7 High Street, Nimbin
Words cannot express the unique and amazing potential of this property. As you enter the 27 acres just off the main street of Nimbin, you are smitten with what is clearly a peaceful and private block with views of Blue Knob Mountain over the tree-line, & park-like lawns dotted with mature trees. One's curiosity is then raise by the three modern shiny stainless steel railway carriages transformed into dwellings - carefully positioned along with a double garage/workshop on the gentle knoll of this beautiful land. But it is what lies beyond that is truly awe-inspiring and will spark the imagination of either the savvy real estate purchaser or the clever entrepreneur.
Almost the entire perimeter of the land is home to a genuine and mature Rainforest Botanic Gardens and Arboritum. The life's work of a renowned Horticulturalist, this outstanding pristine piece of heaven is traversed by 1.2kms of wide walkways, steps, & bridges over the watercourse. Hundreds of the trees are labelled and dated as you would see in public gardens, and the species range from a canopy of specimen rainforest trees to understorey palms and ferns. Many of the species are rare and endangered, and the forest has been nurtured to a self-maintaining stage for the most part. The author of this article spent two hours wandering in awe of its majesty, and it became apparent that tourists (both local and International) would jump at the chance to stay on this property and spend much time soaking up the delights of this Arboritum's flora, colourful birdlife, and abundant fauna. Nimbin is already on the top 10 list of destinations for Australian Tourism, and such a unique offering with such close proximity to the village would add to its diversity and colour.
Of course you could choose to keep it all as your own private paradise, and become the "caretaker" for generations of the future just as the former two vendos have done. There are plenty of bonuses to entice the purchaser including a huge off grid 2.6kw solar system with a 5kw inverter (& backup battery generation) for future expansion, 240volt multi outlets, town and tank water with taps located all over the land, 2 x Telstra landlines to carriages, Foxtel enabled with satellite dish, & good TV, Mobile & Net coverage. Services include gas hot water & heater + a wood heater, and a commercial kitchen.
Dare to be different! And be the envy of all your friends into the bargain.
