Boasting million-dollar views, three beautiful country houses, private swimming holes and some of the best farming land to boot. Driving through the lush rolling green hills of the Upper Hunter, Dungog, your new local town only ten minutes away will inspire you with country feels from friendly shops, cafes and people to pubs, clubs and restaurants.
Escape the hustle n bustle of city life and find your way to a laid-back country lifestyle with established veggie gardens, amazing wildlife and happy hours that could last an eternity.
Koorawatha, as the property was originally known, is up there with some of the best dirt we have set foot on with river frontage to match. These two features alone will leave you saying "Wow, what an opportunity, this could be ours." Yes, on the 20th December history will be made as 54 Dowlings Road will change hands and all this could be yours. All this includes 118 acres (2 titles) including 40 acres of alluvial river flats with renowned doing ability, producing some bumper pasture crops. Bandon Grove Dairy's fodder production has more recently serviced the district's newest dairy operation for the last 7 years.
While more recently the state has experienced record-breaking droughts, this property is well catered for with over 1.4 km of Chichester River frontage, 75 Meg irrigation licence, underground irrigation mains, stock dams and troughs and town water. The river is also great for recreation, swimming, kayaking, bird watching, great bass fishing and just cooling off in those hot Aussie summers.
Entering the property, the inviting tree-lined driveway takes you past the dairy managers cottage, (Homestead 1) and nearby dairy, cattle yards and farm sheds.
As we climb further up the drive you will arrive at Homestead 2, built in 1903 and lovingly restored. This home is located in an established garden setting with extensive shedding, solar panels, shaded verandahs and a patio with a mulberry tree we wish could tell stories.
Continuing up the bitumen farm road you arrive at Homestead 3 which, following the theme of Homestead 2 with a beautiful renovation, is ready for the growing family with an abundance of living space, spacious Aussie Barn shed, shaded verandahs, a great sized fenced yard and veggie patch, solar panels and picturesque views over the entire farm.
Bring the whole family or rent out two of the three houses for an easy income on the side
Locally you have Chichester Dam picnic areas with some great history, The State Forest, Jerusalem Creek Waterfalls and campgrounds, walking trails and four wheel driving all just ten minutes away.
Maitland, Raymond Terrace, Gloucester and Singleton are all less than an hour away. The Newcastle Airport is 90 minutes and Sydney just two and half hours.
To put it simply, this holding has it all location, privacy, productivity, history, river frontage, fertile flats, 3 free standing homesteads, established neighbours and views everywhere you look. The list of features is never ending. If you are in the market for one of Dungog's best holdings do yourself a favour and pick up the phone to arrange an inspection. This could be your dream come true.
