Meander alongside the picturesque Sixth Creek on Merchants Road to find this hidden home among the hills. Replace traffic noise with delightful birdsong and neighbours with kangaroos and koalas. Just sit back, look beyond the colour filled garden to the valley view beyond and forget about life for a while.

The beautiful bluestone home is nestled in the heart of the 14.5 Hectares (approx.). A large light filled country kitchen, with feature stone wall and sensational combustion stove, overlooks the dining and lounge areas. The home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, office space, plenty of storage and flora filled outlooks from every window. The central Thermalux combustion stove is the pinnacle of contemporary design. Cook all your culinary delights whilst providing heat to 6 radiators throughout the home and, together with a solar hot water system and instant gas back up, all your hot water needs.

The garden features a vast variety of productive fruit trees, citrus, nuts and has a high output vegetable patch. The happiest of chooks live in the rear yard which is also the perfect place for family fun. A large 15 x 6m concrete floored shed with power provides the perfect place for a workshop and machinery storage. There’s an abundance of water storage (over 250,000L), quality Cribb fire system and last refuge bunker. Beyond the lovely mature ornamental trees surrounding the garden the property combines 7 paddocks, stock yard and native scrub with many 4×4 and walking trails.

Basket Range is well known for its fresh fruit harvests and sensational, high altitude, wine production. The community is very welcoming and helpful whilst also understanding the draw to an area such as this is often to relax, escape and wind down. Seeking that secluded weekend escape in the hills? Want the kids to enjoy native scenes over rectangular screens? Look no further, this is a lifestyle that will always be sought after – especially so close to a capital city.
