640 Deep Creek Road Ulmarra, NSW 2460$320,000
“Smalls Forrest Public School”
Lifestyle - Ulmarra NSW
This holding was once home to the Smalls Forrest Public School, which was founded in 1898 and eventually decommissioned in 1975. The holding totals just over 1 acre (4047 square metres) and has a very secluded feel to it, with established trees, a citrus orchard, and views over the neighbouring farmland.
In the residence, downstairs contains a bathroom, along with the entry and beginning of the Rosewood staircase, which leads you upstairs. Built atop the original brick amenities building of the old school, the upper storey was built in 2010 and is of predominantly timber construction, and features hand-crafted windows made from the bearers and joists left over from the original school building. These windows are generous and fill the room with light, plus they provide a real-life canvas of the world outside; views of the neighbours cows, and of the birdlife frolicking in Deep Creek. Here you’ll find a fully open-plan area, consisting of a quaint kitchenette, a lounge and dining area warmed by the wood fired heater, and the bed adjacent to the upstairs ensuite.
This home exudes warmth and yesteryear charm, while being conveniently modern and comfortable inside. One immediately thinks Airbnb, or couples getaway – there’s just something superbly charming about this quaint little place. Being just 6.8 km from the riverside village of Ulmarra ensures that you, or your guests, have the convenience of a local servo and shop nearby for the milk & bread run, and a plethora of art and crafty shops to explore; and of course Cafe Clarence and the Ulmarra Hotel to wine & dine & soak up the local atmosphere. Plus, Wooli beach is just over half an hour away.
Please note the ground level of this property is subject to flooding, however the upper storey is definitely flood-free. In turn, the one acre of land has very productive soils. Town water is connected and with council rates of just $1,050 per annum, this property makes a whole lot of sense. Our vendors would be willing to sell the home furnished, so please discuss this with JoJo upon your inspection.
