About our home

Our home is a clean, spacious well appointed home set on a lifestyle block with a river bounding three sides (plenty of swimming holes).
Our orchard holds in excess of 50 fruit producing trees, and our vege garden usually has a stock of fresh vegetables.
Two bedrooms have en-suites and queen sized beds, and they each open out onto a private verandah. One bedroom has a double bed and the other has two single beds; these bedrooms have a bathroom and separate toilet situated between them.
The large kitchen has a gas hob and an electric cooktop, two ovens and a dishwasher. It is well stocked with plenty of appliances and other kitchen needs. A barbeque is available on the covered verandah.
The kitchen is open to a large dining area, the table seats 8 comfortably and there is a table and 6 chairs on the front verandah as well.
The property is large with plenty of room. The river provides numerous swimming holes.
