23/1157 Stony Chute Road, Nimbin
The romance of this home is unequalled. Tucked in the forest overlooking a wide bend in Webster's Creek, rests this enchanting 3-bedroom cottage. Once an old country home, it was moved to this site around 25 years ago and placed in a breathtaking position making the most of its surroundings. Various owners since have added their creative flair. The drama of the drop from the cliff to the creek was highlighted by the previous owner with the addition of a cascading deck and made safe by the current owner with the addition of a railing.
The house appears 'cottage-like' as you enter through lush tropical gardens onto the porch. But much like Dr Who's Tardis, you enter into a spacious, resort-like living room with high ceilings, French limestone tiled walls and a spectacular view. The living room has bi-fold doors that open out to the deck, like dress circle seats at nature's grand performance. A state-of-the-art open fireplace graces one corner and large skylights keep the home light-filled even on the dullest of days.
The kitchen has the original cottage windows, and a camphor laurel breakfast bar. The dining room extends from the kitchen and is glassed on 3 sides from floor to ceiling immersing you in the surrounding forest.
The 3 bedrooms are all well sized and the master bedroom has the luxury of floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides at the northern end. Great for star gazing at night and bird watching in the mornings.
The bathroom has a clawfoot bath with shower and separate flush toilet.
A separate studio with 2 rooms is partly finished and offers plenty of scope to be used as an artist studio or extra accommodation when completed.
The gardens are lush and colourful, with a mix of tropical and native plants and numerous established fruit trees. There's plenty of room for a veggie patch and access to creek water for gardens as supplied by the community. A short walking track takes you down to the creek flat where, in the shade of tall gums you can choose to sit in the rocky rapids or swim in the deep swimming hole in front of the house. It's another world!
