My stylish timber and iron home was built in 2001. It features an open plan living space and two cosy bedrooms. All rooms overlook the wonderful Aussie bush. Even the bathroom has a (private) panoramic view from the deep, comfy bath. Best of all though is the huge deck with its own lounge chairs where you can spend hours just watching the birds and "chilling out".
The house is built on a hill with level entry at the front but overlooking marvellous mature trees at the rear. It is situated on over 2 hectares of land.
There are no close neighbours yet you are only 2 minutes by car or 10 minute walk to Bellingen township and river.
Bellingen is a friendly cosmopolitan town featuring many cafes, restaurants and healthy food shops. Bellingen is renowned for its music and alternative lifestyle atmosphere with massage and many various other therapies readily available. We hold a huge monthly market with over 250 stalls that brings goods and visitors from near and far. In August we have a big Jazz Festival and in October the renowned Global (World Music) Carnival is held.
The coast with great surfing beaches is only 15 minutes drive away and the large tourist town of Coffs Harbour is 40 minutes drive. You can fly into Coffs Harbour from Sydney or Brisbane easily. In Coffs there are many activities such as Whale Watching Tours, Ocean Fishing tours, the Pet Porpoise Pool, white water rafting, scuba diving around the reefs in the Solitary Islands National Park.
30 mins west of Bellingen is the Dorrigo National Park featuring magnificent rainforests, rivers and walks, and the New England National Park is just a bit further up the mountain boasting ancient arctic beech forests and spectacular rainforest walks. The north coast of NSW has magnificent weather all year round and from July to September is our winter/spring, perfect for walks, surfing and drinking coffee.
I am a single tradesman (I repair and upholster furniture) in my 40's. I spent most of 2001 helping to build my home - a very rewarding experience! I also work helping to rehabilitate the bush where it has been degraded. I may be travelling with one other.
