More than a decade of commitment and passion have transformed this once bare paddock, into the launching pad for your permaculture dreams.
Designed on passive solar principles and constructed using locally sourced and recycled materials, the two strawbale chalets display all the characteristics of this gorgeous building method and boast an 8-star energy efficiency rating. Both the two-bedroom and studio-style structures are furnished and include linen, so immediately ready for letting.
The two bedroom one bath auxiliary accommodation could be further utilised as a holiday let, featuring its own decked alfresco, carport and garage/workshop.
All buildings are connected to scheme water. Bore-fed automatic reticulation is installed across the property with a greywater system providing supplemental irrigation. Rainwater tanks, a soak and two bores ensure a reliable water supply.
Three netted orchards – one dedicated to heritage apples – a grape arbour planted with a range of table and wine varieties, nut trees – pecan, macadamia, chestnut, almond – and several raised garden beds used for seasonal planting and perennial herbs, produce a year-round bounty.
Numerous outbuildings, including a lined and powered Colorbond studio, storerooms and workshop give you the flexibility to shape your vision of sustainability.
