"RIBBON GUM" a tranquil picturesque lifestyle property with heaps of walking trails, sun-kissed creek which flows most of the year and a magical waterfall which gives you cascading torrents of water but may flow slowly or not at all in the dryer months!
The vistas are magnificent, no matter where you choose to wander, the aura is resplendent … from looking over the Wollondilly Valley from "Champagne Rock" (so named by the owners because it is a special place to watch the sunset with a glass of bubbly) positioned high above the valley floor with views across the sloping ridges and the glow of the setting sun.
The intermittent creek (flows most of the year, can be a torrent or slow, possibly dry in the driest times) approx. 200m from the residence is the flow-on from two creeks from higher ground of two neighbouring properties coming together. This creek flows on a bed of granite, rich in yellows and reds, into the Wollondilly River.
The creek offers lots of mini waterfalls as it flows to the (real) waterfall. It has numerous small granite rock pools giving you beautiful surrounds and serenity to enjoy a picnic … importantly, beer and bubbly stay cool in the rock pools too, no need for an esky!
Another stunning feature of this property is the amazing granite found interspersed throughout; in all sizes and shapes creating natural sculptures of great beauty.
This low-maintenance LIFESTYLE property is sublime, restful and magnificent.
Land area- 100 acres. Arable approx. 30%, with approx. 70% forested. Enclosed veggie garden & chicken coop.
The Residence & Studio
Inspired and built by the owners, the house is designed to capture "forever" views from every room!
With large picture windows facing north, east and west, this house is set within "an amphitheatre" of the surrounding escarpment giving you protection from the southerlies.
The house is "U" shaped with two wings of two bedrooms and one bathroom in each wing which join together at the spacious open-plan living, dining, kitchen & fireplace nook … with views to as far as the eyes can see.
Each view offers a different and distinctive vista: the Wollondilly Valley (west); to open-country and sparsely green-wooded vistas beneath stately sandstone cliffs (north) and open-gentle sloping terrain with meandering driveway (east).
This north-facing house is perfectly positioned for all seasons: winter-takes advantage of the lower position of the northerly sun which reaches the back wall of the entire living area, filling the whole room with natural warmth; summer- the sun is set high well above the house providing respite from summer heat.
The house is constructed in double-brick, concrete slab and corrugated roof, and with exterior walls finished off in bagged render for an authentic and natural look. Two satellite dishes provide NBN and TV reception. Mains Power. Tank water 115,000 litres
The Studio sits behind the house; is spacious and also enjoys amazing vistas offering a large open space downstairs with another large open space upstairs as well as shower-room and laundry downstairs.
The Studio could be used as:
+ a *‘work from home’ office,
+ a teenager’s bedroom & retreat;
+ Airbnb … or, separate accommodation for the family
