About this listing
Warm and cosy through the cooler months and cool in the summer, this property provides year round comfort. Add to this the rustic charm of exposed beams, sarking and a fabulous country kitchen and you have the makings of the most perfect home.

Straw bale buildings are becoming a real go to for efficiency, self-sufficiency and a proven method of modern building. Super insulated and shown to be less combustible than other modern timber framed homes due to the compacted straw bales, cavity system, plaster and paint completing the seal.

This family home has been designed for comfort and practicality, maximising the use of space and features to make this a true home to be loved by all. The well appointed kitchen and adjoining dining benefit from underfloor heating and the scullery plus pantry are the perfect addition.

Relax in front of the feature wood fire in the spacious living room and look out to Mt Oxford or step out into the sheltered courtyard to impress family and friends by cooking up a storm with the covered pizza oven and barbecue.

Set on two titles and available as one lot, you have beautifully contoured land here, just at the start of the foothills, with good boundary shelter, two creeks and ponds to boot. There is a farm shed near the home providing good workshop space and storage, plus cattle yards down by the gate, easy for truck access.

This truly unique property is available for the very first time, it's a cracker.
