home. All the rooms are spacious being very typical of the era, the three bedrooms have built-in robes & the lovely north facing enclosed verandah is perfect for those winter days.
A slow combustion heater will keep the home warm throughout & the country kitchen has been equipped with all modern appliances. The bathroom features a claw foot bath tub, toilet & separate shower & there is also an outside laundry/washroom with a toilet & shower.
Other buildings include a mud brick studio, great for the visitors & and there is an old two car shed & carport.
Perfect set up for a hobby farm with an old established garden & orchard including mango, avocado, lychees, figs, passion fruit, blueberry, persimmon, mulberry, guava, olives, lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruit. Your chickens would be well cared for in the "chook house" & ponies also are catered for with horse stables & a round yard.
This is a perfect "tree change property" for enjoying country life in Byron Shire's hinterland, yet very close to the coast and all major towns. A must to inspect.
