73 Martin Road Nymboida 2460 NSW
SELF SUFFICIENCY, TRANQUILITY AND ONE GORGEOUS HOUSE
A FRESHLY-carved driveway now leads to this idyllic Nymboida gem set high on the side of Mount Martin and hidden from the world on approximately 250 acres of valley.
Solar passive in design, this spacious and character-laden timber home must be inspected to be truly appreciated. Aspected to the north west, solar passive features include: a wrap-around verandah, dual hot water system (solar and wetback), insulation under roof and ceiling, open fire place and expandable stand alone 2kw PV solar system.
Completed 14 years ago, the main dwelling took many years to design as the owners originally lived in the timber shed which they built some 34 years ago and still stands immediately next to the house.
"The quietness is amazing, apart from the birdlife, with no road noise or close neighbours," say the owners. "Our children learnt to be efficient with electricity, water and money, which has seen them become self-reliant adults."
"Living in the community of Nymboida, which is still an active one, has given us life-long friends and experiences. The local school has the advantages of being a small school, creating a family-like learning environment."
A school bus runs from the end of Martin Road into Nymboida and Grafton and the property boasts mail and garbage services. The road is regularly graded and all weather access is available with bridges along Glenns Creek Road (subject to flooding in major events).
A fifteen minute drive from Nymboida and 45 minutes from Grafton, this council-approved residence is set among park-like surroundings of established trees and gardens in the Orara Valley.
There is a large open-plan timber kitchen alongside the dining and living area, which has a brick fire place.
The laundry, bathroom and separate toilet are all downstairs, with solar hot water or wood stove as a back-up.
A timber staircase leads up to the second living area, four enormous bedrooms and a loo with a view.
Upstairs the verandah extends on three sides, with two of the bedrooms having their own decks.
A timber shed can be found near the home, and could be used as a workshop or storage area, and there is also an established vege garden. There is a three bay carport near the front of the home, and tank water is plentiful with 43000 litres of rainwater storage.
There is another workshop shed up the hill from the home, and a three bay machinery shed can be found further up.
A large, clean dam is located near the house and driveway and there is a second dam below the home site, which is set in frost-free location with a north-easterly aspect.
Satellite internet is connected, and timbers such as Spotted Gum, Tallowood, Ironbark Turpentine and Brush Box can be found on the property, which hasn't been logged for the past 37 years. There is also plenty of productive fruit and nut trees near the house.
