“CHAIN OF PONDS”: A SUPERB HOME, BNB, INCOME, LIFESTYLE & POSITION
Mixed Farming - Waterview Heights NSW
WELCOME to your digital inspection of 532 Old Glen Innes Road, Waterview Heights – affectionately known as “Chain of Ponds”.
Please enjoy a look through the photographs of this special family home, watch the video, and absorb the information below. Only a physical inspection will do this property justice, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re looking for a cleverly designed, recently constructed and well-positioned rural property.
This property has been established as a ‘forever home’ and every little detail has been considered to make this property self-sufficient, low maintenance and inclusive of all the details you could wish for in a sophisticated rural property, while still maintaining the convenience of being less than 15km from the Grafton CBD.
Our vendors engaged CM & RL Whyte Builders to bring their dream to life, and in August of 2018, the keys for this superbly special family home were handed over.
With a unique and wonderfully pragmatic design, the home was designed to provide flexibility of family living, while maintaining the option of alternative incomes.
The main residence is just divine; light and airy, overlooking your natural canvas of paddocks, creeks and bushland; while maintaining all the modern perks and practicality to boot. Everything here just makes sense. The wide entrance, the open plan living just perfect for entertaining; the ability to utilise the lounge room as a function room, the butler’s pantry to store the staples (and the wine!), a master bedroom making the most of the north-easterly aspect, and the design of the ensuite allowing two showerheads and no glass screen to have to clean!
Adjoining the main home, and linked by a veranda & breezeway, are three individual bedrooms and ensuites. Our vendors currently utilise these rooms as BNB units, running a fully licensed BNB with high occupancy rates (and a Super Host rating on Air BNB!). Our vendors have enjoyed the income from the BNB as well as meeting people from all walks of life, including many who have become regular guests. Each room is furnished and individually styled and has facilities to make a cuppa – guests are also invited to utilise the fridge and kitchen in the shed for dining. The furniture, linen and TV’s in the BNB rooms are all included in the sale. The BNB ensuites all feature glassless showers, so cleaning is made easy. There is a further two guest rooms in the shed, perfect for visiting family or friends, and again, the furniture in these rooms will also stay with the property.
The shed is HUGE and encompasses a toilet and shower, loads of lock-up storage and space to work, as well as two shipping containers with a skillion between them for additional undercover storage.
This property is entirely self-sufficient, with the only outgoing cost being the $1,195 annual council rates. The home, BNB, and the shed are all powered by a very substantial 15.5KW stand-alone solar system, with enormous battery storage and a back-up diesel generator included in the sale. The set-up is completely automatic – so no need to lift a finger, and has a dedicated 15 amp power point to run a welder. There are seven rain water storage tanks, a substantial vege and herb garden, and you have riparian rights to pump water from the creek.
The property totals 40.05Ha & enjoys a large clearing of flood-free grazing land, along with frontage to Munns Creek & Chain of Ponds, which has spring-fed holes. The rest of the property contains about 26Ha of hardwood timber plantation, and given that a substantial amount of timbered country was recently burnt out by fires, it would be fair to say the value of this nest-egg is expected to increase in the years to come.
“Chain of Ponds” truly is a one-in-a-million property. If the idea of a flexible family home with scope for passive income, a great nest-egg, and peace and serenity appeals to you, please call me.

It’s a home, it’s an income stream, it’s a lifestyle and it’s on the market to be sold!
