Bellingen Deep River Frontage, 2 Houses, 8.94 Ha and Licensed Turf Farm

Overlooking the Bellinger River, and with soothing coastal breezes from both houses, is this gardened and manicured property that was once, and could be again, a turf farm with its license still active. The main house is 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 additional powder rooms and a fantastic work from home office. This substantial home would not only make a fantastic family home, it would also be ideal for a couple with the upstairs area perfect for the extended family or friends or live in help. The spacious kitchen will meet all your culinary desires and features a gas range with large oven, dishwasher, large bench tops and opens to the sun-filled breakfast room. The extensive split level lounge with a substantial timber fireplace is situated next to the dining area and there is also a living room situated next to the pool room. The house has air-conditioning throughout for the warmer months and the split level open plan living and dining room features a fireplace for winter. There is a plunge pool and spa that are heated from solar on the roof. There is also an adjoining toilet to save a trip through the house when needed. The house is rendered brick, with part timber facade and a slate roof and is in excellent condition throughout. Recently re carpeted in the two living areas and bedrooms and includes plenty of cupboard storage for even the biggest family. The study is large and has external access for the home office. This area would also be ideal as a studio, games room or a place where you can undertake your hobby. The master bedroom is substantial and north facing with a walk in robe for him and her as well as an ensuite. Bedroom 2 also has a walk in robe, which could easily be converted into an ensuite given the plumbing is already available. Bedroom 3 is only a single size while bedroom 4 has built ins and a small deck for pondering what's next. The laundry has external access if you wished to convert this separate space to self contained accommodation. To complete the main house, there is a second living area/games room/gym, which adjoins the solar heated indoor plunge pool and spa, alongside the substantial outdoor entertaining area with a built in BBQ & kitchenette, all with stunning views overlooking the magnificent Bellinger River. There is also a double garage and carport with a covered walkway, paved to the front door. The main house is serviced by a biocycle system; there is an outdoor tap with water from bore while indoor water is supplied from rainwater tanks at the shed - same as the cottage. The original verandah sided cottage at the other end of the driveway has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and would benefit from a renovation. It is weatherboard with a metal roof and a 10 kw solar array services both houses. The cottage could achieve a rental return of $400 per week. It would also suit your farm manager or your children when the grandchildren emerge. There is a 5 bay machinery shed with concrete floor, a 5,000 gallon tank and a fantastic bore with absolutely pristine water. The 35 mg licence out of Hyde's creek for the turf farm has an on title easement from across the road if required. You could lease the turf farm or work it yourselves for another source of income. The registered pontoon is ready for you to tie up your fishing boat or to lower your crab traps. This property caters for just about everyone and by the way it's flood free. An absolutely wonderful property that will suit you, your family and all your friends for a very long time. Please ring Peter or Brett to arrange an inspection at any time that suits.
