HOUSE OF THE WEEK
"Fernhill" 970 Back Kootingal Road
5 beds | 2 baths | 4 cars
Auction September 26
Fernhill is an integral part of the region's history and offers a unique slice of paradise less than 20 minutes from Tamworth.
Formerly a horse stud, it sits on 18.23 hectares or 45 acres of alluvial flats and gently rising grazing country, with a 108 ML irrigation license from the Cockburn River.
The original three bedroom double brick homestead was built in the late 19th century and quality additions and renovations have been added throughout.
Fernhill also has a quaint fully self-contained cottage with two bedrooms, and separate lounge room, kitchen and bathroom.
"Fernhill is a wonderful place to call home," said selling agent Chris Paterson. "It offers plenty of room for you and your family to relax and unwind and is also a haven for the horse enthusiast and small acreage farmer."
There are numerous outbuildings and additions including cattle/horse yards, sheep yards, stables, a large round training yard, steel frame hayshed, machinery shed, storage sheds and a workshop with power, lights, a concrete floor and roller door access.
The home has two outdoor entertaining areas. A large bricked courtyard with grapevines is ideal in summer whilst a north-facing timber deck offers fantastic views over the property for weekday breakfasts and winter afternoons.
For those working from home, a separate office with reverse cycle heating/cooling and a beautiful outlook provides great inspiration.
Fernhill lies within walking distance of the Kootingal village, with services including a doctor's surgery, chemist, post office, supermarket, primary school and police station.
