112 Blackheath Creek Road Kanimbla
4 bed | 4 bath | 2 carWhen you enter the gate of this Little Hartley property you are greeted with a sweeping, uninterrupted view of the whole majestic arc of the Kanimbla Valley/Centennial Glen, framed by the sandstone cliffs of Shipley and the mountains slopes of Mt Victoria. Here the sunsets are sublime, watching the arc of sky fade to stars and the sandstone cliffs glow red. "Evergreen" is rural bliss at its best.
This manageable-sized, 52 hectare property is a wonderful topographical mix of level plateaus, gently sloping cleared grassland and spectacular wooded escarpments. Neighbours are dotted nearby on similar sized properties. It's all set to carry livestock, with fenced paddocks, spacious farm sheds & yards, 5 dams - including one spring fed, providing precious permanent water even in the dry. Easily accessible (20 minutes' drive from Lithgow or Blackheath, 2 hours from Sydney CBD), "Evergreen" is a wonderland of lifestyle possibilities.
The property's blonde brick, tin roofed farm house sits on an expanse of level land with views, surrounded by a hardy, colour & fruit-tree filled home paddock' garden. Only 30 years old and immaculately maintained, it is an extremely comfortable and practical four-season home. Sunny decks and undercover living spaces extend from all four sides of the house, making the most of this idyllic country location. Full of creature comforts, each of the 4 bedrooms enjoys its own ensuite, (including one that is luxuriously appointed with a deep bath for country-life soaks). A parents' retreat (a 1997 extension), features an elegant living area, with polished timber floors, 3 walls of windows to the garden and French doors opening onto the deck. The main living is kept toasty with a large slow combustion wood fire. All the living areas are north-facing, with passive solar-bank flooring, and the house enjoys cross airflow in summer and shaded outdoor breezeways. With a refurbished kitchen - in warm cream, complimented by Italian terracotta tile flooring with stainless steel appliances -there's nothing to do except decorate!
Various outbuildings provide undercover parking, secure storage, room to stable horses - whatever your heart desires. There is a potential, private studio space, partially plumbed and with power, within close proximity to the house. A quiet 300m stroll to the edge of the escarpment sees the land dip away to the south, with glorious views across the rolling hills of the Kanimbla all the way to the wilds of the Cox's River. Positioned high amongst rocks at the head of this infinite amphitheatre is a simple bench, a reminder to take the time to sit and enjoy the absolute serenity of this place.
