Our Comboyne home
A Cedar cottage set on two acres
[Front of the house]       Our home is a renovated 1980s architect designed cedar clad timber home with high raked cedar ceilings and full panoramic windows with magnificent views, on 8093.7 square metres of highly fertile volcanic land. Roller blinds are fitted throughout, carpet and slate flooring, covered verandahs and decking. The property is surrounded by large rural properties and is situated on the Comboyne Rd, a sealed road some 5 minutes from the Comboyne township with its community centre, cafe, rural store, service station and club, 30 minutes from Wauchope and 45 minutes from Port Macquarie. Services provided to the property include garbage and recycling, post, phone, NBN broadband and power. Water is supplied to the home from three tanks with a total capacity of some 13,000 gals. and a header tank of 50gals. The house is fitted with a 1.75 Kw solar system, off peak hot water service, reverse cycle split system air conditioner, two slow combustion wood fires and three LPG gas points. The house consists of a lounge room, dining room, family room, granite and stainless steel kitchen with walk in pantry, dishwasher, electric stove, gas hot plates, etc., laundry, 4 bedrooms with built in wardrobes, bathroom and ensuite. A separate cedar clad extended two bay garage, workshop and guest quarters / utility room with toilet, is linked to the house by a covered walkway. The land is gently sloping, made up of the home paddock with formed drive, concrete paths, gardens, chook run with three chook sheds and enclosed vegetable garden. The remaining acre is also fenced with an animal shelter shed and a professionally formed dam (awaiting lining). The gardens, which are fed by polly pipes from the header tank, are surrounded by formed lawns and hedges. Mowing of the home paddock takes less than an hour on the Ferguson zero turn mower. All-in-all, it a little slice of paradise.
