Lifestyle, sustainability and organic living is what you will find at 478 Hogans Rd, Upper Lansdowne. This picturesque property nestled in the highlands of the Upper Lansdowne ranges with views of Mount Coxcomb and the wintergreen and blue colours of the surrounding native bushland.
This home was oriented around the 4 points of the compass, this gives you 4 great sides of the home where you can enjoy a wide verandah made from kiln-dried tallowwood. The timber decking has been deliberately left unsealed to give the beautiful silver-grey colours that the tallowwood possess.
Inside you will find an abundance of space, 3 large bedrooms with huge windows that allow you to wake up to the views that only you will own. A big bathroom that doubles as an ensuite, lined with ripple iron/mini orb gives you a wonderful country feel and allows the décor of the home to flow through to every room.
The kitchen is open to a large lofty living area, where the central brick pillar is the dominant feature. On one side you will find a slow combustion fire and a handmade wood-burning stove on the other. I am promised by the owners that this makes a great pizza oven. Throughout the home, you will find great pieces of recycled history that just helps complete this fairy-tale of an abode.
If we take a wander throughout the yards of this property you will find 28 different fruit and nut trees that include citrus, tropical, along with coffee and tea plants. You have two chook runs and propagating house also exist with a 16x8 colorbond shed with concrete floor as well as a 12x7 zinc-alum shed with concrete floor including power and workshop and 4 bay open machinery shed.
All this is set on 40ha of land with a cleared ridge where the buildings are backing onto timbered country with trails throughout for horse riding, bike riding and natural bush that borders onto the state forest.
Ian And Sue's Philosophy "Virtually everything has another use other than the original one"
There is also an opportunity for horticultural pursuits as there is irrigation available and a chance to also run livestock with a handy set of stockyards and loading race.
To truly understand this home, an inspection is best. I was left speechless and felt very privileged to be invited onto this property.
