With a secure chook pen, dam, and loads of room for further planting, it's now your turn to put your stamp on this property.

Solar power? Can do. Work from home? Perfect. Want to start a farm stay? The current owners ran a successful business prior to COVID and are open to shar-ing contacts and ideas if that's what you've always dreamed of.

Comfort is king here, though this is still a lovely, well-presented home that you'll be proud to show off.
