Sitting at 1000 metres on the Gwydir River, this breathtakingly beautiful property is named Irrabina, meaning 'a quiet place' in Ainawan, the local aboriginal dialect. And that description is spot-on!
Irrabina is a 200 acre organically certified farm located at the foot of Mt Yarrowyck, in the stunning New England region of NSW.
Peaceful and private 5km off the main road, you are still just 40 minutes from Armidale, 20 minutes from Uralla and 30 minutes from the airport. The coast is just a couple of hours away.
Everything about this property is delightful, from the mudbrick, timber and sandstone bessa block main house, to the 1km river frontage, with its crystal clear swimming holes and fishing.
The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home features a cathedral ceiling in the lounge, a wood heater and pretty leadlight feature, plus an office and a separate, large studio.
The property is naturally treed with yellow box, red gum and apple gum, with striking granite boulders and rocky outcrops.
Located in a wildlife corridor, expect to regularly see kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, quoll, platypus, wedgetail eagles and king parrots.
The property housed a commercial, international mohair business with angora goats until 2004, but is now a successful Galloway cattle stud, with a champion steer at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
At a glance:
• Stock yards, sheds, 4wd bike, trailers, tools, fire-fighting equipment and more
• Native natural pastures with over 40 species of grasses
• Abundant water with a bore, 4 dams and 125,000 litre house tank
• Satellite internet plus WiFi
Perhaps you will keep this as a commercial enterprise, or maybe you're seeking your dream home away from the crowds. Either way, this is an outstanding opportunity.
