Jan Ladmore of All Real Estate NSW is proud to offer a very special property situated in Wamboin.
From the time you drive up the tree lined driveway towards the homestead, you can’t help but notice how beautiful the surrounding gardens are. The owners have fastidiously planted some wonderful gardens around their home, and carefully placed seating and benches to enjoy the views, to sit and watch the horses, read a book with a coffee or find a quiet spot to have a drink and relax when you are home from work.
This property has on older style, solid, double brick home built near the side boundary fence overlooking the property. The home consists of five bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a powder room, three living areas and a large entertaining area set amongst magical gardens. The kitchen has plenty of bench and cupboard space plus a walk-in pantry that is neat as a pin. The family room flows through to the living/games room which leads out to a well-designed entertaining area complete with a pizza oven and pergola. The bathrooms have been fully renovated in neutral coloured tiles and look amazing, with double sinks in both and lots of room. For convenience, there is a third toilet/powder room near the 4th & 5th Bedrooms. Along with the insulation benefits of a double brick home, there is also two slow combustion wood fires, one in the kitchen /family room and the other in the lounge room to warm the whole home. Three of the bedrooms have ducted heating to them from the wood fire. The verandah compliments the gardens with strategically placed pot plants and seating to take in the views.
Wow, the gardens! Not often do you find such lovely gardens on a rural property, I was very impressed with the layout and thoughtful design of these well-established gardens around this home, they are very pretty, with plenty of colour amongst green lawn and space to enjoy, there are places to sit and relax, and places for children and pets to run about. Really nice.
There are the Gardens and then there is the “Vegie Garden”:
What can I say? One of the best displays of a home veggie patch that I have seen, it is well thought out, fully enclosed & protected from pests, close to the house for convenience, and raised beds for ease of selection and maintenance. I was really impressed with this thoughtful layout and any person who loves cooking (or enjoys eating food ðÿ˜š) would definitely appreciate this garden.
As you drive into the property, there are five well placed stables with holding yards on the fence line facing a level paddock with good soft pasture. The adjoining stables are of a good size, they are well-built and designed so that the horses can view & enjoy some social contact with the other horses held in the stables. There is water to the stables
A decent round yard is near the stables and works well in conjunction with the other horse facilities.
There is a full-sized grass dressage arena near the dam, it has not been utilized for some time, but the basics are there to expand on.
Shedding & Facilities
A large garage that would take two+ cars and still have room for a good-sized workshop is beside the house. Front & side of the garage is a very versatile four space carport. There is various shedding & storage including a work-shed, tack room, potting/green shed, dog enclosure with a secure dog run within the garden with plenty of shade, and a chook pen. There is also cattle yards with a cattle crush and race.
The property size is 12.53Ha or 31 ac and is divided into six good paddocks for horses and stock. The plentiful grasses are soft, and the ground has good topsoil. The property itself is mainly level with some undulation at the back of the block on the watercourse/creek. There is small amount of native bushland with some huge eucalypts, towards the back of the block near the cattle yards.
Water for the home is from a 20,000-gallon concrete tank with a 5000-gallon tank off the stables.
A large dam with a good catchment, is central to the property can be viewed from the homestead and located near the stock yards and old arena, not only practical for water needs, but makes for a very pretty outlook from the house gardens.
Running through the property is a natural watercourse that feeds Reedy Creek, it runs along the rear boundary behind the bushland at the back of the block. With both permanent and a spring fed holes through the watercourse, there is always plenty of water for stock, interesting places to walk with the pets, and is an exciting adventure for the family to have some fun and explore.
Along with plenty of tap outlets, there is also a pop-up water system through the gardens at the homestead for irrigating the gardens.
