Located on the banks of the beautiful Deua River with a boundary along Burra Creek, “Deua River Farm” is considered one of the region’s premier properties.
Featuring five bedrooms, three bathrooms, 82 acres (33 hectares) of space and reverse-cycle air conditioning, this spectacular farm home is sure to wow you.
Offered by the owners for the first time in 31 years, the land was selected by the vendors in 1990 for three reasons: quality of water, northerly aspect and closeness to Moruya township and Moruya Airport.
Peter Asbury, principal of Fraser-Gray Real Estate, said the home was one of the best properties he had listed.
“The home is beautiful and the current owners have been fastidious with their upkeep, not only of the house but its gardens as well,” he said.
“They have always pursued sustainable methods of farming and use biological spray, organic fertiliser and continual rotation of stock. No soluble fertilisers are used.”
The homestead sits in a commanding position with stunning views. Large covered outdoor entertainment areas are provided by the wraparound verandahs overlooking rolling paddocks and several sheds and workshops.
On entry, the foyer beckons you into this beautiful home with the formal lounge room with French doors opening onto the verandah. Extensive use of timber gives a natural, warm feel to this distinctive country property.
The open-plan kitchen, dining area and family room form the hub of the home, with a cosy fireplace for those cooler evenings. The kitchen features a gas and electric stove alongside a wealth of storage space and modern appliances.
There are two bedrooms on the ground level, the main with a walk-in robe and ensuite. The other is serviced by the main bathroom with a separate toilet.
Peter said the property had been popular so far.
“We have only had the listing up for a short time and we’ve already had lots of interest,” he said.
“We’ve heard from people all across Australia and we have even had interest from people overseas.”
Venture up the timber staircase and there are three other spacious bedrooms, all with built-ins and a powder room, which all open onto a large family/games room and study.
Moving outside, there are eight paddocks, with five hectares under irrigation, as well as cattle-handling facilities.
A 6.2kW back-to-grid solar system sits on one of the many sheds and workshops.
Commercially, Deua River Farm is well recognised for its outstanding vegetable production and has supplied varied produce to both Canberra and Moruya farmers’ markets.
