This very unusual property needs to be inspected to understand & appreciate everything on offer for the very realistic price of $525,000.
The owners have enjoyed their time here very much, but now is the time to move on to another challenge, the price for this property represents excellent value for money, it also offers someone the chance to acquire a truly unique part of the Dorrigo Plateau. The fact that there are two homes here mean it could either be for extended family or to do what the present owners have been doing, which is rent the two bedroom cottage out as a holiday let, or you may want to rent it out on a permanent basis.
Some of the features of the original 3 bedroom farmhouse are Stained glass & Lead-light windows & doors, lounge room with bay window & window seat, slow combustion fire and reverse cycle air, Axminster carpets throughout, sun-room, renovated bathroom with claw foot bath and separate shower. There are 2 covered verandahs where you can relax and just watch the world go by!

The second dwelling being a comfortable farm stay cottage features 2 bedrooms (sleeps 5 people), lounge with a cosy slow combustion wood fire also a reverse cycle air conditioner for the comfort of all the guests when they stay, a wrap around verandah that has views down to the river and to the rolling paddocks.
Positioned in the garden is a 1929 Adelaide Tram that has been converted into a 1950's style American Diner, with great attention to detail and authenticity, this also has reverse cycle air conditioning.
As a part of your own piece of paradise just unwind by the river where you can often see Platypus, or just have a swim or even do some canoeing or fishing.
This property is only 19kms to Dorrigo on a sealed road, where you (and your guests) will find World Heritage National Parks, Waterfalls and bush walks. The township is well serviced, even boasting it's own Hospital. There is also the Rainforest Centre with the Skywalk, Cafe, BBQ and picnic facilities. Dorrigo also has many clubs and activities from Rotary, Lions CWA, Hospital Auxiliary, Meals on Wheels, variety of Church groups, View Club, Garden Club and the list goes on, certainly no shortage of things to do and places to go. Coffs Harbour, Grafton and Armidale being a comfortable 1 hour and fifteen minute drive away, no busy traffic problems here.

To whom it may be of some interest. Ah! Murray Slender and Jane Wells. How can I ring the bells of their wondrous weaving of life changing events. Let me count the ways. Firstly, under the guise of a pair of mild mannered property purveyors, they are really wizards in disguise. With an inherent skill to peer deeply into the dark depths of an innocent vendor, extracting the deepest held desires to 'MAKE A KILLING', and bringing the calm rationalisation of reality to bear, dashing such desires and - here is the amazing part.- honestly imparting to said vendor, what is the true reality of achievable results. This Much and No More is the mantra of this mysterious pair, and, perhaps surprisingly, their mystical pronouncements bear more than a small modicum of truth. Secondly, were they brought up in a circus? Their ability to juggle numerous events at one time borders on more than spooky. In this instance, casting two castles into the dimension of lost souls, and, at the same time, fishing a third castle out, to lay it at our feet all sparkling and glittering and totally irresistible. BUT, there's more. Nothing but nothing is unachievable for this mighty duo. This mighty juggling could well have exploded in our face, but the Slender wand was waved over this conundrum of events, and a spell was weaved that created possibility out of impossibility. And LO! In the fullness of time all things came to pass. Oh, we of little faith have now been converted to the true meaning of:- "Trust me, I am a true purveyor of the great art of Agency, while all around me fall to darkness'. These wizards can be truly trusted. Thirdly, their care never ceases. Having settled all the drama associated with our castles, this mighty wizard pair did not cast us into the darkness- no, they cleverly contrived for us to inhabit a cave nearby to them, so they can still cast their caring charms over us. If I gaze from my castle turret, I can feel the warmth of their protective gaze still lingering over us. When we come to quit this grand abode, I am sure that the Wizard Slender will once again be called upon to wave his wand over us and ensure we have a safe future. Of course, with such care there is always a price to pay, and for us this means becoming involved in certain ackane ceremonies that the Wizard Slender is involved in at a festive time. But, we partake willingly, because to cross such a mighty wizardly pair would court serious bolts of lightening and other dark events to cross our new threshold. Hold your friends close, but hold mighty wizards closer, even when you do trust them. Here endeth the lesson. Bill & Carolyn Baggett

Perched at the pointy end of real estate agents in Dorrigo, Murray Slender is the only agent you should deal with. He is attentive, professional, ethical, amicable and very knowledgeable about amenities and services available on the Plateau. He has made the whole purchasing process much less stressful than it can be with his continued support and knowledge. When we first started searching for our forever home in Dorrigo, Murray was the only agent to sit down with us and discuss our criteria. Initially, we spent an hour and a half with Murray, chatting with a hot cup of coffee and a nice biscuit. We felt like we were visiting an old friend. This was a new experience for us because other agents in the area seemed uninterested in discussing our needs or even returning our phone calls. If you want to buy or sell your property in the Plateau Region, it would be a prudent move to call Murray. You can trust Murray, and his words and actions are beyond reproach. We’ll see you soon Murray for that shared port in front of the fire. Your new friends Lindy & John H

We have had many property dealings, yet rarely have we had the pleasure of working with an agent as genuine, honest, and thoroughly professional as Murray Slender. Purchasing our rural retreat was a retirement ambition and once we had found our Dorrigo dream, securing it, and all that was involved, would not have happened so easily without Murray’s constant navigation and communication. The purchase was not straight forward as it was a joint venture, both parties lived a few hours away and the vendors had significant other matters to deal with that prevented them being on site. Murray and his partner, Jane managed the complexities with patience, positivity, and total commitment to getting the best result for all involved. They both went above and beyond, organising trades and services, providing local contact and suggestions, as well as answering a myriad of questions, night and day! As a result, we now have new friends in Murray and Jane, we have begun our dream feeling welcomed and supported and we thank the team at Dorrigo 1 Property Sales for making this happen.
