Walk Lightly, Live Kindly. Off-grid Rainforest Delight!

Located high on the ridge between Nimbin & The Channon is this charming 18 acre rainforest hideaway with spectacular views.

The property has approximately 3-4 arable acres around the lovely timber home, and is full of mature trees, shrubs and various citrus, stone and exotic fruit trees.

Having recently been given a council grant to improve the local Koala Habitat (lantana control), the rainforest is regenerating from the ground up. Within a year or so the remainder of the property will be an explorer's dream, with water courses and plant life that has remained untouched for decades, now slowly becoming accessible by foot. A large veggie patch is ready to go, currently planted with melons and sunflowers.

The home itself is completely off-grid, running on solar power, tank water, gas hot water and stove, with septic for full bathroom facilities. An AGA woodfire oven is wonderful for cooking and warming the house in winter. In summer the doors and windows are all left open and provide lovely cooling afternoon breezes. It offers a large main bedroom with doors out to the verandah and a second good sized bedroom and loft area, suitable as a study or kids bedroom. The kitchen/dining and living areas are combined and open out onto the verandahs via double doors, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor feel.

A separate cabin sits approximately 70m or so from the house. It has been used as guest accommodation & an art studio by the current owners, with plans to create an off-grid eco retreat. Full architectural drawings and plumbing report are available to the new purchasers should this project be of interest. The property is incredibly peaceful and private and visitors often brag of their best nights sleep in years.

A small animal enclosure has been built around the original carport and can stay in place or be removed upon sale of the property.

Should you wish to enjoy life in all its simplicity and natural beauty this property is worth a look. Schools are close by and a local bus collects kids all the way to the end of Rose Road, meeting up with the coach into Nimbin. Shops are within 15 mins at Nimbin or The Channon, Lismore and all its conveniences only 35-45 min away. Gold Coast and Ballina airports are within 90 mins.
