Fifteen minutes from Braidwood at 269 Foxs Elbow Road is ‘Greenview’ – a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home set on 500 acres (205 hectares).
Greenview is fully fenced light bushland, with 100 cleared acres around the house with five paddocks, including the house yard, and five dams, suitable for grazing sheep, goats, alpacas or horses. There is a wide track around the edge of the land which provides direct access to the Shoalhaven River via water board land.
Greenview, according to Belle Property principal Kelly Allen, has potential for subdivision subject to council approval or building a second home or eco-friendly bush cabins for farm stays. Greenview is around an hour from Canberra and three hours from Sydney and provides the perfect environment for a tree-change.
“Greenview is a lovely property sitting on a parcel of well-serviced land, with plenty of water, and plenty of space,” Kelly said.
Greenview’s four-bedroom, two-bathroom homestead has a practical floorplan with open-plan living and a secluded master suite.
“The outdoor living area is so cool in the summer, it’s ideal for barbeques and family meals,” said Kelly.
The homestead has a very generous outdoor dining area on the verandah, above which sit the solar panels for the 3 kW off-grid power cells. The open plan kitchen diner is more than spacious with enough room for both a dining table and a living area, and the formal living room is shaded by a verandah and has panoramic views of the countryside.
There is a combustion stove in the living room for cosy winter nights near the fire, while an overhead fan circulates cool breezes in the warmer months. Behind the kitchen is an office or study, perfect for running the property and keeping up to date with the books. It could also be used as a walk-in pantry.
The master bedroom has a walk-in robe and a generous bathroom with a corner spa bath, and separate shower, and is to the side of the formal living area, while the other three bedrooms are separated by the kitchen/dining/family room from the master, giving a sense of privacy and seclusion to the master suite.
The master bedroom has plenty of floor space, and the three other bedrooms are generously proportioned. One has a built-in robe and all are serviced by the family bathroom.
“There’s so much potential, the home is perfectly set up for a family, and it would be easy to run a herd of sheep, or horse agistment, the paddocks are all fully fenced, and the homestead has everything needed to run a farm, and take care of a family,” said Kelly.
The property has a shearing shed, multiple smaller sheds and a single garage, and a septic tank and rainwater tanks. There is a school bus stop at the corner of Foxs Elbow Road and the Kings Highway, and there is good internet and mobile reception via satellite NBN.
