25 Avenue Road, Ellangowan
SOLD BY GRANT!
Just 23 minutes to Casino and 47 minutes to the beach at Evans Head, this lovely 30 acre property is the quintessential country estate. The plateau land is easily maintained; about an acre of 'house-paddock' being fenced around the centrally located homestead/sheds, and the remainder ever-so-gently sloping down to the perimeter to allow for grazing or agricultural pursuits. From the home you can look out over the vast views of the mountain ranges to the south-west, treed pockets to the north-west, and over to the three large dams located in each of the corners of the triangular shaped property. With water assured and privacy guaranteed this offering with infrastructure galore is a gem!
The current owner is a top dog breeder, and has set the farm up to accommodate his passion accordingly. There are long exercise runs, a training ring, night and breeding enclosures and multiple quality sheds. You could easily convert these great assets to poultry farming or small to medium animal farming, or continue its current use. And if vehicles are your passion, there's a garage for every one in the family and a couple to spare!
The dwelling is undoubtedly a feature of the property. A huge old Queenslander built in the period between Art Nouveau and Art Deco, it has 5 bedrooms, a living as well as a reception room, dining room a bathroom, separate toilet and laundry room all radiating from a central 'T' shaped hallway still with its original timber to picture rail feature. Add to this a full length enclosed sunroom (family room) the full length of the home at the rear, a double carport adjoining, and a massive deep verandah out front and you have a substantial family home. And apart from those original timber trimmings, the feature of the home is the long banks of original clear diamond leadlight windows, and ribbon-glass french doors. This home is generally in good repair - no big ticket items to replace. There are a few exterior trims in need of some TLC, a lick of paint needed around some windows, and would benefit from a designer/interior refurbishment. But whilst this would certainly value-add, it is not required immediately. Homes of distinction like this one are desirable projects, and are few and far between.
