If you long for peace and tranquility, if you’ve been looking for the idyllic bush block with an easy contour, tall trees, dappled sunlight groves of pasture, a place to grow your own veg, raise a few animals and give the kids a taste of rural country life, fire up the wagon and come take a look at this amazing property. Situated on a heavily timbered block with a creek and fire truck trails throughout it is surrounded on its boundaries by rich fertile dairy and cattle farms in the Upper Rolland’s Plains precinct.
Just 30 minutes or so from Port Macquarie airport or the rail head at Wauchope is “Ray’s Place”. Ray is a legend in these parts and Ray does not want to leave, but leave he must. Whats the price you ask? That’s a good question and we honestly are unsure. That’s why we are going to Auction. Putting the price aside for now this place is worth the journey just to soak up the history and eclectic memorabilia.
At the heart of the Homestead is the original Wauchope Railway Station. It was trucked in back in 1992 along with the Ticket Office and an Inspectors Hut. All original public buildings built to last, from heart native timbers. They were thoughtfully placed on a gentle slope facing the northern sun to form the nucleus of what is now the homestead cluster that can sleep 14 without being stressed (5 double bedrooms and 4 single. Over the years much has been added including of course the essential infrastructure like sheds water tanks dams fencing and other extras that Ray considered essential, including an amazing rustic country bar and party deck complete with fire pit, spa pool and games room. The outlook is over a tranquil dam (more like a pool) and a mini 8 hole one club country golf course.
To keep things in perspective this is not “country club” decor you don’t have to dress for diner! It is unashamedly rustic. Ray is a builder by trade and says he doesn’t actually remember the sixties (so he was obviously there). The atmosphere is reminiscent of (but not to a fault), the hippie culture of the 60’ and early 70’s. It is very authentic and brimming with memories. Yes there is plenty to criticize and it is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but there is so much to appreciate. This is not a blank canvas and the buyer will see projects to complete and things to tidy but in the first instance it offers big accommodation it is warm and convivial, the land is sensational and options abound. At the right price there is a product to be achieved.
