There is a lot of potential in this "Tribe Size" one of a kind tranquil property set on a 7,573 sqm block with plenty of old world charm and quirky nooks and crannies. With 63 years of history running through half of its weatherboard veins, the original cottage was built in 1920's and a newer extension was added in 2005 providing two separate wings that could be geared toward a multi-generational family. Utilised until recently as a riding school, the property comes with planning approval for 6 horses and 4 ponies (subject to certain terms and conditions).

Brimming with vibrant birdlife, the bush views at the rear of the property are stunning and will provide many adventures and walk trails to explore. There is also an (approx.) 50sqm separate self-contained brick studio with a mezzanine area, and a small dated kitchenette and bathroom - perfect for a teenager wanting some independence or elderly parents wanting to be close by.
