GARNDEE-BIRDIN 678 ACRES . MAGNIFICENT HOMESTEAD OVERLOOKING THE MURRUMBIDGEE RIVER

Presenting “GARNDEE BIRDIN”

With a magnificent north facing homestead overlooking the Murrumbidgee River, this superb lifestyle property covers 678.8 acres (274.7 hectares) and includes approximately 2 km of river frontage, enjoying breathtaking panoramic views and total privacy.

The location is a 30 minute drive east of Wagga Wagga NSW, and a one hour flight from Sydney or Melbourne.

This unique parcel offers an opportunity unsurpassed on the Murrumbidgee River

Starting 20 years ago with a blank canvas, the current owner began the development of this property with meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to significantly regenerate the treasured Australian bushland.

The elevated position allows views from inside the homestead to capture the serenity of the river as it flows in from the north before trailing west into the afternoon sun.

From the verandah you will overlook red gum forests and experience unimpeded views of the surrounding countryside; this haven was created for the occupants and nature to coexist in thoughtful harmony.

The passive design elements of this spacious family home ensures residents are comfortable in all seasons: warm on a misty winter morning, and invitingly cool throughout summer.

An opportunity awaits to immerse yourself in nature with the abundance of native birds and wildlife; sit quietly by the riverside to catch a glimpse of a platypus, see wombats, kangaroos and wallabies, echidna and much more.

With access to your own private ‘campground’ paddock, invite family and friends to set up camp and enjoy a riverside bonfire in the winter months; paddle a canoe or take a swim in the summertime. With year round fishing you will enjoy catching murray cod, yellow belly, lobster, yabbies and many other local species.

For horse riding enthusiasts, experience the joy of riding through the undulating paddocks and secluded areas down to the centuries old red gum forests. The outstanding stable block and olympic sized dressage arena will ensure all your equestrian needs are fully met.

Motorbike riders have many options to explore, including areas to create designated dirt bike jumps and tracks.

This country lifestyle opportunity could also lend itself to a Stud Farm; the potential is unlimited.
