This property has it all!!
A way to earn money by not even leaving home
Converted Tram into an American Diner
Four bay Colorbond shed
15 Acres of land
And lots, lots more!!
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.

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.

"We purchased our Deer Vale property from Murray in August 2019 and the experience of dealing with him was like no other we have experienced before. In fact, until you meet Murray and do business with him, you won’t understand exactly how bad all of the others real estate agents have been. We are in our 50s and have bought quite a few houses over our lifetime in the Sydney, Canberra and Blue Mountains areas. If you are like us, you will have just come to expect mediocre service and a good deal of “real estate speak”. Murray takes the time to really understand you and your priorities. He is honest, diligent, well-informed and genuinely motivated to do the best for both vendor and buyer. The later is not an easy undertaking, but Murray is such a decent person that this seems to come naturally to him. We have already recommended Murray to other potential buyers and we have complete confidence in doing so. It doesn’t matter what criteria you care to apply to the service provided by Murray - it will be five stars every time!” Kind regards, Toni and Conrad
