Spectacular views, privacy, river access and abundant wildlife, this breathtaking property situated in the magical Numinbah Valley is perfect for those seeking a rural property with a retreat lifestyle.
In the Shepherd family for over 60 years, the final piece of the family farm is now being offered for sale. Sadly, after purchasing elsewhere, it is time to say goodbye.
Originally a dairy farm, this magnificent parcel of 50 acres has been transformed to become a unique equine property, with plentiful water and arguably one of the best views in SE QLD. Prospective purchasers have the option to continue the current operation or simply enjoy a rural lifestyle that is just 25 minutes from the Gold Coast.
The grand old Queenslander, (original home on nearby ‘The Grand’ Golf Course) comprises 4 bedrooms, high ceilings, verandahs and 270deg of magnificent views of the Valley, Beechmont and Egg Rock. To the rear of the home is a separate studio.
Water is in abundance with two dams and a fully equipped bore that pumps clear water to a holding tank on the hill, which gravity feeds stock water to the paddocks and pumps direct to the house. An easement allows access to 50m of Nerang River frontage beside the local Primary School, and a swimming hole known locally as “The School Pool”, as in decades past it was where the students had their swimming lessons. This easement covers almost an acre of land between the river and Nerang-Murwillumbah Rd, allowing access to the river for pumping rights, agricultural and recreational use. It is covered by a “Profit a Prende” which outlines that the entire easement may be used for agriculture such as growing a small scale crop, for grazing animals, as well as for recreation activities like swimming, canoeing and fishing.
Scenic Numinbah Valley, home of the Natural Bridge, still retains the peaceful untouched wonder that was evident when the Valley was first discovered over a century ago. Timber cutting was the original industry which converted to dairying after the supply of millable timber ran out. Shopping, banks, medical services and high schools are just 25 minutes away.
