"Santee" - Stunning 21 acres of rural heaven, stunning home plus studio!

All the features of an original character home but only 3 years old and devastatingly charming. "Santee" is an absolute delight, inside and out, the type of property that is the very essence of why we love rural living so much!

Home and studio set on approximately 21 acres and surrounded by vibrant gardens full of colour, bird and wildlife. This architect designed home is nestled in an idyllic picture-postcard setting that could inspire even the most inartistic among us to pick up a paint brush and try and capture the magic on canvas.

The home is complete with three double bedrooms, an opulent bathroom with high quality fixtures and views from the freestanding bathtub, open plan lounge and dining with high ceilings and feature bio-flame heater, black butt timber floors, a modern take on a 'classic country' style kitchen featuring high-end Italian appliances and stone bench tops, a generous butler's pantry, soundproof media room with stunning bay window, separate laundry with second toilet and ample built in storage, all on a stunning rural vista fenced into 6 paddocks of rolling pasture with additional pockets of natural wildlife haven.

The aspect of this home is most appreciated from the spotted gum decks of the verandas surrounding 3 sides, making for sun-soaked morning breakfasts as you watch the mist rise over the valley below, and stunning hues of mauve and pinks as the sun sets behind the Tallowwoods on the hill.

This is a home that could suit those looking for a private rural retreat, or where guests are welcome to stay a while. "Santee Cottage" fully self-contained studio is separate from the main residence and surrounded by pretty plantings of flowers, raised veggie garden & water feature. To be sold fully furnished and featuring 2 bedrooms, large open living and combined kitchen and dining rooms. Your guests will wake up to the sounds of nature and take in the glorious valley views, all in self-contained privacy. A family looking for that country lifestyle with room for the in-laws could easily be accommodated. Located 10 minutes' drive to the friendly village of Clunes, 35 minutes to Byron Bay and 1 hr to Gold coast airport, this location is secluded but in no way isolated and is a perfect home base for visits to all that the Byron hinterland and coast has to offer. Corndale public school is a short drive up the road and this property is on the bus run to Lismore.

This property has the added benefit of plenty of water with more tanks than you could ever need, perfect for those who want to live sustainably and add to the productivity of this rich soiled property which currently has numerous natives, mangoes, and citrus. Enjoy farm fresh eggs with a very accommodating chicken coup. As you pull into the farmgate you will be in awe of the presentation of this property, weeping callistemon line the driveway as it winds past the 6 separate paddocks all with excellent fencing and perfect for horses or livestock. Not one but two farm sheds provide room for all the cars and farm machinery and you will still have room for all the toys and hobbies.
