This property is perfectly located midway between the University city of Armidale (approx 45 minutes) and the picturesque mountain township of Dorrigo (approx 45 minutes), the vibrant town of Bellingen is only another 30 minutes further on, the pristine coastline of Coffs Harbour with its glorious beaches is approximately 90 minutes from the property.
Set on a fully fenced 100 acres is a quaint timber & corrugated iron cottage featuring 2 bedrooms, spacious lounge & dining with large open fire place (there is nothing like the ambience of an open fire) timber floors throughout. The cottage has been re-piered on metal piers, and the electrical has recently been fully rewired.
Situated away from the cottage is a stone & mud building with verandah (Entertainment building) this has a lot of character and could be used for a variety of things including entertainment, storage or studio (this also has an open fire place).
This property is a natures lover's paradise with its unique and amazing virgin/organic bush with semi rain forest pockets, tall grand Eucalyptus Gums and other local trees, good variety of birds in the area including various parrot species - Kookaburras and Finches, plenty of other wildlife including Kangaroos & Wallabies which graze on the lush grasses.
This property is predominately bush with some grazing areas for your four legged friends, it also has the ability of a dual occupancy, so if you would like to build a new home and leave the original cottage you can (STCA).

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
